Pairing a useful range of telephoto focal lengths with an especially fast design, this Canon EF-mount Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM is an Art-series zoom mixing impressive versatility with advanced optics. The bright f/1.8 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. The optical design incorporates a series of low dispersion and high-refractive index elements, which help to achieve high clarity and sharpness by suppressing various aberrations, color fringing, and distortion. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied, too, which controls lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. Balancing the optical merits, this 50-100mm also sports an advanced Hyper Sonic Motor, along with an internal focusing and zoom design, to promote fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance. Additionally, a tripod collar is integrated into the lens's design for greater stability when working atop a tripod or monopod.

Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Reviews
Nice and SHARP for the work I do
The SHARP, CLINICAL nature of this lens along with the 18-35 is perfect for the work I do. Although the permanently-attached foot can be a challenge to work around, I designed and 3D printed a set if Follow Focus and Zoom Rings that allow me to use my Tilta Nucleus-M system with this lens, and it works swimmingly!
Amazing lens........worth every penny!
My first sigma lens is this 50-100mm F1.8 Art series. I can tell you that I could not be happier with the quality of this lens. Put it on my Canon 80D. I have only used it a couple times and have gotten some stunning photos. It is heavy but it is worth it. You will not be disappointed with this beast!
Really solid lens!
I'm a filmmaker, and I have a 18-35 and this 50-100 as my standard kit for interview/b-roll shoots. Lovely image, looks very similar to their cine versions of these lenses. Pairs well with pro mist. Sharp, even wide open. Only downside is that this one has noticeable focus breathing. Not a huge issue for me, but something to consider.
Bought this to replace my Canon Nifty Fifty. The picture quality at 50mm is much better and add the zoom ability, I'm very happy. I give it a 4 only because the lack of image stabilization.
Really just a great lens. 95% as good as primes. Perfect for S35.
Its a winning combo.
I read a lot of reviews and watched a lot of videos before biting the bullet on this lens. I paired it with my 90d which sat in the bag while the 6d got all the work. This lens is the boost this body needed and will definitely be using it a lot more. I purchased this lens to be a permanent fixture on this body and a 50mm sigma art for the 6d as a permanent fixture. Oh I have another 6d for my other canon lenses. The colors and sharpness are great and getting good results with little post processing. Still playing with it but imagine the more I do, the more refined the results.
Best indoor basketball Lens from cropped format camaras
My Canon EOS R10 recognizes the lens so that helps too (it works just fine with my RF to EF adaptor) . If you have a crop sensor camera and want to take great photos of any court games basketball or volleyball etc this lens is great. You don't need image stabilization the f1.8 lets you keep a fast shutter rate whether players are stopped or running. Focus is fast. You don't have to step down I typically use f1.8 1/800 iso 4000. f2.0 is just a touch sharper. No light loss in the corners at all, none. I have not used my canon prime 50mm or 100mm since purchasing this lens. Now it is a bit heavy like a typical telephoto zoom lens but controls are smooth. The zoom range is just right 50mm is perfect for free through photos showing the player and the basket.
