Overview

The Sigma 18-300mm 3.5-6.3 DC HSM OS Macro is another impressive addition to the Sigma Global Vision Contemporary line. With a 16.6x zoom ratio covering focal lengths from wide to telephoto, this lens also offers a 1:3 macro ratio. The Sigma 18-300mm Contemporary was designed for APS-C cameras where it equates to a 27-450mm lens and incorporates state-of-the-art Sigma technology. An enhanced optical stabilizer (OS) compensates for camera shake, while an optimized hyper sonic motor (HSM) ensures quiet and fast autofocus. Four FLD (performance equal to fluorite) paired with 1 SLD glass elements capture incredible sharp and contrasted images, all the way through the focal length. Utilizing top quality glass, the Sigma 18-300mm Contemporary controls aberration, even at the telephoto end to produce high quality images. Working with the USB dock, this lens allows for firmware updates when available and adjustment of focus parameters. 

Close up lens AML72-01 is available as an optional accessory. It offers a maximum magnification ratio 1:2 and changeable angles of view enables zoom-macro photography. Just by rotating the zoom ring, it enables photographers to take a close up pictures of subjects such as jewelry and flowers.

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.  

SIGMA MOUNT CONVERSION SERVICE

Sigma will convert the current mount of your Sigma Global Vision lens to another of your choice. Sigma lenses currently from the Contemporary, Art or Sports line, in Sigma, Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax mounts can be converted to Sigma, Canon, Nikon, Sony or Pentax*.

Review by Jon Boeckenstedt
Posted on 6/2/2017
Beware of Zoom Creep
This lens has a nice range, and is sharp and fast when you're shooting level.

But it has horrible zoom creep. Point the lens down and it will go from 100 to 300 in about 1.5 seconds; point it up and it will do the reverse. This is especially pronounced when you have the close up attachment on it.

I'm very disappointed in the Sigma response to this: Essentially, they say, "Hey, that's normal for a zoom." I have two other Sigma lenses (150-600 with the 1.4x multiplier and the 10-20), but I'm afraid this is the last one I'll buy.

Fantastic Lenses For Me
I bought three of these 18-300mm lenses for Sony, Canon, and Nikon cameras and the best part of all three was that I did not have to make a microfocus adjustment for any of them. I love the images over the entire zoom range and have been getting consistently great photographs from macro to portrait to landscapes both in daylight, studio, and night time shooting. YES! I would recommend Sigma lenses to my friends and anyone else and have been for over 30 years.

Solid & Adaptable All-in-One Lens
The Sigma 18-300 DC OS HSM lens is a high quality & solid performer, combining an affordable price with an adaptable range of focal lengths. As a former owner of the Tamron 16-300 mm I am substantially more happy with the Sigma 18-300 after testing its breadth, autofocus IQ, image quality, sturdiness of the lens, and its overall performance that is noteworthy above & beyond its Tamron competitor. Likewise, it has performed on par with my other lenses, such as the Canon 18-135 & Sigma 70-200, allowing me to carry only a few special lenses while leaving the Sigma 18-300 attached to my Canon 70D rather than a full arsenal of heavy lenses limited to certain focal lengths. A solid buy for any Crop Sensor formats desiring a range of focal lengths with only one lens without sacrificing image quality

Good all around lens
I have the Nikkor kit lenses 18-55mm and 55-200mm in which sometime I get in trouble on which single lens should I carry on a particular occasions and often missed a shot because I am gear with a wrong lens. 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM | C gives me a big relief with a plus because now I have a single lens that cover not only from 55mm to 200mm but up to 300mm with image stabilization. Great!!!
