Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art: my prime lens killer has arrived!


deutsch_s1

The 18-35mm f/1.8 Art is without a doubt one of the most interesting APS-C lenses released in recent years. It received a staggering amount of praise in the reviews, even in those where it was pitted against prime lenses. It outclasses garden-variety standard zooms with f/2.8 aperture mercilessly and allows APS-C camera users to get a taste of full frame, even though the focal length range is limited compared to 24-70/2.8 FF zooms. Image quality is supposed to be extremely good even wide open, although it is faster than other APS-S standard zooms by 1.33 stops, thanks to its f/1.8 aperture. I wanted to know just how good it is, so I had to buy it. At a later point in time I will compare it with the 35mm f/1.4 Art and the DP2M’s 30mm f/2.8. For now I will be taking photos with the lens. Scroll past the images of the lens itself to see my first shots taken with it.
