  • Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC

    8 out of 10 points and recommended
    Great all purpose lens!
    Not weatherproof

    Do a lot of outdoor activities and changing lens is a real pain. I bought this lens because in the midst of changing a lens I would often miss the shot. That's the real issue because getting the photo trumps the pixel perfect image quality. Sure spending $10000 on great lenses will get the quality. Give a great photographer a point and shoot and a lousy photographer the best photo equipment on the planet and what happens? A lot of great point and shoot photos that can't be printed past 8x10 and a lot of lousy photos that can be printed to the size of a billboard. (well maybe not quite!) Anyway this lens has it's place and it does take great photos depending upon your ability as a photographer!
