Nice Zoom

  • Excerpt: Hi, I bought this together with the GH4 and Metabones Speedbooster. This is my first DSLR dedicated to video. This lens is solid and smooth in manual settings. Haven't shot much with it yet, but it seems like I'll be using it quite a bit. It's fairly fast aperature makes it ideal for the GH4. I do primarily corporate video work.

Versatile and Sharp

LeftFoot Media, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use this lens daily for my work as a video producer. After watching dozens of reviews, demos etc. I decided to add the Sigma 18-35mm to the arsenal. This is my go-to lens when filming indoors. This lens performs very well under low-light capturing sharp, crisp footage consistently. The build quality is exceptional. The first thing you notice when you unbox this product is how sturdy and heavy the lens is.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Rugged, Strong Construction

Like a charm!

  • Excerpt: Amazing build quality, amazing sharpness, overall amazing lens. I believe I haven't seen a lens sharper than this one and I used many different L-lenses. f1.8 throughout the whole zoom range is something that particularly becomes handy while filming. This combined with the very sturdy zoom ring gives you silky smooth zooming in video mode. I haven't seen a single con about this lens after several days of intense usage.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Go Get It!

  • Excerpt: I use this on GH4 paired with Metabones. It works like champ when you turn focus peaking on. The only thing I wish Sigma could improve is the focal length. I know I know. Im just greedy. But I wouldn't hesitate to buy 18-55 f1.8 if Sigma is pushing the Art series to the limit.
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Amazing Lens

  • Excerpt: The build quality on this is amazing... Understand it isnt full frame... The video from this has been incredible... The still shots have made it one of my best lens purchases ever... The fact that nothing protrudes from the lens when zooming is awesome... I waited a year to buy this lens and would do it again... anytime...

I'm in love

  • Excerpt: This lense is BEAST! I have not had an oppertunity to put it through the ringer...yet, but what test shots and video that I have done in the two weeks I've had it, I can say a couple of things with surety: 1) it trumps my pentax 50mm 1.8 (chromatic abb is next to none), and 2) I haven't had any of the focusing issues that I've read about in some reviews. In fact, it is spot on tack sharp, and this too trumps my 50.

It's sharp, heavy, and awesome!

Scott the photographer, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: 2013 Lens of the Year Award...x3. That's pretty interesting. The very first of its kind zoom with a constant f/1.8 aperture. That's pretty amazing, groundbreaking even. First off, this lens is as sharp as you think it can be; however, with that sharpness comes a warning. Don't use this lens with anything but a superior auto-focus system. Nothing lower than a D7000.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy
