Product Highlights
  • Aperture Range: f/1.8-16
  • Fast Constant Maximum Aperture
  • Designed for APS-C-Sized Sensors
  • 35mm Equivalent Focal Length: 28.8-56mm
  • Hyper Sonic AF Motor
  • Internal Focusing and Zoom Design
  • Four Aspherical & 5 SLD Glass Elements
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating
  • Canon EF Lens Mount
  • Compatible with Sigma USB Dock

The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon is a wide-angle to normal-length zoom lens that features a fast, bright constant f/1.8 maximum aperture. It is specifically designed for use with APS-C-sized sensors and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8-56mm.

The lens integrates four aspherical elements into its construction as well as five Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements to help minimize various aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range as well as provide greater image sharpness and clarity. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting to produce images with higher contrast and color fidelity. The lens barrel design is constructed from a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material that is akin to metal in texture and resistance to temperature and environmental changes while also remaining lightweight and compact. An internal focusing and zooming mechanism also helps to maintain a compact and consistent overall length and non-rotating front ring also better enables the use of circular polarizing filters. For control of focus, a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) is used to ensure fast, precise, and quiet focusing capabilities that are well suited to continuous shooting and movie recording.

For updating lens firmware and fine-tuning its nuances to best suit your personal shooting, this lens is compatible with the Sigma USB Dock. The dock allows you to specify certain parameters and other settings through the Sigma Optimization Pro software, such as AF speed and focusing limitations.

Art Lens Line
This lens is part of Sigma's Art line; deeming it well-suited to creative image making due to its large, constant f/1.8 maximum aperture and ability to produce aesthetic bokeh by way of a nine-blade circular diaphragm. The range of focal lengths it covers, from wide-angle to normal-length, is nicely situated for everyday and artistic shooting applications.
Optimized Lens Design
Four aspherical lens elements, as well as the incorporation of five SLD glass elements, help to minimize the appearance of distortions and aberrations throughout the zoom range and provide clear imagery with enhanced sharpness. A Super Multi-Layer Coating also benefits the image quality by reducing reflections and flare and contributing to greater overall contrast and fidelity.
Hyper Sonic AF Motor
The Hyper Sonic Motor provides fast, quiet, and smooth auto focusing that is well-suited for use with video applications. This AF motor can also be manually overridden at any time by rotating the focusing ring, giving you the ability to fine-tune image sharpness through manual focusing.
USB Dock
Compatible with Sigma's USB Dock and Sigma Optimization Pro software for fine-tuning your lens' performance, updating its firmware, and better suiting it to your needs.
Other Lens Features
  • Constructed using a TSC compound material, this lens is lightweight while also exhibiting notable durability and resistance to environmental changes.
  • An internal focusing and zooming mechanism helps to maintain a consistent overall lens length and a non-rotating front ring facilitates more efficient use of circular polarizers.

    Excellent lens for 70D (so far)

    I needed a low-light-friendly lens to go with my Canon 70D for an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. I originally purchased the Canon 50mm f1.4, but discovered that the focal length was too tight for many uses (i.e. dinner table, wide-angle shots). Side note: I should have been more thoughtful about the 1.6 crop factor before purchasing the 50mm for this purpose.
    I read many reviews of the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and decided this was the best lens for this use. I was a little apprehensive after hearing about some of the autofocus issues, particularly with the Canon 70D. But I read enough positive comments that I thought it was worth a try. I noticed that the Canon 50mm f1.4 also struggled to focus correctly when shooting wide open. I don't have experience with other cameras, but I presume that's to be expected for a crop-sensor with apertures wider than 2.8.
    I've had the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 for only a week, but it seems to perform EXACTLY as expected. Image Quality is top-notch and I don't seem to have any more shots with missed focus than I do with the Canon 50mm f1.4.
    I bought the USB Dock just in case the focus needs to be adjusted (how cool is that?), and I may do a little bit of tweaking after I use it more.
    Overall, this is a fantastic lens that seems like it will give even some of Canon's "L" lenses a run for their money.
    Yes, the focal length is ONLY 18-35. I don't see that as a negative: it's clearly advertised as such. Yes, it's heavy (810g/1.75lbs): good glass and (some) metal is heavier than cheap glass and (mostly) plastic. There is NO perfect lens - there are always tradeoffs! I think Sigma nailed it with this lens and I think anyone with reasonable expectations will be very pleased with it!

    I'll plan to post a follow-up after living with it a bit longer. But my initial impressions are very favorable!

    I have to give props to B&H - this lens was(is?) out of stock everywhere I looked. It was initially backordered, but B&H was able to ship within 1 week of when I placed my order. Well done!!

