SIGMA 17-50MM LENS NIKON F.28 LARGE APETURE LENS
I bought this lens to use with a new Nikon D7200. As with all third-party lenses, you take the risk of compatibility issues and I seem to have run into a small one here. However, it is not really a deal breaker.
This lens is everything I imagined! It is a great all around lens with a wide range of capabilities! I took this on my most recent backpacking trip and it's great for (almost) everything: soft water, astrophotography, portraits, landscapes! The lens has a nice weight to it and sturdy build! The auto focus is fast and if I do say so myself I think this is an absolutely georgeous lens! If you're looking for a high quality all around good lens, then I would highly recommend this!
I am an aspiring concert photographer, and this is generally my go-to lens. It's basically the crop sensor equivalent of the 24-70mm 2.8 lens that I would love to have but at a fraction of the price. I'm sure the other is a much nicer, sharper lens, but this one gets the job done. It's a great lens for the money! It sometimes has difficulty autofocusing in the super dark venues, but it does very well as long as there is even a little bit of light on my focal point.
The nice thing about modern DSLR's is that they come with a kit lens that covers most of the focal lengths you would typically need. The bad thing is that these kit lenses aren't very good unless you shoot jpeg's in Auto.
I do photography for both business and pleasure. I bought this lens for weddings and social events. I have Canon L series lenses which are amazing and this lens performs right up there and for half the price. I researched this lens and I've seen the pros and cons. If your that concerned about any of the cons this lens may have then your better off using a prime lens rather than any telephoto lens as they all have cons. Nature of the beast. Great lens, great price!!
I have been using this lens extensively for the past 3 months, have taken it to our tour to Ladakh. I am happy to say that it came out in flying colors...and satisfied my every requirement. I used a D5300 body along with it. I will list few PRO/CON that I found along with some shots
Aufgrund der tollen Schärfe und hohen Lichtstärke fotografierte ich bislang am liebsten mit Festbrennweiten. Dazu habe ich mir aus dem Canon Sortiment Linsen zwischen 24mm und 100mm zugelegt. Tolle Schärfe, tolles Bokeh! Der Nachteil ist, dass man mit einer Festbrennweite nicht so flexibel ist wie mit einem Zoom-Objektiv. Man kann eben nicht alles haben.
