Product Overview

Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 DC HSM | Art is a zoom lens for Canon EF-mount, Nikon F-mount, Pentax K-mount, Sigma SA-mount, and Sony A-mount. It covers the APS-C image circle. Introduced by Sigma in 2013, it has 17 elements in 12 groups.
Photographers will be pleased by the fact that the lens is internally-zooming, meaning that the barrel does not extend when the focal length is changed. This helps balance and weather sealing; it is also great for long-term durability, as there is less chance for moisture and dirt to get in.
