Re: Nikon D3000 compatible with Sigma lenses

Unread post by normana53 » Sun Nov 20, 2011 12:26 am

I have the 50-500 sigma - and used it when I had a D40 Nikon - the motor in the lens works great even with the old D40. I was concerned about the weight, but I always carry it by the Lens tripod mount - it works great as a handle. When shooting I hold the lens in one hand and push the shutter release with the other, or I use tripod. I now have D90 that has it's onw internal motor, and the sigma still works like a champ. I have had mine for 4 years and love it!

My Sigma 150-500 and my 300 mm both work great on Nikon D50, D80 and D90.
I personally find the 150-500 a lot lighter and easier to use than my Nikon 80-400, certainly a little longer but lighter and gives excellent results with all three bodies.
