Product Overview

Sigma 18-300 F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM | Contemporary is an all-in-one zoom lens for Canon EF-mount, Nikon F-mount, Pentax K-mount, Sigma SA-mount, and Sony A-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Sigma in 2014, it has .
Like most zoom lenses, the 18-300 F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM is externally-zooming. Fortunately, Sigma has provided a zoom lock that at least stops zoom creep. Unfortunately, Sigma has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers.
The 3x magnification opens up a lot of opportunity for macro shots. An all-in-one zoom lens, the 18-300 F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM trades some performance for versatility, though the most discerning photographers may find the image quality hardly satisfactory. The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use.
