If you have a Canon camera with a smaller-size APS-C sensor and EF mount, then the 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM from Sigma is an incredibly versatile lens that is a real jack-of-all-trades lens you can carry in any situation. With a focal length spanning from a wide-angle 18mm up to a 250 mm telephoto zoom, with macro capabilities to boot, Sigma's 18-250mm could easily be your camera's first all-in-one lens, or a great replacement for several smaller lenses that you're looking to consolidate.

Sigma redesigned the optical and structural design of this lens in order to achieve a relatively compact size, at 4.0" long, as well as a close minimum focusing distance of 13.8" for macro photography. Their Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) construction maintains the structure of the lens, with little variation despite changing temperatures. The lens also incorporates a brass-made bayonet mount, to further reinforce the lenses durability and resistance to wear and tear over time.

The minimum focusing distance is the same throughout the focal length of the entire zoom range, and provides a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. As an added benefit over fixed focal length macro lenses, the size and framing of subjects can quickly and easily be adjusted by rotating the zoom ring. For even further convenience, at each focusing distance on the side of the lens barrel, the maximum magnification ratio is also displayed.

The 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM has been built with Sigma's exclusive Optical Stabilizer (OS) function. This provides approximately 4-stops of effective camera correction, allowing for lower-light shooting, or greater sharpness in adequate lighting situations. This benefit is even carried into the macro range of photography, where the slightest bump or blur could easily ruin an image. This stabilizer is also adaptive to moving subjects, detecting your movement as you pan the camera and lens, offering effective correction there as well.

For high image quality, you know you've got to have high quality glass, and Sigma has incorporated their Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass element into the 18-250mm. In addition to the SLD element, three aspherical lenses, including a double-sided aspherical lens, have been used in the lens' construction--offering excellent correction of color aberration, for better clarity and quality of images throughout the zoom range.

A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been employed to reduce flare and ghosting with this lens. This makes it resistant to strong incident light, such as backlight behind a subject, providing sharper, high contrast images even shooting into a light source. To prevent internal reflections from occurring, the included petal-type lens hood can be attached in order to block out extraneous light.

For a lens that offers a wide-angle to telephoto focal length, the ability to zoom-in with macro photography, and provides Optical Stabilization built-in, Sigma's 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM made for Canon cameras is more than a match. Whether you're on a macro product shoot, a walk in the park, or have a wedding to go to, this lens will help you shoot high quality images in any situation.

Possibilities as Wide as its Zoom Range
Going from an 18mm wide-angle lens in the park, to an 85mm portrait lens at a wedding, and later attaching a heavy 250mm lens for wildlife or sport photography means you'll have to carry pounds of gear around with you, by hand or on your back, all day long. With the 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM, you won't have to risk dust entering your Canon camera body, dropping one of your lenses as the bride's aunt runs into you with a glass of wine, or fumbling to switch to your zoom lens as you watch an eagle soar away--missing opportunities because you had the wrong lens at the time
In Close, or Wide Open
Not only is the zoom range excellent for a variety of situations, but the focus range is also conducive to macro photography--with the added benefit of zooming in on the tiniest textures or creatures. With a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9 you can get an up-close and personal shot of the petals of a flower, then immediately zoom out and catch a group photo before anyone blinks
Compact Construction
Incorporating double-sided aspherical lenses, and redesigning the lenses construction, Sigma has made improvements in keeping this lens at a relatively compact size, yet still achieving an outstanding zoom range. The filter thread diameter has been reduced to 62mm--while, with a 13x zoom range, the length of the lens still remains a mere 3.4" long
Tough Exterior, yet Quality Interior
While the design and construction of the lens has kept it relatively compact, the new Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material has been used to keep it strong and resistant to weathering effects. In addition, a brass made bayonet mount reinforces the strength applied to the surface of the lens. The combination of these features leads to reduced contractility with changing temperatures, a higher quality of lens construction, and allows for slimmer parts to be used--keeping it compact and strong
Holding Steady
Sigma has incorporated their unique Optical Stabilizer (OS) function that offers effectively 4-stops of correction. This makes it possible to compensate for camera shake even in the close-up macro range of photography where a small blur can be detrimental to an image. Even when photographing moving subjects, such as those in sports, the OS function automatically detects the camera's movement and offers effective correction for potential camera shake. The stabilizer's effectiveness does gradually decrease as the shooting distance becomes shorter, however, and is not available on Sony or Pentax camera mounts
Flares, Aberrations, and Ghosting. Oh my!
Everybody says you should invest in your glass, and Sigma's 18-250mm provides just the way for you to do that. With three Aspherical glass elements that offer correction for distortion. Four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements that provide optimum color correction and sharpness, as well as a Super Multi-Layer lens coating that reduces flare and ghosting. This array of optical features assure high image quality throughout the entire zoom range, and widely varying lighting situations

    Absolute the best superzoom out there today, period. Unlike other superzooms, this lens is sharp throughout the entire range(sharpness drops a bit at the most telephoto end). I had the Sigma 17-50mm OS. Was planning to get a telephoto and a macro lens. Decided to sell the 17-50mm once I heard Sigma was coming out with a new 18-250mm Macro OS. It's not a true macro lens, but for closeups it destroys all other superzooms. I haven't experience any lens creep. The Tamron 18-270mm PZD VC had some major lens creep. I did not like the Canon 18-200mm. It was bulky and heavy. The Sigma 18-250mm Macro OS is small and lightweight. Only con I really have is that the focus hunts on occasion. Check me out on Flickr.

