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

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...

This compact telephoto zoom for DSLRs with smaller image sensors costs £200 and includes optical stabilisation and a Hyper-Sonic focusing motor.

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

Exceeds my expectations

 

So far, I used this lens in bright sunny day only with plenty of light, hand held. It produces excellent sharp pictures with great colors even fully extended at 500 mm if subject is at medium distance, I would say, 50 yards; remote subjects come little...

Nice piece of glass - 10X magnification

 

SIGMA produces some of the best 'after market' glass. While I would love to own a similar lens frpm Canon, I cannot substantiate the five digit $$,$$$ expense. An awesome lense and value. Long shots will benefit with the use of a mono/tri pod. You'll...

Does everything I want it to do .

 

I'm very happy with the performance of this lens. It does a great job at a distance an up close with the auto focus. I'm brand new with this kind of lens it is a little heavy but focus is quick which helps a lot. Love results of camera and lens .
