Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
This high ratio zoom lens incorporates Sigma's original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function and exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras. It is perfectly suitable for low light conditions, indoors, at dusk and telephoto range.

This high ratio zoom lens  incorporates Sigma's original OS (Optical Stabilizer) function and exclusively designed for digital SLR cameras.  It is perfectly suitable for low light conditions, indoors, at dusk and telephoto range.  SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass and aspherical glass provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations.  This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 45cm (17.7inch) throughout the entire zoom range and has a maximum magnification of 1:3.9.  The inner focusing system is suitable for using a petal-type lens hood supplied and also circular polarizing filters.

Features:

  • Exclusively designed for use with digital SLR cameras featuring APS-C size image sensor.
  • High zoom ratio 11:1.
  • Compact, Lightweight and Durable construction with diameter of 70mm (2.8"), length of 78.1mm (3.1") and weight of 405g./14.3oz.
  • Lens has Metal Mount.
  • Minimum focusing distance of 45cm (17.7") at all focal lengths.

Sigma's own unique technology OS (Optical Stabilizer) function
The 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 OS is equipped with Sigma's own unique OS (Optical Stabilizer) technology.  This system uses two sensors inside the lens to detect vertical and horizontal movement of the camera by moving an optical image stabilizing lens group, to effectively compensate for camera shake.  It also automatically detects panning movement of the camera and compensate for camera shake when shooting moving subjects such as motor sports.

Excellent Optical Performance
A Special Low Dispersion (SLD) lens and three aspherical glass elements provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations and produce a high level of optical performance throughout the entire zoom range.  The super multi-layer lens coating reduces flare and ghosting while producing the best color balance.

Enables close-up photography
This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 45cm through entire zoom range with a maximum magnification of 1:3.9 making it very convenient for taking close-up pictures.

Inner focusing system
Because the front of the lens does not rotate, circular polarizing filters and a petal-type hood can easily be used.

Magnification scale
A magnification scale is displayed on the lens barrel, ensuring ease of use.

Zoom lock switch mechanism
A zoom lock switch mechanism is provided to prevent the lens from creeping due to its own weight.

4 out of 5 stars   Nice Lens
By Megar Piks Elll (east coast) June 03, 2010
Review submitted for Sigma Wide Angle Zoom 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 DC OS (Optical Stabilizer) Lens for EOS DSLRs (SG18200SEOS)
Pros: Strong Construction, Easily Interchangeable, Consistent Output
Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus, Difficult to Clean, Poor in Low Light
Other Comments: This lens although it gets a bit heavy on long walks is a great lens because although it is on the heavy side it provides a great maximum zoom and a 1.4 teleonverter is a perfect accompionmentfor it. I used it In dc and was able top take wonderful close ups (not macro level)of artifacts and exhibits bcause of it starting at an 18mmand goin up to a 200mm (not includong teleconverter). Overall I love this lens but I feel its missing something that definetley should be there im not sure what it is but it may just be weight or shooting somewhat foggy in low light. Which brings me to my next point on this lens which is a con. The one large con on this lens is the fact that it shoot somewhat foggy in lowlight because on my canon rebel xt if the ISO isnt set up to 1600 or auto you usually have a relativley long shutter close up which alllows the target or focal point to move thus giving poor quality on the finished shot with whispy outline if its somewhat clear. However since I use thuis maily for high light conditions and the outdooors I think it is a great lens for anyone that like to get bsharrp and good photos of wildlife while maintaining a distance and of course without going over the top and bombing your wallet. Great lens for the money and an especially great lens for the casual lens and beginner because of its wide range of uses yet still has those great qualities that make it sophisticated enough and work well enough on a daily basis for any pro or semi-pro to use as a primary lens.
