First Impressions: Sigma 18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM zoom [nid:403188]

First look at Sigma's revamped all-in-one zoom lens

We spent a few minutes with Sigma’s revamped super-zoom lens

Tech spec: F/6.3 at 200mm for 1/200th sec. ISO 800. Wide open and all the way at the telephoto end, it focused smoothly and quietly. VIEW FULL-RES

Tech specs: F/6.3 at 200mm for 1/20th sec. ISO 400. I wanted to give the image stabilization a chance to do its thing and it did so impressively. 1/20th at 200mm isn’t simple stuff for an IS system. VIEW FULL-RES

Tech specs: F/6.3 at 200mm for 1/40th sec. ISO 400. Another example of the image stabilization in action. Also, it manages pretty good separation between the subject and the background, even though it can only go to f/6.3. VIEW FULL-RES
