Last Friday, Sigma unveiled a new travel lens, compact with macro capabilities, the Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM, an interesting light and compact versatile 13x zoom lens for APS-C DSLRs. What to expect from such a lens ? The answer is on Sigma’s official website with an interesting sample images gallery of photographs taken with the 18-250mm DC MACRO OS HSM mounted on a Sigma SD1 in various situations : landscape, portrait macro, etc. Oddly, Sigma has chosen to publish full resolution images (that you can download) of the lens attached to the previous generation of Sigma Foveon sensor and not with the new 45-megapixel 3-layer sensor that comes in the SD15 which would have been beneficial to the images. Sigma website is great for this, you can always find a sample image gallery on every lens page.
Here is the link to Sigma’sofficial photo gallery from the Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM.
