Details

The ultra compact Sigma 18-250mm is extremely versatile and boasts a massive 13.8x zoom ratio. Designed for digital SLRs the super-zoom features the exclusive Sigma Optical Stabiliser technology to compensate for camera shake at slower shutter speeds and helping to give crisp definition in your results. It is convenient when you wish to keep your equipment to a minimum and yet still be prepared for all opportunities and situations, such as travels.

A wide range of photography is possible in one lens

Covering wide angle 18mm to telephoto 250mm, this versatile lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras, is suitable for all-purpose photography including landscape, sport and macro photography. It is convenient when you wish to keep your equipment to a minimum and yet still be prepared for all opportunities and situations, such as travels.

Excellent for macro photography

Close-up capability is improved with the minimum focusing distance of 35cm throughout the entire zoom range, and maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9. In APS-C size equivalent, macro photography with approximately 1:2 magnification ratio is possible. In addition, with this lens, the size and flaming of subjects can be adjusted by rotating a zoom ring, making macro photography easier than using fixed focal macro lens. For further convenience, the maximum magnification ratio at each focusing distance appears on the side of the lens barrel.

Revolutionizing the design foundation results in compact size

Optimization of the power arrangement by such as incorporating double-sided aspherical lenses, and reexamination of design, the filter diameter size is reduced. This compact size lens has the approximately 13x high zoom ratio with the filter size of diameter 62mm, and dimensions of diameter 73.5mm x Length 88.6mm. It ensures portability and overall ease of use, making it perfect for travel and leisure photography.

TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) material

The "TSC (Thermally Stable Composite)" material, which has little contractility especially in temperature changes, as well as maintaining firmness, is incorporated into the lens barrel. Compared to Polycarbonate which is generally used, TSC has higher elasticity by approximately 25%. Since thermal shrinkage is low, it has high affinity to metal parts which contributes to high quality product manufacturing. It also contributes to the parts such as the zoom ring and scaling to be slimmer.

Brass made bayonet mount

This lens incorporates brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and solidity, same as the mount for camera body. The special treatment to reinforce the strength is applied on the surface to make it a high quality lens that is resistant for long-term use.

Superior optical performance

SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element offers excellent correction of color aberration. Three aspherical lenses including double-sided aspherical lens together with the latest design, prevent and correct all types of aberrations including astigmatism, achieving high quality images throughout the entire zoom range.

Flare and ghosting conscious design blades

From an early stage, flare and ghosting are thoroughly measured to establish the design which is resistant to strong incident light such as backlight. Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting, and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. Supplied petal-type hood can be attached to block out extraneous light which has a harmful influence on rendering of the lens, and prevent internal reflections to occur.

Hyper Sonic Motor

The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures fast and quiet auto-focusing.

Rounded diaphragm

The rounded 7 blade diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out of focus areas.
