  • Standard Lens
  • Hyper Sonic Motor
  • Super Multi-layer Coating
  • Filter Diameter: 72 mm
  • Excellent for Macro Photography
  • 30% smaller than the previous conventional model - by incorporating a smaller OS unit and optimizing the structure and power distribution of optical elements, the lens barrel has become more compact
  • TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) compound material which has a high affinity to metal parts, is introduced in the lens barrel, resulting in better durability of the parts and smaller zoom rings and scale rings
  • Optical Stabilizer Technology - the OS function offers the use of shutter speeds up to 4 stops lower than would otherwise be possible
  • Incorporates 2 FLD ("F" Dispersion) glass elements which have the performance equal to fluorite glass, 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element and 3 aspherical glass lenses, including double sided aspherical lens
  • By optimizing the power alignment of the lens, both chromatic aberration of magnification and axial chromatic aberration have been corrected to ensure excellent image quality throughout the entire zoom range
  • Another feature of this Contemporary lens is the capability of working with the USB Dock (optional) and special software (Sigma Optimization Pro) to update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus
  • Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) provides quiet, high speed and accurate auto-focusing. Inner focusing system eliminates front lens rotation, making the lens particularly suitable for using the supplied lens hood and circular polarizing filters
  • Each lens is tested using Sigma own proprietary "A1" MTF quality control
  • Measuring system - even previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of this quality control inspection
  • Super multi-layer coating minimizes flare and ghosting
  • Lens construction: 16 elements in 14 groups
  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 8.7" (22 cm) throughout the entire zoom range
  • Maximum magnification ratio: 1:2.8
  • 7 blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image

After MUCH research and consideration I decided to purchase the Sigma as a replacement for my 18-55 kit lens. The difference in picture quality is remarkable. The trade off is of course the size and weight but the far superior glass is worth it.

The results are consistent and the zoom action is silky smooth and as an added bonus the new Sigma lenses are pretty nice to look at too. I'm quite pleased with the purchase and would definitely recommend this lens as a reasonably priced upgrade.

  • Amazing replacement of kit lens

  • October 13, 2013
  • By: Alex

Bought this lens in May of 2013 before going for holidays in Michigan. This lens allowed me to shoot very nice landscapes, portraits and was suitable for low light. Very sharp in the center of the frame but with little softness at the edges at 17mm but it never bothered me as it worked fine with my photography style. Sharp across the frame at other focal lengths. Very nice bokeh at 2.8 but could be busy at times at 5.6 - nevertheless a huge improvement over kit 18-55 (which I sold). This is my walk-around lens that stays on my camera most the time (I also use Nikon 35mm 1.8 DX for low light or if I need deeper DOF). Highly recommended!
