Photography Bay reviewed the awesome Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens for APS-C DSLRs, one of Sigma’s recent gems. This lens gets one positive review after the other, and that’s not surprising: Sigma made an outstanding lens, and it has a constant f/1.8 over the zoom range. Considering the price of the Sigma ($799) this is for sure one of the most interesting lenses you can get for your Canon APS-C DSLR.
Sample pics and more after the break.
- The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens is truly a revolutionary lens. Sigma has achieved something no other manufacture has achieved to date.
- The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens becomes more like a bag of prime lenses than a do-it-all zoom lens
- The thing about the Sigma f/1.8 is that the image quality backs up the bag-o-primes analogy.
- A f/1.8 aperture zoom at this price cannot be ignored
