    Very nice lens. New leader in the “walkaround” category, August 8, 2012
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I am very very pleased with this newest superzoom from Sigma, paired with my Canon 60D. Build quality is excellent. Image quality is sharp at both ends of the range. Focus is quick and quiet. OS works extremely well. It is light weight and compact compared to others in this category, which adds to its value as a “walkaround” lens. To top it all off, the price is outstanding for a lens with this feature set, build, and image quality. (It’s ~$100 cheaper than the “comparable” Tamron, and ~$30 less than the shorter focal length Canon 18-200.)

    I had used the Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD LD Aspherical IF Macro Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras for a while last year, when it was the “hot” 3rd party superzoom. But, the images looked a little soft to me, especially at the long end. Plus, I didn’t care for the build quality and feel of the zoom/focus rings at all. (The Tamron is made in China, while this Sigma is made in Japan.) And, IIRC, the Tamron zoom ring operated in the opposite direction from Canon and Sigma, which wreaks havoc with one’s muscle memory. The Tamron also suffered from lens creep, which the Sigma, so far, has not.

    I have been using the Canon EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras with my 60D until switching to this Sigma, and the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Standard Zoom Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras with my T2i before that. This Sigma lens focuses quicker, is much easier to hold and carry, and results in the same quality shots. It is much smaller and lighter than the canon 18-200. Yet, looks and feels as well made or arguably better than the Canon lenses. The AF/MF, OS, and lock buttons are positioned better than the Canon’s. The Canon 18-200 also suffers from lens creep, which the Sigma, so far, does not. The image quality is about the same, although the Sigma does show a little less CA, which is a plus.

    There is an older version of this lens with an almost identical title, just not “Macro” Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM IF Lens for Canon AF Digital SLR Cameras. But, it is larger, heavier, and slower to focus. However, if money is an issue, it’s ~$120 cheaper than this one. So, it might be a viable option for you. But, not having used it, I cannot speak to its image quality, build, or operation. It does get mostly positive reviews, though.

    I can, however, highly recommend *this* Sigma for your Canon EOS system body. Of course, it will not result in images as sharp as most prime lenses or almost any L series lens. But, I find it the best of the current crop of “walkaround” lenses available for the Canon APS-C sensor models. (It is not recommended for full-frame models.) I can almost guarantee it will rarely see any time not attached to yours, if you are like me and want a single lens for most of your everyday shots. Sure, there are plenty of situations that require that prime portrait or macro lens, or that long telephoto zoom. But, when you’re at the dog park, or the kids’ birthday party, or the family reunion, or tourist destination, etc, this is the lens.

    Great lens – image stablization PLUS ultrasonic motor with 18-250mm range…., June 15, 2013
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’m reading all the other reviews here saying to myself “are these folks really taking this much time and energy nit-picking over small reductions in image quality, or why this lens is not ACTUALLY 250mm but more like 239mm?!?”

    Look at the facts – this lens is only $400 AND it’s got a huge range, optical stabilization, an equivalent USM super-quiet motor, and capable of sharp, clean images!

    Judge things on their own merits, not compared to lenses 6-8x the price. Some of these other reviews are actually akin to “I bought this Camaro for $35,000 and was duped into thinking it handled nearly as well as a Lamborghini Aventador at $375,000.”

    Will you get superior images from L-series glass? Every time. Is the auto-focus USM from Canon superior? You bet. Is the IS quieter than the OS from Sigma? Sure is. Is the low light performance of this lens inferior to the Canon counterparts at 3x the price? You know it.

    BUT….

    If you are on a budget AND are willing to compromise a tiny bit in each of these areas will you get a lens that comes very close to it’s competitors for a GREAT DEAL LESS?! Of course!

    Enough said. Get the lens, you’ll be happy.

    Good telephoto lens if you’re on a tight budget, October 24, 2005
    By 
    E. Song (New York, NY) –
    (REAL NAME)
      

    I disagree with Jeff Kershaw’s review for the older version of this lens (Sigma 70-300mm APO Super), in that it’s very unfair to compare this lens to a L series lens, as those lens start at over $500 due to it’s very specific high-grade optics manufacturing process. To compare this lens to a lens that starts at over 4X the price is like comparing a Honda Civic to a Porsche. Like the civic, this Sigma lens is well rounded, good for beginner and consumer SLR photographers, and maybe some “pro-sumer” on a tight budget, or even students. For the price, this lens is a bargain, as I’ve been doing a lot of research before buying this lens (price range in the $130-225 for telephoto). What I liked most about this is the APO lenses, which prevent reflection inside the lens which creates “ghosting” (inverted light ghostly shadow that appers on your image) which is usually apparent in nightshots. During the day APO lenses decrease those “purple fuzzies” (chromatic aberration) you see against high contrast (like a bird’s wing against the sky). Granted this lens is no Porsche like the Canon L series, but for the price range, may hit the spot for some folks. I mainly use this camera for macro photography and taking photos of the Empire state building from my roof, which is 24 blocks away. This lens is definitely better quality than the Canon 75-300 USM III f/4-5.6 which is usually considered the benchmark for this price range telephoto.

