REVIEW: Sigma 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 DC
10 October 2008
Conclusion: As a walk-around lens, this design from the Sigma stable scores well over the normal offering of ‘kit’ lenses, giving extended focal length at the long end and improved performance at the wide end. The reduced need for lens changes on the digital SLR’s that it is made for ensures less chance of the dreaded dust getting at the sensor whilst, at the same time, the light weight and compact size will reduce neck ache after long days carrying it around.
Pros: Compact size and weight, Good build quality, Out-performs most ‘kit’ lenses especially at the wide end., Good range of mounts available.
Excerpt: WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW: Like Sigma's other DC (for Digital Camera) lenses, the 18-125mm f/3.5-5.6 is mountable only on DSLRs with APS-scaled image sensors. (You'll get severe edge vignetting on a 35mm camera.) This $269 optic will be available in the Olympus E-series mount, the most affordable lens for Olympus E-1 and Evolt owners.
