The Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro Zoom HSM Lens for Sony Cameras was designed for APS-C sensors and features a new matte black finish, thermally stable composite material in its construction and smaller and lighter design then previous models.
With exceptional performance, this 18-200mm camera lens does not sacrifice image quality for versatility. Having the ability to shoot from wide angle to telephoto is highly useful particularly for travel photography, landscape photography, street photography, portrait photography and nature photography.
With a minimum focusing distance of 15.4" (39 cm) and a magnification ratio of 1:3, the lens also acts as a macro lens. The maximum magnification for each focal length is indicated on the lens barrel. The product name on the front of the lens has been engraved, rather than painted, so that when shooting reflective objects up close, the letters will not show up in the image.
An improved minimum focusing distance of 14.7 inches paired with the use of Special Low Dispersion glass, the 18-200mm excels at bringing out great detail in close-up photography as well.
A Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures quiet, accurate and fast autofocus and an optical Stabilizer (OS) helps compensate for camera shake. Make this lens your all-in-one lens to handle any shooting scenario.
