Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM

 

The 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM is the latest in a long line of all-in-one 'superzoom' lenses from Sigma, having been announced in June 2012. It offers two main developments over its predecessor, the confusingly similarly-named 18-250mm...

13.9x focal length range with impressive closeup capability, ideal general purpose / travel lens ; Fast, quiet autofocus ; Effective image stabilization (about 3 stops benefit at all focal lengths) ; Good build quality, smooth zoom ring action and...

Somewhat soft wide open in the middle of the zoom range ; Very strong pincushion distortion across much of the zoom range

The Sigma 18-250mm F3.6-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM is one of the best of the current bunch of SLR superzooms, with decent optics, fast autofocus and effective image stabilization. It's a reliable performer, and its close-up capability is handy too.

Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM Lens Review

 

The Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM was first announced in January 2009, becoming available to buy in March the same year. It's essentially an update to the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM, with an extended 13.9x zoom range bringing it closer in reach...

Huge 13.9x focal length range, ideal general purpose and travel lens ; Good image quality in the wide to short telephoto range ; Fast, quiet autofocus ; Low distortion (for a superzoom) ; Good build quality, smooth zooming action and no zoom creep

Very inconsistent sharpness through the zoom range - extremely soft at 135mm ; Soft corners at almost all focal lengths ; Image stabilization not as effective as on similar lenses, especially at telephoto end

The Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM, perhaps unsurprisingly, seems very much to be a case of 'take the 18-200mm OS, make it longer', and exhibits much the same characteristics as the older design. It's therefore a lens which takes a slightly...

Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Review

 

Gary Wolstenholme reviews the new Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Lens, the new superzoom macro lens from Sigma. Review based on a pre-production sample.

Very good performance for a superzoom; Effective optical Stabilisation; Compact size; Light weight; Good build quality

No full time manual focus override (which isn't really much of an issue)

Nice all rounder

 

I'm using the lens with my Canon 70D. Its a good all rounder lens. It is sturdy, good for travel. From the price point, I'm satisfied with macro shots, tele-photo and in-door shots with external flash.

Love it!

 

I love this lens. It zooms beautifully in automatic and in manual is very easy to focus! My only complaint is that it is a little heavier than I expected. I also love the lock feature so the lens doesn't extend by accident.
