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.

Unfortunately, after owning the lens for just over a year, it started malfunctioning. I was in the Grand Canyon and noticed the image through my viewfinder was shaking rapidly. Taking the picture and looking at the result though the LCD display showed a blurry mess. It was as if I turned off the OS, lowered the shutter speed, and shook the camera while taking the picture. Turning off the camera, turning off/on the OS, removing the lens, or anything else I could try did not solve the problem. Further, the phenomena I call The Jitter Effect, would come and go and vary in severity. Sometimes it would get nauseatingly bad if you kept your eye on the viewfinder waiting (hoping) for it to go away or just slight enough to ruin a potentially good picture when you had a chance to download and look at it on the computer screen. I realized the problem was specific to the Sigma and not the camera (Canon Rebel XSi) when I attached another lens and had no problems.
I sent the lens off to one of Sigma's authorized repair dealers and they did confirm that it was a problem with the OS part which which they were happy to fix for $250 not including return shipping. In perusing the Amazon reviews, there was one other person whose findings were suspiciously reminiscent of The Jitter Effect. I didn't pay for the repair (which itself only offered a 6 month warranty) as it was nearly the cost of a used replacement lens. The repair dealer even pointed that out. The cost was prohibitively high and so I am left with an unreliable lens.
Obviously, I am turned off by Sigma and will probably not buy any of their products ever again. Of course had my lens not suffered this defect I would be in line with many of the others hailing its virtues. The appeal of Sigma is the quality for their price. So yes, their lens are far cheaper than Canon or Tamron, but at least Tamron offers a 6 year warranty on their work.
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.
