Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | A Lens
The first and fastest of its kind
Truly a revolutionary product, the Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 DC HSM is the first wide-angle to standard zoom lens to achieve a large aperture of 1.8. Designed specifically for APS-C sized sensors, the Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 translates to 27mm-52.5mm on 35mm camera. Tapping into Sigma’s long history of lens innovations, the 18-35mm 1.8 DC HSM incorporates a wide glass molded aspherical lens with Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass to compensate for aberrations and curvature at the widest angle. Internal focusing and zooming allows for more usability and functionality. The 18-35mm is ideal for landscapes, portraits, still life, snap shots, casual, and close-ups and the Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures smooth, fast and accurate autofocusing. The use of Thermally Composite Material (TSC) reduces size and weight but increases the lens durability. Its new Global Vision design works with its compatibility with the Sigma USB dock for further customization. A 9 blade rounded diaphragm also creates beautiful background blur. The Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 DC HSM is a new benchmark in photographic history and a must have for every camera bag.
USB Dock Compatibility
Sigma has developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

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).

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.
Summery: This is a perfect all around lens that works for everything unless you need telephoto. Only con is that it's kind of heavy.
Ok, but if you're on this page you already know what's the appeal of this lens, you just want to know if it's worth it. My verdict is: it is worth it. The build quality is great, as is its visual appearance. It's a professional-looking lens. And the feel in your hands is amazing. The zoom and focus rings are smooth to handle, and with a very nice grip thanks to the rubberized surface. The image quality is very nice, comparable to prime lenses they say. I don't have enough experience to say it myself, but I can say the image quality is superb. It's sharp, and the bokeh at f1.8 is really nice. That was one of the reasons I wanted a wide aperture lens, the other being shooting in low light conditions, which I already did and was amazing. A friend saw my pictures and thought I had taken a tripod with me to achieve the level of exposure I got from a night landscape.
My only reservation when buying it was the fact that there are some worrying reviews out there of people that has had the bad luck to get a copy of this lens that presents some issues with auto-focus. Fortunately that was not my case, but I certainly wouldn't dismiss those concerns. If you can, buy this at store where you can try the exact lens you'll be taking home. In any case, this issue appears to be uncommon.
Finally, only buy this lens (or any lens for that matter) if you know it provides the features you look for the most in your photography endeavors. If you shoot mostly at a wide angle setting, and you're craving for more aperture, this lens is for you. Even more so if you're a crop-sensor person (this lens is crop-sensor specific) and you're not planning to go full-frame anytime soon. Also consider some possible inconveniences of the lens before purchasing it, like the fact that is not small, and is not lightweight.
Solid as a rock!
Little to no lens flares
Not a big fan of the end cap. Doesn't go on very easily.
Some may say the price, but I think the price is justified
No Vibration compensation
