This standard zoom for DSLRs with APS-C or smaller sensors cost £250 and includes optical stabilisation technology and a HyperSonic focusing motor.

REVIEW: Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM

 

ePHOTOzine's expert Gary Wolstenholme takes a long look at one of Sigma's zoom lenses.

Internal focus and zoom; Optical Stabilisation; Good resolution at wider apertures; Low distortion

Fingers tend to catch on rotating focus ring; Resolution falloff at smaller apertures

Overall, this lens isn't a bad performer and will suit those looking either for a replacement upgrade to their standard 18-55mm kit lens, or a solid starter lens that covers the standard focal ranges.

Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM review by Alexsoox

 

This is a great lens for two hundred bucks. The construction is very nice. Very sharp at over f6. Compare to the Nikon 35mm/1.8 at ~25-40mm f6-11 is very hard if not impossible to tell the differents at the computer. I was a little worry ordering this...

Cheap,Sharp

Not full range f/2.8

Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM review by zoro02

 

I just got the lens and took some picture with hot shoe flash at night, this is what I think about the new Sigma 18-50 F2.8-4.5 OS HSM

Affordable, sharp at F4 - 8, OS worked, closeup/macro is a bonus @ 20cm, non rotating zoom

Soft @2.8, nothing else ATM until I run a field test

Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM review by ksbuehler

 

I concentrated my tests on performance at F2.8 and 18mm, as that is what I care about. I have a 45mm TSE 2.8 and 70-200mm F4L IS to cover other focal lengths.

light, inexpensive, 18mm @ f2.8 with stabilization, HSM

a bit of Chromatic aberration, focal field curvature

Consumer review by:

Sigma 18-50 mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM

 

Excellent value for the price paid.

Well built, OS and very nice handling. Lens hood included. Fast and precise AF. Optically sound above 24mm. Good contrast and colour. Faster than kit lenses

Soft in the corners at 18 mm

Consumer review by:

Sigma 18-50 mm f/2.8-4.5 DC OS HSM

 

best value if you look for a studio lens between 24 and 35 for aps-c (except productfotos)

but my standard studio lens between 24 and 35mm at f8 too f11, best handling, no extension, stabilisized and fast and excact AF

a lot of optical disadvantages, if you use this lens outdoor at 18 or 50mm wide open, ok from 24 too 35mm

Stabilizer, F 2.8

Corner sharpness, variable aperture

Great buy

Hard to beat for the money, I use on both my 20D and T2i, am very satisfied

A bit soft at 18mm@2.8, but can sharpen up in Photoshop
