Showing 1-10 of 17
Amazing IQ with some issues

Excerpt: I really love the look and feel of the lense as well as the IQ. The issues that I am having are that focusing was not perfect with my t1i out of the box and I am needing to calibrate it using the usb dock I purchased with the lense.
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I've had two copies of this lens thanks to B&H's generous exchange and returns policy. Neither could autofocus effectively and the second copy had very jittery and slow live view focussing problems.
Pros: Good Color Saturation, Good contrast, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: The built quality is great. It's silent and sharp. What bothers me is how slow the autofocus is. So slow I can't use it for a real job where fast AF is a must. Also it's bulky and heavy...not comfortable to carry around all day on your neck for sure. Thinking of returning it and get a real pro lens.
Excerpt: When the stars all align and there's a lot of light, some shots will be tac sharp; otherwise, you will experience softness... Inconsistent AF; noisy and slow-hunting at times. Disappointed with this Art lens offering.
Excerpt: This is a follow up to my enthusiastic review dated 3/31/14. After a few weeks of use, the lens began to have focus issues, enough to the point that it could not focus on an area that was clearly defined, with easy to discern colors.
The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 From an Astrophotographer's Perspective

Summary: NOTE: This is a review for the Nikon mount of this lens mounted on a Nikon D7000, from an astrophotographer's perspective. The lens was rented from a local camera store, and I confirmed with them that I was the first customer to rent it.
Not as good as other reviews mentioned. Perhaps, I got a bad copy...

Summary: I was very excited when I was informed that the lens was available and I would get it in a few days. This excitement quickly turned into disappointment after taking a few shots with this lens. The first shot is very blurry. It is so bad up to the point that it is like out of focus.
Summary: Das Bild auf der Nikon d5200 erscheint mir durch das Objektiv sehr scharf und verzeichnungsfrei. Vorsllem im Videobereich wirkt der Kontrast stark angehoben. Das kann aber auch an der Kamera liegen. Was mich aber irritiert hat: Die Linse beschlug von innen und das ohne besonderen Themperaturwechsel.
