Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG Macro review by joe88
Review Date: 4/27/2014 Would you recommend the product? Yes | Total Spent: $70.00| Rating: 8 

Pros: really sharp lens,nice colors,good cotrast stopped down a few
Cons: plastic body and CA's

very similar to Tamron's equivalent.

naturally, such a lens is not so sharp as a single lens, dued to
this enormous zoom range;it is ok.

wide ope a few weak, but stopped down to f11 really sharp
and high contrast.

I am content with it.CA's must be eliminated and sharpness could be improved by PhSh

Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG Macro review by eyrieowl
Review Date: 8/21/2007 Would you recommend the product? No | Total Spent: $179.00| Rating: 5 

Pros: wide range, relatively compact, macro functionality, price
Cons: slow, not very sharp, doesn't go wide-enough on aps sensor, color cast

This was my first lens for my Nikon d50. Which was my first true digital camera (other than 3mp point-and-shoot i'd gotten with my printer). prior to that, i'd been shooting on a venerable Canon AE-1. I had a cheapie 28-210 zoom on that body (no, I didn't know much about lenses), so when i moved into digital, i went for the same range. this lens...was a decent starter lens to begin to learn digital photography. but i am not sure it'll be going back on my camera again. i'd rather forgo the range for quality and speed. the price wasn't bad, and i certainly have learned from the lens, so, it's not all bad. training wheels for my dslr!
