      I am an enthusiast who enjoys taking pictures of the family. I did some research on a low light lens and found great reviews on this lens. The Nikon version is out of my price point so it was either Tamron or Sigma. I have not been disappointed with my choice. I just got back from a vacation and I am very pleased with my pictures. The 17-50 focal range is ideal for family photos. If you are a beginner and buy a DSLR, do yourself a favor and get a fast lens like this one. This lens takes great pictures in low light and the optic stabilization allows great handheld shots at 1/40 of a second. I use a Nikon D5100.

      Excellent choice for a kit upgrade

      This is a noticeable improvement from the otherwise respectable Nikon kit 18-55 lens. The Sigma is a fast / constant f/2.8 and produces sharp images throughout the focal lengths. When shot with any of the recent Nikon DX bodies which can shoot at ISO 12800+, you won't be using a flash as often as before. With an f/2.8 aperture, you will also be able to shoot at a faster shutter speed and increase the chances for a sharp image. As expected, it is a bigger/heavier lens than the 18-55 kit lens and it doesn't have the tank-like build quality of the professional Nikon lenses that cost 3x as much as this lens. The only negative that I see is that the zoom ring works in the opposite direction than standard Nikon lenses but I think I can live with this small inconvenience.

      Anyone looking for a solid zoom lens in the 17-55mm range has probably had their eyes on this lens, and I'm happy to say it's fantastic. It's very well built, focuses fast, and is very sharp. I use it on a Nikon D5000 and the first thing I noticed was the wonderful color rendition. It's tack sharp as well, and doesn't get lost focusing. The only thing I don't like is that the zoom ring turns the opposite direction than my other lenses, but that's a minor inconvenience. If you can't take great pictures with this lens, it's not the hardware that needs upgrading.

      Serious kit lens upgrade

      This was intended as an upgrade for my d7200, although it also gets use on my d3300. Massive differences on the d7200, as you have better ISO control. On the d3300 you do have have the f2.8 advantage, but not as much ISO control. In full sun (or studio lighting), you do get a slight edge, still. Pros - f2.8, build is a LOT more substantial than the kit 18-55 less. On the d3300 it seems a bit like you are shooting with a massive lens and a tiny body. Cons - it's not the 18-35 f1.8, but then it doesn't cost as much as a 18-35 either.

      I was looking for a good day and night travel and walk around lens with a wide angle view to use with my Nikon D7100 and found the perfect combination with this lens.. I love this lens! Its fast, super sharp and works flawlessly with the D7100, I couldn't be more happy with the results I'm getting.

Can't wait to take this lens on my next vacation. !!It's really amazing!! and for the price WOW!! it's a steal.

      This lens is perfect for anything. I prefer prime lenses but its not always functional to carry a bag full of focal lengths and keep changing them. This one has great range, gives very sharp results, wide apature at 2.8, and cost so much less than Nikon glass. Very satisfied!

      The lens is good and the only thing I hate is the autofocus is so loud that when filming you can hear it on playback. Very disappointing. I have to film without autofocus unless I'm filming with the intent of having music or voice over sound. Otherwise it's good for the price.

      After all of the reviews online, I've went ahead and purchased this Sigma lens. It takes amazing pictures on my D7100. The only drawback is that the preview pic stays on until you press it clear, not a big problem for me, but can't beat the quality and price for this lens!
