Product Description

18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM. This works just with Canon

From the Manufacturer

High Performance, Compact, High Zoom Ratio Lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras

By revolutionizing the optical and structural design of the Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM, this new lens achieves a compact size and a minimum focusing distance of 13.8". New material, Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) maintains its structure and has little contractility especially in varying temperatures, is incorporated into the lens barrel. It is convenient when you wish to keep your equipment to a minimum and yet still be prepared for all opportunities and situations, such as travels.

A wide range of photography is possible in one lens

Covering wide angle 18mm to telephoto 250mm, this versatile lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras, is suitable for all-purpose photography including landscape, sport, and macro photography. It is convenient when you wish to keep your equipment to a minimum and yet still be prepared for all opportunities and situations, such as travels.

Excellent for macro photography

Close-up capability is improved with the minimum focusing distance of 13.8" throughout the entire zoom range, and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. In APS-C size equivalent, macro photography with approximately 1:2 magnification ratio is possible. In addition, with this lens, the size and flaming of subjects can be adjusted by rotating a zoom ring, making macro photography easier than using fixed focal macro lens. For further convenience, the maximum magnification ratio at each focusing distance appears on the side of the lens barrel.

New design. Compact size.
New design. Compact size.
Revolutionizing the design foundation results in compact size

Optimization of the power arrangement by such things as incorporating double-sided aspherical lenses, and reexamination of design, the filter diameter size is reduced. This compact size lens has the approximately 13x high zoom ratio with the filter size of diameter 62mm, and dimensions of diameter 2.9" x Length 3.5". It ensures portability and overall ease of use, making it perfect for travel and leisure photography.

New material TSC (Thermally Stable Composite)
New design. Compact size.
Thermally Stable Composite

The new material "TSC (Thermally Stable Composite)", which has little contractility especially in temperature changes, as well as maintaining firmness, is incorporated into the lens barrel. Compared to Polycarbonate which is generally used, TSC has higher elasticity by approximately 25%. Since thermal shrinkage is low, it has high affinity to metal parts which contributes to high quality product manufacturing. It also contributes to the parts such as the zoom ring and scaling to be slimmer

Lens Construction
Lens Construction

In a conventional lens, focusing requires an extension of the entire lens or the front lens group. However, to better accommodate autofocusing mechanisms and closeup photography, a need has arisen for lenses that do not change their length during focusing or suffer from focus-dependent variation in aberration. Therefore, Sigma has developed focusing systems that only move elements within the lens barrel. These incorporate smaller and lighter moving lens elements which help improve auto-focus speed. With their unchanging barrel length and small variation in the center of gravity, these lenses also enhance balance and stability for the photographer. Furthermore, since the front of the lens does not rotate, polarizing filters can be used with extra convenience.

MTF Chart

MTF (Modular Transfer Function) is one of the measurements that evaluates a lens' performance, and it contrasts sensitivity at different spacial frequencies. The horizontal axis is in millimeters and shows the distance from the center of the image toward the edges, and contrast value (highest value is 1) is shown in the vertical axis.

The readings at 10 lines per millimeter measure the lens' contrast ability (red lines), repeating fine parallel lines spaced at 30 lines per millimeter measure the lens' sharpness ability (green lines), when the aperture is wide open. Fine repeating line sets are created parallel to a diagonal line running from corner to corner of the frame, are called Sagittal lines (S) and sets of repeating lines vertical to these lines are drawn, called Meridional (M) line sets.

Distortion

effective distortion: When you take a picture of a lattice pattern, it will appear as the blue dotted line shows. the red line illustrates how the lattice pattern will appear in the actual picture when any lens distortion is taken into account.

relative distortion: In this chart, the horizontal axis shows the ideal image height (the distance from the center to the edge of the image [mm]). The vertical axis shows the extent of distortion. The extent of the distortion is represented by how much Y, which is the actual image height, grows (or shrinks) against Y0 which is the ideal image height.

Extent of distortion: D[%]=(Y-Y0/Y0)x100

When you take the picture of a square object, if the distortion amount show a minus value, the image will be seen as expanded (Barrel distortion). If the distortion amount is a plus value, it will be seen as a recessed (pincushi on distortion). When the distortion value is close to 0, the appearance of distortion is very minimal.

Vignetting

The horizontal axis shows the image height (the distance from the center to the edge of the image [mm]). The vertical axis shows the amount of light in the image (based on the amount of light in the image center being 100%). If the peripheral amount of light is lower than the center, the four corners of the image will be darker (vignetting).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. Simply Amazing.
By Geetar Don on December 4, 2015
As a just retired pro photographer I am used to having and using fine lenses. Nikon, Canon, Pentax etc. The thought that one day I'd be raving about a Sigma would have seemed unbelievable to me. But then again, what this lens does still seems unbelievable to me -- or almost so.

I bought the Sigma 18-250 as a replacement for a Canon wide to tele zoom whose auto focus had gotten 'iffy.' The reviews here and elsewhere encouraged me to chance it but my first photo session was what convinced me.

Every lens has to have compromises. Large aperture or smaller? Large zoom range or smaller? What to give up optically and what to keep. Sigma made the right decisions. Sharpness is good across the field at all settings. Color fringing always in at least decent control. And the lens feels just right on the moderate sized camera body it was designed for. Even the finish is a good match to that on my Canon T2i.

