Pros

Built quality is solid, balanced and rugged - feels natural in the hand when paired with an average-sized SLR

Sharpness and clarity are virtually unparalleled at the price point - competitors in this range are prone to blurring and graininess at high zoom levels

Cons

Auto-focus mechanism is fairly noisy - not conducive to close-range wildlife shots that may startle subjects

1 agrees

2-step manual focus may inhibit spontaneous shooting - involves a considerable learning curve amongst inexperienced users

1 agrees

f2.8 aperture speed struggles with low-light applications - indoor settings may be difficult to capture, especially when moving objects are involved

1 agrees

Stock calibration may not be suited to all camera types - many users report having to send their lens back to Sigma for manual readjustment
