Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Lens Overview
DPReview Gold Award September 2013
The 18-35mm isn't just sharp for a fast zoom; in terms of outright image quality, it's a match for many fast primes, even when shot wide open.

Conclusion

The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM is an extraordinary lens, offering prime-level image quality in the fastest zoom ever made for SLRs. Its 28-50mm equivalent range is a little limiting though, and inconsistent autofocus means that it can be difficult to make the most of the excellent optics when shooting at large apertures.

Reasons to buy

  • Super fast constant F1.8 maximum aperture
  • Excellent optics, even wide open
  • Fast, silent autofocus
  • Solid build quality without being over-heavy

Things to consider

  • Restricted zoom range
  • Needs detailed AF microadjustment for best results
  • Inconsistent autofocus in difficult conditions
  • Physically rather large for a standard zoom

Suggested for

Enthusiast APS-C users looking for the very best image quality available from a normal zoom, and willing to spend a bit of time setting up autofocus micro-adjustments or using live view focusing for the sharpest results.

Not suggested for

Photographers who like to travel light, or need a wide-ranging zoom.

Product Description

Style: Canon | Configuration: US Version

First wide-angle to standard zoom lens to achieve a large aperture of 1.8 Due to the very shallow depth of field (DOF) of fast glass and focus variation between the cameras, users may experience focus shift and inconsistent AF. This can be fixed by using the AF fine tune ( For Nikon System) or AF Micro Adjustment( For Canon System) in the camera’s Menu to calibrate the lens to specific cameras. Also shooting at smaller aperture values will increase the DOF which reduces “focus issues” as the result of the variations and decreases the amount of fall of (Vignetting).

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.

I love this lens. Love it, love it, love it.
I own a Canon 24-105, 70-200, a Zeiss 50mm Makro, Sigma 30mm, previously owned a Canon 24-70, Tamron 24-70, and Tokina 11-17.
This lens is amazing, built rock solid. Sharp as a prime, and wide enough that it doesn't look super distorted like my Tokina did when filming indoors.
The zoom and focus ring are buttery smooth, just like my Zeiss prime.
It works fantastic on my 550D as well.
If you shoot video - this lens is honestly a must have. I do like my Zeiss more, as it is an amazing lens, but I use this one 10x as much due to the focal length.
I wish it had IS - but hey, can't have everything.

People say this is like three primes lenses in one. It is. The f/1.8 is not a gimmick. You can shoot wide open and your images are sharp and free of chromatic distortion. It is a big, heavy lens. But it takes beautiful photographs and lets you blur out backgrounds to perfection. It is also very sharp, much sharper than any kit lens. It has some competition, but it will see a lot of time on my A77ii body.

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 did a painstaking amount of research prior to purchasing this lens back in December 2013. IAt the time, I was looking to upgrade from the mediocre kit lens that came with my Canon T3i and I went back and forth between this lens, a litany of Canon L lenses, as well as considering just buying 2 separate prime lenses. At the end of the day, I don't think I could have gone wrong with any of my choices. It's hard to go wrong with high end Primes and Canon's L series lenses at the lower focal lengths are fantastic. So why did I buy the Sigma. Certainly, the reviews from professionals were all stellar. This gave me peace of mind Second, I spent a lot of time considering how I like to shoot. I really dislike using flash, bur rather prefer fast lenses with low F-stops to allow me to shoot indoors and in low light situations without flash, when possible. So the fact that this lens allows F/1.8 was a big selling feature. The fact that it was fixed across all the focal lengths really started to sell me. Lastly, this lens covers a small, but critical zoom range: 18-35mm. Especially because I shoot on a cropped body camera, this is the range I mostly live in all the time when shooting. This lens is perfect - functing like a prime, across a critical focal range. Some people have noted that it can be a bit soft on autofocus or mis-focus when using certain camera bodies. I choice my focal points very specifically, and this has not been an issues for me. The bokeh is very good, some lenses are better, but still this lens produces great bokeh. It is also a very large and heavy lens - there is a lot of glass here. Any prospective buyer should be aware of this. For me, I have come to appreciate this heft of the lens - it is part of what I love about this lens.
