Pros: Price + sharpness/clarity + constant 2.8 min aperture + construction + ease of use.

Cons: None so far.

Opinion: I replaced my Canon 18-55 kit lens with the Sigma. I've been extremely pleased with the lens and the results I'm getting with it. Images have been sharp and clear. I got the lens new from Amazon for $290 USD. I haven't had any problems with focusing or usability of the lens with my Canon 80D. Photos and videos both look great. The construction of the lens is very good. I'm sure this will be my "go-to" lens for a long time.

Pros: Value for money, only paid Euro250 direct from the Australian Sigma importer with 24 months warranty. Silent AF on my copy, Fairly quick AF. Light weight with optical stabilization makes it easy to handle. Handy zoom range. Constant F2.8. Build quality good for the money.

Cons: Nothing for me.

Opinion: Great bang for you buck lens. Formerly owned the Sigma 18-35mm Art and I'd say this is almost as sharp but easier to handle due to the light weight and optical stabilization. Selling this lens as I am also selling my APS-C camera. I can only hope to find a similar quality and great value FX lens like this. Will be missed. From my copy I can thoroughly recommend this lens.

Pros: Ta sharpness, construction, MAF speed, stabilization, value for money

Cons: For what it costs, no one.

Opinion: If you wanted to make a comparison with the world of football, paraphrasing even a well-known Ligabue song, I would call this lens an excellent "median": honest, versatile, well done, you mount it, shots and he always gives you a good result ... I had bought it for a use that -- at least reading a lot of reviews -- did little to suit what I would need, "a short zoom" to use under basketball basket, MAF's speed seemed not to be adequate, instead - as usual, I haven't put too much weight on what I read around and when I can, I prefer to buy and try firsthand... - it was enough to mount it on the 7D2 and "as if by enchantment" little Sigma became a splinter, keeping the focus on gusts of 5-7 frames, without any problem. It is already sharp at 2.8, the stabilizer works excellently, the blurry is pleasant although it is not at the levels of the "Hawthorn" IS II (but in my opinion higher than that of the 40 pancakes) and then the construction, even if there is a lot of plastic, is really beautiful, well above the purchase price, the barrel flows smoothly but with the right resistance, so much so that the 17mm lock button I think is superfluous, the lampshed fits perfectly even in the rest position and finally, no problem of F/B focus, consequently no need for fine adjustment (and it is already the third Sigma that does not require "fine af adjustment", I think that in Sigma they have changed something in the "quality control"...)

Pros: Sharpness, brightness, construction, value for money.

Cons: Autofocus ghiera.

Opinion: I have owned it for almost a year now and I am very happy with the purchase. It is built well and in hand by a beautiful feeling of solidity and in the packaging there is a very useful semi-rigid handbag for transport. The sharpness is great at full opening, which is great news for taking photos with poor light and getting photos with a nice blur. The stabilizer is effective and not by any kind of problem. In the end it became the lens I use most often. The only flaw I found him is the MaF ring, which has a really, really small run and in a position that too often ends up under the fingers getting stuck and thus preventing the operation of the Af.

Pros: In my opinion, the best "short zoom" there is for Canon APS-C

Cons: Nothing, except, a little, the lampshade that hooks not immediately.

Opinion: It weighs the right because it is well stabilized. The button that locks the focal excursion at 17mm is very useful when you're walking around. Given the considerable versatility, you will find that you will shoot more than half of your photos with this goal. At least that's what happens to me. Personally, I consider it superior to the much more expensive rival Canon 17-55, even from the crucial point of view of sharpness.