    Also note that there are different versions of these lenses (despite close naming), so be careful about what you buy. The is a APO DG version with Macro specifically made for digital SLRs which is what is listed here (the “official” name of this lens is: 70-300mm F4-5.6 APO DG Macro), and a non APO version of this lens which is a bit cheaper (but not worth it at all). Also there’s ones listed as APO II which is the “older” version, which I don’t know the quality of, but know that it is older than the model listed here.

    Summary: If you’re on a tight budget this is as good as it gets in this price bracket. The next tier where there’s significant gains in lens imaging doesn’t even start until you start spending in $600-1800 range.

    The best lens in this price range…hands down., August 7, 2006
    First of all I must tell you that I was dragged kicking and screaming into the world of digital SLR photography. Not because I had a love of film on the contrary I hate film photography, it was more like I hated the thought of lugging around lenses and all the other stuff. I managed to build my business and reputation using fixed lens “Pro-sumer” cameras. Long story short what made me move to SLRs was performance, speed, quality and lenses like this one.If you have ever read any of my other reviews you already know I am a terrible gear head and often tend to trick out my cameras to the hilt! I was buying lenses for a rebel XT when I bought this lens on a whim. To start 70-300mm is nothing earth shaking every lens maker in the business has at least one model in this range, but the real kicker with the Sigma is the macro feature, that in a word is simply amazing. The macro feature can be switched in at 200-300mm and is tack sharp for everything from flowers, to coins to whatever!! And considering the focal range this is a relatively fast lens. In a normal capacity its dead sharp in all applications no matter what your light conditions inside or out. I have even used this lens for wedding portraits and got great results. As with all Sigma lenses the build quality is excellent as is the glass giving it the feel of a lens costing a whole lot more. As for accessories I would reccomend both a UV filter as well as a good CPL. Size wise it is what I would rate medium sized (as opposed to my Sigma 50-500mm) this makes it easy to manipulate and use in the field. If you are a Nikon user remove the lens hood and you will get amazing results using your pop-up flash! (Canon doesn’t do as well with this.)

    Now. If you are into pictures of the great outdoors the next thing I would add is a 2x teleconverter, Sigma claims this lens is not compatable with them and in a sense its not. But if you are willing to manually focus, and adjust the F stops your self you can pump this baby up to a 140-600mm super-telephoto!! I have one of these lenses for both of the SLR’s I use (Canon 20D & Nikon D200) and with both using the teleconverter I do have to focus manually but they will meter light! Be prepared however results may be different on your camera. So bottom line is your looking for a great quality lens at a price you can live with? This is it. Are you a new or about to be new digital SLR user? This should be your first lens no question. Canon and Nikon lenses do focus faster and quieter, but what are you doing with that camera that you need to be so fast and quiet anyway? This lens is on either one or both of my cameras all the time, and when you shoot pictures for a living that says alot. Until next time be well and happy shooting!

    Excellent, December 17, 2006
    By 
    simlife (Phoenix, AZ) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I rarely write reviews for stuff I buy on Amazon, but I felt I needed to share my thoughts on this lens.

    Sigma has always been a better “out of the box” experience than Canon, which unfortunately does not see fit to ship a $6 hood for a $600 lens. Sigma gives you a carrying case and a hood. The “feel” of this lens is excellent. It’s tight (no focus creep), and a sort of rubberized matte finish that just screams “pro”. Top marks here.

    From an optical standpoint, the lens is incredibly good, considering the price. I fired off about 70 shots outside to test the aperture at the different focal ranges. Yes, there is some softness at 300mm, but this can be mostly offset by stopping it down to 4.0. The rest of the focal range is fine. I used my Rebel XT and a Canon UV filter (50mm) for the tests. In the macro mode, there’s excellent contrast and saturation, and very good bokeh.

    Focus is a little slow, but then maybe I’m spoiled by the Canon glass, which focuses like nothing else. Still, there’s very little hunting here, except in lower ambient light. This is not an indoor lens, nor is it a walkaround utility one. But for telephoto work and even a bit of macro (as it were), it’s an extremely good deal.

    All in all, I’d highly recommend getting this, especially as a first-time telephoto for people who are getting into DSLRs. The closest Canon equivalent is about $100 more expensive, and I don’t believe it comes with a hood or case.
