The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Art lens is revolutionary. Never before has a zoom of this range been produced with a continuous, super-bright f/1.8 aperture. What’s even more amazing is that this groundbreaking optic exudes luxury in its build and performance and produces absolutely spectacular, tack-sharp images, even at f/1.8.
