Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 overview

  • 1Description

The Nikon F-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 27-52.5mm.

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 Nikon F is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 122.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharpest lens I have experienced I have realized what I have been missing since I got hold of DSLR. I had been wondering what difference does the lens make going from $ lenses to $+ lenses when every photographer in youtube points out. The photos taken from this lens is very sharp. Build quality is top notch. I was using 18-105mm Nikon earlier, i end up zooming in each photo. This Sigma 18-35mm is not a lot of zoom but makes you to move and use different perspectives which is important in photography. Long time amateur photographers having basic lens for so long and want to upgrade - this sigma 18-35 is the best. Just try it, you will love it.This lens is worth every $.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely amazing. This lens is probably one of the most beautiful gifts humanity has bestowed upon the world. Reccommended to me by a cousin and I got it for myself for my birthday-could not be happier! Photos taken by it are crystal clear and maintain an almost glowy pristine-ness. The manual focus is incredibly sensitive and glides seamlessly as you turn it, allowing you to get just the right shot. While it is heavy, and is difficult to tote around, I definitely prefer it over every other lens I've used. Highly reccommended, beautifully made, and amazing clarity. I'm going to take good care of this one. :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma sets the table for zooms If I had to define this latest offering in one word it'd be INSANE. The sharpness wide open (peaking at an incredible f2 - f2.8 thru the zoom range) is truly mind blowing. Fit and finish mimic the 35 f1.4 'A' and bonus use on FX from 24-35mm not to be sneezed at. Yeah, the prime's sharper at 35 but nice to have flexibility of a zoom in close quarters and ambient light. It's like getting 2 zooms in one!! AF crisp and accurate. Threw mine on the dock and tweaked it so my D2Xs would not 'suffer' from lack of fine tune ability. Absolutely breathtaking at base ISO.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An f/1.8 zoom Lens ? Amazing !! Sigma keeps rolling along with some outstanding lenses. This 18-35mm f/1.8 zoom lens is no exception. The first Art series lens designed for a DX sensor camera. The lens is by no means small but it balances nicely on my Nikon D7100 body. As with all Art series the lens is very well built with a modern cosmetic appearance. Auto focus was quick and accurate, no in camera adjustments were required. Colors were true with minimum chromatic aberrations. Both the zoom & focus rings rotated smoothly. Sigma supplies a well designed lens hood as well as a nice case with their upscale lenses. While basically a DX lens, I have used it on my Nikon D810 body at the 35 mm setting with good results(also on the DX mode from 18mm to 35mm) Well done Sigma !

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This has become my everyday lens After having this lens for about a month, it has become my standard lens for day to day shooting, and only rarely is switched out for something longer. The lens is absolutely amazing. I have it paired with a D7200 and everything works perfectly. Focuses fast and reliably even wide open. Pictures are sharp across all apertures and focal lengths. With this lens and the D7200 high ISO capability, I am able to shoot my kids, running, indoors, with low light and no flash, and still capture the scene perfectly with a fast shutter and great image quality. The 2x zoom range is limiting, but I've learned to extend that with the 1.3x crop factor, which I rarely used before, but now have learned to use regularly. If you are on the fence, buy it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens all your lower primes in one sweet package. I am not a pro but I do take lots of pictures. I was asked to do senior pictures of my Grand Daughter. I was a bit apprehensive. I mostly shoot wildlife and nature and scenery pictures. People and portrait shoot are not my forte at least thats what I thought I have a Nikon D7100 and some Nikon high f-stop specs lenses so at best they do well in good lighting conditions. I purchased the Sigma 18-35mm F/1.8 Dc Hsm Art Lens For Nikon just for the purpose of shooting her senior pictures wow was I surprised of the outcome of this lens it performs in very low light and bright light condition's with superior crisp detail. If you bought all the primes in this range the cost would be huge so this Sigma is well worth every penny I spent. I am attaching an example of very low light conditions no flash at just about sunset deep in the woods. I'm also attaching a night shot of our city bridge that crosses the Vermilion river it came out very crisp.You decide for yourself what you think. Cheers Markos!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best $ I've ever spent This lens is phenomenal. I bought it to replace my Nikkor 35mm F1.8 and other than size (which I don't mind) this lens is better in every way. the build quality is top notch and better than my other Nikkor lenses. The chromatic aberration is much improved over the Nikkor 35mm when wide open. I don't notice any distortion and the

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Excellent product. Super sharp focus. Photos taken as close ups have really nice bokek even at F 5.6. Pretty sharp at F 2.8. Abilily for really close focus. Used this lens for a macro application and it out performed a lens designed for macro. However at 35mm you can't be far from the subject as a macro. Only limited range 18-35mm is the price to pay for an amazing F 1.8 zoom. Weight is a factor if you want to travel light. Only real con experienced so far was autofocus at infinity at low F stops. For this I used manual focus and a higher F stop. High recommend this lens, its the best third party lens I have.
