Overview

The Sigma 18-200mm 3.5-6.3 DC HSM OS lens is the second addition to the Contemporary line from Sigma’s Global Vision. The Sigma 18-200mm lens was designed for APS-C sensors and features a new matte black finish, thermally stable composite material in its construction and smaller and lighter design then previous models. With exceptional performance, this 18-200mm camera lens does not sacrifice image quality for versatility. Having the ability to shoot from wide angle to telephoto is highly useful particularly for travel photography, landscape photography, street photography, portrait photography and nature photography. An improved minimum focusing distance of 14.7 inches paired with the use of Special Low Dispersion glass, the 18-200mm excels at bringing out great detail in close-up photography as well. A Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures quiet, accurate and fast autofocus and an optical Stabilizer (OS) helps compensate for camera shake. Make this lens your all-in-one lens to handle any shooting scenario.

USB Dock Compatibility

Sigma has developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

*USB Dock is sold separately.

Rock formation at Soldier Pass trail in Sedona, Arizona - This was my first chance to use the Sigma 18-200mm lens while on vacation. I couldn't wait to return home so I could see what the photos looked like. My Canon DSLR coupled with my Sigma lens took clear, sharp, vivid, breathtaking photos. I never imagined such outstanding performance with an "all-purpose" lens in this price range.

I just received the new Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM lens. This is one of the first photos taken and it has NOT been changed (except for a reduction in quality to meet 2MB file size limit). The Sigma lens is much sharper than the Canon 55mm-250mm lens.
