The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce the new 16.6x high ratio zoom lens-SIGMA 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM | Contemporary, incorporating 4 FLD glass elements to prioritize the optical performance.
Who decides it is impossible to combine portability with image quality? It is understood that the relationship between optical performance and shape of lens is more like trade-off, and we may need to prioritize one over the other. A high ratio zoom lens often requires compactness and enhancement of additional features, to be capable enough to cover various shooting scenes with convenience and versatility. However, SIGMA still believes that image quality is what matters the most. When travelling with minimal equipment the lens needs a wide zoom range especially as a telephoto lens may be needed unexpectedly without time to switch lenses. Even with a high ratio zoom lens, our goal is to satisfy enthusiastic photographers with the versatility of the lens and its optical performance. Therefore, we sought for the point where all the pieces, such as specification, performance and size, fall into place, and this lens is the fruit of this journey. This is good either as your first interchangeable lens or as a high performance all in one lens. Enjoy the performance of a high ratio standard zoom lens that has “the highest standard for excellent image quality based on each concept”, of which product lines Sigma has renewed and established with Sigma Global Vision.
