About the Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 Contemporary Lens
Designed for APS-C cameras (equates to a 27-450mm), the Sigma 18-300mm 3.5-6.3 DC HSM OS Macro lens features a 16.6x zoom ratio covering focal lengths from wide to telephoto. It also boasts a 1:3 macro ratio. An enhanced optical stabilizer (OS) compensates for camera shake, while an optimized hyper-sonic motor (HSM) ensures quiet and fast autofocus. Four FLD (performance equal to fluorite) paired with one SLD glass element capture incredible sharp and contrasted images, all the way through the focal length. Top quality glass mitigates aberration to produce outstanding images.

Designed exclusively for the 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 lens, the Sigma close-up lens offers a maximum magnification ratio 1:2. Changeable angles of view enable zoom-macro photography.

Tested for Optimum Performance
Sigma lenses are born of well-thought-out design concepts, exceptional Japanese craftsmanship and manufacturing, and advanced lens performance testing and evaluation. To this end, Sigma has developed its own A1 proprietary MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system using 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors. Even the most elusive high-frequency details are within the scope of Sigma’s quality control inspections. Every Global Vision lens is A1 tested, analyzed and approved before leaving the factory, ensuring maximum performance out of the box.
