New 18-300 Sigma Lenses for APS-C Sensor Cameras

Posted by on Sep 12, 2014 |

Earlier today, Sigma announced a new 18-300mm lens for APS-C sensor cameras.1 This sounds like it could be an awesome “walk around” lens, with a couple of caveats:

  1. The Sony version apparently will not feature optical stabilization; and

  2. It was not confirmed that the Sony version would fit the E Mount system.2

Needless to say, I will be watching this lens closely.

  1. That’s a 27-450mm equivalent focal length. 

  2. I cannot imagine they would make an A Mount version, but the press release doesn’t specify.
