Jaron Schneider over at fstoppers reviewed the latest addition to Sigma’s “ART” line-up, the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens, the world’s first zoom lens for APS-C DSLRs that has a constant f/1.8 over the zoom range. And at a really competitive price, $799/€999. They used a Canon EOS 60D for the test. Some excerpts from Jaron’s review:

  • […] this lens is beautiful […] a gorgeous blend of metal and rubber with only a few plastic parts
  • […] the autofocus works […] very well in daylight. It’s fast and, generally speaking, very accurate
  • At night, the lens is a bit less accurate, but it correctly focused (in nearly pure darkness) ten out of thirteen times
  • Chromatic aberration is extremely well controlled in this lens
  • Flaring is decently controlled at most apertures
  • […] sharp at all focal lengths and apertures
  • For Sigma’s first run at a previously never before seen lens concept, this is a rousing success.
  • This is so far Sigma’s best APS-C only lens, and it’s the best by leaps and bounds
