One Month with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Art lens

In the last few weeks I have had the chance to travel with Sigma’s 18-35mm F1.8 lens to New Jersey, Las Vegas and Chicago.  The lens was put through the tests on a Canon 7D, 50D, and 60D.  I was so intrigued by the lens that as a full-frame shooter, I went and found a cropped sensor camera just to use it.  It was well worth it.

While in Las Vegas, I made a point to only use this lens on the Canon 50D.  The results were amazing!  Here you can see two black and white images made with the combination.  The first is a portrait of Danny, a shop worker in Nevada.  This image was photographed at 18mm at 1/200sec at f/1.8 and ISO 800.  This image shows incredibly crisp detail and textures at the lenses widest aperture.  The next image is of an old desk in a barn in Nevada.  This image was photographed at 23mm 1/30sec at f/1.8 and ISO100.  This image shows details so crisp that the fine texts in various parts of the image are readable.
