Combining the brightness and sharpness of a prime lens with the convenience of a zoom, the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon Mount is nothing short of revolutionary. Designed for APS-C sensor cameras, the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art is the world’s first wide-angle to standard zoom able to open as wide as f/1.8 – more than twice as bright as flagship lenses with similar specifications. A highly versatile 27mm-52.5mm focal length (full frame equivalent) makes this lens perfect for landscape, travel, wedding, event, portrait and close-up photography, as well as video.
Like all lenses in Sigma’s acclaimed Art series, the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM for Canon mount achieves the highest levels of image quality. Sophisticated optics ensure outstanding sharpness throughout the lens’ zoom range, even with its widest aperture, and a rounded aperture design produces gorgeous background blur. Aspherical lens elements of Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass keep aberrations at a minimum. Meanwhile Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces ghosting and flare, delivering maximum sharpness and contrast even when you’re shooting towards the light.
Enjoy exceptionally fast, precise, smooth and quiet autofocus thanks to the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens’ Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM). This feature makes it easier than ever to capture fleeting or candid moments and steady, professional-looking video footage. Full-time manual focus override lets you take full focusing control when the situation or your intentions call for it.
The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art lens’ remarkable performance is matched by its superb usability. With a mount made of brass and a barrel constructed from Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, the lens is highly durable yet compact and lightweight. Internal focusing and zooming enhances both image quality and handling, and gives you the option to use polarising filters without worrying about the filter rotating. Connect the lens to the Sigma USB dock for Canon EF-mount lenses (sold separately) for easy firmware updates and calibrations.
