I was lucky enough to get a myself a Nikon Mount Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Art series lens. Earlier we looked at sample photo for the Sigma mount already.

The Sigma’s weight and size is comparable to both the Nikon 17-55 FX and 16-35mm FX lens. As solid as a tank and with a tight barrel. Personally, I am satisfied with its build. One thing to note is that it fits on a 72mm filter instead of a 77mm filter.

I mounted this lens with my rusty and trusty Nikon D2X to check out its bokeh, since this was one of the deciding factor for many people to own this lens. The F1.8 is really a sweet deal!

Do I like it? Yes.
I enjoy the internal zoom feature where the lens does not extend out physically like 17-55mm.

A worth reading thread at DPreview Nikon 17-55 F2.8 or Sigma 18-35 F1.8 ??
Most of the reviews online are fitted with either a Canon or Sigma mount. If you have used a Nikon mount too, let us know what’s your thought.
I will continue to upload more samples taken by 18-35mm F1.8 in a few days.
