Low price taken into consideration in rating. Excellent on older bodies, but just mediocre on higher resolution 24MP bodies.
Feels a bit cheap but this lens held up well and was very versatile.
Sigma 10-20mm F4-5.6 EX DC HSM
Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM
Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art
I rated this higher when I first bought it many years ago, but it doesn't compare to the newest Tamron, thus I lowered it's rating. It was best in it's class when it was introduced, but it shows it's age now.
Very sharp, no compatibility issues. Sharpest lens I own and one of my favorites to shoot with.
Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM
Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD
Tamron SP 150-600mm F5-6.3 Di VC USD G2
Glass is very good, not as good as G2. Mechanically problematic. Auto-focus occasionally just gives up, VR quit working after 2 years (being returned for repair). Collects a lot of dust (poor sealing).
Glass is very good but mechanically this lens still has problems. Auto-focus just gives up occasionally.
