Wouldn’t it be nice to have a single lens that could do the job when you’re on your vacation? Imagine, carrying with you a set of lenses for different types of situations! Now, that’s a drag.
Independent lens maker Sigma developed a new DSLR lens that promises to be lighter and smaller than previous lenses of its range.
The Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM may not be a telephoto lens, but it surely could make your trip much better. The Sigma 18-250mm lens can shoot everything precisely and the best part is, it is made up of a special polycarbonate material, called thermally stable composite (TSC), that makes it lighter and smaller from its counterparts.
Sigma said that this technology makes the lenses lighter and smaller.
18-250mm lenses without TSC usually weigh-in at 623g. The TSC technology enabled Sigma to create an 18-250mm lens that only weighs at 470g and it is also smaller by 1.3cm and 0.5cm in diameter.
Optical Stabilization technology by Sigma is also included. This means sharper handheld shots at lower shutter speeds.
The Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM will be available to Sony, Nikon, Canon and Pentax mounts. Sigma hasn’t released the price of the lens.
Is this a great innovation for Sigma?
