  • Summary: This is a nice lens . It's very sharp from 18mm-75mm with very low distortion. From 75 it is a bit soft at the corners but still sharp in center . at about 100mm it's soft again getting sharp by 135mm and at 200mm it's quite good for an inexpensive lens.
  • Pros: Built , overall good sharpness , effective OS
  • Cons: Inconsistence in sharpness , prone to veiling flare , heavy

  • Summary: I have never had a Sigma lens before for any of my previous DSLR's but decided to purchase this Sigma 18-200 for it's large zoom (11.1X) and also its large filter size(72mm) Having optical stabilization was another factor in my buying this lens.
  • Pros: Very reasonable cost
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: I had a non OS Sigma 18-200 and it was a nice little walk around lens. Took very nice shots with my Canon XTi. I upgraded to the OS version to get the OS function. It seems to work well – probably provides me with 2-3 stops performance and saves a lot of shots for me in less than bright light.
  • Pros: OS, wide range zoom, low cost, small size, good build
  • Cons: Corner softness

  • Summary: This is my fourth Sigma lens. I also own a 30mm f/1.4 and the 10-20mm, but I sold a 150mm f/2.8 macro. I've had three Nikons as well, but they've all been sold. Although this one is not an EX lens like the others, the quality is nearly as good.
  • Pros: nice finish & build, 72mm thread
  • Cons: auto-focus hunts in low light & makes a buzz sound, f/6.3

  • Summary: I use this lens on my Canon 40D in the same way I use the Nikon 18-200VR on my Nikon D200. It is a great all in one lens when you only want to have one lens on your camera for your outing.
  • Pros: Excellent vacation lens
  • Cons: None I can personally attest to

  • Summary: I originally had the non-OS version and did not intend to buy the OS version assuming that the overall quality would be about the same except for the OS, which I thought I could live without.
  • Pros: Great OS, pretty fast auto-focus, 98% accurate, good sharpness overall.
  • Cons: Softness near edges at wide apertures.

  • Summary: bought this to try to replace my travel lens the EF-S17-85IS , but this is a horrible lens. I kept my Canon Ef-S17-85IS as my travel and day light lens. I have EF-S17-55f2.8IS for my work and serious shooting so this lens has no place in my kit.
  • Pros: build quality (that is good)
  • Cons: horrible color , horribe resolution , pronounced CA, pronounced distortion

  • Summary: Ok this is attempt #6 to write a review of this lens. Maybe shorter=better. First, I have to say that I have gotten a lot of good shots from this lens on a 400d and a 30d, at F8, using DxO. Even at F6.3 shooting 200mm handheld at night, it has surprised me.
  • Pros: zoom range, price, weight, size all good
  • Cons: not an "L" lens :) I'd recommend this lens MAYBE depending on what you want it for
