    Cons: Big and heavy, especially compered to the previous versions.

    Pros: Great IQ, very sharp even wide open in the whole range from 50-150mm. Very useful OS, pro build.

    Summary: If you managed to solve some problems with AF, you will have the best DX telephoto lens.

    Cons: Weight Size Lens Hood doesn't lock firmly.

    Pros: Image Quality OS

    Summary: I just traded my two 2008-vintage Nikon D300 bodies for a pair of D7200s and was taking a look at my lenses. I was kinda late with regard to this lens and Sigma stopped production before I even knew about it. However, I was lucky and found an EX+ lens at a well-know online used camera dealer. I've only had it out a couple of times, but I love this lens. I did a quick focus tune on one of my D7200s and I am so pleased with the resolution, contrast, and overall look of my pictures. The OS is effective. Yes...It is a bit heavy, and taller than the Tokina 50-135 it replaced, but it is worth that weight. Next summer I want to try it paired with my Sigma 120-300 shooting soccer -- using this instead of my Nikon 70-200 VRII. Then both lenses will zoom the same way. :) If you can find a good one used -- GET IT!
