Image source I purchased the lens for around Rs. 8500 from Fort, Mumbai around 1 and half-year ago. According to the seller, the optic elements present in Sigma 70-30mm Telephoto Macro lens is better than Nikon 55-200mm. I had no idea what he meant at that point of time. Later on, I discovered what his words meant. I am using the lens for past 18 months and it has become my primary lens. The lens offers good zoom and decent depth of field. The lens is recommended only for beginners and intermediates on choice. If you have a good …
