Canon-Mount Super Zoom Lens Flare Comparison

Super Zoom Lens Maximum Focal Length Comparison

The above images were shot from a stationary camera with each lens set to the maximum focal length. They are listed from left to right in the order they were taken. Interesting is that the Sigma 18-250 frames a lower view of the scene.

The difference between 200mm and 250/270mm is noticeable, but not dramatic when looking at the overall range covered by these lenses.
