Sigma’s New Heavy Hitter

Sigma has made a reputation for itself by pushing the envelope in large aperture lens design.  I reviewed the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 ART a little over a year ago, and, while I had a few quirks with the autofocus, the image quality was exceptional – unmatched by any other APS-C lens.  Sigma has just released a new APS-C Goliath:  the new Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM ART.  This is a big lens in every sense of the word, and if it proves as good as expected, will probably sell a lot of copies for Sigma simply because there isn’t anything to match it.  At nearly $1100, this is the most expensive lens in the ART series, but is a relative bargain compared to the full frame 70-200mm f/2.8 variants.  I’ll be reviewing the lens primarily on the new Canon EOS 80D body, a perfect match for this high-tech lens.  Stay tuned for my findings along the way!

    It’s pretty good. A few quirks, but I think it’s going to be an impressive lens.

    hi dustin;
    you are doing great job here. here is my idea: i wanna use this 50-100mm lens with my FX camera at its 80 to 100mm range. because i need it for my job. i work under low light and i shoot sports. this lens will rise quality of my images. However my question is just like other 3rd party lenses how fast and accurate its focus speed and does sharpness good for FX camera? your opinions are important for sure if you can answer. I dont wanna give more than a grand just for assuming it is good.
    my best.

  4. Hi Dustin,
    I am thinking is it possible to see the auto focusing speed of this lens? Like how fast it get the focus and does it hunt when trying to get the correct focus.

    Fergus, I’m afraid the lens has been returned now. I only have them for 3-4 weeks on average.
