Score 9.0/10
Good points:
For a mid range telephoto zoom this really can't be beaten. You've got to assess it on it's own terms: the image quality is obviously not going to be as good as the same range covered by two separate lenses, but as far as getting that range in one lens goes, there's no competition
Bad points:
Only thing that gets slightly annoying (which is the only reason I gave a 9/10) is that you have to lock the lens into place when you're not using it or it slides out. But this is really just an issue of getting used to it and not forgetting

Manufacturer's Description

This 13.8x superzoom lens is compatible with Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony and Sigma DSLRs that have an APS-C sized sensor or smaller. On a Canon APS-C format camera, this lens provides an angle of view equivalent to a 28.8-400mm lens on a 35mm camera and costs around £400.

This is the first lens from Sigma to sport their newly developed Thermally Stable Composite material, which professes to allow for more compact, lightweight lens designs. Even though this lens has Optical Stabilisation, it is still 160g lighter than its non-stabilised predecessor.
