Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM is the difference between good photography and true artistic
The Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM represents the difference between good photography and truly artistic shots. It comes from the Contemporary series, which emphasises clean and sharp photographs. The Sigma zoom lens meets all the parameters of professional usage. It is modern, compact and exudes high quality. It's time to make your photos come alive.
The modern Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO HSM offers a range of premium parameters for enthusiasts as well as professional artists. It consists of a total of 17 optical elements in 13 groups. It also contains aspherical glass lenses in FLD and SLD types. So what does that mean? The SLD lens is made from a glass with low-light scattering. This helps compensate for image magnification and chromatic aberration. The result is higher optical lens quality. But the FLD lens is even better. It is made from glass with the lowest possible scattering of light. Compared to ELD or SLD lenses, it delivers the most light. It ensures colour correction, higher photo sharpness and improved optical quality.
The MACRO abbreviation refers to a lens with a short focusing distance. You'll get amazing close-up photos of flowers, animals or objects. HSM, on the other hand, refers to a motor-driven lens that operates on the principle of ultrasonic waves. This ensures that the autofocus is silent and fast. By using the DC shortcut, it will only recognise digital SLR cameras designed with APS-C format imaging chips.
The focal length of the lens is 18-300mm. With this and 13x zoom, you can focus not only on the landscape in front of you but also on a particular point in the distance. You can always count on premium quality in the images you capture. With a 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 from 76.5 - 5.4°. Therefore, you can capture a larger area when shooting. There is also autofocus and ultrasonic focusing. Unlike the classic focusing, this is much faster and quieter. It makes practically no noise. It's based on the principle of piezoelectricity. And thanks to Sigma USB Dock compatibility, you can easily set up and update the firmware.
