Review Date: Apr 26, 2004 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Versatility. All in one, practical, light weight. Good customer support at Sigma. A perfect travel lens for hobbyist photographer.
Cons:
Less than excellent image quality.

I have had this lens for a few years now. I use it on my Canon EOS film camera. I think for a hobbyist it is a wonderful travel companion, but it is not a serious lens for pro use. The auto zoom function stopped working, but Sigma fixed it for me within a week. That happened in year 2 or 3, so the unit was out of warranty, the cost was about $55.

A note to Ohansen, there is a lens lock that prevents the lens from extending while not in use. The lock looks like the Auto/Manual focus switch and it is close to the mount.
