    Sigma 18-200 mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS

    Sigma 18-200 mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS

    Photokina 2006: Sigma has announced another digital-only lens, the new 18-200 mm F3.5-6.3 DC OS lens. This compact lens offers a big 11x zoom range in combination with Sigma's own Optical Stabilizer. Just like the 18-50 mm DC lens this one features aspherical and low dispersion elements as well as multi-layer coating to reduce flare and ghosting. On the downside it is slow (F6.3) at telephoto (you can't have everything at this price). On a digital SLR with a 1.5x FOV multiplier this lens provides an equivalent field of view of 27-300 mm on a 35 mm camera.

    Didn't see a price anywhere, I was just reading about it, sounds like a versatile lens

    The reason I ask is there is a concurrent post going on about the same lens... and someone was asking about pricing...

    That post led me to the review page and I accidentally clicked on the "talk about it" button instead of the review.

    I just wanted to add to this thread as I have bought this lens for IR... its a very nice build and the optical quality is excellent... the price is definately right on par with someone who would want a "catch-all" lens for carrying around!!!
