Good looking, not a performer

  • Summary: I'm not sure if the lens that I got was just defective or representative of the product as a whole. I will say that this lens is in the process of being returned and replaced with another brand. It was nice to think that one lens would answer all of my needs but there is a reason to go with a DSLR and that is the ability to change lenses for varying circumstances.

OS jitters very bad

Peter G, Amazon
12 May 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this as a lower cost alternative to the Sigma 18-250 for use on my Canon Xsi. Construction quality and optics seemed to be fine. The optical stabilization was something else completely. At anywhere past 1/2 zoom to full zoom, the OS caused the image in the viewfinder to jump very noticeably. I was using the lens for a lot of sports photography, so the zoom was very important. The jitters of the image at mid to high zoom were so bad I could not use the lens.

Great lens... for the short time it lasted

  • Summary: Loved this lens when it worked... however now, only one year later, this lens doesn't work! Short circuits new Nikon D90 camera and won't AF on D50. I can't afford to be buying a new $500 lens on a yearly basis - I'm extremely disappointed in Sigma's longevity.

Not very good quality image

LS "LS", Amazon

  • Summary: After my Sigma broke, I got a Tamron version with similar specs but at cheaper price and for better value. In all honesty, the 18-200mm has an issue of introducing noise, and the locking mechanism is very rigid so you are likely to get it jammed. The barrel often requires a small nudge to get it to move. If I had to rate this product in comparison to the better value Tamron version, I would rate 4/10.

Not very happy

  • Summary: the images for tall structures, like historical clock towers or chapels seems to be titled (very slightly) like a fish eye lense

not really what expected

O. Wouters, Amazon

  • Summary: I thought that the other lenses that weren't Canon were of the same quality. Talked to many fotographers and all agreed. But NOT!! I get a much sharper picture with my original canon that with this Sigma lens. So... I am still using my old one and only when I have to zoom in far away I use the sigma. Bummer!

Bildqualität ist teilweise sehr schlecht

Jörg, Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: Normalerweise arbeite ich mit dem Sigma 17-70mm und einem alten Tokina 80-400. Das 18-200 sollte ein "Immerdrauf" sein, vor allem für das Filmen mit meiner Canon 550D. Positiv zu bemerken ist, das sich Zoom und Schärfering schön weich drehen lassen. Der Stabilisator arbeitet einwandfrei, der Autofokus ist mir zu ungenau, ich habe bei meinen Testbildern und Test-Filmclips immer manuell fokussiert.

Ein interessantes Objektiv mit Fehlern

Markus Schillinger, Amazon
13 August 2012
  • Summary: Das Sigma ist bei mir an einer Canon 60D befestigt und fristet(e) sein Dasein nachts in einer Discothek. Das Einsatzgebiet sind 70% Bildaufnahmen, 30% Videoaufnahmen. Fotografiert wird im Prinzip bei ISO 800 / f3,5 mit Blitz. PRO: Pro an der Linse ist das Verhalten bei Videoaufnahmen. Gut, die Kamera dreht auf ISO 3200 hoch, ist aber für den Anwendungsfall ausreichend. Hier spielt das Objektiv den Brennweitenbereich sehr schön aus.

deutlich schlechter als erwartet

Llewellyn709, Ciao

  • Excerpt: [getestet an einer Nikon D7000] Obwohl das Sigma 18-250 OS, das ich früher schon besessen hatte, mich nicht gerade vom Hocker riß (im direkten Vergleich mit dem Tamron 18-270 VC zog es den Kürzeren), entschloß ich mich, dem 18-200 OS eine Chance zu geben, zumal ich kurz zuvor einen positiven Testbericht und 1,2 wohlmeinende Kommentare darüber gelesen hatte.
  • Pros: relativ preiswert, ordentliche Verarbeitung
  • Cons: unterdurchschnittliche Schärfe, mäßiger Autofokus
