Sigma 24-135mm f/2.8-4.5 Aspherical IF

sigma24_135
Review Date: Dec 1, 2005 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $249.95 | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: Awesome price, great range (24-135), not that big for the aperture and range, very sharp at 5.6+, minimum aperture of 32.
Cons:
AF is noisy, cheap finish, zoom ring gets loose with time, very soft at 24mm-2.8f, bad access to the aperture ring.

I'm overall very satisfyied with that lens. 24mm is a nice wide angle (you just don't use it at 2.8). When going around to places where it wouldn't be safe to switch lens every 10min, this range is very useful.

You pay for what you get... It is not a top class optic, but for 300$ or so, you get a lot more for your money with Sigma than you'd get from Nikon.
