If photography is your long-time hobby, or if you're just getting started, a high quality, multi-function zoom lens might just be the right fit for your kit. The Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM is a great option, in fact, this lens was named the Best Entry Level DSLR lens for 2012 by the Technical Image Press Association and tts zoom range isperfect for capturing images on vacations and family memories close to home.
With its compact construction----it's just 3.5 inches long,so it's easy to carry and great to take on trips of all sorts: to the local soccer field, or around the globe.Reference: http://vimeo.com/47141862
