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

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.

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 DX-format Nikon F-mount cameras and provides a 27-52.5mm 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.

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.

pure love lens

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.

Which one is better? Nikon 17-55mm f/2.8G ED-IF DX AF-S Nikkor, or Sigma 18-35mm F/1.8 DC HSM Art ?
Asked by: Paul
I've had the 17-55 for years ... it's served me well. It does offer wider/more convenient focal range but the Sigma 18-35 is sharper than my copy of the Nikon 17-55.

Is this good with the z6 for Astrophotography ?
Asked by: Tim
Yes, it will work well for astro given the fast aperture, but it is a cropped sensor lens and the Z6 is a full frame camera. You will only be using 40% of the sensor thereby reducing image quality.
