Lens IS options Sigma 18-250, Sigma 70-300, others?
Aug 16, 2012

I guess I got spoiled when using the Panasonic m43 system with image stabilized zoom lens. Although Sony steady Shot produces good results, they are no better or worse than those of the lens IS Sigma lenses. For me, the stabilized view through the EVF is much more pleasant to use.

I want another lens for Yellowstone. Right now I use the Sigma 70-300 for long zoom but find that I often need a wider view than 70mm. I'm thinking of buying the Sigma 18-250 and selling the 70-300, though some report better IQ from the longer lens. I don't print larger than 8x10, ever, and doubt if I'd notice any difference.

Are there other lens stabilized zoom options for Sony? It seems that even Sigma is beginning to remove IS from it's Sony compatible lenses.
