Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM review

 

Small but feature-packed, this Sigma zoom lens aims to go large on value for money

Small but not too lightweight ; HSM autofocus and optical stabiliser ; Includes a focus distance scale, often omitted on budget lenses

Lack of outright sharpness at 200mm focal length ; Stabilisation only consistently gave a 3-stop advantage in our tests ; Not compatible with full-frame cameras

Designed specifically for APS-C cameras with smaller than full-frame sensors, as denoted by its 'DC' suffix, the Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM zoom lens is available in Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sigma and Sony mount options. Once you take the crop...

Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM

 

A sub-£200 optic with Optical Stabilisation and a Hyper-Sonic Motor - too good to be true or an absolute steal?

Competitive pricing

Rotating focusing ring

Overall this is clearly an impressive lens - especially given its remarkably low price. Admittedly it doesn't have the feel of a top-flight professional zoom but neither does it feel flimsy or exhibit any serious weaknesses when used within its own...

Consumer review by: Paintbug (newegg.com)

Don't be fooled by the price. It is awesome!!!

 

I love this lens! Granted I am not a pro, but for the money you cannot go wrong. Picture quality is great. The OS system helps with shake. The only problem I notice is the AF is sometimes a little off, but I usually manually focus anyway. I use this on...

Amazing Optics

 

This is one of those hidden Gems in the Photography world. Like the Nifty Fifty and Canon 18-50mm IS, the Sigma 50-200 OS is a great surprise in a budget market lens. Good build, Metal mount, much better than the plastic mounts by Canon fort entry...

Great lens for the money

 

fast focusing, image stabilization is fantastic (first time I have had a lens with that feature

Slow at full zoom, but you know that when you buy the lens. The IS helps immensely with that
