Emphasizing image quality. This is a SIGMA's new all-in-one lens.

Who decides it is impossible to combine portability with image quality? It is understood that the relationship between optical performance and the shape of the lens is more like a trade-off, and we may need to prioritize one over the other. A high ratio zoom lens often requires compactness and enhancement of additional features, to be capable enough to cover various shooting scenes with convenience and versatility. However, SIGMA still believes that image quality is what matters the most. When travelling with minimal equipment the lens needs a wide zoom range especially as a telephoto lens may be needed unexpectedly without time to switch lenses. Even with a high ratio zoom lens, our goal is to satisfy enthusiastic photographers with the versatility of the lens and its optical performance. Therefore, we sought for the point where all the pieces, such as specification, performance and size, fall into place, and this lens is the fruit of this journey. This is good either as your first interchangeable lens or as a high performance all in one lens. Enjoy the performance of a high ratio standard zoom lens that has "the highest standard for excellent image quality based on each concept", of which product lines Sigma has renewed and established with Sigma Global Vision.

 Incorporates 4 FLD and 1 SLD glass elements, and minimizes chromatic aberration. It makes a difference in the rendering performance toward the telephoto-end.

Excellent optical performance that satisfies experienced users


This lens incorporates 4 FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite plus 1 SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element. It enables this lens to minimize the chromatic aberration, especially toward the telephoto-end, and provide clear image quality with high colour fidelity

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 wide-end, and carries extraordinary expressive capability from the centre to the corners.

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.

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. 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

High performance line corresponding with various photography situations


SIGMA is organizing all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art and Sports. Among the three, the Contemporary line is a high performance line that 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. 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 user.

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 minimize 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.
