Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM review by andrew720
Review Date: 12/10/2011 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $150.00| Rating: 8 

 
Pros: very compact, fast focussing, image stabilizer works good, sharper than I expected it to be
Cons: some may prefer a 50-250mm or a 50-300mm for a longer reach

I'm pleasantly suprised by this lens, its sharp enough throughout the zoom range and certainly competes with 'own' brand lenses at a similar price point.
The zoom and focus rings are pleasing to use and the lens retains a compact design throughout the zoom range making it a good choice as a telephoto for light travel or if space is an issue.

Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM review by AtominoSLRGear

Pros:
Cons:

Its on our D60 and D300 - we stoped using Nikkor 55-2000 VR. Our lens is at least as good as the Nikkor 55-200. We love the metal bajonet, because we are changing often. The handling of MF is great. See also http://joergvetter.oyla.de/cgi-bin/hpm_homepage.cgi
