p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Anyone familiar with the Sigma 17-70 DC F/2.8-4.5 (nikon) lens & D3200??


(Please note that I shoot Canon and I am not familiar with Nikon)
I don't see very much information on this lens. I was curious if anyone can help me. Should this lens autofocus on a D3200, or any camera for that matter? I am asking because when I search this lens I find that most the tab to choose autofocus, but the lens I have does not and no where on the lens does it say autofocus or AF and it will not AF on the D3200. I don't have another Nikon camera to test it on. Thank you in advance.
This is the lens: http://www.dpreview.com/news/2006/1/18/sigma17-70

D3200 cannot AF with Sigma lens without HSM.

If you want AF on D3200, get the later HSM version.

Thank You so much. I just wanted to make sure the lens was not broken. Like I mentioned before I know nothing about Nikon.

The second verion of that lens, which is a 2.8-4 instead of 4.5, DOES have an HSM. For the price it's a great piece of glass.
