BEST ENTRY LEVEL DSLR LENS
SIGMA 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM
The amazingly compact (2.8 x 3.4 inches) and affordable 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM (27-300mm equivalent) lens is exclusively for APS-C sized sensors. It is smaller and lighter than the previous version and offers a closer focusing distance to boot. It also has a newly incorporated SLD glass element plus 3 aspheric elements among its 16 elements, 13 groups construction. The lens incorporates an optical stabilizer (OS) system for those cameras that do not have OS built-in, with automatic panning detection to shift the OS to one axis. It has a close focusing range of about 1.5 feet throughout the focal length range, making it extremely versatile for close-up photography.
