    Have the lens for cannon,also have the Nikon version.the lens is good for my needs and not always practical to carry additional lenses. The only downside is that you have to disable the continuous auto focus when using the lens which at first I thought something was wrong with the lens but further investigation found problem was the continuous focus issue. Maybe if I spent the money to get the equivalent cannon lens this feature wouldn't have had to be turned off but it works for me . Always remember what purpose for purchasing item and may not always work for others. Would recommend.

    This is a great do it all lens at an excellent price. The 18-250 range is perfect to allow you to travel with just one lens. It feels like a very solidly built product. It feels a bit heavier than I expected but isn't too heavy. My only issue is the lens drifting fully extended as you carry it around. It locks in the 18mm position which does help and you adjust to keeping your hand on the zoom ring if you're leaning over taking a picture. It's a slight annoyance until you adjust but minor compared to the convenience of traveling with one lens. It works great with my Canon SL1.

    Since I feel a bit green when it comes to dslr cameras, I rely heavily on my more experienced friends for advice. They recommended this lens in place of the two separate lenses (an 18-55 and a 55-250) that came with the [Canon] camera. The advantage, of course, is not having to constantly switch them, unless you have a specialty lens you want to use. Now that I have had this one for a couple months or so, I can also recommend it. Happy shooting!

    I bought this lens and took it on a trip to test it out. at 250 it is blurry to me, and I am not a seasoned photographer. I wasn't happy with the colors, either. I bought it specifically for the range, but then found a Canon 18-135 USM for a good price and tried it out. It is so much better than the Sigma and I quickly returned the Sigma. I would save your pennies to buy a Canon.

    So far so good. It's taking me a while to learn how to get best results i.e. when it's better to use manual and when to use auto focus, but I'm getting some decent enough photos, and don't miss having to carry around both a regular lens and a long one!

    I love my new lens, now I don't have to carry my long lens with me. My old one did not have image stabilization, but this new one does, what a difference. The only thing I don't care for is having to unlock the zoom, although it is nice that it locks so it doesn't creep open.

    I love this lens it’s and all in one for myself and takes great pictures. Only thing I dislike about this is the lens cover that comes with it does not stay on and the littlest touch it falls off and that’s not good in my eyes.

    After using this Sigma and comparing it to my friends camera that I borrowed with a more expensive lens on it I saw no difference in the quality of the video footage.... So if your looking to save money but not compromise on quality then this is the lens for you!
