Excerpt: This lens is absolutely beautiful! The construction is amazing, the build quality is unreal, the glass is superb, the images you get with this lens are truly like no other. I'm currently using this on my Panasonic GH4 W/metabones speedbooster and it's hands down my favorite lens. Wildly shallow DOP and amazing looking bokeh. I love the fact that if you're like a foot off, you'll lose focus meaning this should be used primarily for closeups or super wide landscape shots.
Pros: Constant aperture, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Good in low-light, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Nítido, increíblemente luminoso y un rico anillo de enfoque!

Summary: Venía usando el Tamron 17-50 2.8 y realmente es un paso adelante pasar a este Sigma. Lo probé en su versión para Nikon con la cámara de un amigo y quedé encantado y pedí el mío para mi Canon 7D. Lo más impresionante de este lente es su nitidez, es bastante notable en 1.8 y ya de arriba de 2.8 es sensacional. Me atrevería a decir que es incluso más nítido que el Canon 24-70 2.8 I y costando casi la mitad.
Summary: I give 5 star because of the performance and the price range. it might be too early to give it a rating but I'm confidents I have a good copy. I will update my reviews later if needed. I have my eyes on this Art Lenses long before I decided to get the 18-35mm for my canon 7d. I got mine in the store at the big photo show and I have plenty of time to test it first out of the box before buying the lens. I bought the first lens I was testing.
Summary: Shooting at f1.8 allows for the photographic artist to use amazingly small depth of fields. Beautiful sharp results. Way heavy which speaks to the quality of the tube and amount of glass contained inside. The only thing I don't like is that the focus and zoom rings are in the "wrong" place for the lens I'm used to over the years.
My general use lens at 1.8 through range, how can ya do better?

Summary: I do not know the answer to that. This lens was selected for its DXO Mark ratings and specs for the intended application. Again quality is there completely. This is my 2nd lens along with the 50 - 150 f 2.8 to run on the DX7100 so I am spoiled with top choice things at this point. As a nonprofessional I expect to learn and do a lot with this package this summer.
Summary: I did so much research on this lens, and after purchasing it i wasn't disappointed. I sold my canon 24-105L F4 to buy this lens and i don't regret it, it was the best move i could have done since i have purchased my camera.
Summary: Never was a huge fan of off camera brands but the capabilities of the lens are second to none. The price is also spot on. This lens has been an absolutely awesome lens to shoot with. The camera I use is the Canon 60d. This has become my go to lens for shooting indoors and also close up shots of my kids. After using this lens it has defiantly made me a fan of the Sigma art lens line. I am already looking at my next Sigma art lens.
Summary: I own a 70D and purchased this to essentially replace the 18-35mm IS II. Sigma's lens of course murders the kit lens. It does indeed feel like a handful of wide primes, in optical quality and over all weight. As others have commented, it's a heavy bastard, a drastic departure from the kit lens. But I have grown accustomed to the heft. Even on hikes and lugging it through the streets I am not beat by it's weight, it's certainly noticeable though.