    Focusing issues

    My copy had serious focusing issues. Used it on my 70d. Even in bright daylight, the lens hunted and ultimately couldn't focus properly where the kit 18-135 stm lens had no problem. I didn't try it with USB dock, but if this is requisite to calibrating the lens for normal use, Sigma should have included it with the lens. Otherwise Sigma should have calibrated it at the factory prior to shipping so it works out of the box. DPreview also saw focusing problems. One star for excellent build quality, but if a lens can't focus, it's a heavy, well built paperweight.

    Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon:

    I had to max out my Canon 70d's micro AF adjustment for horrible front focusing, it hits about 80% of the time now, unacceptable. I feel this lens has a hard time focusing, HOWEVER, if everyone can correct for it in their cameras or with Sigma's dock, then it's clear, they send them out either un calibrated or worse, de-calibrated, forcing you to buy their dock to fix the problem. One of those two MUST be true, how sad.It does however focus well in live-view, but right now only the 70D has decent live-view AF. It is tack sharp then, but it's slower to focus and uses way more battery power, albeit harder to pick where you want to focus.So, you'd think this lens would be great for wedding video (what i bough it for) WRONG! It does what OLD Sigma lenses do, and ZOOMS in the opposite direction! Need to zoom out? go ahead and try it, OPS you just zoomed in, yeah that'll look professional in your video! I had to put a cheat sheet sticker on my tripod head so I don't mess it up again. ALL my other lenses are Canon, this is impossible for me to get used to. If sigma is going to sell the most of one mount, don't you think they'd match the zoom direction? This is horrible! But most brands zoom the Sigma way, so they were CHEAP and didn't switch it.This lens is for people who do not shoot demanding work. This lens is not for professional photography (I guess i'm keeping my 5D3) nor is it for professional video.If you are a hobbyist, great, buy this lens. It is very sharp if you can get it focused.Oh yeah, it's heavy. Now, just skip over that and tell yourself you don't care if it's heavy just like I did. Let me re-phrase... it's much heaver than you will expect it to be. THEREFORE... won't work on my glidcam 1000, like my 70d + 10-18mm lens (great combo in good light btw).Being heavy might help you keep it stable.-1 star for backward zoom (some people will take 5 off for this)-1 star for un correctable slowish, inaccurate AF-1 star for shipping lenses that aren't calibrated to sell the dock to people+1 star for sharpness+1 star for build quality, the zoom is so smooth, BUT does make it hard to zoom quickly if needed.I bought it elsewhere (paid more too) cause BH was out of stock. I think they are going to get a return. I'll do what so many others have done and toss the DSLR for a large sensor video camera for professional video.In this review i mention professional work. I'm a CPA M-F, but what i mean by professional is someone who makes money shooting. I only pull in $15k/yr but still, I consider that professional work. Sure there are much more costly options out there, but for even semi pro work this lens does not cut it. Their 35 f1.4 is killer, however. Will buy the 50mm soon too.

    Amazing lens

    By Reekshow

    from Sacramento, CA

    Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon:

    Amazing lens. Sold my canon 5d mk III and bought a 70d just so I could use this lens. If you love strong contrast and poppy colors then you will love this lens. Works amazing wide open. Super creamy bokeh. You will love this lens. If I had to find a negative it would be the size and weight of this lens - not very conducive for stuffing in your backpack and traveling.

      Very clean images, even open at 1.8. The auto-focus works well, although in low light it does have some difficulty. My only complaint is that the zoom ring needs a bit more force to turn it than any other lens I've used, and that makes quick zooming in/out just a teeny bit harder/slower than I'd like it. Apart from that, I'd highly recommend this lens.

        Works great on C100

        By Sherwin L

        Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon:

        I waited about a year before purchasing this lens. I heard there were focusing issues and such so I wanted to wait until they straighten out the kinks. I wanted this lens for my C100 to get that wider angle and fast aperture. Here are my findings after I finished a narrative shoot with it last week.

        1. It's sharp wide open at f/1.8. Great!
        2. While some people say it's pretty hefty, I say it's lighter than my Canon 24-70mm f/2.8(version 1).
        3. I like the smooth focusing
        4. My C100 has the upgraded dual pixel AF. When I first got the lens on, it worked great. Very quiet dual pixel AF. On the day of the shoot, it wouldn't auto focus. Even after turning the C100 on and off. When I got home, I removed the lens and then back on again and the dual pixel AF started working again on the C100. Very weird. It's happened only once so far.

        Overall, I am satisfied with the quality that I'm getting with this lens on the C100 for the price. It has a very short focal length, though, so I still find myself switching to the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 (version 1) to get that extra reach when I need it.

