    I spent a very long time researching this lens and feel terrible about wasting so much money on other junk lenses. This lens replaces all the lenses in your bag and is a lens you always leave connected to your camera. The zoom ring is very smooth and is a fixed zoom lens that does not rotate in and out like other zoom lenses. I also own the sigma 17-50 f2.8 zoom lens and this one blows it away with quality and speed. The lens is a very heavy and long piece of glass and the motor is very quiet. Feels great in your hands. I highly recommend this lens for any Nikon camera and enjoy those amazing photos you will receive.

    Sigma Art series lens are great lenses. You esentially get multiple prime lenses, at an amazing price. Photos pop, with this lens, and you would likely have to spend 1000 or more to get another brands comparable lens, and even then it wouldnt have an 18-35 variable range in prime. Does great in low light, and cant wait to try another art lens by sigma.

    I use this lens on a Nikon D7100. The image quality and color are very good and it is fast becoming one of my favorite lenses. With an f/1.8 it is a little over 1 stop faster than an f/2.8 and is ideal for low light photography or astrophotography. I highly recommend this lens.

    This lens blows away any kit lens for APC Canon or Nikon cameras. The noticeable increase in sharpness is staggering. Auto Focus is quick and quiet. I would recommend this lens for anyone who would like better pictures with any APC crop sensor camera.

    I am sure if you have a crop sensor dslr then you have done a lot of research on this lens. I am using it professionally. It is amazing. Not rugged though. Baby it and it will do you very good.

    This lens is very sharp, but you really need to purchase the Sigma USB dock to calibrate it to your specific camera body.
