    Its good not Great!

    Sigma is known for making lenses for the price range that suits amateur photographers who can't afford the Nikon or Canon counterparts. And let me tell you Sigma does pretty well.
    With the 70-300 F/4-5.6 Macro, they haven't let you down completely only because you are getting a pretty good and a neat price. The only other lens that might compete or beat this by a slight margin is the Canon 55-250mm F/4-5.6 IS. And that too because of the Image Stabilization that this model of Sigma 70-300mm ...

    Value for Money...My first and only zoom lens

    A wonderful lens for my Canon EOS 400D. Love the macro function. Picture quality is top class...am not a professional...just a hobby, so my idea of quality may not match that of others.

    Did not purchase this on Flipkart, but from a camera/lens store in 2009. Paid about 12,500/- at that time...but no regrets at all, I have had close to 3 years of great photos as a result, particularly candid portraits that I could not have had without this lens. And a few more taken in the forest

    Pros:
    G...

    nice lens

    I bought this lens a few days back and it works quite good. I am not a professional photographer, so I think it serves my purpose nicely. However the only thing it lacks is Canon's Image Stabilizer facility...In low light conditions camera shake occurs and it's very difficult to get a good shot..a tripod might help but it's again difficult to carry one everywhere you go. In good light conditions you can capture nice scenes. Another problem is that the lens is quite heavy. But the real fact is...

    Be sure know what this lens can and can't do

    When we think of a telephoto lens, we think its for wildlife, birding or to catching anything that is hard to access from close. I got this lens for wildlife and I am unhappy as there is huge distortion when you click image. Its impossible to get a steady pic of any animal moving (bird in action is a remote possibilty) as there is no Image Stabilization in this cam. If you are looking for landscape, then probably this lens might help (i dont like to believe so). My recommendation is avoid thi...

    Good for people who desperately want a telephoto lens after being exhausted with the kit lens (18-55) lens

    I recently bought this lens from Flipkart. I had left home early on the day it was to be delivered so it couldn't be delivered on the first day. I arranged for a next day delivery by calling Flipkart, which they did without any problem. Great service by Flipkart!

    This lens is good if you want to try shooting subjects at a distance, which you couldn't do earlier with the 50mm or the 18-55mm kit lens. So, if someone desperately wants a telephoto zoom lens after getting bored with the kit lens ...

    Value for money

    First of all, there is no comparison between canon 55-250 mm and this lens of Sigma..
    true that under low light situations you will need a tripod almost 90 out of 100 times due to lack of IS...but then when you look at the price, it is actually less than half of the price of the Canons...I own it and I believe that it's worth every penny..One should get this before Sigma follows Canon and increases the lens price for Canon mount lenses..I should add...I took few spectacular shots of birds fly...
