Aaaahhhh, I bought a Nikkor 55-300 recently. This would've saved me quite a few quid.

Would this fit a nikon d3200 body?

Yes, fits all Nikon F mount

would have jumped on it, but am not a prime member anymore!!!

Seems to be £90 at Currys.

that's the lower spec model without APO selling for £90 at Currys, this model sells for £150 at Currys http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/cameras-and-camcorders/photography-accessories/lenses/sigma-70-300-mm-f-4-5-6-dg-apo-telephoto-zoom-lens-with-macro-for-nikon-20965701-pdt.html#srcid=11026

In my opinion APO is a must.

Any owners of this lens care to share their experience?

Good price, but AF is not a best one. No image stabilization - for a lens that's over 0.5kg heavy is not a best thing.

OOS now but still available to order for once Amazon receive more

You can buy a month's prime membership for £7.99 if you really wanted this.

Remember, 70-300mm is a 35mm sensor rating. If you're using this on a DX camera, it'll function like a 105-450mm lens.

I bought this last week:

Would this lens be as good for close up (dental) images?

Bought this a couple of month ago and have been really disappointed with it. Struggles with capturing detail and images appear soft.

Edited by: "brilly" 19th Dec 2016

this was my first zoom lens when i started photography, for the price it's a very good entry lens, ideally don't go to max zoom (say 280-290mm or so) as it does soften slightly at full zoom. 'Macro' mode is very good, albeit not a true macro lens (fabs35 is a proper macro lens, but at a different price scale - lol)

I bought mine for £115 about 10yrs or so ago, from abroad too, so this is a pretty good price.

I have since upgrade to a 100-400mm L lens as i needed the extra reach, but can't compare on price though.

Used to have the Canon version of this lens, it's not the fastest AF but OK for occasional use and good value at this price - obviously you get what you pay for and I cant afford L series

I suspect your Nikkor will be a better lens. I have the slightly older version of the Sigma lens and the images are disappointingly soft at mid-full zoom. Always worth reading reviews of lenses before purchase. It was cheap when I bought it, but in the long run I wish I'd paid more and got a sharper lens.

​Yes absolutely love it. Have the Canon mount & it's been on a 350d & 1000d its a good solid lens, it has its flaws the obvious being 300mm with no IS but tripod mount it with fast exposures & it does a good job.

Absolutely brilliant for wildlife shots, brilliant flexibility due to range covered. I paid £150 in 2006 or so I think & pleased with it still in use now.

Where else can you get 70-300mm for under a ton? It's a real no brainer even if you're unsure if you need the range it covers

​Try another very happy with mine after 10 years ownership plus its a 70-300mm lens for the price of a 50mm prime you can't expect perfection

​I owned one for 2 years. Bought it for some ridiculously cheap price on eBay. Seller had a dozen. Wish I'd bought the lot.

Loved the lens. It had a few limitations but as long as you accept that, you'll be happy with it.

This lens probably sits in between the Nikkor 70-300G and the Nikkor 55-300. Speaking from experience I know that the 70-300 is about as sharp as a butter knife, I own one, so I would imagine at the price this is slightly better. But if I was buying a basic entry level tele-photo lens I would get probably be looking on the used market for the 70-300 tamron VC, as this is a great lens and is superior in optical performance and has image stabilisation and it can be picked up for around 150. I have used the Nikkor 70-200 2.8 VR II, 70-300 4.5-5.6 VR, 500 f/4 and many other lenses and the tamron can keep up with them, this lens almost certainly won't be able to. Though saying that it is cheap and would make a good addition to an entry level kit or Christmas present for a Nikon user, heat.

Except Nikon DX-stamped lenses. At this end of the market, I'd suspect that's what most people would be changing from.

At full zoom (300mmm) you'd need to be down to about 1/500th of a second at least, or else using a tripod. Just sayin'.

Avoid this....can be used only on a tripod since it lacks image stabilization !

At the time of posting, Amazon had 15+ Nikon in stock, I would call their customer service to see when the Nikon version stock will be replenished. Mine is out for delivery today.

£149 now

Oh no, Amazon must have increased due to supply and demand. Good thing is , whoever purchased on backorder after it sold out will be honoured the lower price as Amazon offer Price Guarantee when you pre order, I'm pretty sure.

correct, I have the OS stabilized version brand new unused, I never bought the camera itself if anybody wants a part exchange or even to buy it.
