Pros: Color is better then Nikon 18-105 and thats all. And it has classy look, nothing more
Cons: 1.Very slow autofocus, sometimes very accurate, but most of the times no focus at all (and I know how to use it believe me). It's very bad in poor light, hard to acquire focus and when it do acquire it will be wrong focus.
Verdict: I comparison with 18-105, Nikon is faster to acquire focus and it is sharp always. On 300 fotos 1 is a miss. Sigma miss 40-60% photos. If you shoot lowlight or some parties, don't buy this lens.

Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM "Art"

 
4.4
Pros: Constant F1.8 aperture throughout zoom range, Excellent build quality throughout the lens' construction, Large focus and zoom rings are perfectly dampened and easy to find and grasp, Capable of shallow-depth of field wide angle portraits, The only fast and wide angle solution for Pentax's many...
Cons: Not weather-sealed despite excellent build quality and both internal zoom and focusing, Dreadful autofocus accuracy when using PDAF (looking through viewfinder, Bokeh can be jarring with highlights, producing "frog-egg" or "donut" ring bokeh, Stark color, temperature, and contrast shift from wide...
Verdict: During Photokina in 2012, Sigma officially announced a re-structuring of their entire lens lineup, declaring that all future lenses would each be part of one of three new product lines: "Contemporary" for affordable consumer lenses, "Sport" for fast and weather-sealed telephoto lenses, or "Art" for...

Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM Review

 
3.5
Pros: Terrific image quality, Wide f/1.8 aperture, Snappy autofocus
Cons: Short zoom doesn't do much, May be overkill for APS-C users, Flaky lens cap
Verdict: Sigma's 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM ($800) is a formidable piece of glass if you're looking for a medium focal length (short, if you're shooting full frame), wide aperture add-on for your DSLR, provided you've got the budget for an $800 lens.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens

 
4.5
Verdict: When it was announced roughly a year ago, Sigma's 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art lens was the first of its type with a constant f/1.8 maximum aperture. Designed exclusively for cameras with APS-C sized sensors, it covers the 35mm equivalent of 29-56mm on Canon DSLRs and 27-52mm on other bodies.

Sigma 18-35mm F/1.8 DC HSM Lens: On Assignment: Photographing Denver's Forney Museum Of Transportation

Verdict: Sigma's 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM is part of their DC series of lenses designed for APS-C-sized sensors so the imaging circle is matched to the size of the sensor. For this assignment, I used a Canon EOS 60D with a 22.3x14.9mm sensor, producing an equivalent angle of view of a 28-56mm lens.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Lens Review

Verdict: The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens is built for APS-C format cameras, providing a 27-52.5mm equivalent full frame field of view. At 1.78 lbs, the lens is not quite a bear; however, you'll definitely notice an increase and size and weight from other variable aperture zoom lenses built for APS-C...

Lens Test: Sigma 18–35mm f/1.8 DC HSM

Verdict: When the announcement of Sigma's new 18–35mm lens arrived, some of our staffers chuckled upon opening the e-mail. Why? Because of what appeared to be a typo in the headline: Instead of f/2.8, it quoted f/1.8 as the maximum aperture!

4.0
Pros: The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM lens currently occupies a unique spot as a wide-aperture zoom lens built specifically for APS-C mounts.
Cons: Lacks optical stabilization
Verdict: As long as it stays at a sub-$1,000 price, the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM lens will be a great deal for photographers using APS-C dSLRs.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Review

 
4.8
Pros: f/1.8 maximum aperture, Excellent image quality, Full-time MF option, Very good sharpness
Cons: Not full-frame coverage, Somewhat weighty, Modest 2x zoom range
Verdict: Ground-breaking f/1.8 maximum aperture wide-angle zoom for APS-C DSLRs gets a workout

4.3
Pros: Super fast constant F1.8 maximum aperture, Excellent optics, even wide open, Fast, silent autofocus, Solid build quality without being over-heavy, Compatible with Sigma's USB dock and Optimization Pro software
Cons: Restricted zoom range, Needs detailed AF microadjustment for best results, Inconsistent autofocus in difficult conditions even after microadjustment, Physically rather large for a standard zoom
Verdict: The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM was announced to widespread excitement, if only for the company's sheer ambition in making such a fast zoom. But this inevitably came with a degree of scepticism - it's hard enough to make an F2.8 zoom that's really sharp wide open, so could an F1.8 zoom possibly work?

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens Review

 
5.0
Verdict: The word "groundbreaking" seems inadequate for describing the awesomeness of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens. The primary reason for that awesomeness is the not-seen-in-any-other-zoom-lens f/1.8 aperture.

Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM

Verdict: On paper the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM effectively replaces fast 28mm, 35mm and 50mm equivalent optics in your camera bag, saving space and money whilst offering the convenience of a zoom lens.

Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM

 
4.5
Pros: Sharp. Wide aperture. Reasonable price tag. Available for several camera systems
Cons: Big. No optical stabilization. Some wide-angle barrel distortion.
Verdict: Prior to the introduction of the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM ($799 direct) lens shutterbugs with APS-C D-SLR cameras had to make a choice when it came to lens functionality. You can go with a zoom lens and cover a range of focal lengths, but even top-end models only opened up to f/2.8.

Verdict: If you had a lot of time used to the not so clear 18-135 (3.5 - 5.6) or 18-55 (3.5 - 5.6) and bought a 50mm 1.8 because that was the cheaper solution to have better images, you will freakout with sigma 18-35 1.8. Have clear images even zooming!

Great focal length. Good build quality. Superb optics

 
4.0
Verdict: I've had it 2 weeks and shot a few sporting events, swapping to it 6 or 7 times. The subject has such dimension if you can get close enough. Team huddles have a great look compared to a lens that flattens it out. Shot numerous waist up shots at f/2, blowing out the background nicely.

Pros: Excellent build and image quality
Cons: One needs to use this lens with care due to the shallow depth of field
Verdict: This is a classy lens for APS sensor cameras in every way. Build quality is first rate with smooth zoom and focusing action. It is a perfect match for my Canon 70D (or a 7D) Image quality stopped down is razor sharp with virtually no distortion or vignetting.

Sigma 18-35 f1.8 Nikon Mount

 
5.0
Pros: Very sharp and precise focus
Cons: I wish they added vibration reduction. Using it without a tripod indoors without flash would soften the image when you pixel peep in the monitor. Totally acceptable in prints 5x7 and below. Also, can only be used is APS-C sensor cameras
Verdict: This is a very sharp lens from 18-35 focal length wide open. Sharpness is comparable or better than fixed lenses I own (35mm f1.8G and 50mm f1.8D) Focusing is precise and there is no need to use the micro focus adjustment on my Nikon D7000. Build quality is outstanding. Comes with a free hood too.
