Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG IF Macro Aspherical Reviews

Photodo reviews the Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG IF Macro Aspherical and writes;
“If you need a general purpose lens to carry on your camera, and use the long end as much as the wide, then this offering is well worth a look. The excellent resolution figures achieved through the middle to the long end are a pleasant surprise and make this optic one of those hidden bargains. The close focussing ability is a bonus too. “

Ephotozine reviews the Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG IF Macro Aspherical and writes;
“Chromatic aberration is an area where many of this type of lens fall down but although it is present and measurable around the edges of the frame it manages to stay just inside tolerable limits. There is virtually none at the centre of the frame. The digital coating that has been applied universally to the Sigma range has had the effect of improving contrast and colour rendition and this is true of this optic.”

The Sigma 28-200mm zoom macro lens for Nikon Digital SLRs | Rating: ★★★★☆
“The Sigma 28-200mm zoom macro is an excellent lens for the typical portrait or landscape photo.. With my old 28-135, I could use one lens for just about all my photos; I will not be able to do that with the 28-200. Even with these exceptions, however, I do find the 28-200 lens to have very good optics and flexibility.” – by S. Barnhart

Features & Specifications

Sigma 28-200mm f/3.5-5.6 DG IF Macro Aspherical Specifications

The Sigma 28-200mm f3.5-5.6 DG Macro Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras is a compact, high-zoom ratio lens, ideal for full-frame digital SLR cameras. This lens covers all the focal lengths from 28 millimeter wide angle to 200 millimeter telephoto–the most frequently used focal length range. With a maximum diameter of 2.75 inches and length of three inches, this lens is compact and portable enough to be carried anywhere, making it is ideal for travel.

This digitally optimized ultra telephoto lens is equipped with the latest in multi-layer coating technology that reduces both flare and ghosting and ensures an accurate color balance and high definition results. The use of aspherical lens elements in both of the front and rear lens groups effectively compensates for various aberration throughout the entire zoom range. At the 200 millimeter telephoto setting, the lens is capable of macro photography with a 1:3.8 maximum magnification. A zoom lock switch mechanism is provided to prevent the lens from creeping due to its own weight, and to avoid the danger of the lens receiving a shock while it is being carried.