            This is a follow up to my enthusiastic review dated 3/31/14. After a few weeks of use, the lens began to have focus issues, enough to the point that it could not focus on an area that was clearly defined, with easy to discern colors. The lens took to "hunting" back and forth searching for a focal point. I purchased the USB Dock to try and calibrate it myself, but that task was tedious for a lens that should come ready to use. I contacted Sigma and received confusing info (the website lacked easy to follow instructions for returns and tracking). Regardless, I sent the lens back for calibration.Sigma calibrated the lens and so far I have not had any issues. However, I'm not convinced that I will not have problems in the past. To spend $[*] and receive a lens that required calibration was bad enough. To find that I had to send the lens back at my expense, without verification of receipt or repair added to the insult. Though the lens appears to be working well at this point, I cannot recommend one put $[*] on the line.

              Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon:

              This is the first fairly expensive non-Canon lens I've purchased (aside from an 8mm manual focus), and I do not regret it at all so far. It's on par with L-series lenses and is an amazing lens for APS-C cameras. Search through image gallerys and video reviews for proof, but this lens is a killer - it really is like having a set a primes all in one lens. Easily replaced my 35mm and haven't touched my 28mm since this lens.

              Onto the negatives...
              It's heavy. If you're the type of person that wants a lightweight zoom or prime, look elsewhere. It feels like an L-series lens in terms of weight. Straping this around your neck for a day wouldn't be a lot of fun, but that's probably not why you're looking at this lens.
              Rear cap falls off a lot - look at buying a Canon one or borrow from another lens, they work a lot better.

              Zoom range... I knew what I was buying when I bought this lens, but IF it were an 18-50mm or 18-55mm then it simply would be a 5-star rating. It's a fantastic lens, but the zoom range is somewhat limiting, especially with video use. It's great on the wide end, but you're still going to need your 8mm and/or 10-22mm (or 10-18mm) for the ultra wide and likely coverage in the 24-70mm range.

              I'm hoping this art trend continues. I am seriously looking at the 24-105mm from Sigma and other art lenses at this point. They are fantastic in both build and image quality.

              My favorite lens of my kit so far. Planning on getting the Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART lens since I'm really digging this lens.

                This lens has seriously replaced our prime lenses between 18 and 35. We use in on a RED Epic for filming so the fact that it does not cover full frame is not a problem for us as we shoot in S35 format. It's sharp and has a beautiful overall look even wide open at 1.8

                  Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon:

                  I tried purchasing this lens from my local camera dealer. It has been out of stock for months. Everywhere I looked online, out of stock. I went to B&H's site, and lo and behold...IN STOCK! I placed my order and within two days, my new Sigma 18-35mm was hand delivered to me.

                  This lens exemplifies what Sigma is all about. Immediately, when the lens came out of its box and hit my hands, I knew I had something of significance. I already own a Sigma, 50mm prime lens, so I knew what to expect. There's a great feeling when you know you're going to be right, and you ARE!

                  The craftsmanship of this lens is everything the hype has portrayed. The smoothness and quietness of the motor are unbelievable. I needed a lens that would cover me from 18-35 because I do a great deal of landscape photography, and much of it is night or low light shooting. With this lens, I can get those shots my old Canon kit lens just couldn't get.

                  Thanks Sigma! Keep up the awesomeness that your company exemplifies.

                  Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon:

                  I was on the fence for a long time about buying this lens for my 60D. I feared autofocus issues above all else. I figured I'd try my luck, and if there was an issue, I'd just return it, no harm done.

                  Well, I haven't had to return it. The autofocus is as accurate as my Canon USM lenses. Combine that with this lens's unbelievable sharpness and you get amazing images. It's an 18, 24, 28, and 35mm f1.8 in one, so don't let me hear you complain about the weight- it weighs less than carrying four lenses!

                        What can I say? I love the built quality, the image it produces, best zoom lens in low light situation, great for wedding, awesome for video. I love this lens. However, I hate the inconsistency of its focusing with my 7D. I am not sure, but I wonder it's because of the contrasty nature of this lens, the camera thinks its in focus when it's not. That's just my theory. Its focusing works more consistently when your subject is closer, which is 95% of the situations I would use this lens for. If you, however, are having difficult time with its auto-focus, then use it in liveview mode, so far I have got 100% correct focus with lens in liveview mode.

                        I bought this because people were raving about the Sigma 18-35mm making it comparable to the Canon. I first saw Sigma at WPPI 2014 in Las Vegas. I was impressed and began researching. I have a 70D and was a bit timid since reviews ragged on the autofocus but found it to be precise and sharp. It is a heavy lens but the quality so far is beyond what I had expected having prior experience with older Sigma models. I would buy again.
