An ultimate workhorse, the lens features a minimum focusing distance of just 4.8", enabling it to be used for macro-style close-up photography, and the lens is also outfitted with a rounded seven-blade diaphragm for a pleasing bokeh quality.

Standard zoom lens is designed for APS-C-format FUJIFILM X-mount cameras and provides a 35mm equivalent focal length range of 27-75mm.
Constant f/2.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Three high-precision glass-molded aspherical elements are used to help limit distortion and spherical aberrations and contribute to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing.
Super Multi-Layer Coating minimizes flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
In-camera aberration correction further eliminates optical imperfections such as distortion and vignetting.
Stepping motor with nearly silent autofocus that makes it perfectly suited to a range of photographic applications, including shooting in quiet environments, recording videos, and capturing fast-moving subjects.
Minimum focusing distance of 4.8" and a 1:2.8 maximum magnification ratio benefits working with close-up subjects.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

Sigma 18-50mm f/2.8 DC DN Contemporary Reviews

Best lest I own for my XT5!

By Isai
Rated 5 out of 5

I bought this because it makes it easy to compose shots with it. It's my first zoom lens for my fuji cameras and it's so light and sharp and being a 2.8 constant is great! I do street photography and photograph mundane things and it's perfect for it. I've used it for video too and it does very well with a lot versatility and it's very light! Definitely recommend!

Excellent zoom lens for XT-5

I bought this with my XT-5 b/c I bought body only and a prime only to realize my prime would not work indoors b/c I could not always get back far enough. This lens has been my savior as it is ultra-light weight, yet has excellent build quality and produces amazing images. The price cannot be beat compared to the Fuji version and the new XT-5 connects to it with no issues.

Excellent walk around lens for Fuji - replaced my primes

If you are not a purist and value practicality over prime perfection, this is a great lens. I swapped 3 primes (18 f2, 23 f2 and 27 f2.8) for this lens and couldn't be happier. Sure I lost a stop of light here and there, and probably some ultimate sharpness, but the practicality of having such a great choice of focal lengths with excellent image quality and contrast is well worth the trade-off. The lens is very light and balances extremely well with my Fuji X-S10. Highly recommended.

Using it on my Sony FX30 for documentaries

I'm using this lens on my Sony FX30 for making documentaries. It's the perfect combination of form, function and price. Its light weight and small size makes it easy to carry and store. Its 18-50mm focal length and sharp performance fits the vast majority of my needs when making a documentary. Its price represents very good value. I considered other lenses such as the Tamron 17-70mm (too heavy) and the Sony 24-70mm GMII (too expensive) but I've been very happy with the choice I made.

Great run and gun lens on my Sony FX30

Small, Light, fast. Great for video.

Ideal with X-pro or X-E Fuji cameras.

I am so impressed with this tiny constant f2.8 zoom. Close focusing at wide end is great, will focus closer than the lens hood. Takes up the space of a prime in the camera bag. Ideal for those times you want a zoom option and still want a small light kit. Optically it compares favorably with the Fuji !8-55 variable aperture, yet smaller and lighter. Recommended.

PHENOMENAL LENS!

Con: 1. Not weather Resistance, but has weather sealed rubber gasket. 2. No image Stabilisation.. (Not a must for a small Lens) most Camera has IBIS anyway. Pro: Lightweight & Compact. Best in it's class for the same category & price. Sharp image quality, reliable and fast enough auto focus. IMHO.. It is worth every $$$ for the Features & Performance you get from this Lens. (Fun & Super light in it's Class).
