  • Conclusion: Credit must be given to Sigma for taking the plunge and being the first to pull off this optical feat. Despite being a touch heavy - especially for a lens intended for smaller APS-C format D-SLRs - the 18-35mm impressed us in almost all areas of testing. So, if you're in the market for a well-built zoom that offers impressive image quality and great control for shallow depth-of-field effects, it's a great choice - provided you can stomach the £650 pricetag.
