Wow.....great results with the Sigma......fine detail and color saturation...
It's been my experience with consumer level glass that you have to learn their limitations and then learn to work around them.
Most any modern glass is good enough for 90% of what most on this forum is going to use it for.

The 50mm Nikkor I had on my Nikon S2 from the 1950's is, in some ways, not as good as the modern kit lens but in its day was
used by many of the best photographers of the time.

From what I have seen there's not much of a correlation between expensive gear and good images in my opinion.

Although I own the 55-300 and am excited about its potential, I thought I would gratuitously show a couple shots from the Sigma APO. This is on a Canon but it really served me well through the years. A very solid choice for anyone on a budget.
