With the highly versatile, ultra-compact Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC Macro OS HSM zoom lens, high-quality images are assured across the zoom range, while the state of the art Hyper Sonic Motor ensures fast and quiet auto-focusing. Despite its small dimensions, the lens boasts a massive 13.8x zoom ratio as well as incorporating Sigma's unique Optical Stabiliser (OS) technology to help counter camera shake at slower shutter speeds that can cause ruin crisp image quality.
Sigma’s unique OS technology
This lens is equipped with Sigma’s own unique OS technology. This system offers the use of shutter speeds approximately 4 stops slower. It also compensates for camera shake when shooting moving subjects such as motor sports. *Sony and Pentax mounts do not incorporate Optical Stabilisation.
Superior image quality
One SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass element offers excellent correction of colour aberration and three aspherical lenses, including a double-sided aspherical lens, prevent and correct all types of aberrations such as astigmatism, achieving high image quality throughout the entire zoom range.
Reduced Ghosting and Flare
Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting, ensuring sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.
Minimum focusing distance of 35cm throughout the entire zoom range
A minimum focusing distance of 35cm throughout the entire zoom range and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9 makes this lens ideal for close-up photography. When the APS-C size sensor is taken into consideration, the effective maximum reproduction ratio becomes 1:2.
Quiet and fast AF
An inner focusing system and the incorporation of HSM provide fast and quiet auto-focusing. *AF will not function if the Pentax camera bodies do not support HSM.
This lens is supplied with a Petal-type hood to block out extraneous light and reduce internal reflections.
A magnification scale is displayed on the lens barrel, ensuring ease of use.
*Vignetting will occur if the lens is used with digital cameras with image sensors larger than APS-C size or 35mm SLR cameras.
HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor)
This lens uses a motor driven by ultrasonic waves to provide a quiet, highspeed AF.
OS (Optical Stabilizer) Function

Can I repay early? If so how?
No repayments are scheduled in the initial six-month deferral period. However, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, but a £29.00 early-settlement will be incurred. Such repayments may be made to Barclays Partner Finance by cheque, debit card or standing order. Unfortunately it is not possible to set up a direct debit within the deferral period. Further information on how to make such repayments will be set out in the loan agreement pack provided by Barclays Partner Finance.
What happens if I don't repay within the first six months (deferral period)?
Following the six month deferral period, Barclays Partner Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 19.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Late payment penalties and early repayment charges will apply from this point. Barclays Partner Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six month deferral period is due to elapse. Note: If you chose to spread the cost and pay monthly, interest is charged from the start of the loan, not from the start of the repayment period.
What will I receive from the finance provider (lender)?
Barclays Partner Finance will send a loan agreement pack approximately four weeks after delivery of the goods, confirming that the account has been activated and, from this point, it is possible to make repayments against the loan.
