·Compatible with Sigma USB DockOverviewThe Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens is a wide-angle to normal-length zoom lens that features a fast, bright constant f/1.8 maximum aperture. It is specifically designed for use with APS-C-sized sensors and provides a 35mm-equivalent focal length range of 28.8-56mm.The lens integrates four aspherical elements into its construction as well as five Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements to help minimize various aberrations and distortions throughout the zoom range as well as provide greater image sharpness and clarity. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has also been applied to lens elements to reduce surface reflections, lens flare, and ghosting to produce images with higher contrast and color fidelity. The lens barrel design is constructed from a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material that is akin to metal in texture and resistance to temperature and environmental changes while also remaining lightweight and compact. An internal focusing and zooming mechanism also helps to maintain a compact and consistent overall length and non-rotating front ring also better enables the use of circular polarizing filters. For control of focus, a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) is used to ensure fast, precise, and quiet focusing capabilities that are well suited to continuous shooting and movie recording.For updating lens firmware and fine-tuning its nuances to best suit your personal shooting, this lens is compatible with the Sigma USB Dock. The dock allows you to specify certain parameters and other settings through the Sigma Optimization Pro software, such as AF speed and focusing limitations.Art Lens LineThis lens is part of Sigma's Art line; deeming it well-suited to creative image making due to its large, constant f/1.8 maximum aperture and ability to produce aesthetic bokeh by way of a nine-blade circular diaphragm. The range of focal lengths it covers, from wide-angle to normal-length, is nicely situated for everyday and artistic shooting applications.Optimized Lens DesignFour aspherical lens elements, as well as the incorporation of five SLD glass elements, help to minimize the appearance of distortions and aberrations throughout the zoom range and provide clear imagery with enhanced sharpness. A Super Multi-Layer Coating also benefits the image quality by reducing reflections and flare and contributing to greater overall contrast and fidelity.SpecificationsFocal Length 18 - 35 mm

- The best lens for your camera- July 12, 2018
I spent a very long time researching this lens and feel terrible about wasting so much money on other junk lenses. This lens replaces all the lenses in your bag and is a lens you always leave connected to your camera. The zoom ring is very smooth and is a fixed zoom lens that does not rotate in and out like other zoom lenses. I also own the sigma 17-50 f2.8 zoom lens and this one blows it away with quality and speed. The lens is a very heavy and long piece of glass and the motor is very quiet. Feels great in your hands. I highly recommend this lens for any Nikon camera and enjoy those amazing photos you will receive.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very fast and sharp lens.- January 31, 2020
This lens is very sharp and in low light really amazing. The downside is that it doesn’t have Vibration Reduction or Sigmas Optical Stabilization. The lens is more for static photography and not for fast moving subjects in low light. By the way it is pretty heavy. Mounted on a Nikon D500 it weights over 5lbs both together. Results out weights the negatives though. Also bought this on sale. Get it since you’ll be paying close to three times the price if you go with Nikon own version. Thanks BB for your product selection and great prices.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Justice to my Nikon D7500- September 11, 2020
Great depth of field, bokeh and overall quality for the money. Highly recommend for anyone who's starting out or needs professional-grade photos. A few notable things though: 1/ Occasionally it's hard to get it in focus when using autofocus. But better than some horror stories on the internet. 2/ Heavy stuff. I'm not kidding! 3/ Not weather shield. Every lens has its pros and cons, so this is always a great choice for your crop sensor camera considering the flexibility it offers compared to DX prime lenses.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
