Distinguished by a uniquely fast and versatile design, the Nikon F-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.
- F-Mount Lens/DX Format
- 27-52.5mm (35mm Equivalent)

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Reviews
Great Lens. Great Price.
This is a really great lens for the price.
The lens is ok. I really enjoy the aperture of 1.8, the quality amd design of the body is fantastic and Sigma put a lot of thought into the lens. However, for the price paid, I'd expect the sharpness to be significantly better. I actually get more sharpness out of my 18-55mm kit lens (about $250) than I do this lens. The auto-focus motors are quite, however, they are still on the slightly slow end (for me). I find that I'm faster in manual focus mode than the lens is. Overall, the lens is a quality piece of glass ,you will take fantastic photos with it, and it will remain in my collection for years to come. Just be aware of the issues with its image sharpness.
Sharp, Light, Fantastic
This lens is perfect as a replacement or upgrade for your kit lens.
My purchase has met my expectations so far. I'm still learning things about it and so far love it!
Good for low light.
I was going to buy a 35 mm lens then I saw this one it it more versatile. Auto focus works well.
After using the Sigma 18-35mm on the Sigma SD Quattro for a year I can say that it is outstanding. In hand it feels like a quality product, robust, weighty with smooth focusing, beautifully machined and well balanced. At 35mm wide open at f/1.8, it performs extreme well with sharpness into the far corners of the frame. By f/2.8 aperture image quality is impeccable. Excellent rendition and sharpness. Shooting at 18mm wide open at f/1.8 it is very sharp in the center with just a hint of softness in the extreme corners. By f/2 it is extremely sharp across the entire frame and corners. This is an amazing lens with superb color rendition and excellent micro-contrast. My only peeve is the position of the "AF to M" switch on the side, which is a bit stiff in changing from one position to the other. A great investment that should hold up well with an SA to L mount adapter. I don't hesitate to recommend this lens.
VERY GOOD PRICE AND SERVICE , IM START TO USE IT . THANK YOU SO MUCH
