The Sigma 18-35mm T2 Cine High-Speed Zoom Lens with a PL mount and with focus scales marked in feet provides an image circle that covers Super 35mm-sized sensors. It features a maximum T-stop of 2, and the aperture does not ramp over the zoom range. It shares common lens gear positions with the other lens in the Sigma High-Speed Zoom lineup, which makes for rapid lens changes.

The 9-bladed iris provides round out-of-focus highlights for a natural-looking bokeh. The lens barrel features 180° of rotation from close focus to infinity, the zoom barrel rotates 160°, and the clickless iris ring features 60° of rotation. All three lens control rings are geared with cine-standard 0.8 Mod gears, and the focus scale is marked in feet. The front of the lens is 95mm in diameter with a removable 1/4"-20 support foot that helps support the lens with the aid of a 1/4"-20 rod-mounted lens support (not included).

Color Balance

All the lenses in the lineup are designed to comply with SIGMA's CCI standard simplifying when intercutting between lenses.

Dustproof and Splashproof Design

Sharing the same dustproof and splashproof construction as the SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM|Sports, each ring and mount is sealed to prevent water and dust from entering.

All-Metal Body Construction

The lens body is made completely of metal to stand up to the rigors of the production day.

Lens Markings

The main lens markings are in luminous paint for easy visibility in low light situations. The intermediate markings are laser-engraved for durability. The focus and zoom markings are readable from either side of the lens.

Lens Front

The lens features a 95mm front diameter for compatibility with a wide variety of matte boxes and incorporates an 82mm front filter thread.

Lens Gears

All three lens gears are standard 0.8 Mod and feature a damper that eliminates metallic sounds when you reach the end of the lens travel.

Support Foot

The lens includes a removable support foot.

Sigma 18-35mm T2.0 (ft) Reviews

Fantastic lens for documentary shooters

By Alex
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2019-07-01

I work in documentary and TV, and use this lens on the FS7 with the PL to E-mount adapter. I find it to be an excellent addition to my kit, and I use it frequently for b-roll, as well as following subjects around through changing environments. Being able to ride the aperture in real time (going from outside to inside, or in cloudy weather) is an invaluable quality for documentary shooting. Interestingly, using this with the PL to E-Mount adapter on the FS7, the minimum focusing distance decreases to about 4 inches. Yes, you read that right. I don't know the physics behind it, but something is going with with the adapter to allow it to close-focus substantially more than advertised. This has been extremely useful! Image quality is excellent. It doesn't have the personality as the big name prime lenses; I'd characterize it as a clean, neutral looking image. But for the versatility you get, it has no competitor. For those complaining that this is just a stills lens I'd ask them to consider that the cinema version has proper focus marks, gears, declicked aperture, and build quality that will last a lifetime. Overall this is a fantastic lens, and I'd recommend it for anyone looking to up their game without spending a fortune on a set of primes, or that is working in doc/TV and wants to simplify their kit.

This Cine lens is legendary

Anyone who uses a lot of cine glass knows that the 18-35mm Sigma Cine is legendary for into film makers. Please ignore the other 2 star review as this person clearly doesn't understand the value of lenses. The lack of LDS makes this lens actually "affordable", and speaking of which, is considered CHEAP for the quality of the optics and build. A lot of people are ordering entire era of primes and zooms for RED cameras (ourselves included) for a reason. Sigma Cine lenses are arguably the best value for the superb quality in the industry right now.

Photo lens with Cinema gears

1. Noticeable focus breath . 2 . None Lens Data System ( LDS ) that now very need for post - production works with augmented reality 3. Too overpriced ( " cinema " version with lens gear ) Version for photo with EF ( about $700 ) mount much better for use with RED . Really .

question

Can we shim this lens?
Asked by: Kevin
Like any lens, this lens has the ability to be shimmed so that it may be properly collimated. Unlike some lenses that are available with user changeable mounts, this lens is not sold with the understanding that the user (and not a qualified technician) will do their own collimating. If you feel confident to do so, it is your lens, go ahead. Just be aware such action will probably void any warranty.
