Sigma 18-300mm F3.5-6.3 DC Macro | Contemporary lens on a trip to Japan and Singapore. It’s a very versatile lens and one that I found to be particularly well suited to travel. Purists will say you must have a high quality prime lens (Sigma do those, too!) for the job – and technically speaking, they’re right – but if you prefer to travel light, prefer convenience over absolute perfection and want to avoid the hassle of frequently changing lenses whilst on the move, you’ll be hard pressed to find something better to do the job. With this lens I was able to capture anything from the daily activities at Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market… …to details of lanterns in Singapore’s Chinatown, all without the need to change lenses and with a wide range of focal lengths available at the flick of the wrist. This is a surpisingly light lens with an 11.1x zoom ratio, weighing just over one pound. It comes with Optical Stabilizer to help with achieving sharper images without the need for a tripod. The lens has also been well received with many positive reviews online and has scooped a prestigious award from TIPA (Technical Image Press Association). Now, courtesy of Sigma Imaging UK Ltd. and A Luxury Travel Blog, this very same lens could be yours!
