Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC lens For Nikon D40

Sigma has announced a new superzoom lens specifically for Nikon owners. The £329.99 Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC lens features a built-in autofocus motor (similar to Nikon's own AF-S design) allowing the lens to focus with cameras like the D40 and D40X.

The 18-200mm lens sports two Special Low Distortion (SLD) glass elements and two hybrid spherical lens elements. These are said to keep aberrations in check, while a new flare-reducing coating helps keep ghosting to a mild spooking.

All the while, the new Sigma 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 DC lens is designed to be small and light; just 75.6mm long at rest and weighing just 395g. It also features a zoom lock to prevent the lens body from 'creeping' during transportation.
