The brand new Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens may be the only lens you ever need to buy for your APS-C camera. According to the DxOmark’s findings the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 beats all other APS-C zoom lenses, Zeiss full-frame primes, and Canon L lenses too.
You can do your own lens comparison here. There is not much to say here (check previous Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 reviews), just that the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 is an awesome performer, and with a price tag of $799 this is the lens any owner of an APS-C DSLR should have. Quoting DxOMark:
Although it is unlikely a user would buy several full-frame wide-angle lenses specifically for an APS-C format camera, the fact remains that the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM is an outstanding performer optically.
