Sigma 18-125mm f/3.8-5.6 DC OS HSM

  • Excerpt: Sigma specialises in lenses that have a wide range of focal lengths and despite being a 7x zoom this is actually on the modest side by the manufacturer’s standards.

Sigma AF 18-125mm f/3.8-5.6 DC HSM OS - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
22 July 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 18-125mm f/3.8-5.6 DC HSM OS is an interesting lens with a couple of high and lows, which is quite typical for such extreme zoom range lenses. The resolution characteristic is generally decent - only the soft borders at longer focal lengths may be really objectionable. The vignetting could be better at 18mm and 125mm at max. aperture but frankly that's also nothing out of the ordinary in this class.

  • Conclusion: At the beginning, some casual digressions. I am thinking about sense of introducing on the market a lens of this class and parameters. Sigma already has a good model of 17-70 mm parameters, which on account of good brightness, good optics and usable macro is often chosen by prosumers. For a change, beginning photographers’ mind will be more stimulated by mega-zooms, which are also found in Sigma’s offer (e.g. optically good 18-200 mm OS or the brand-new 18-250 mm OS).
  • Cons: worse image quality at the edge of the frame at the maximum focal length,, large distortion at the wide angle.

  • Summary: A high-quality standard zoom lens with an extended zoom range for DSLR cameras with APS-C sized sensors.Designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras with APS-C sized sensors, Sigma's new DC 18-125mm 1:3.8-5.6 HSM lens offers a slightly longer zoom range than most kit lenses and promises better optical quality. Constructed from 16 elements in 12 groups, it comes with Sigma's Optical Stabiliser function and multi-layer coatings to minimise flare and ghosting. . .

Stabilizowane superzoomy - część 1, Sigma 18-125 mm F3.8-5.6 DC OS HSM

9 September 2009
  • Summary: Sumaryczna ocena 4,0 to jak na superzooma zupełnie przyzwoicie. Przecież musi on jednocześnie być przygotowany do pełnienia roli optyki szerokokątnej, standardowej i długoogniskowej, a przy tym powinien być nieduży i w miarę tani. Sigma dobrze wybrnęła z tego skomplikowanego problemu, a powyższa ocena w żaden sposób nie upoważnia do określenia tego zooma jako "optyki do niczego". W końcu w żadnej z konkurencji testu nie zanotował ewidentnej wpadki.
