    Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO Super MACRO

    Guys, i've a D70s and i'm wondering if this lens can actually autofocus with my camera?
    Does it work the same way as how a 18-55mm kit would work?

    I have both D70s and Sigma lens. No problem for AF.

    This Sigma lens don't have internal AF motor like 18-55mm kit lens, so it is different. But as user, you will only notice speed different to achieve focus between them.

    Arto.

    Yeah the lens works fine with the D70s. Had a colleague who used to on the above mentioned configuration, works well. Take pretty good shots. You might find the AF a little slow if you try to cover sports action. Other than that, its a pretty good piece of lens.

    Why not? Make sure you get the correct mount (Nikon instead of Canon or any other mount).
