Distinguished by a uniquely fast and versatile design, the Sony A-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.

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

Distinguished by a uniquely fast and versatile design, the Sony A-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 Sony A-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.

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.

can we use Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon c70 with ef adaptor ring withougt a crop ?
Asked by: Sanandeep
If you use the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon EF on the Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera (RF Lens Mount) without activating the [EF-S Lens] feature, it is possible for you to notice some slight vignetting and peripheral illumination fall-off. The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is designed for the APS-C sensor, while the Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera uses a Super35 sensor. Page 27 of the C70's instruction manual states that this camera's sensor is larger than the sensor size for which EF-S lenses are designed (APS-C). When using EF-S lenses with this camera, you may notice peripheral illumination fall-off or vignetting. Page 164 of the camera's instruction manual does state that there is a menu setting under [Camera Setup menu (CAMERA mode only) ➞ EF-S Lens] which you have the option to set to either [OFF] or [ON]. They state that if peripheral brightness fall-of or vignetting occurs when using an EF-S lens, you may set the [EF-S Lens] setting to [ON] to slightly crop the imaging area. The image is enlarged digitally by a factor of about 1.04x, affecting image quality. In most cases, leaving the [OFF] option is recommended.

What would be the focal length of this on the red Gemini?
Asked by: Levi
BEcause the RED Gemini is an S35 sensor, the focal length is the same. If you are wondering what the full frame equivalent would be, it would be roughly a 29mm-56mm.

The Rokinon 14 mm f/2.8 gets high praise from ...

The Rokinon 14 mm f/2.8 gets high praise from astrophotographers, yet the specs for this Sigma f/1.8 should make it better for stars, aurora borealis, etc. However, no mention in reviews or Q&A regarding this. Seems like it would be popular for this use with APS-C owners. Can any astrophotographers weigh in please?
Asked by: Douglas
It has more to do with the wide angle of the 14mm for “milky way” and landscape type shots than the lens Speed. I have both lenses and do astro with lenses and telescopes.

How does this lens compare with Rokinon 14 mm ...

How does this lens compare with Rokinon 14 mm f/2.8 not taking shots of the night sky, i.e., stars, Milky Way, Aurora borealis, etc.?
Asked by: Douglas
I had mine matched up to a Black Magic Design Pocket 6k. As a video lens it was incredibly lens, and I did use it shooting live fire demonstrations at gun industry events at night. Focus was very very sharp and acquisition seemed very easy. It could pic up a flying aircraft in the dark with ease. I don’t know how that compares to star gazing, but if it can pick up a help in the night sky, it would seem like a photographer could do some very nice things with it.
