The modern Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM offers a chase parameter for enthusiasts as well as professional artists.
The Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM lens is the difference between decent photography and true artistic shots. It comes from the Contemporary range, which emphasizes clean and sharp photographs. The Sigma zooming lens has all the parameters demanded by professional users. It is a modern, compact and high-quality piece of technology that will breathe life into your photos.
The modern Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM lens boasts a variety of top-class parameters for enthusiasts as well as professional photographers. It consists of a total of 17 optical elements in 13 groups. It's equipped with aspheric glass and FLD and SLD lenses. What exactly does that mean, you ask? An SLD lens is made of low-light glass and compensates for image magnification and chromatic aberration, resulting in higher optical quality of the lens. The FLD lens, however, is the kicker. It is made from the glass with the lowest scattering of light. Compared to ELD or SLD lenses, it has the best light permeability. It ensures colour correction, increased sharpness and further improved optical quality.
The MACRO abbreviation refers to a lens with a short focal distance, which enables you to get amazing close-up photos of flowers, animals or other objects. HSM, on the other hand, refers to a motor-driven lens that uses ultrasonic waves to operate. This makes the autofocus absolutely silent and fast. Finally, the DC abbreviation means the lens is only designed for DSLR cameras with APS-C imaging chips.
The focal length of the lens is 18-300mm. Coupled with the 13x zoom, it allows you to focus not only on the landscape in front of you, but also on a particular point in the distance. Whatever you choose, you can always rely on the first-rate quality of your captured images. With f/3.5-6.3 aperture, you can get crisp photos even in poor lighting conditions.
The Sigma lens also offers a very good viewing range of 76.5° - 5.4°, meaning you can cover a larger area when shooting. Other features include autofocus, optical image stabilization and, above all, ultrasonic focusing which is much faster and quieter than conventional focusing. It is based on the principle of piezoelectricity and produces almost zero noise. Additionally, with the Sigma USB Dock compatibility, you can easily set up the lens and update its firmware.
