Excellent Tele Zoom for the money | Rating: ★★★★★
“Color is balanced and contrasty and details are superb! The weight is very reasonable. The collar is excellent. The AF works beautifully indoor in regular household light. Very fast and quiet, unlike anything I’ve read on the web (“noisy, slow, hunting”)..” – by Luving it

Can’t afford the Bigma? Buy this! | Rating: ★★★★★
“This lens is clearly its equal in everything but zoom range. I was very surprised when I purchased mine, used, and discovered that its sharpness was much better than I expected, and its autofocus speed every bit fast enough for challenging subjects like sports..” – by FredM

Great Performer | Rating: ★★★★★
“This ultra telephoto lens is possibly the best bang for your buck in the focal its focal range. If there is a better one in its class I’ve yet to see it. Manual Focus ring is well placed, easy access, we all like that, right? Sharpness has not been an issue for me at all; you will need a tripod in most situation, but you should be using one all the time, shame on you if you don’t!.” – by Richard S. Haynes

A great lens for the price. | Rating: ★★★★★

Great for sports | Rating: ★★★★★
“I bought this lens to shoot pictures of my son’s football games. It has been fantastic and very clear. Lens creep is an issue but not one that has really bothered me..” – by John Skowronski

Great lens | Rating: ★★★★★
“I can’t hold the darn thing steady under 1/100 sec, so with a tripod, it’s awesome, otherwise you’ll need a steady hand in lower light. March update – I’ve gotten better at hand-holding this lens using shutter-priority on my Canon 40D, especially in strong light, but with a tripod it really does do a fabulous job. “ – by JK in NY

Sigma APO 170-500mm F5-6.3 DG | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The lens overall is excellent, except for the fact that there is NO lens lock to keep it from creeping or dropping when you carry it over your shoulder. That feature is on my other two lenses and I really would like it on this Sigma. So far, that is the only con I can find about this lens..” – by Michael Hanlon
