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. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied, too, which controls lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy. 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.
- EF-Mount Lens/APS-C Format
- 28.8-56mm (35mm Equivalent)

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Reviews
Worth the hype - somewhat noisy AF
This lens is pretty incredible - especially for the price. It is somehow still tack sharp wide open at 1.8. Of course, for a zoom lens, the range is incredibly limited but it is effectively a combo of about 6-7 primes (say, 18mm, 21mm, 24mm, 27mm, 30mm, 32mm, and 35mm) all in one. Given that it's only for crop sensor, it would be nice to extend the wider end even by 1 mm (every mm counts), but given how amazing the image quality is, I can't complain. I'll just say if you're trying to throw together a lens kit I would advise getting something wider also (say a 14mm prime or a Tokina 11-16 or even the Canon 10-18 STM). In terms of autofocus, to be honest, I don't use it very often, but I remember during video the ticking autofocus motor was annoying and interfered with the camera-mounted shotgun mic. Of course, there's vignetting (notably at its widest) and color fringing but that's par for the course with any lens. Lightroom does away with that anyway so it's never a problem for me personally. Highly highly recommended, this is one case where a product is actually worth the hype!
the best investment
All in one art 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!
This lens quality look extremely amazing, just want to know if I need an adapter when combining it with the Sony A6300
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.
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.
I bought this lens primarily to use with my Canon 80D for landscape photography, but so far have mostly used it for some pet portrait and Christmas photography. It's mostly very sharp, with great bokeh. It can be tough to get focus on closeups though - obviously if you use it a f1.8 you have a pretty narrow field to work with, and there's no IS to help if you're hand-held. But I've had some good success with it in my limited uses so far, and am looking forward to seeing how it works out once I get to use it outdoors a bit more.
BEST LENS SO FAR
This is the best lense that i have ever buy. Tye photos are very sharp and clean and i like that the fish eye view on the photo is very minimum when you edit the photo. SO FAR THE BEST LENSE THAT I EVER BOUGHT. EVERY PHOTOGRAPHER DEFINITELY NEED THIS LENSE ON THEY BACKPACK. Thanks B&H for having Sigma products on they store.
