Surprisingly low price for super-fast f/1.8 Sigma 18-35mm zoom

We already reported about the much-anticipated Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art lens (click here), the first modern auto-focus zoom lens with an f-stop of 1.8.

Because of its incomparable speed we were ready for a relatively high price tag, even though it’s a Sigma lens. But it turns out that Sigma decided to surprise us – it will be available in July and will cost only $799 (you can already preorder it at B&H by clicking here).

Last week, DPReview published some photos that were taken with a preproduction model of this lens – click here to check them out. I think however that they are not really representative of what this lens is able to do, so please take them with a grain of salt.

We can’t wait to get our hands on this lens and will shoot a real-world video with it once we have it.

This could be an exceptional lens for any C100 shooter.

Bottom here is that, if SIGMA can offer that at an affordable price then even Canon would not need to double their price in order to make a profit. Thumbs up,
