Reviews of the Sigma 50-100mm F/1.8 DC HSM Art from around the web. »

The Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens will win no awards for its zoom focal length range, but as of review time, no zoom lens has a wider aperture. And, at the 100mm end of the range, there is no equal even among the prime lens offerings. The f/1.8 max aperture, available over the entire zoom range, makes this lens an extremely attractive option. It is especially attractive compared to the trio of prime lenses otherwise required to cover this range.

The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM became a sought-after lens by those who fancied a fast wideangle to standard focal length lens at an attractive price, the only caveat with its design being that its use is strictly confined to those using APS-C sensor cameras. At the time of its release, there were suggestions that the lens might be the first in a series of fast f/1.8 zoom lenses from Sigma, but as the years rolled by it seemed like the 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM may have been a one off.
