18-35mm f1.8 lens on APS-C is like a 27-53mm f2.8 lens on FF.

Wrong, Wrong and Wrong!!!! Stop spreading misinformation.

It's math, how is it wrong?

A F1.8 lens is always F1.8 lens regardless which camera it is attached to.

Not is, but is like. On a crop sensor, f/1.8 is like f/2.8 on a FF sensor. It has to do with both DoF and light gathering capability.
