Clear Lens

I have used many canon lenses but this one seems to give me the clearest, sharp image.

Good Value

I've only taken a couple dozen pictures so far, but like what I see. I got the lens for its zoom range but have been also pleasantly surprised by its macro capability. Lens feels like high quality. My only misgiving, if it can be called that, is having to remember to turn off the stabilization when not shooting so as to save camera battery. I wonder if a time out feature could have been programmed into the function.

Surprisingly Good

I use this lens on a Canon SL1 and I am very happy with the lens performance. It is compact, sharp, renders well, and provides a versatile focal length range. The only downside for me is that the lens has a plasticky feel and the zoom ring is a bit tight in the mid-zoom range. Overall, this lens is a winner.

Fits my needs perfectly for snapping pics of butteries along the trail for identification. I've even got some pretty impressive shots even though that is not my first priority.

A great replacement for kit lenses but noisy

By Mike

I previously used the Canon kit lenses 18 - 55 mm and 55 - 250 mm. I didn't want to carry two lenses so I decided to pick up this Sigma as a replacement. While I lost 50 mm at the top side of the range, the Sigma 18 - 200 mm lens makes up for it when I use the Canon 90D with the higher MP count over the SL1. The quality of image difference between the kit lenses and this one is remarkable. The IS on the lens is significant. Between the camera and lens IS you can get clear photos even in low light, The only thing that is a downside is that the auto focus is really noisy when filming video. The camera can pick up all of the servo noise. In manual focus there isn't any issue. Lock off your shot and you should be fine.

Very pleased.

I needed a fairly compact outfit to photograph on road construction projects. I put this on a Nikon D7200 and I am quite well pleased with the result. Most of the time I shoot a Nikon D850 with a 70-200 f2.8 which weighs a ton compared to this combination. While not quite up there with my high-end Nikon lenses, the lens is very responsive and gives me very good quality for the work I am doing. The images are sharp, the focus is crisp. I'm usually stopped down in the middle range and the photographs appear to be very clear edge to edge. It is good value for a lens that give me great range for many difficult situations. I recommend it.

Good travel day lens

The wide angle and 200mm zoom make for a all in one lens for travel in good light, I got this lens for a intern for the newspaper and it does everything they need to shoot quality pictures ie parades, fairs, town festivals etc... it does out preform the canon 24-105 f4 L series lens at well under l less then half the cost again the wide angle to 200mm zoom gives it more versatility. Great lens! Great picture quality! I will be getting one to keep in my vehicle full time because of its versatility... sigma did good with this lens!!

question

With adapter will this work with gh5? Will autofocus work?
Asked by: Philip
You can use this lens on a GH5 with an EF to MFT mount adapter like BH #MEEFM43BT2. However Autofocus can be hit or miss with adapter like this, especially for video. It will not work as well as if you had a native MFT Mount lens. You may want to consider a native lens like the Panasonic Lumix G Vario 12-60mm f/3.5-5.6 instead. This will give you a strong performance and not require an adapter, BH #PA126035.

Can this lens be used with Canon RP and adapter?

Can this lens be used with Canon RP and adapter?
Asked by: Daniel
Yes, the Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF would be compatible for use with the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R and the Canon EOS RP Mirrorless Digital Camera. However, do note that the Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF is designed for the smaller APS-C sensor, while the Canon EOS RP Mirrorless Digital Camera is a full-frame camera. As such, you would have to use the APS-C Crop Mode feature in the camera when using this lens, and your maximum resolution would be reduced from 26.2 megapixels down to 10.1 megapixels.
