Sigma 70-300mm f/4-5.6 APO DG Macro Sony Alpha

"I've been using this lens for over a year, and feel it is well worth the money. For a very reasonable price you get a lens that has reasonable sharpness, and an effective macro. There are much cheaper lenses out there and much more expensive ones too. If you are looking for a good zoom lens at a reasonable price, you should put this on your list of top contenders." bhphotovideo.com
