Kevin Carter has just posted a detailed review of Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM Lens at the DxOMark. With an overall score of 13 points tested on the Nikon D7100, this all-in-one lens is an improvement on earlier offerings for Nikon APS-C DSLRs.
“Solid Choice“, conclusion from DxOMark “With such an extensive focal range on offer, lenses like this never match the performance of models with less ambitious zoom ranges, but then again, what you’re paying for here is flexibility and convenience. Still, with relatively affordable pricing, stabilization (on the mount test), and a sonic-type AF motor, this all-in-one lens shows a modest improvement over earlier offerings. It also compares favorably with the rival Tamron equivalent, though that model’s wider focal range is difficult to ignore. With a fairly hefty $320 premium, the smaller and lighter Nikkor 18-300mm f3.5-6.3 model offers improved slightly sharpness over the 200-300mm range. But if budget is an issue, then the Sigma remains a solid choice…”
