8 out of 10 points and recommendedThis is a very nice compact lens to carry. Fast to auto focusLittle on the plastic feel.
I purchased this lens used on e-bay, the lens sold new for around $351.00, but can be purchased used between $115.00 to $150.00 U.S. dollars. It is small, and light weight and is a good walk around lens. Since I purchased a AF-S 17-35mm f2.8 zoom, I haven't use this lens as much as I used to. But it does produce very good photo's when used.reviewed January 8th, 2007 (purchased for $131)

This is one very, very sharp lens. If you want to do close up macro photography is is one of the lens you should have in your bag. It's MSRP price is around $630.00 but can be purchased used for around $300.00. Get one you will not regret it.reviewed January 8th, 2007 (purchased for $281)

I did a lot of research before purchasing this lens. I read the reviews on a number of macro lens. I already owned a AF 60mm f2.8 Nikkor, but it at time didn't allow me to get close enough to bug and or small moving creatures that I was trying to photograph. This len does that. I almost purchased a Nikon AF 200mm f4.0, but I like the f2.8 speed that this Sigma gives me. All in all it is a very good lens. Plus I like being able to remove the tripod collar.reviewed January 8th, 2007 (purchased for $550)

Because I still shoot film, I purchased this lens. I really like the push-pull zoom function compair to the rotary on most zooms. It's only draw back is it is quite heavy, and after you spent an hour or two with your camara and this lens around your neck to feel it. But the photos it delivers are tack sharp.reviewed January 8th, 2007 (purchased for $275)
