I'd rather you wait for the Canon EF-S 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS. Optical quality from the Sigma is nothing to shout about. Hopefully, Canon can put up a better performance.

are you a Canon user? if yes, like what MarkTan has said, wait for the Canon EF-S 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 IS. i am kinda looking forward to it.

Using the Sigma 18-200mm OS so far..iq wise its a superzoom lens so its nth to shout about, very versatile though, since i bought it to replace my kit18-55 i have not removed it. OS is noisy but effective(it emits a high pitched whine when active), HSM focusing is fast but hunts abit in low light. Overall if u are looking for a jack of all trades master of none this is the lens to get.

lens is quite soft at its widest apeture and suffers from vignetting at tele-end. barrel distortion at 18mm also.
