Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM | Art — Introducing a newlarge-aperture APS-C format standard zoom lens. Taking on the challenge of creating the world’s first* wide-aperture lens to offer an aperture of F1.8 throughout the zoom range, SIGMA has succeeded in creating a zoom lens that offers the same high optical performance of a fixed focal length lens. These outstanding performance characteristics are especially apparent in an APS-C format camera, since it has a slightly greater depth of focus than a full-frame camera. This is a revolutionary lens that overturns preconceptions while expanding the range of photographic expression. Get yours from Parallel Imported today!

Features: 

This lens features the latest SIGMA technologies to offer F1.8 throughout the zoom range and ultimate performance
Exemplifying SIGMA’s design know-how and advanced production technologies, this innovative lens offers the highest level of craftsmanship. Thanks to its hard-earned knowledge of lens design and advanced lens manufacturing techniques, SIGMA has succeeded in creating a lens that offers F1.8 throughout the zoom range, as well as exceptional image quality at wide open aperture.

Rounded diaphragm
When photographing with point light sources such as electric lights or reflections on a body of water in the background, the rounded 9-blade diaphragm helps produce an attractive bokeh effect—even at large-aperture settings.

Advanced flexibility and convenience expand photographic freedom
Covering the angles of view offered by multiple large-aperture, fixed focal length lenses, this lens combines advanced flexibility with uncompromising performance. 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM allows the photographer to use a shutter speed that is one stop faster, reducing the influence of camera shake. In addition, the shallower depth of field makes possible a beautiful bokeh effect in the background, expanding photographic creativity. From wide open to standard apertures, this lens is highly flexible, covering the angles of view offered by multiple large-aperture, fixed focal length lenses.

The finest in materials, usability and functionality
A refined, integrated design made with the photographer in mind. All lenses in SIGMA’s new Art line come with a hood with a high-quality rubberized connector and feature a newly designed lens cap and AF/MF switch, and are designed for intuitive use and superior functionality. Inside, HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) delivers high AF speed and extremely quiet performance. An enhanced algorithm offers even smoother automatic focusing. Full-time manual focus override is another key feature that leaves the artistic touches in the photographer’s hands. The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction.

HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor)
HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) delivers high AF speed and extremely quiet performance. An optimized algorithm offers even smoother automatic focusing, and full-time manual focus override is another key feature.

Incorporating an Inner Focus system
The lens incorporates a rear focus system that prevents focus-dependent variation in aberration, making high-level image quality possible throughout the entire image. With their unchanging barrel length, these lenses also enhance balance and stability for the photographer. Furthermore, since the front of the lens does not rotate, polarizing filters can be used with extra convenience.

Flare and ghosting reduction
From an early stage in the lens design process, flare and ghosting have been measured to establish an optical design resistant to strong incident light sources such as backlighting. SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.

High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.
