Accumulated lens technology leads to superior image quality

The most appropriate optical glass elements are selected to optimize all focal lengths of the lens. From wide-angle to telephoto and macro ranges, it offers superior image quality throughout the entire zoom range. It compensates for the distortion very well, especially at the wide-end, and carries extraordinary expressive capability from the centre to the corners.

Newly Developed OS system

Renewed OS system for higher compensation

By reviewing the system construction and the algorithm of firmware, 3.5 stops of compensation has been achieved.

* Based on CIPA's guideline. Measuring at tele-photo end, when it is attached to the camera with APS-C image sensor.

A close-up lens is exclusively developed for this product (sold separately), which will not affect the optical performance of the original lens. It offers a maximum magnification ratio 1:2 and changeable angles of view enables zoom-macro photography.

Exclusive close-up lens (optional accessory)

The minimum focusing distance of the lens is 39cm, its maximum magnification ratio is 1:3 and the working distance is 14cm, which is similar to macro lenses. In addition to this, a close-up lens, AML 72-01 (sold separately), has been developed exclusively for this product. It ensures consistent rendering across the zoom range and enables higher performance in macro photography at 1:2. Even when this close-up lens is attached the image taken at maximum magnification ratio, at 300mm, infinity, shows very little difference in MTF performance.

* Focus is at infinity, and the recommended shooting range is 80-300mm. 

Zoom-macro for enhanced macro photography

Just by rotating the zoom ring, it enables photographers to take close-up pictures of subjects such as jewellery and flowers. The maximum magnification ratio at respective focal lengths is indicated on the lens barrel, thus it is easy to see what the object size will be at the sensor. Furthermore, in order to secure a clear field-of-view, the design of this lens is very thorough, even down to the precise position of the engraved letters on the lens.

New product lines from SGV concepts that are setting new benchmarks for image quality.

[Contemporary]

Latest technology for high optical performance and compactness

High performance line corresponding with various photography situations

SIGMA is organising all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art and Sports. Among the three, the Contemporary line is a high performance line which incorporates the very latest technology making it possible to accommodate both high optical performance and compactness for use in various photography situations. Sigma has solved the difficult problem of keeping the size and weight down without compromising optical performance and function with the latest technology. 

[SIGMA GLOBAL VISION]

“SIGMA Global Vision” - SIGMA is working on its full renewal of the products, and the new lens lines share all the following elements.

Evaluation with SIGMA’s own MTF measuring system “A1”

We used to measure lens performance with an MTF measuring system using conventional sensors. However, we’ve now developed our own proprietary MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system (A1) using 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors. Even previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of our quality control inspections. The SIGMA 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC MACRO OS HSM will all be checked using this “A1” before they are shipped.

Made in Japan” with the best craftsmanship

All Sigma's manufacturing – right down to the moulds and parts – is carried out under an integrated production system, entirely in Japan. We are now one of the very few manufacturers whose products are solely "made in Japan". We like to think our products are somehow imbued with the essence of our homeland, blessed as it is with clean air and water, and focused, hard-working people. We pride ourselves on the authentic quality of Sigma products, born of a marriage between highly attuned expertise and intelligent, advanced technology. Our sophisticated products have satisfied professionals and lovers of photography all over the world, because our manufacturing is based on genuine craftsmanship, underpinned by the passion and pride of our experts.

Applicable for the Mount Conversion Service that enables lenses to be long term assets

Over the years, Sigma has manufactured an extremely wide variety of interchangeable lenses. Leveraging our unique know-how and resources, we present our new mount conversion service, which is available for the interchangeable lenses from our new product lines. Sigma will convert the current lens mount internal components, allowing you to continue using your favourite Sigma lens with a different camera body. Thanks to this service, you can use a favourite lens for many years to come, unrestricted by your original choice of camera system.

Note: Sigma’s mount conversion service differs from ordinary repairs and product support and is not offered at your local

Sigma dealer or camera store. In order to apply for the service, please contact your nearest authorized subsidiary/ distributer of Sigma. 

SIGMA USB DOCK - Customizable to your needs

With the optional SIGMA USB DOCK and the dedicated special software “SIGMA Optimization Pro”, you can update your lens firmware, or adjust focus points by attaching this lens to a SIGMA USB DOCK connected to a computer.

Brass made bayonet mount

This lens incorporates a brass bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term use.

Newly Developed Hyper Sonic Motor

For comfortable and smooth use with the high zoom ratio, 16.6 times, it incorporates a bigger HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) which is newly developed for this lens. It is powerful enough to ensure high speed and quiet AF.

Designed to minimise flare and ghosting

Flare and ghosting were thoroughly measured and monitored from the lens development stage to establish an optical design which is resistant to strong incidental light such as backlight. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

 Incorporating Rounded Diaphragm

The 7 blade-rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image.
