Comments about Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Lens For Canon Digital Cameras:

I've been using a tamron 18-270 for a while and had some problems with slow focus and blurry images. Traded for this and I'm pleased so far. It produces sharper images and the reach is great. Focus is a little slow compared to my canon ultrassonic, but is faster then the tamron. Liked the new design very much. I just think the OS is worse then tamrons. But I'm happy with my trade so far.

Comments about Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Lens For Canon Digital Cameras:

Wanted a decent, all-rounder-type lens for my Canon 1100D / Rebel T3i with wider range to replace my 18-55mm kit lens & this one certainly hasn't dissapointed (first lens purchase too.)

In decent light, it's pretty sharp and good rendition of colour too, from what I can tell. Really enjoying the decent zoom range I get - very handy when I shot some wildlife recently - and I like the slightly 'wide-angle-ish' look I get at the widest end (18mm) which I don't think I had with the kit lens. Also like the ability to lock the zoom ring.

In low-light, auto-focus can hunt around a bit, hence it can be a bit soft, and in certain low-light situations it might not focus at all, but can just switch to manual. Certainly not a 'Macro' lens either, though gives nice close-ups ;)

All up, very happy with this lens & would recommend for folks who want something fairly decent on a limited budget.
