The Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM Lens is the first wide-angle to zoom lens (as of 22nd April 2013) to achieve a maximum aperture of f1.8 throughout the entire zoom range. The Sigma 18-35mm is a standard zoom lens that offers a focal range equivalent to 27-52.5mm in the 35m format. The 9 blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive round bokeh at large-aperture settings, while the HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures a silent, high-speed AF. This lens incorporates a wide glass molded aspherical lens with Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass to compensate for aberrations and curvature at the widest angle. Its new Global Vision design works with its compatibility with the Sigma USB dock for further customisation. Sigma’s DC lenses are designed for cropped sensors and the image circle on this lens is designed to match the smaller size of the image sensor on small-frame sensor cameras (DX-format on Nikon and EF-S on Canon). The lens is ideal for landscapes, portraits, still life, snap shots, casual, and close-ups.

Comments about Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM Lens - Canon Fit:
wow this thing is amazing.I used to think the 70-200 2.8L was great, can't wait till Sigma release one nowit's quiet, sharp, built like a tank with L-like control feel.I wouldn't be surprised if it was made for the 70D as the AF is beautiful in all modes, who'd have though AF could be artistic!(some people might complain that it's heavy and limited range but you forget this as soon as you look through it)Well done Sigma.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A must-have lens for APS-C camera users
About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
A review after using seven weeks.I was very happy with the performance of this lens from day one. As almost all reviews available on the Internet say, this lens produces superb image quality. Particularly its wide aperture of F1.8 can create a fantastic bokeh (shallow DoF), which was not available previously with any zoom lenses for APS-C format. This lens is all about excellent bokeh and a tremendously high sharpness.Yes, it is a bit heavy and long and does not have an optical stabilizer, but its image quality cancels out all these cons.This is a lens to be used for its tremendously high image quality, not necessality for its fast performance in a low light situation. Remember it does not have OS.It's a must-have lens for APS-C camera users.

As the lens is 12cm long I had to buy a telephoto-length camera bag to carry it attached to my 7D. That said, whatever you have to do to carry this lens around, do it - it is simply amazing! The picture quality gets better the wider the aperture, which is very rare. There is little or no distortion of any kind at any focal length. There is little or no CA even wide-open. The highlights in the picture are really well-controlled. The build quality is fantastic and the focus and zoom wheels are nicely damped. Given how ground-breaking this lens is, it actually didn't need to be this good. The fact that it is this good has to make it one of the best lenses ever made.

This is a great lens.It looks brilliant, with special attention paid to its understated design and slick manufacture to enhance its image as a quality product.The build quality is very strong. The actions of zooming and focusing are incredibly smooth and satisfying to use.There are minial buttons or switches. Simplicity in design again.The images are very sharp.The autofocus is quick, though not as quick as my Canon prime (non-zoom) lenses.The item is quite big and heavy. It feels more 'reassuringly heavy' rather than a bad weight though.The lens length remains the same at all levels of zoom, with all the changes happening internally. This is neat and saves dirt and dust getting into the moving parts and destroying the smooth motion.It comes with a 3-year warranty from Sigma, though this may only be a limited offer... I'm not sure.The 1.8 aperture is superb for a zoom lens and means it's very versatile and capable in low-light. Coupled with the zoom ability as well, this hasn't been taken off my 60D since I bought it.I'm very happy with my purchase! Enjoy.
