Sigmaâ-'s 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS Lens; The First Multipurpose Sigma Zoom With A Built-In Image Stabilizer

 

Particularly when shooting indoors, or from the deck of a ship or ferry, I really appreciated Sigma's effective Optical Stabilizer technology.

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS review

 

I have to admit, I'm not normally a fan of high zoom ratio lenses due to the compromises involved. Saying that, this lens is a decent performer for this kind of lens and should please many users looking for convenience for travel or casual photography.

High zoom range, Decent sharpness at shorter focal lengths, Highly effective optical stabiliser, Price

Falloff in sharpness at 200mm, CA towards edges can be noticeable along high contrast edges, Slow AF at telephoto end.

Sigma DC 18-200mm 1:3.5-6.3 Lens

 

Sigma's new 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC zoom lens is marginally heavier than the similarly-featured Tamron lens we reviewed in issue 25 but also somewhat smaller in size and considerably cheaper. Designed specifically for current DSLR cameras with 'APS-C'...

Sigma 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 DC OS Lens

 

I purchased this lens in replacement for my Canon 18\/200mm because it was faulty and would have cost an arm and a leg to get it repaired. Since purchasing this lens I found it to be comparible to the Canon at a fraction of the price. I use this lens...

My go-to lens

 

When you need a lens that covers pretty much all eventualities, you can\'t go wrong with this one. It gathers the light in so that low-level ambient light is no problem. Mine is a bit old now with a great deal of use and I\'ve noticed a little lens...

My expectations were too high

 

Maybe I expected too much for this price but I am disappointed. The sharpness of the image is not as good as the kit lense supplied with my Canon EOS450D. Macro seems fine but I had hoped that I would achieve quality pictures, but I am alarmed that my...

Best Purchase Ever

 

This is an excellent lens for everyday day use. The zoom is fantastic for many shots where you want to frame and compose your photography. The lens is surprisingly good when it comes to macro photography and the more you zoom the softer the background...
