Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Canon EF-mount Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens is a wide-angle to normal-length zoom 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.

    Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 reviews

    18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 288.
    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 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 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 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 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!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent lens I haven't noticed any issues with this lens. I use it with my T4 and mostly for portrait shots. I am able to get sharp images with nice blurry backgrounds - bokeh. I used to use a 17-55mm 2.8 and loved that lens but I think this one may be a little sharper. It just seems a little crisper but I could be wrong. The 17-55mm gave me great bokeh too if that is what you are looking for but the background on the 18-35mm Sigma seem a little sharper. This lens is also great for low light. My son's karate pictures came out great and the lighting sucks in the studio. And some of the pictures I took in Chicago at night look great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Focusing issues 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma Stepped up its game-Catch up Canon Sigma has really stepped up on their lenses in my opinion. This lens is built like a tank (heavy but I like that) and performs extremely well from what I can tell so far. AF is fast and quiet, I'm not really sure why people complain so much about the zoom being backwards - who cares - the zoom is smooth and has a perfect amount of resistance unlike many canon L zooms I've owned. If this lens was twice as expensive I still would give it 5 stars and would find it hard for anyone to show something wrong with it but the price point made is a no-brainer for myself being on a crop. - Of course it were twice as expensive my wife wouldn't have let me buy it... Read the online reviews - from what I can tell, they are spot on - this lens is great!