Controls fall readily to hand. The only things I'd have change if I could is the way the auto focus is driven (Not being able to 'tweak' the setting while still on auto is to me a disadvantage) and to see a bit less (Okay, maybe a lot less) linear distortion. But apart from those things I cannot think of any changes I'd like to see made.

Anyhow this lens is about picture taking. Fast, easy and fine. And for anything but critical architectural photography where the linear distortion might be a problem, this lens will truly do it all.

I'll attach a photo from that mentioned first session. Daybreak photographed hand-held with the Sigma on my Canon T2i. Sharp. Rich colors. Good contrast. No visible ghosts from the moon.

Yes, this lens is a winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a keeper
By bhinch on January 24, 2016
This lens is a keeper. I did a comparison shot with my 200mm against this sigma 250mm to compare the difference in zoom and quality of the shot. The camera was on a tripod and the lenses were tested within seconds of each other. Metadata included with comparison shots. Hope this helps.
I used autofocus for the emu and toad and used manual focus for the bees and butterflies. The sunset shot is nice considering there weren't any clouds in the sky...to no fault of the lens. I am quite happy with the images it produces.
Update: I added a sunset shot with clouds.

5.0 out of 5 stars This lens rekindled my love of photography!
By Vicki Adams on May 11, 2021
The first thing I liked was that it was delivered a week before estimated date. Good start. It was packaged very well and although I knew what I was going to find in the box, I was very favorably impressed by the looks of the lens and the heft of it. Without being heavy it just felt substantial.

Putting it on my camera, I found a new balance which I suspect is what the makers had in mind in the first place. While I had a medium zoom lens on the previously, I really appreciated the whole world of wide-angle view from the 18mm setting. The zoom function is still a little tight, but it will loosen up with use and does keep the lens from opening up when I point it down. It is silent when zooming and very solid and mechanically smooth.

And then there's using it - the image is so much more detailed and defined than what I had, which wasn't bad before, but the defination and use of this lens is top-drawer. I use the image stabilization in the camera and not the lens, so have no comment on that. The auto-focus is very fast but I did need to be careful to not hold the lens by the manual focusing ring. That one issue learned, I've found a desire to take a picture of nearly evertything I see. I feel like a kid learning the magic of photography all over again! Yep, I love this lens and the way it has impacted my ability and desire to find what is beautiful in my world and get great photos of it. I was fired up enough to re-read my cameras' owners manual to find out what else I could do with it. As Flounder said in the movie, Animal House, "This is great!"

The pctures above are unedited and taken yesterday, displaying the excellent macro ability and versality of this awesome lens.

5.0 out of 5 stars A TOTALY SUPERB LENS.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on October 1, 2012
I bought this lens recently from Amazon to replace my aging but reliable 5 years old non-stabalised Tamron 18-250mm zoom lens, i`m getting older now lolol, and find that i could not hold my Canon EOS 650D without the shakes, WOW!!!! this Sigma offering is totaly superb, the build quality is astonishing, built as, if not better than some of the Canons, It is near silent in operation and the image stabilizing is in one word FANTASTIC!!! what a difference, and my pictures are sharper, more so than the Tamron, i had read quite a few reviews on this new Sigma, near all resulting in 4-5 stars and also how a good few reviewers claimed this Sigma was better than the Tamron 18-270mm vc zoom lens (its main competitor) which seemed to get mixed reviews with a few reviewers only giving it around three stars, so after all the reading and u-tube reviews it was the Sigma for me, and boy! am i glad i bought it, it has never been off my 650D since day one and i put a 62mm Hoya UV filter on it the moment i took it out of the box, also Sigma, as far as i know at the moment of writing this, are offering a free 3 year guarantee on all their lenses, all you do is visit their website, enter the serial number of the lens, and where and when purchased, thats it, they confirm your guarantee by E-Mail, good on Sigma for this free guarantee (but check their website to see if the free offer is still current) All in all i HIGHLY RECOMMEND this lens, in my opinion the high quality results it produces negates the need to change lenses in most cases, why change lenses when you only need one, and also a special mention for Amazon for great communications and doing their utmost in getting the Sigma and super fast delivering it when they did, as they were having difficuly obtaining stock, and also well done to Sigma for showing some lens manufacturers how its done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great all-purpose lens.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on March 11, 2015
I bought a Canon 600d a couple of years ago with a Canon 18-135mm lens.

For a couple of years I was perfectly happy with this set up, but an upcoming trip to South Africa (and a Safari) promoted me to look for a longer lens.

While an L series lens is high up on my 'want' list, it's a very long way down my 'can afford' list and so I looked at lenses from Tamron and Sigma.

Much reading of reviews and watching of YouTube videos convinced me that this Sigma lens would be the one to go for. And I'm very pleased I did. It's smaller and lighter than the Canon lens it's replaced and the extra zoom has proven to be worthwhile.

At first I thought it was producing images with a lot of noise, but I've since discovered this was down to the settings I was using and reducing ISO has made a lot of difference.

I was very happy with the images I took while away and hopefully will continue to do so for years to come. At least until I've saved up some more money for my L series lenses.
