|bluecinnabar||Just received mine in the mail today. Played around with it and like the size and weight, one thing concerns me, there is some noticeable resistance when I turn the zoom dial on the lens going between 18 to 250mm and back. I don't know if this is normal, I don't hear or feel any grinding but it just seems odd, quality control issue? Wondering if I should RMA it because of this issue or just keep it.|

That said... a better generalization is that for "most people", a 70-200mm or 70-300mm is probably too long for them unless they are mainly looking to do outdoor portraits, nature or sports. However, if you are using a 35mm/FF camera, the answer changes quite a bit because 70-200mm becomes a much more useful focal range.

<s>Coupon code is not working for me now. Is this deal dead?</s>
Yep, dead deal. Nevermind.

Can this work for Pentax? Or can anyone recommend a zoom lens for the K5 so I can take better pictures of my kids playing sports. New DSLR user, so the camera and lens pretty much have to do all of the work.

How do you apply the coupon code?
I tried VME03 from buydig.com and it doesn't work.
When I go through the checkout at V.me and I couldn't find any place to apply the code.

|liveaslion||I also got confirmation email from Buydig that the lens is The Updated version of 2012, not 2009.|

|nautec||As I had posted earlier, if you look at the descriptions of the lenses, you see that the BuyDig description matches the newer 2012 model. 62mm filter size, smaller overall lens body size, weight, etc.|

THere are 2 version of the Sigma 18-250mm lenses, both are DC macro HSM.
* the 1sr version (old version): has a 72mm filter ring, offers OS system for all mounts (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax...)
* The second version (Updated version): seems to has an improve in performance. It uses 62MM FILTERS. For Sony A-mount, the OS system is removed. The lens now is more compact.
The easy way to know which version of Sigma 18-250mm is to look at the filter ring size! Don't look at the name, it may confuse you.
