  • Conclusion: The 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM is on the face of it an ideal 'do-it-all' travel lens; the 11x zoom range, image stabilization and useful close focus distance combine to give great operational flexibility.
  • Pros: Huge 11x focal length range, ideal general purpose and travel lens, Relatively low chromatic aberration, Low distortion (for a superzoom), Reasonably effective optical stabilization system, 2.5 - 3 stops benefit
  • Cons: Very inconsistent sharpness through the zoom range - extremely soft at 80mm, Soft corners at all focal lengths, Occasionally indecisive autofocus, Slightly less resistant to flare than its more recent competitors

Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM C Lens

The Digital Picture

  • Excerpt: I was not completely excited about the sharpness of this and the dozen or so other images I captured in the couple of minutes the light remained on the hill. A tiny, light lens results in an inertia disadvantage that makes it harder to hold steady, and I guessed that this issue was the likely cause...

Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 DC lens review

Camera Labs
1 July 2006
  • Summary: Unsurprisingly a lens with this kind of focal range is rarely going to perform as well as one with a shorter range, but we were impressed overall by the results possible. Certainly unless you're into extreme wide or telephoto work, or demand the ultimate quality, you could really be very happy with...
  • Pros: Highly versatile 11.1x zoom range, Great value, Relatively small and light - great travel lens, Polariser-friendly internal focusing
  • Cons: Tamron version very similar, Pricier Nikkor version has anti-shake, Pricier Nikkor version is optically faster, Pricier Nikkor version has better build quality

C 18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM

27 June 2014
  • Excerpt: The 18–200 mm Sigma lenses follow an old tradition. It all started with a simple 18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 DC model, without any stabilization or ultrasonic motor. In 2007 the new Sigma 18–200 mm f/3.5–6.3 DC OS was launched.

18-200 mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS

8 January 2010
  • Conclusion: After the announcement of the Sigma’s 18-200 mm OS suggested price my first impressions were rather negative – I didn’t think it could sell itself well. It turned out the Sigma company knew what they were doing – they simply appreciate the products they consider good.
  • Cons: weak image quality at the frame edge for the range of 100-200 mm and near the maximum relative aperture,, distinct distortion level at 18 mm,, high vignetting for both extremes of the focal range,, high astigmatism for the range of 100-200 mm,, not very efficient image stabilization.

  • Summary: Nowa Sigma wygląda dobrze nie tylko na tle poprzednika, ale także na tle konkurentów. Bardzo równe osiągi, zadbanie o maksymalną ogniskową, najlepiej skorygowana w tej kasie sprzętu dystorsja, brak wpadek na brzegu kadru – wszystko to naprawdę imponuje.
  • Pros: kompaktowe rozmiary jak na tak duży zakres ogniskowych,, wysoka jakość obrazu w centrum kadru i to dla wszystkich ogniskowych,, przyzwoita jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru,, bardzo dobrze korygowana podłużna aberracja chromatyczna,, rozsądnie korygowana poprzeczna aberracja chromatyczna,, prawidłowo...
  • Cons: trochę za dużo odblasków dla okolic ogniskowej 100 mm,, zauważalne winietowanie na krańcach ogniskowych,, jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru dla maksymalnego otworu ogniskowych 18 i 100 mm trochę poniżej poziomu przyzwoitości.

Sigma 18-200mm f/3,5-6,3 DC MACRO OS HSM (C)

15 May 2014
  • Summary: A Sigma megújult termékpalettáján egy APS-C szenzoros fényképezőgépekhez fejlesztett utazózoom is megtalálható a Contemporary, azaz kortárs szériában, mely a korábbi változatokhoz képest kisebb méretet, kisebb tömeget és jobb makróképességet kínál, igaz, a 18-250mm-es modellhez képest egy picit...
