The Best Superzoom Lens I've Owned
Nov 27, 2012

This lens meets my needs on my Canon DSLRs better than any other lens of this type. I've owned the Canon 18-200IS since it was released and this new Sigma bests it easily: Better IQ, faster AF and lighter. I used an earlier version of this lens, without the "Macro" appellation on a Sony A55. I preferred that Sigma to the Sony 18-250 -- but this one is more capable, lighter and smaller.

All such lenses are a compromise. But this is the best of these "compromises" I've found.
