Sigma 50-500mm f4-6.3 EX APO RF HSM

50_500EX_mdl_1_
Review Date: Mar 31, 2003 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $695.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Great all-around lens. Sharp images (considering I mostly shoot handheld). For a 10x zoom, this lens covers a lot of ground, and does it well.
Cons:
A little heavy. Not as fast as it could be.

Although skeptical at first, I started drooling over this lens after reading many reviews, and I'm glad I finally purchased it. It stays on my camera 90% of the time, and can truly say that it's a great lens. There is no distortion (could be because of D30's cropping factor), images are sharp all the way, and I've found that f/8 seems to be its "sweet" spot.
Although the lens is a bit heavy (around 4 lbs.), and not as fast as it could be/as other lenses are, it's very easy to use, even handheld, and for the price and coverage, it cannot be beat.
