Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Overview

Distinguished by a uniquely fast and versatile design, the Canon EF-mount Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM is an Art-series zoom, covering wide-angle to normal focal lengths. Separating itself from the pack, this zoom features an exceedingly bright f/1.8 constant maximum aperture, which suits its use in difficult lighting conditions and offers impressive depth of field control throughout the zoom range. The optical design incorporates a series of SLD and aspherical elements, which help to achieve high clarity and sharpness by suppressing various aberrations, color fringing, and distortion.

Balancing the optical merits, this 18-35mm also sports an advanced Hyper Sonic Motor, along with an internal focusing design, to promote fast, quiet, and precise autofocus performance.

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.
Wide-to-normal zoom is designed for APS-C-format Canon EF-mount cameras and provides a 28.8-56mm equivalent focal length range.
Impressively bright constant f/1.8 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Five Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements are featured in the optical design and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Four aspherical elements are used to help limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contribute to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
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.
Integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), along with an internal focusing system, realizes quick and quiet autofocus, 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.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. Additionally, a brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

All in one art lens

All-purpose, legendary lens

I've used this lens for almost 7 years starting with my GH4/Metabones combo to today's 6K pros. The image you get is beautiful and it helps counter any issues with low-light. I can't think of more to say that hasn't already been said. It's a legend and has been one of the best selling lenses for a reason.

Great Lens

It is a great lens for crop sensor cameras. I use it on my NikonD5300. Produces good quality pictures in low light with the 1.8 aperture. The autofocus is quiet. Highly Recommend it. The weight is what you expect of a lens of this caliber.

The image quality out of this lens is amazing, great focal range, great bokeh and a nice, constant wide aperture. This is a very good lens for covering events, protest, direct actions, etc. It is bulky and heavy, but that's just a limitation of physics.

Pictures are crisp !!

Yes, this is just a kit lens variant but the pictures are sharper and quiet handy. Does weigh a bit but the accessories that come with it makes it handy carry around.

No for videographers, weighty, incompatible follow focus dev

By Mauricio

I used the lens in a BMPpro 6k. It is a weighty lens for its low zoom range. The use of the lens in a Gimbal makes it too heavy with all the set (DJI RS 2 Gimbal). You can move through the gimbal the focus, but if you buy the follow focus(DJI Ronin 3D Focus System) you won't be able to use it, it does not work. The main disadvantage of this lens is you can not use it with follow focus devices. The focus ring does not have a final stop. When the focus reaches the limits, the ring can move and move. This makes it impossible to use it with devices like (Tilta Tiltaing FF-T06 Mini Follow Focus) and be accurate. The use of the rings for focus and zoom are heavy, so you must put more pressure to move them, causing camera movements. If you plan to use autoexposure on the f stops, it becomes a noisy lens; you can hear the ring moving in the recordings. The quality image is ok, but I dont find it superior to any other standard lens.

Use it on 7d, and now the R7

I shoot stills and this lens is razor sharp on my R7. If you shoot video don't use a shotgun mic because the auto-focus sounds like a Geiger counter.

One of the best lens ever!

question

I have Canon 60D with 18-200mm lens. Will Sigma 18-35mm good choice for next lens to produce better quality for Day / Night time photography ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it will, the overall optical quality of this lens is better than those used in super-zooms such as the 18-200mm lens, and with a wide aperture of f1.8, it is ideal for use in low light situations.

question

i know this is for crop sensor. but will it work on full frame without a huge black edge around the image? this lens seems amazing!!
Asked by: Anonymous
From most all reviews I have seen, typically, everyone does state that the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon is an amazing lens as you mention. However, as the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens for Canon is designed for APS-C cameras, it should not be used on a full-frame camera. Trying to do so may damage the reflexing mirror in the camera or the rear element of the lens, or both, and as it is designed for the smaller APS-C sensor, there would be a black border around the edge of the frame where the larger sensor is looking at the outer edge of the lens' housing.

I just brought the sigma 18/35 mm EF art and im going to upgrade from APSC system to canon 5D mark 4. Will this lens fit or do i have to buy an adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens will be able to mount to the 5D mark IV, however this lens is designed for the APS-C sensor so it will not cover the full frame sensor of the 5D resulting in a severe vignette on the image. This can be alleviated by cropping the image in post to remove the vignette but you will not be taking full advantage of your new camera. I would recommend using full frame lenses(EF) on the 5D and using this lens only on APS-C cameras.

question

I want to adapt this lens to my Sony fs5. Would it make more sense to order the EF mount version and use either the MC-11 or Metabones Mark4? OR.. Order it in the Sony A mount and then use Sony's A to E mount adapter? I believe Sony's native A mount of this lens won't go directly onto the fs5.
Asked by: John
You will get similar results whether you go Canon EF to Sony E or Sony A to Sony E adaptation. But, it is best to trust the results of the Sony to Sony functionality (eliminating a 3rd party product), so the Sony A mount to E mount adapter is recommended for the FS5.

question

Is there any performance information about using this lens on a APS-H sensor camera such as the Canon 1D IV
Asked by: Anonymous
This lens is equivalent to a Canon EF-S type lens, which is optimized for the APS-C format sensor cameras only, and should not be used with an APS-H or full-frame model DSLR.

Will this Sigma lens work with Canon R5 with Canon RF to EF adapter? If so will image be cropped for 1.6x magnification? Will image be sharp? Will auto focus face and eye detection work fast and reliably?
Asked by: Casey
The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon EF will fit and autofocus on the Canon EOS R5 with Canon RF to EF adapter. Because this lens is designed for cropped sensor cameras the camera will go into cropped sensor mode. So there will be 1.6x magnification, the file will be small and the image quality will not be as good as the camera could produce.
