    Cheaper and better than the Nikon LF-1

    0 5/5 Shane O. Laake "camera nerd" (Columbus, OH) - See all my reviews, May 16, 2011

    Better Seal, Easier "On/Off's"

    After I purchased the relatively new 55-300mm lens, I noticed that it shipped with a different rear cap than any other lens I have purchased. This was the LF-4 cap. After making note of this, I began paying attention to the practical differences between the LF-4 and the original LF-1.First, the LF-4 is much easier to grip than the LF-1. The two differences are the thicker and longer ribs and the matted finish of the plastic on the exterior. Both of these combine for easier "on-and-off's" during lens changes, especially if your hands are somewhat damp, for whatever reason.Secondly, the LF-4 has a flange that increases the coverage for the rear of the lens body. This certainly seems to provide more of a weather-tight seal, exposing less aluminum to the environment. As for the precision of the fit between the lens and the LF-4, this seems equal to the LF-1. However, with the improved grip, it is possible to tighten it down more to the lens body, especially... 5/5 D. Baumwald (Gainesville, FL USA) - See all my reviews, August 1, 2011

    Nikon LF-4: New evolutionary essential for every Nikkor Lens

    As camera owners, we all go crazy at times, finding ways to protect the front element of our lenses by purchasing filters, lens cleaners, lens hoods and such. Yet what is forgotten so often is that it's the crucial rear lens element that the light passes through just before it reaches the sensors on our cameras.If you own a Nikon DSLR, regardless of which model it is, then the should be considered as an essential for good lens storage and protection. These are made from hard plastic, and they will protect that critical rear element on your Nikkor lens from smudges, scratches and dust. This is the right rear lens cap for all Nikkor lenses for DSLRs and will fit almost every Nikon F-mount lens ever made, and that also includes teleconverters.The first time that I attended the old traveling Nikon... 5/5 John Williamson (NYC & Bucks County, PA) - See all my reviews, September 20, 2012

    One of the best lens for portrait and low light photography. Please check if your camera require AF-S lens instead

    I don't even know where to start. This lens produces sharp pictures and great color and contrast. And for its price (which seems to climb recently), it is worth more than 5 stars rating. I initially get this lens for low light action and sport photography (as this lens is famous for being one of the fastest lens together with its brother 50mm f/1.4), but I also found out that this lens is also perfect for portrait and other general purposes (macro etc). This is definitely a very versatile lens.It is important to note that you will need camera with internal AF motor (D90, D300, D600, D700, D800, D7000, etc) for this AF lens autofocus to work properly. If your camera is D40/D60/D3000/D5000 series (no internal AF motor), you will need to get the AF-S type lens, otherwise if you get this AF lens, only the manual focus will be available to you.And as much as I want to encourage everyone to buy this lens right away, let me mention some of the limitation that you... 5/5 Sidarta Tanu (Richmond, VA USA) - See all my reviews, October 8, 2006

    Dollar for dollar the best buy in a bright sharp lens

    0 5/5 Albert J. Valentino (New Jersey) - See all my reviews, November 28, 2004

    Possibly a bad sample?

    I was surprised to find, after reading so many positive reviews of this lens, that the copy I received was so fuzzy at wide-open apertures that I could see it on UN-MAGNIFIED images right on my D90's 3" screen.All lenses lose sharpness at wide apertures: this is a matter of basic physics and is the result of something called spherical aberration. Some are much better than others though, thanks to better optical designs that more effectively correct for this tendency. The 35mm f/2, for example, is very good wide open; the 85mm f/1.8 is decent (and very appropriate for portrait use). My copy of the 50mm f/1.8 lost both sharpness and significant contrast as f/1.8 was approached. I would quantify it as follows:f/1.8: very fuzzy (well beyond "soft"), reduced contrast, almost un-useablef/2.8: still quite soft, much improved contrastf/4: slightly soft, good contrastf/5.6: sharp, good contrastf/8: very sharp, good contrastThese... 3/5 Glenn Carpenter (Golden, Colorado) - See all my reviews, February 20, 2009

    No frills, solid construction

    A solid aluminum construction, with simple to understand marking (red circle) to indicate where you should connect the adapter to the NEX-5 (the white circle on the body). Just twist until you hear a click from the body. Do the same with the lens and you are good to go.The adapter came in a yellow box and wrapped in plastic inside the box. But there's no instructions so I hope the above description is useful enough. There's no aperture control on this adapter so you cannot use the "G" class lens properly as the aperture is set electronically via the body of Nikon cameras.There's two issues with picking from only the "D" class lenses. 1. They just don't have that many variety compare to the G class. I picked up a 50mm F1.8, which leads me to the 2nd issue. 2. The "D" class lenses are made for full frame cameras. On the NEX-3/5 with the APS-C sensor, there's a 1.6x crop factor, which basically means the 50mm is really a 80mm lens.

    Good telephoto lens if you're on a tight budget

    I disagree with Jeff Kershaw's review for the older version of this lens (Sigma 70-300mm APO Super), in that it's very unfair to compare this lens to a L series lens, as those lens start at over $500 due to it's very specific high-grade optics manufacturing process. To compare this lens to a lens that starts at over 4X the price is like comparing a Honda Civic to a Porsche. Like the civic, this Sigma lens is well rounded, good for beginner and consumer SLR photographers, and maybe some "pro-sumer" on a tight budget, or even students. For the price, this lens is a bargain, as I've been doing a lot of research before buying this lens (price range in the $130-225 for telephoto). What I liked most about this is the APO lenses, which prevent reflection inside the lens which creates "ghosting" (inverted light ghostly shadow that appers on your image) which is usually apparent in nightshots. During the day APO lenses decrease those "purple fuzzies" (chromatic aberration) you see against high... 4/5 E. Song (New York, NY) - See all my reviews, October 24, 2005

    Excellent

    I rarely write reviews for stuff I buy on Amazon, but I felt I needed to share my thoughts on this lens.Sigma has always been a better "out of the box" experience than Canon, which unfortunately does not see fit to ship a $6 hood for a $600 lens. Sigma gives you a carrying case and a hood. The "feel" of this lens is excellent. It's tight (no focus creep), and a sort of rubberized matte finish that just screams "pro". Top marks here.From an optical standpoint, the lens is incredibly good, considering the price. I fired off about 70 shots outside to test the aperture at the different focal ranges. Yes, there is some softness at 300mm, but this can be mostly offset by stopping it down to 4.0. The rest of the focal range is fine. I used my Rebel XT and a Canon UV filter (50mm) for the tests. In the macro mode, there's excellent contrast and saturation, and very good bokeh.Focus is a little slow, but then maybe I'm spoiled by the Canon glass, which... 5/5 simlife (Phoenix, AZ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
