Neoscore 55%

Product Overview

Sigma 18-200mm 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 16 elements in 13 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM is externally-zooming. Fortunately, Sigma has provided a zoom lock that at least stops zoom creep.
An all-in-one zoom lens, the 18-200mm 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.