    I bought this lens to be used mostly as a travel all-in-one to go with my T3i, and have been using a Tiffen UV filter on it from day 1. After comparing directly to the Canon 17-55 F2.8, I immediately noticed that when I took a picture from the same position with the 17-55@55, the subject filled ~1/3 of the frame compared to the full frame on this Sigma@250, which didn't add up. A few weeks later I had the chance to compare directly to the Canon EF 75-300, which confirmed my suspicions and the claim by Microdevthat this isn't really a 18-250 lens. I took a few pictures of a framed photo on the opposite wall using both lenses and have found that this 18-250's tele end is equivalent to the Canon 75-300 at ~165. This is ridiculous! It's as if I bought a 55" TV and in the box was a 32"! This alone made me seriously regret buying this lens, and if it didn't mean incurring over $100 in losses (shipping both ways + border/customs/handling fees), I'd return it.

    Aside from that, some other issues with the lens is the very noticable vignetting at the wide end compared to the kit 18-55 (both wearing UV filters, but not hoods), and the spotty autofocus: I've had intermittent issues where it just couldn't get focus and kept going back and forth in a loop. Focusing in live-view is a lot worse than the kit lens as well. Also, the lens makes a quiet but definitely audible and worrying noise constantly while the camera is on (sounds a bit like a 2.5" hard drive spinning and seeking). I haven't been able to identify the source of the noise since it persists regardless of whether the autofocus or OS is on or off.

    Not to sound all negative, the sharpness seems to be ok, and there aren't any plainly visible abberations. I really like the "macro" usability even if it isn't a real macro lens, and the bokeh is as good as I've encountered in my so far brief forray in photography. The build quality looks and feels solid, and I appreciate the free hood.

    All in all, I'm perfectly happy with the pictures it takes, but at the end of the day, the only reason I bought this lens was for its wide zoom range- and I was scammed in this regard. I've attached the pictures to back-up my claims against this lens. Hopefully, this review will warn others...

      In the short time I've had the lens, I have used it for a variety of applications such as; macros, floral, a parade event, the moon and my Grandson. It is a great walk around lens because of its versatility. I don't have too much to complain about at all, the only thing I can think of is the location of the focus ring in relationship to the tulip lens hood when its on backwards, its akward.

          This little wonder was a great addition to my kit. I often travel without my big L series 100-400 mm zoom as I get best results with a tripod. This Sigma fills a spot when my 24-105 is a bit short (or lower light levels prevent its use). Decent image quality at full zoom length, impressive auto focusing and overall usefulness make this a very good lens for the price.

              Bought this for my wife who needed one lens to do portraits, action, zoom and wide angles (she is a school teacher so she likes to photograph everything for school & home but hates changing and carrying lenses). I've played with it a bit too. We find the lens versatile, compact and it seems to do well at both wide angle and full zoom. Wide aperture allows for good stills in lower light. Not a professional lens but then I didn't pay for one either (I'm not even close to a professional photographer but have played with professional equipment so I have some base). Pictures are clear and crisp. If you need an all around, do everything lens for us non professionals this may be your pick. With that said we leave on vacation next week so we shall see how rugged it is...

              I find this to be an optically excellent lens.It (or the camera, or both?) is a bit slow in Auto Focus. Focus: it's difficult to see the reference points (camera, lens, both?). I'm new to SLR's and probably shouldn't have chosen a zoom lens because of severe Image Steadiness problems (mine, not the lens), but this lens is simply TOO BLOODY HEAVY. I'm going to purchase a 40mm to see what that'll do. If necessary, I'll try a shoulder stock. After that, I consider putting the whole apparatus on the market. Sure hope I find the correct solution first. I bought the system for pleasure, not frustration.

                  I have many L lenses, 2.8 prime lenses from WA to tele. Sometimes
                  you need to simplify and travel light and handy. There are many of these zooms out on the market but this is the best of the bunch with a great price.
                  Unless you are printing above 12x16..the results are very good.

                  Comments about Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM for Canon EF Mount:

                  I use this lens on my Canon 70D, and I love it. I work for a company and run their photo shoots, and this lens helps me on the job because of its great versatility. It does a great job at taking macro photos, and is great for nature and landscape photography. It truly is a very multipurpose lens that works great for all types of photography. The only problems I have with it is sometimes slow loopy and rather grainy sounding autofocus, vignetting at the edges, and pretty bad lens creep. All in all this is a great lens and I would recommend it to anyone other than a commercial professional.

                    I'm very much an amateur but the lens quality seems fully satisfactory for my needs. With a lens only slightly larger than the original 18-55 mm I now get 18-250 (or thereabouts); tremendous convenience for travelling. One review complained that it wasn't a 250 mm; it compares closely with an old 200 mm I checked, which is still a good range in my mind.The $ price seemed great but a couple days after I ordered B&H lowered the price another $. When I inquired, they credited me the difference with no questions. My dealings with B&H have been very favorable.

                    I bought this as a replacement all-around lens for my Canon 18-135 and a replacement long lens for my Canon 75-300. So far, it's serving well in both roles. I've used it for some wildlife photography and indoor holiday shots. Excellent at both ends of the spectrum.

                        Excellent price! I bought this just for my Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and it works great! Some lenses don't work well, like the Canon 70-200 F4 L- the iris controls don't work for some reason. This Sigma's iris works well, but the IS does not. Oh well. Image seems good enough, sharp. Ergonomics and build quality are above average. I wish the focus ring turned further for easier manual use. Zooming shifts the focus quite a bit too, AND the iris- zoom in and it'll stop you down. But for the price, great quality overall. The macro is nice.

                            I got this lens for one year now. The zoom range it's amazing. Although its slow focus (that's why the 4 stars), the optical stabilizer it's great. The macro is ridiculous, I can even take photos of fingerprints. Don't know why people complaint about lens creep, since not even once this caused me any problem. I use it for both photo (70D) and video (Blackmagic Cinema Camera) at least 3 times/week, and I can't tell any difference since I bought it, it seems like new.
