From DxOMark conclusion :
After the critical acclaim of the full-frame 35mm f1.4 HSM, the firm achieved a similar level of success with the intriguing APS-C only 18-35mm f1.8. The Nikon mount version reviewed here replicates the same high performance of the earlier Canon mount version, and while the same minor criticisms apply regarding the slightly short zoom range (equivalent to 27-52mm) and weight, the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM A remains an outstanding example of what’s achievable with modern lens designs. And at $799, it’s reasonably accessible in price as well.
