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 HSM Contemporary Lens from Sigma provides users of Sony A-mount cameras with an extremely versatile focal length equivalent of 27-450mm. 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.

Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting for higher contrast images
"F" Low Dispersion, or FLD, glass is designed with performance similar to flourite elements with a low refractive index and low dispersion for minimizing chromatic aberration as well as clearer and sharper imagery

    Sigma 18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Reviews

    18-300mm f/3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM Contemporary Lens for Sony A is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent general purpose lens This replaces my original Tamron 28-300mm all purpose lens for my Sony A77. The zoom range is great from wide angle to long telephoto, equivalent to 450 mm on APS-C format. The autofocus is fast and quiet with the focus ring operating very smoothly in manual focus mode. I am a little disappointed with the fact that Sigma's 2X teleconverter will not mount on this 18-300mm like it does on my Sigma 50-500mm. However my Promaster 2X teleconverter does work very well on this lens to give me some extra range when travelling light. The focus ring still works very smoothly with the 2X attached where the Tamron 28-300mm the focus ring was very stiff and difficult to get an accurate focus manually. With the quiet auto-focus mechanism shooting in video mode virtually eliminates the need for an external microphone. Finally I can't quibble with the sharpness of the images.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent all purpose lens Light and quiet,a great walk around lens. Sharp throughout the focal range, slightly soft at 300 mm. Sigma lenses have, to me,an improved construction,which tended to keep me away from them previously. My wife uses this lens a lot for birds in the yard, and action shots of dog agility competitions. Used on A700, SLT A-65, and SLT A77II.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent general use lens The focal range on this lens allows for the photographer to carry less equipment, particularly in well lit situations. I note some vignetting in the images, but that is the only issue I have had so far. Focusing element is quiet and fast and the lens is light and compact. At the price, this is an outstanding product.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sigma Zoom is 150 mm NOT 300 mm!! I recently purchased this lens and the first thing I did was an A-B comparison with an older Sony 75-300 mm lens. I was ASTONISHED. The Sony provided 2x more magnification at the "300 mm" setting. When I reduced the Sony to 150 mm, the magnification was equivalent to Sigma at 300 mm. I returned the lens immediately. I thought Sigma was a reputable company.
