Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens Review
Lenstip mention about many characteristics of the Sigma 18-35mm, as the solid build, the excellent image quality, low chromatic aberrations, moderate distortion, the accurate auto-focus.
The review also feature sample shots and auto-focus tests. From the Lenstip conclusion :
You should congratulate the Sigma Corporation and their optics specialists for two reasons. Firstly for their courage – they attempted to produce an instrument no other company had tried to construct before. Such a situation a lot can be forgiven so their product didn’t have to be outstanding. Still it is obvious Sigma wasn’t contended with half measures; not only they manufactured a unique instrument but also made it optically excellent in many categories.
