Focus is fast and silent.

Even shooting with it opened all the way up, it was easy to get nice sharp, vivid pictures of the Nat Pack with good bokeh.

This is a review I expect to update as I continue to use my brand new Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 lens. I am not a super-technical pixel-peeper kind of guy but I am a pretty experienced photographer and I'm writing this with a similar audience in mind. I bought this lens because I do a lot of event photography, especially dance (doing volunteer work for a ballet company) and while I've done pretty well with my trusty Canon 24-70mm F2.8 lens, I've felt a bit (sometimes more than a bit) limited when I photograph fast moving dance sequences in the low-light environments stage and dance very often are. That's because the 24-70mm F2.8 simply doesn't do as well on an EOS 7D with its 1.6x (APS-C) crop that it does on a full-frame like my EOS 5D Mark III.

That's what's one of the very nice things about this lens. You get the same performance on the crop body with it that you get with the 24-70mm on the full-frame. And that's important because my crop body with its 8 frame per second burst capability is the best camera for catching action (as opposed to the significantly smaller burst capability of the 5D Mark III).

07/17/2013:

So let's start with the first impressions:

1. The price on this lens is great. If it had been Canon or Nikon, I would have expected paying far more than what Sigma is charging for a game-changer lens.

2. The build quality is very nice. Holding the lens in my hands, it feels solid and well-constructed.

3. Although the lens is not a macro, I was impressed by how close it could focus...I actually was able to get good, sharp images of my parrot's face when I focused in below the ten inches that the specifications say it can do.

Style Name: Canon
There are several in depth reviews available so I just wanted to add a few impressions after using this lens compared to to my Canon 17-55mm f2.8 IS lens since the two lenses might be competing for a spot in someone's camera bag.

Advantages of the 18-35mm:
Both are sharp lenses but the 18-35mm may have the edge. While the 17-55mm has IS, I prefer the wider aperture since it is also helpful for moving subjects and can provide shallower depth of field. The build quality of the 18-35mm is awesome and I love that the zoom is all internal. I worry sometimes when carrying my 17-55mm from a strap and it is swinging around with the zoom extended.

Advantages of the 17-55mm:
The 18-35mm auto focus is fast and quiet but seems to take a fraction of a second longer to lock than my 17-55mm, especially in low light conditions. Focus is accurate though. I have been using the Sigma 30mm f1.4 and compared to that lens, the 18-35mm lens seems to have more consistent results. Obviously the range on the 17-55mm is better and when comparing the two I miss the longer end for close-ups of people since even 35mm can look weird if you get too close.

Overall this is a great lens, and for the price it is fantastic. Like most any lens, it still has a few trade offs though, so after all that, I can't say which lens I would prefer if I had to pick. I can say however that my 30mm f1.4 will be gone soon. This lens stands up well to the prime lenses in the 28-35mm range and for 24mm and below there is no competition.

I was lucky enough to purchase this lens during the first batch of shipments. I immediately put it to use for both still and video use with Canon EOS cameras. I honestly could not be more impressed with a lens. It does everything well, including fast accurate focusing, smooth manual focus and zoom. The build quality is outstanding. Even higher than most L series that I own, and very close to the Zeiss ZE line. It has a pleasing bokeh, and minimal vignetting at all focal lengths. During my last four wedding shoots, it is the only lens I have used during the entire reception. Please Note: this lens is designed for APS-C, or cropped sensor camera bodies.
It is not compatible with full frame sensor bodies.

Style Name: Canon Verified Purchase
The image quality is exceptional and the lens is sharp even wide open. There's some blue fringing but nothing that can't be easily fixed in RAW processing, but I am just nitpicking now. The build is exceptional - the zoom and focus rings are buttery smooth and nothing like I've experienced yet. It's smoother than some L series I've handled. The HSM is super quiet and completely inaudible in normal noise level environment. One of the things that I was really impressed with was that this lens ships with its own case and hood. Even the case is well made and appears better than the case Canon ships with the L series. Canon stands to learn a lot on that front alone - it's ridiculous that Canon doesn't ship hoods with Non- L series lenses and charges an additional $50-100 depending on the lens for the hood.

The minimum working length is around 12 cm making it fairly useful even for macro photography. The 9 bladed aperture gives excellent round bokeh. All in all, this could be an excellent walk around lens suited for equally well for Landscapes, Reporting, or Portraits. As far as a crop sensor goes, it really doesn't get better than this as far as lens to price ratio goes. FYI, DxO Mark ranked this as the best crop sensor lens they have reviewed yet.

I've had this lens for less than a week now and these are my initial impressions. I will update this review after I've used it for a bit longer.
