An all-in-one zoom for APS-C cameras, the Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary Lens provides users of Canon EF-S/Nikon F mount cameras with a versatile zoom ratio of 16.67X. This lens is perfect for travelling photographers who are limited by weight and need to carry one versatile lens. The Sigma 18-300mm is perfect for wide-angle landscapes and close-up wildlife encounters, and everything in between. This version also offers optical image stabilization for reducing the effects of camera shake at longer focal lengths and slower shutter speeds. The lens also has a maximum aperture range of f/3.5-6.3 and benefits from the inclusion of one SLD and four FLD elements. Additionally, a Super Multi-Layer coating on the elements results in less flare and improved contrast.
Utilizing a Hyper Sonic Motor for autofocus ensures quick, quiet, and accurate focusing, all the way to the lens’ minimum focus distance of just 15″. A lens hood is included with the lens and it is compatible with Sigma’s USB Dock for installing firmware updates and adjusting focus.
