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.
As many reviews on the internet and youtube might tell you, this lens is super sharp. I never thought I would want to take photos at the widest aperture of f/1.8 but I was so enthralled at how sharp it was wide open. It was matched up to my Canon 70D and it performed well past my expectations. Previously I was stuck with using my Canon 17-55mm f/2.8, which is still a very good lens, but this Sigma trumps any photo I've taken when it comes to clarity, contrast, and sharpness.
The only true gripes I might have about this lens, is the short focal range and the speed of the auto focus. My Canon 70D has an APS-C crop sensor, making the 18-35mm range more in lines with 28-56mm (1.6x crop factor). That's still a good focal range for landscape and portrait photography, but too short to use at something like a concert or for sports. The autofocus is super smooth and very quite, but the focus is a little slow compared to my Canon 17-55mm f/2.8. Not that big of a gripe, but when you're trying to capture a moment, every millisecond counts. Also, it doesn't have image stabilization like my Canon, so videography would be a little bit more difficult unless you had a glide or camera stabilizer of some sort.
All in all, I made the purchase and I couldn't be happier. Sigma made a believer out of me and I'll continue to purchase from them as long as the quality and performance is there. If you have a crop sensor camera, don't hesitate. Buy this lens pronto!
