Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM and writes;
“With most superzoom lenses, you may expect to see a drop off in performance as the lens is zoomed in. This Sigma 18-250mm optic still holds up well at 80mm, with very good sharpness across the frame at maximum aperture and outstanding clarity across the frame at f/8.”

CNET reviews the Sigma 18-250mm f3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM and writes;
“Photographers often have to compromise when it comes to third-party lenses, particularly ones that cover such extreme focal lengths as the 18-250mm. This Sigma model is excellent value for money, offering good sharpness and performance, with a lengthy zoom.. Bokeh, or the out-of-focus areas of light in the image, is particularly pleasing. The 7 blade design produces smooth-looking and mostly circular bokeh. Colour rendition is very good, with accurate reproduction of natural scenes.”
