The May 2012 issues of Parenting and Popular Photography magazines feature our new advertisement for the Sigma 18-250 F3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM all-in-one lens featuring a lovely shot of a mother and daughter sitting together on a footbridge above a waterfall and creek in the woods. This versatile lens is a great addition to the camera kit of family photographers as it is compact, lightweight covers a great focal range, and has Optical Stabilizer for making sharp shots in low light without a tripod.
This 13.8X zoom is designed specifically for Digital SLR cameras with APS-C sized sensors–Canon’s Rebel series, Nikon’s D3000, D90, all current Pentax DSLRs, and Sony A-Mount APS-C cameras such as the A77, A65 and A35. (Click here for the full chart of compatible cameras in the various lens mounts.)
