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.

    I've been using this lens on a RED Scarlet and it's performance is stunning. It is tack sharp corner to corner with little CA; even when it is wide open at f1.8.
    In my testing I find it to parafocal (maintains focus while changing the zoom) and it does not breath when focusing. Those two qualities make this lens compete favorably against $20K cinema zooms. The lens has a solid and substantial feel; the focus and zoom rings are incredibly smooth and well damped.
    In addition the zoom and focus mechanisms are completely internal, The length of the lens does not change while zooming, and the front element does not turn while focusing. This make it very easy to use with a matte box. It also allows you to forgo a matte box and use less expensive screw-in special effect filters.
    This lens can easily replace any prime lens in its focal-length range. The low light performance is great, and you can get incredibly shallow DOF
    For me this lens is a great investment, it it easily replaces $3K worth of prime lenses for my kit.

    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.

      When the stars all align and there's a lot of light, some shots will be tac sharp; otherwise, you will experience softness... Inconsistent AF; noisy and slow-hunting at times. Disappointed with this Art lens offering.

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

        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.

            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.

                    I like this lens. I bought this lens to because I tend to shoot lots of indoor with almost no light and at night time too and I like it. I used to use my 50mm 1.8 canon, but that one broke on me, so I decided to get this lens. Therefore, I can get great wide angle shots as well as a lot of close up since is f1.8 for those great bokeh. The built quality for this lens is amazing. Great aluminum along with great focus and zoom ring. The one thing I wish it was is less heavy. The lens is really heavy so it makes it hard to use it in various gear, but not impossible. I never thought I was going to buy another brand of lenses than Canon, but Sigma really put it up there. Specially since it come with a lens hood and a carrying case with it. That is a plus. I never understood what is the dock station for it. It didn't came with it, but it works great. Art Class is the new L Glass.

                    I have been using this lens for video on my canon 60d and the quality is just amaizing.
                    1. The less is very sharp. no soft or blury images
                    2. fast shot a few night shoot and the quality is just amaizing
                    3. its like 17 prime lenses at the price of one. really awsome

                    I love this lens! I use it with my Cannon 70D (cropped sensor) and it works great as a wideangle for beginners. Every time I hit the shutter I'm amazed at the images produced.

                    This is a perfect lens to upgrade from a kit lens, or to be your first lens. I believe the sharpness is as good as a prime lens at 35mm, and it is perfect for video work with the short zoom range.

                      Camera Body: Canon T3i

                      This is a great lens. Really feels like a top quality product. However, there's a bit too much hype surrounding this lens that I think is not quite deserving, considering the range of other quality lenses. To be honest, I was expecting to be blown away when I switched out my kit lens for this one...but after testing it I think we all need to settle ourselves down and look at the facts. The f1.8 is great, yes, but I immediately felt limited by the focal range. Testing in somewhat low light, I found myself not using 1.8 much anyway, to maximize sharpness and practical depth of field. I almost wished I had gotten Canon's 17-55mm f2.8 instead, which is going for nearly the same price now. I figured since I have a 50mm f1.8 I wouldn't need to cover that. But I was wrong...as an amateaur, this lens showed me how versatility is often times more valuable when in a variable, real life situation. In my test cases, I had missed shots I wanted that I could have gotten if I had the extra length.

                      Autofocus issues: basically can't focus if you're in extreme low light or low contrast situations. Also, I found autofocusing in live view mode (one shot) to be very slow and not very practical in low light. I'm sure this is normal, (it might also be my camera) but I guess I expected a little too much.

                      Weight issues: may or may not be an issue. for me, will definitely take getting used to the weight, definitely not practical for wearing camera around neck for longer periods of time.

                      Good things; It looks SEXY. Really cool and professional looking lens. Aside from issue above, autofocus is generally very reliable, fast, and silent. At the moment I can't say much about image quality--I've come to understand that image quality is but one small factor to making a great shot and the difference with my other lenses was again, not mind blowing. But, the image quality is in fact good and colors/contrast look great.

                      Last words: I agree with some comments I've heard before--this is a lens that suggest specialty from the focal range, extraordinary speed, and image quality, however the truth is that 18-35 is a very standard length, neither wider enough or long enough to actually be a "specialty" lens. Quickly, this lens becomes just a high quality but fairly limited standard lens.

                      Purchased the Sigma 18-35 1.8 based upon glowing reviews. I was not disappointed. This is a perfect companion to my Canon 70-200 2.8 IS II. A bit on the heavy side, but the quality is top notch and the images crisp, clear and tack-sharp.
