Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 overview

  • 1Description

An all-in-one zoom for APS-C cameras, the 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary Lens from Sigma provides users of Canon EF-mount cameras with an extremely versatile focal length equivalent of 28.8-480mm. 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.

Lens construction with 17 elements in 13 groups
Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting for higher contrast images

    Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 reviews

    18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Contemporary Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 63.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best solution for walk-around lens I've had the Canon 18-200 and the Tamron 18-270 lens and I'm much happier with the Sigma. The Tamron was more rugged than the Canon, which kept falling apart on me. This is a treacherous range for a zoom lens in terms of image quality, but the Sigma is closer to pro quality than the other two. The macro capability is awesome and a much appreciated feature. This is a true walk-around - drive to work - go on vacation lens that I feel comfortable walking out the door with when I don't want to lug L lenses around.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASANTLY SURPRISED I bought this lens from B&H for my wife who dislikes changing lenses when using her Canon SL-1 camera. The 18 - 300mm is a nice range for general photography and additional, the lens is very good for close-up photography. Just for grins, I shot photos at four different focal lengths with her lens and shot photos at the same focal lengths with my Canon 70-300mm II lens. When I did a little pixel peeping of all eight lens, I couldn't tell any decernable difference in the images. Now, neither of these lenses can be compared with Canon's L lenses, for sure. But, they do the job. Based on our limited use of the Sigma 18-300mm, I can highly recommend it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sigma 18-300 mm Lens for Canon I'm using this lens on a Canon EOS 70D. I was about ready to send it back as I could not count on focus in M mode. Well yesterday I put it on program mode, and set the ISO at 500 and got every shot hand held. So I think I will keep the lens. I have the Sigma 18-250 lens and I think this one has a slight edge in gathering light. It is not good in low light--you really need a tripod and manual focus. I prefer to use a tripod, but when traveling with groups this is sometimes not possible. After my next trip I will try to report more. This is a good lens if 1. you use a tripod in any mode or 2. you work from the P setting and let the camera decide for you. The newer cameras take pretty good shots at higher ISOs so you might try Auto ISO (I haven't done that yet). I prefer to set it at 100 or 200 ISO, use a tripod, manual focus and live view. That said, in good light this is a fine lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatility, Thy Name Is Sigma Superzoom I take lots of photos at on stage events such as concerts, plays and other theatrical happenings. Now I can go from a wide angle shot of the audience to a head to toe shot of the performer(s) to a closeup head and shoulders shot of a performer with one lens! And my first review is in of my images at a comedy show starring three comics. My client loved them. And I am now looking forward to doing some outdoor photography with this high quality does it all lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One body, One lens. People who claim to be professionals go on and on about how they only use prime lenses. That's bs. You want to be a better photographer? Then take more pictures! Every day! One camera body and one lens should be all you need to hone your eye. They say physically moving with a prime is the best, but I say that when shooting around the city, I don't want to be hit by a bus.. Or a biker.. Or anyone, for that matter. My point is its OK to buy a zoom lens. Now, about this lens in particular.. It's pretty sharp, the focal lengths are AMAZING, it's light, feels solid, focuses quick, and gives you all you need for landscape, portraits, street photography, or travel. Is it the SHARPEST? No. Is it the best in low light or indoors? Not at all. It does exactly what it's supposed to do, and it does it well. I carry it with me everyday and get some great shots w/o missing anything. Versatility is a beautiful thing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lens for all seasons I am a very experienced ameteur photographer and have been using digital photography for 18 plus years. I was originally a Canon man but then transitioned to Nikon in the old 35MM format, not that that matters. I was ready for a new digital and the Canon EOS70D was specified for me by a Design Imaging Studios' professional photographer Christian Scully. An RIT photography graduate, Christian is a Canon camera man and knows his trade and the products. He spec'd this lens and it is a home run. The 18-300 focal length is really great and covers all ranges in which I'd use the camera. The 3.5 to 6.3 is I think understated, or under-rated; it gathers light very well in all situations and I was very happy to use this at a sporting event this past weekend and capture incredible images in the available light at full range. This lens is also a twist zoom which much prefer over the slide zoom type which are very clunky for me. I gave this lens 5 stars because I can find no flaws and no complaints. Buy it and be happy!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Big things in small package Purchased this lens for my Canon 7D to take on a photo trip to Alaska. I am going to spend several weeks on the Aleutian Islands and am very limited on what I can take. I have done some testing of the lens and find it's lightweight and feels firm and solid. The auto focus is very fast and my test photos are very sharp edge to edge. Macro setting showed very good results. Overall it's a good lens for the price.
