The Phoblographer reviewed the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens, the first lens for APS-C DSLRs that has constant f/1.8 over the zoom range. All other reviews I featured here on Canon Watch are in line with this one: all praise the excellent build quality, the great sharpness, the fact that this is an outstanding lens. The Phoblographer’s findings weren’t different. Read more after the break.

They tested the Sigma using a Canon Rebel SL1/EOS 100D. While I strongly suggest you have a look at the review (which comes with plenty of sample images), here are some excerpts:

  • Absolutely nothing about this lens feels cheap
  • [auto-focus is] super fast and super accurate
  • Perhaps the absolute best concert photography lens that anyone can get their hands on
  • […] no complaints about the sharpness of this lens at all
  • […] very lifelike color rendition
  • We’ve got absolutely nothing but respect and love for the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 DC HSM. If you’re an APS-C DSLR user, this should be the lens that is a high priority item on your list to get
