Sigma's 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM has won the TIPA 2012 Best Entry Level Lens award and the APO MACRO 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM has received the TIPA 2012 Best Expert DSLR Lens Award.

The TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) panel said: "The Sigma 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 II DC OS HSM offers users of a DSLR camera with APS-C size sensor one lens that will most likely cover all their needs. In practical use, the lens offers the 35mm equivalent of 27-300mm coverage, making it a highly versatile lens that is enhanced by Sigma's original Optical Stabilizer function and HSM movement. In the view of TIPA members, the Sigma makes possible the use of this one lens for a wide range of different subjects, offering photographers a compact and highly competent optical tool for landscape, portrait and even wildlife photography."

Commenting on the APO MACRO 180mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM lens, the panel said: "This lens is the first 180mm image stabilized macro in the world with a reproduction ratio of 1:1 and a maximum aperture of F2.8. It also benefits from the Sigma's original Optical Stabilizer function that allows a gain of about 4 stops. Three special FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass lenses ensure exceptional correction of chromatic aberrations. Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces "flare" and ghosting, and creates sharp, contrasted images even when fully wide open."
