11.1x high zoom ratio lens with a built-in AF motor allowing auto focus with all Nikon APS-C DSLR cameras.
The Sigma 18-200mm high-zoom-ratio lens is designed exclusively for Canon digital SLR cameras and is capable of covering a wide range of focal lengths, from wide-angle to telephoto. Two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements and two hybrid aspherical lenses correct for all types of aberrations, letting Sigma house the extended-range super-zoom lens in a compact and lightweight body that measures 70mm in diameter and 78.1mm long and weighs a mere 14.3 ounces. The new lens coating, meanwhile, reduces flare and ghost--a common problem shared by many digital cameras--while also creating an optimum color balance. Other details include a minimum focusing distance of 45cm (17.7) at all focal lengths, a high zoom ratio of 11:1, and a maximum magnification of 1:4.4.
The lens design incorporates an inner focusing system that prevents the front of the lens from rotating, making it particularly suitable for using circular polarizing filters and petal-shaped lens hoods. In addition, the overall length of the lens never changes during focusing, making the lens convenient to handle and easy to use. Finally, the lens's zoom lock switch eliminates "zoom creep" during transport--a convenient addition when traveling. The lens, which includes a metal mount, is backed by a one-year warranty.

Both lenses auto-focus accurately (no front or back focus) although the Sigma is slower to lock focus in low light and is a little noisier in getting there. Their IS/OS are equally effective at about 3 stops of compensation. Build quality, size and weight are about the same and both use the same 72mm filter size. Sigma includes a lens hood while Canon wants to sell you one.
In summary, the Canon is slightly better for me due to the faster and quieter low-light focus and improved telephoto image quality. The trade-off is poorer image quality than the Sigma for wide angle shots, even after stopping down. Finally, the Sigma lens costs about $200 less than the Canon at this time.
[I've used the lens with a Canon 7D, and have encountered no issues with the combination]
I've taken about 2000 photos with it since purchasing it about 2 months ago. And the results have mostly very good. Keeping in mind that my intent was to have a small lens that could take my vacation snapshots. For that situation, I really want something that consistently focuses pictures, that has effective anti-shake capabilities.
So I used this indoors, outdoors, with almost no light, in broad daylight, in caves, pretty much everywhere. Here are my observations:
1) In general, the lens handled nicely. As you zoom in/out, the lens is not as smooth as more expensive lenses (not a big deal), however, the zoom mechanism is like a telescope and as it engages the next "section" you have to get past a "notch". This is a bit of trouble if you're shooting movies with it as you cannot do a smooth zoom. For still pictures, it is not an issue
2) The anti-shake works pretty well. I hand-held shots in caves and they mostly came out very sharp.
3) In broad daylight, you get mostly in-focus shots, however, as I went through my pictures, there were times when taking pictures in broad daylight that were out of focus. Not consistently, but about 5-10 out of 500 where you think "How could the lens mess that up?". I don't have an answer for why; I have to conclude the focus is slow
4) Its a light lens. Good thing, the 7D is very heavy
5) At the ends of the zoom ranges, the pictures are dead on in terms distortion. In between, there are a few oddities. I frankly don't care about that. I'll use a different lens for those times.
6) I used it at races in bright sunlight, and I was able to get consistently sharp pictures of motorcycles traveling at extremely high rates of speed.
Overall I like it because it take pretty good pictures, great zoom range, light, and inexpensive enough that I'm not worried about the lens being damaged.
I considered the Canon in the same zoom range, but based on reviews, this lens is similar in performance and is about $250 cheaper. That's significant in this price range.
