Michael, Maidenhead Live, enjoy each day

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I have a Canon 5D with 3 Sigma EX DG lens covering the range from 17 to 200 mm. The reason I purchased this lens is because when you are on holiday, a family day out, or at a party, with 3 lens you never seem to have the right lens on your camera to be ready for the 'photograph of the moment'. As the day goes on, your gear seems to get heavier and bulkier.
With the Sigma 28-300 f/3.5-6.3 all that has changed.
It is a light,compact lens, a pleasure to use and ready for that 'photograph of the moment'.
Also the photo image throughout the lens range is very good.
This Sigma product is very good value for money.
Bad points:
None, how can there be for the the price you pay for the lens.

Good points:
This is an all round lens solution for the Canon 400D. Where previously I'd carry three or four lenses, now I only carry one.

Bad points:
Because of the aperture rating this isn't a lens for indoor photography unless you have a decent flash. However for outdoor and general photography this is a good solution.

Neil, Stockport Artistic

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Very light, easy to use! Decent lens, lengthy zoom
Bad points:
When I got the lens, I hardly used it to macro or zoom into objects, but recently I've used it, and the quality is very very poor when zoomed in, like the lens is cloudy, but it works fine when you are zoomed out and photographing an object far away. And as the lens shows 'S28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DG MACRO (CANON AF)' The Macro doesn't actually differ from the problem above - Checking the picture on the screen, will always have like a cloudy effect, as if the lens was steamed up.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Great flexibility of range.
Bad points:
Picture quality isn't the most fantastic but that's the trade-off with going for a cheaper lens option. I'm still very happy with the lens.
