The lens is what makes your image. Sigma's new contemporary (C) 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 lens is compact, without compromising on image quality.

It is generally accepted that hyper-zoom lenses trade convenience and portability for image quality. Sigma want to address this problem with their new 18-300mm lens. It offers the convenience and versatility of an all-in-one lens, suitable for Travel, Landscape, Family, Nature & Wildlife, Sports & Action photography - but it has quite a few features that make it stand out from the crowd:

Firstly, it is Made in Japan.

Secondly, it features 5 premium lens elements (of a total of 17): 4 FLD (Low Dispersion) and 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements. FLD glass is the highest level of low dispersion glass available with extremely high light transmission and a performance equal to fluorite glass. This minimises chromatic aberration, especially toward the telephoto-end, and provides clear image quality with high colour fidelity.

Thirdly, it can be updated through the USB dock. We've all got used to being able to hook up our camera bodies for firmware updates - but lenses? Sigma wants to make them future proof too, which is a very good idea.

Fourth, there is the option (at extra cost) to buy a close-up lens that has been developed especially for this lens. This additional close-up lens, AML 72-01, has a working distance of 14 cm and improves the Macro ratio from 1:3 to half lifesize (1:2).

Note also that the hyper sonic motor (HSM) and optical stabiliser (OS) have been improved for this lens.

We think this is an exciting new lens by Sigma - one that addresses many problems users face today. It is also very portable - 585 g is a small load to carry, considering the vast 16.6 x zoom range it offers.

Highly recommended *****
Manufacturer’s Description
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.
