By on

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM is the world’s first lens offering an aperture of f1.8 throughout the zoom range for APS-C cameras. The Photographyreview has posted a full review for the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens.

The review comes with much more information and sample images. Samples shot with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 can be seen here.

This another good review that confirms the outstanding performance of the lens. The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM is standard zoom-lens for digital single lens reflex cameras with APS-C size sensors.



Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Review

From the Photographyreview review:

The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 zoom lens is wonderful. The optics are about as good as it gets, the bokeh is creamy delicious, the build is great, and the big f/1.8 aperture puts this lens in a class of its own. Honestly, there’s really nothing to complain about. The only issue is coming to terms with the short zoom range and making sure you have another lens available in case you need something longer. Oh yeah – I can’t forget about the price. Remember how I said that DxOMark rated the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 zoom higher than the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II when both were mounted on a crop-sensor camera? Now consider the Sigma’s $799 MSRP. That’s about one-third the price of the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L, less than half the price of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II USM […] It’s also going to perform better on your crop-sensor DSLR than any of those bigger, more expensive lenses. So if you want it, buy it. You won’t regret it.
