Pros: Very high sharpness, brightness, excellent blurry

Cons: Autofocus with Canon SLR, weight, lack of tropicalization

Opinion: I write this review after a few years of use on Canon Eos 7D. I confirm the exceptional sharpness, already at f/1.8 - f/2.0, which allows it to be used in low light conditions or for night scenes. I tried to make prints even 60x40, and those made with this lens are among those with more detail, among the various that I printed, even with Canon L series lenses. I found myself very well both for starry skies, but also to photograph the fireflies, where the wide opening was fundamental to highlight the light trails well. It's true, it has a poor focal range, if you think of it as a standard lens. In my case, however, for a 360-degree use (natural landscapes, nocturnal, portraits) I rarely missed those 15 mm of travel on the canvas side, obviously without thinking of using it for narrow portraits. Weight is important, but you get used to it and it doesn't upset the balance of the paired with the camera. The biggest flaw, on Canon SLR, is the autofocus, decidedly slower than the lenses of the parent company, and sometimes inaccurate. Using the USB Dock improves things a bit, but it doesn't eliminate the root of the problem. Consider taking some replicas of the shots you care about most, refocusing. The problem is that the inaccuracy is not easily categorized, even if it presents itself more with high-contrast scenes. I repeat, my ratings are on Canon 7D, I do not know if on the most recent APS-C SLR is different. Now I switched to Eos R5 (mirrorless), I tried to mount it, and what can I say. From this point of view the lens has been reborn. Higher autofocus speed (always less than Canon lenses), but above all surgical precision. It could be a great investment if ever a mirroless Canon APS-C came out in the future, where such a lens would truly be spectacular, if the autofocus were like that of the R5. There are not many such strategic lenses in terms of brightness and focal range at the moment. In summary, having to replace it with a fullframe lens moves me a sense of strong nostalgia, sum up. I believe that this is enough as a final assessment.

Pros: Sharpness, brightness, not excessive weight

Cons: The usual cap that never closes at the first as most of the goals on the market.

Opinion: Very high sharpness especially in the center already at the most open diaphragms. At slightly lower edges, but only on shorter focal points, on the others the center-edge difference difficult to see in real use. The weight does not seem excessive, especially when compared to other lenses of the Art series that I have tried, and I do not say this because it is enough to read it from the characteristics, but it is obvious that compared to art for full frame it is much more manageable. Despite being a lens for APS-C sensors, Sigma seems to have 'foreseen' it also for the APS-H format of the Sigma SD Quattro H on which I mounted it, in fact the vignetting is not there in the sense that, when you see, it is the same that you would default even on APS-C and resolves in a moment. This causes the SD Quattro H to become about 24-50, not bad as a landscape and portrait focal set which with f/1.8 is a lot of fun.

Pros: Brightness in relation to focal length, general yield

Cons: AF not unbeatable

Opinion: I do not dwell in detail on the sharpness to the edges at TA at 18 or 35, as an amateur I do not give too much weight. What is fantastic is that for an extremely affordable amount (especially on the used) you have a focal lens equivalent to ca. 28-56 to f/1.8 constant, and this generates many creative possibilities and gives incredible versatility, from the street, to the landscape, to night shots, to portraits set, reportage and so on. I only had it for a year (then I switched to FF), otherwise I would never detach it from my 70D again.

Pros: All

Cons: The focal point is a bit shrivelled but forced by the wide brightness

Opinion: I've been using it for 2 years and it's now irreplaceable. There is nothing that comes close to him on Mirrorless APS-C /H and M4/3. If you are lucky and can mount it on your room, even through adapters, do not hesitate to buy it. Any restrictions will be largely repaid. At the focal you get used to, certainly a 16-50mm f2 would be preferable :-) It should be updated to make it tropicalized but now the optics for APS-C I think are in decline. Keep in mind in reviews where the lens is used. Mine on Sigma SDQ and H and soon on Fuji XH-1. The AF is pretty good but it depends on the body where it is used. The SDQ is slow of its own, judging the AF of 18-35mm would be ridiculous. It satisfies me. I vote 9.8 for the blurry that is sometimes a little too nervous, otherwise it would be from 10 and praise.

Pros: Sharpness. Speed. Construction

Cons: You need to fix it with the USB Dock. maybe the weight.

Opinion: great goal. once settled it's a blade. I used it on the D7200, I was very happy, holding it in my hand ... a feeling of robustness and solidity with few equals. little vignette. at 18mm and TA is very sharp.great lens, confirming that the Art line is really well thought out. architecture and street.
