Excerpt: Very clean images, even open at 1.8. The auto-focus works well, although in low light it does have some difficulty. My only complaint is that the zoom ring needs a bit more force to turn it than any other lens I've used, and that makes quick zooming in/out just a teeny bit harder/slower than I'd like it. Apart from that, I'd highly recommend this lens.
Excerpt: This lens is magnific. Very fast AF, big colors, maximum luminosity. I bought this lens because its great aperture... the bokeh is very nice. I recomend this lens. Sigma made a great job in this lens.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: You've found the Night Gallery with this one! In fact I even think that the picture quality overall even surpasses Sigma's 2.8 DG Series, which includes a faster focus in my opinion! And, that's a "good thing" for action shots! I never saw such clarity and performance from a Sigma lens like this one! It's almost like putting on a pair of night vision goggles, as well as delivering remarkable bokeh for day-time close-ups without any effort!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I needed a low-light-friendly lens to go with my Canon 70D for an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World. I originally purchased the Canon 50mm f1.4, but discovered that the focal length was too tight for many uses (i.e. dinner table, wide-angle shots). Side note: I should have been more thoughtful about the 1.6 crop factor before purchasing the 50mm for this purpose. I read many reviews of the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 and decided this was the best lens for this use.
Pros: Image quality, Rugged, Silent focus, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I waited (impatiently) while Sigma cranked out the Canon and Nikon versions, finally releasing the Pentax mount in July. I'm no doubt among the first Pentax owners to get a copy, and I will start by saying it's an even better lens than I'd hoped, based on many reviews, (owner and professional), that I'd read about the other mounts.<br /><br />Let's cover the bad stuff first, because it won't take long: it's heavy.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast, Quiet focus, Rugged, Strong Construction, Super Fast Zoom, Super sharp
Excerpt: Para estrenar este bombon le tome unas fotos a mi hija de un año, el enfoque es muy rapido para una bebe tan inquieta, la NITIDEZ EXCELENTE, mi primera impresión en camara buena clidad en color y contraste aberrasiones minimas en contra luz con F1.8. El diseño y calidad de materiales son excelentes y ergonomicamente muy agradable, Un peso que brinda buen soporte, Solo no me gusto que el anillo de enfoque gira contrario a la linea de Nikon.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
