I love zooms and i love walk around super zooms even more but 16-300, i dont think they cant pull that, at least not like what they are claiming now, at least IQ wise.
but you never know, new sigma 18-200 have one of the best zooms according to dxomark.

what do you guys think?

I think it is interesting. Small, weather resistant, very useful zoom range. I want a FF version.

They have a 28-300 version for FF being released also. Same small lightweight package. Light light light.

they do make some good lenses but I don't think they will be able to pull this off and offer the quality they are marketing. I think it's probably usable from 16-150, then 150-250ish will be softer and 250-300 will be really soft.

For a second, I thought this was a fill frame lens. That would be awesome. I would buy a 16-200 full frame super zoom if that was the best they can do.

If I didn't, already, have the 18-270 it might be interesting for a family travel lens; but the difference between 270 and 300 just won't be that great, I'd imagine. These lenses are not rockstars in the grand scheme, but for the niche that they fill they're really great to have in the arsenal.

Oh, that's good to know, although the main problem with FF superzooms for me is the 28mm which rules them all out.

I don't buy DSLR to use a superzoom, same as fitting a 14 inch wheel on a Mustang.

The 18-270 is junk, this can only be worse.

You're totally right. I should clarify that I only want one for the kid because I don't want him changing lenses and he doesn't know the difference between a quality lens and a junk lens.

When he brings his pictures from my camera into Lightroom, he sets saturation to 80 and clarity to 100 and contrast to 90 anyway, so if the image wasn't trash before he took the photo, it's trash after post.

One can extend that argument to any zoom. If you're after the absolute best quality, forego even zooms like 24-70mm II and 70-200mm II and just buy primes.

LOLbw!

Once the Tammy 18-270 saved my day when I was asked to do an engagements-sortie to Paris and it was pooring all day long. My equipment (lens + Rebel) was soaking but survived the trip and the pictures came out pretty well I must add. No way I'd risc the 5d with 85LII in that situation!!!

I wouldn't mind a one-lens option for travel or even hiking. As long as it goes wide enough and isn't too heavy I would love to see a decent lens made. The 28-300mm Canon isn't something I would like because I feel 28mm just isn't wide enough. It is also push-pull, and has out dated IS, two more things I would like upgraded/changed.


5D4 or 6D2..... Waiting to find out which I buy | 8-15L |24-70mm f/4L IS | 24L II | 40mm pancake | 100L IS | 70-200mm f/2.8L IS mk2 | 400mm f/4 DO IS

This,
DSLR for some of us is not portrait, or wedding photography, some of us need the reach, and if we all can afford L zooms then there will be no need for lens like these, i'm cheap and i'm proud of it! why spend more when you can do the same with less!

Haha good thing we aren't taking comments to the extremes then! I happen to think that my Canon 70-200 f/2.8 IS II is better image quality than my Sigma 85mm, thank you very much!
