I had this lens for about 2 weeks, comparing it against my Nikon 18-200 VR f3.5-5.6.
How did it compare?

The sigma is half the price, and all vacation lenses perform in a mediocre way any way.
The pros of the sigma- lighter, smaller

The cons of the sigma- vignetting across all focal lengths. It usually delivered a darker looking picture. The focus is the reverse of what a Nikon uses, annoying. Picture quality over 75mm seemed to be softer than the Nikon.

In the end I did not keep it, but if I had owned thus before the Nikon, I would not have spent another $400 plus to own the Nikon.
