Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Overview

  • 1Description

Pairing a versatile range of telephoto focal lengths with a fast constant maximum aperture, this 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens from Sigma is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-mount DSLRs, and provides an 80-160mm equivalent focal length range. The bright constant maximum aperture offers consistent low-light performance throughout the zoom range and also affords greater control over focus placement for shallow depth of field and selective focus applications. Complementing the versatile telephoto range is a sophisticated optical design that incorporates three F Low Dispersion elements, one Special Low Dispersion element, and one high-refractive index, high-dispersion glass element. This combination of low dispersion designs works to noticeably reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range, as well as deliver a high degree of contrast and clarity. Additionally, a Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements to reduce lens flare and ghosting to benefit working in strong lighting conditions. An unprecedented combination of focal length and speed, this 50-100mm f/1.8 lens offers a variety of favored telephoto perspectives in combination with a flexible maximum aperture.

Complementing the imaging capabilities is a refined physical construction with internal focus and zoom mechanisms to limit the overall length of the lens during use. A Hyper Sonic AF motor affords quick focusing speeds and quiet performance as well as the ability to manually override focus at any time for greater control. Also suiting quick shooting applications, the nine-blade diaphragm has been constructed from fluorine-coated polycarbonate, along with a carbon feather film for exceptionally smooth, controlled performance when photographing at high shooting speeds. Contrasting this, a tripod collar is integrated into the design, too, for greater stability when working atop a tripod or monopod.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens' is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Spanning a range of short telephoto focal lengths, this 50-100mm lens is designed for Canon EF-mount APS-C-format DSLRs, where it provides an 80-160mm equivalent focal length range.
Impressively fast f/1.8 constant maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions throughout the zoom range and also offers increased control over focus when working with selective focus techniques.
Three F Low Dispersion elements and one Special Low Dispersion element markedly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range. Additionally, one high-refractive index, high-dispersion glass element controls spherical aberrations for increased clarity and sharpness.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
An inner zoom and inner focus design limits the overall length of the lens during operation for more intuitive, controlled handling as well as faster performance.
The rounded nine-blade diaphragm is constructed from durable, fluorine-coated polycarbonate and also features a carbon feather film for smooth performance when working with fast continuous shooting rates.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. The outside of the lens barrel is also engraved with the year of production.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability.
A fixed, rotating tripod collar offers increased stability when working from a tripod and integrates 90° click stops for intuitive switching between horizontal and vertical shooting orientations.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Reviews

50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 528.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite lens! This is my first Sigma lens and I love it! The images are sharp and the lens is so much fun to shoot. Pros: Solid construction, heavy duty feel. The zoom and focus rings are extremely smooth to turn. Nice rubber grip adds to the solid feel. The lens never changes size, as you zoom or focus it all takes place internally. The images are very sharp. The button for auto/manual focus is nice and the included lens hood is great quality. Cons: This solid, rugged construction comes with a price, it is heavy, but manageable. In low light situations the autofocus does some hunting. Overall this lens is wonderful and I highly recommend it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sharp and fast... until it stopped working. This is the first lens I ever had to return to B&H. The second unit (replacement) just stopped focusing after four months of light use. I sent it to Sigma for repair under warranty. Second problem is also with the autofocus. I had to push the micro adjustment on my Canon 80D to the maximum at both ends of the zoom (18mm and 35mm) in order to get it to focus right. Any more correction and it would not have worked. If you are not familiar with the procedure for micro adjustments or your camera does not have the feature, forget about this lens. You HAVE to do it and make sure you select and de-select it every time you change lenses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING LENS FOR VIDEO!!!!! This is a very versatile lens that offers a wide variety of filming options. The zoom is fantastic and smooth, and the focus is very precise. The best part about the focus is the range is wide, so you have the ability to be quite precise. The depth of field is shallow and creates a wonderful effect when pulling focus, but it opens up when doing a long/wide shot so it is easier to get a group or large object into focus. The construction is solid and durable. This is the lens to get if you are new to shooting video. I am not a photographer, so I can not comment on that. But I would imagine you would get great results with photography as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not just hype My main use for this lens is to do video work, some landscape and street photography with a 7D MKII body. The sharpness of this lens is unbelievable, it puts my Canon L series 24-105 to shame plus has a much faster aperture! Two of the most common criticisms for this lens are its weight and autofocus issues. It isn't a light lens but that's not a deal breaker. It doesn't weigh a ton either. As far as autofocus, I mostly use manual even when doing stills. Though I did give the AF a go and had no problems, even in low lighting to nail the focus. This lens has convinced me that Sigma is a solid purchase for a much better price than comparable Canon glass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpest lens I have experienced I have realized what I have been missing since I got hold of DSLR. I had been wondering what difference does the lens make going from $ lenses to $+ lenses when every photographer in youtube points out. The photos taken from this lens is very sharp. Build quality is top notch. I was using 18-105mm Nikon earlier, i end up zooming in each photo. This Sigma 18-35mm is not a lot of zoom but makes you to move and use different perspectives which is important in photography. Long time amateur photographers having basic lens for so long and want to upgrade - this sigma 18-35 is the best. Just try it, you will love it.This lens is worth every $.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love and hate 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT GLASS! HOWEVER, BEWARE Now I want to start this review off correctly, this is a Sigma Art Lens, so, naturally, it creates stunning visuals and is a tank. It's a bit big, especially if you're putting it on any Sony (a7s, a7r, a6300, etc.) or Canon, or in my case the BMPCC. I'm using it with my Hoya UV IR 82mm filter along with my Genustech 82mm Eclipse Nd Fader Filter (Variable ND) and it seems to output some great images. Crip and I haven't noticed any vignetting with the filters on. All around, I think it's a solid piece of glass and if you are needing to zoom quickly for docs, weddings, or live events, I'd recommend using this alongside the Art 18-35mm f/1.8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for low light shots of grandchildren I bought this lens December 2014 because my Canon 50mm F1.4 was not wide enough to photograph my grandchildren inside. I purchased this lens because of the wide 18mm and the F1.8. I love this lens. It is crisp and sharp. It lets me get great shots of my grandchildren, et al, in low light. It has great bokeh. I can get a lot closer to small subjects (flowers and insects) than I can with the 50mm F1.4. It is heavy. It does not have image stabilization, but the heaviness helps me to hold it steady. (I have trouble holding the 50mm F1.4 steady because it is so light.) I love it for macro shots, low light situations, and active grandchildren!
