Not knowing all the details I now know this lense was sold to me. Taking nothing away from Sigma who produce great value for money equipment this lense without the OS is a disappointment.
I first thought that I couldn't work the focus but after a photographic course and spending a lot of time with the lense (handheld, good light, stationary objects )the conclusion is that the lense is poor. The downfall is its focusing.No pictures are actually coming out with great sharpness at most zoom levels.Extended its to difficult to hold still due to its built.
My advice to everyone - save some money and buy a lense always with IS; OS or VC in its class and model
Can you tell me, if this lens will work with the D5000 Nikon?
The lens the others on the review must of received was a bad issue. Used on my Sony 390 I get great results, all the way up to 300 and cameras built in teleconversion of 2 produces a 900 mm 35 mm shot. Macro was availiable throught entire range. For its price, the Sony version takes awesome shots, all were hand held, the no parking signs were quite clear and readable at 3 blocks away. The light weight of the lens and anti shake of the Sony combo makes for a good lens IE at the zoo. This lens takes extremely sharp pictures mated with the Sony 390. The lightness of the lens makes handhelds easy compared to its brother heavyweight 70-400which requires a tripod, my handhelds with it is to cradle the camera and lens in my lap (since I'm in a wheelchair)It's a super lens when mated to a Sony.So I highly rate the Sony sigma 70-300 for its price superior.
hi i have a sony and it takes amazing pictures even at full zoom buy a sony they are amazing camera's
