Sigma has announced a new lens – Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM superzoom for DSLRs.
The new lens is an entirely new design, much smaller than the previous version of the lens.
The new smaller lens incorporates what Sigma calls ‘Thermally Stable Composite’ (TSC) construction. It is a material that’s used by Sigma (only Sigma at the moment) and which allows Sigma minimize barrel expansion.
Ronkonkoma, NY, June 15, 2012 – Sigma Corporation of America, a leading researcher, developer, manufacturer and service provider of some of the world’s most impressive lines of lenses, cameras and flashes, is pleased to announce the availability of its new Sigma 18-250mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM lens starting in July 2012.

What differentiates this new lens from the current version of this lens is the size, the new lens is even smaller than the previous model. Here’s what else Sigma has to say:
“We’re constantly trying to improve and expand our lens lineup, and this addition is no exception,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. “By redesigning the lens and adding TSC, we are able to offer this very compact, feature-rich lens that is flexible enough to tackle a range of photography, including landscape, sport and macro. This is key for the everyday photographer who wants to travel light but pack the punch of a complete camera bag.”
