Hi all, I recently purchased a Sigma 18-35m 1.8 for my Canon 70D. After using it on a wedding shoot I was severely disappointed that nearly 40% of my shots were out of focus! Not by enough to tell in the camera screen, but noticeable enough on my 4k monitor at home to not be "print" worthy. I am currently being refused a refund at Jessops because I have used the lens, and also because a Sigma engineer saw my lens and they confirmed there was not an issue. The engineer didn't try my lens with...

Hi - I'm an "enthusiast" level photographer getting back into DSLR after a 10 year break. I recently bought a 80D w/ 18-135 USM II and for the money it seems like a good deal. 24 MB, 7 FPS, 46 all cross type AF, etc. But, as I shoot more I'm less happy with lens choices for APS-C. I  recently bought a Tamron 70-200 F2.8 G2 w/ x2 III extender. May have been dumb but I love the 70-200 on crop frame as a 100-300 equivalent tele.  Specifically I'm prep'ing for a trip to Egypt where having a nice...

Has anyone been able to test this combination out yet? More specifically with the a9? Looks like the lens is shipping I am tempted to order one. I did however just purchase a 24-70 GM but it won't arrive until next week and I am second guessing. My experience with Sigma and the MC-11 is that the AF is not as snappy as the native lenses on my a6500 but I just purchased the a9, updated the MC-11 to the firmware that came out today and it seemed my 18-35 Art was nearly native speed and zero...

Hi I'm confused. Im going to buy Panasonic GH5 + Speedbooster XL 0.64 + Sigma 18-35 f1.8. Am I wrong or Sigma 18-35 f1.8 has EF-S mount? About EF-S mount we can read on Metabones website: EF-S lenses require modification to fit or may remain incompatible even after modification (but third party DX lenses can be used without modification) On GH5, Speed Booster XL can be used with full frame lenses only. DX lenses are unable to cover full-sensor-width readout + in-body image stabilizer...

Hello everyone, and thanks to all who reply, I wanted to upgrade my gear for a while and now I can finally afford it. I own a Sigma 18-35 for Canon, so I checked these 2 options; I'm shooting both video and images equally. This is my dilemma: Buying the Canon 80D. or, buying the Panasonic GH4 and the Metabones T Speed Booster XL (which is the more expansive option). Thanks for the help! ;-)

Today I got my hands on the GH5 and was eager to test it out. I previously owned a GH4/Speedbooster Ultra 0.71x/Sigma 18-35mm, and kept the speedbooster and lens for the upgrade. I updated the speedboosters firmware and tried it on my GH5 and it was compatible. Unfortunately, I ran into a couple issues: 1. When I'm in movie mode I cannot control the shutter speed or aperture, I don't even see it on the screen. The only things I can change are the ISO, white balance, and the exposure meter....

I am looking for a wide angle lens to shoot landscape on my Nikon d7100. I am interested in Sigma 18 35 1.8 which is priced at 799 USD and I found couple days back that Nikon 16 35 F4 is on sale and is currently priced at 996 USD and the other option is Nikon 24 1.8 which is priced at 746 USD. I will be moving to FX body for sure in future (May be couple years), with that being said which lens is better investment ? I know Sigma 18 35 1.8 is a great dx lens , Nikon 16 35 is great FX lens but...

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to read my question. I am going to backpack in Japan this summer. Apart from usual travel photos, I would like to focus on taking pictures of festivals that take place after sunset. It includes hanging lanterns, lanterns on the ground, floating on water surface, people placing candles along paths or in temples, illuminated shrines or trees and so on. All I have right now is Canon 1000D with Canon 50mm  f/1.8 lens and Canon kit lens 18-55. I don't have a...

Hi All!I've been lurking silently here for a while, but officially signed up as I'm close to making a purchase on a video set up. After much research, I've decided on the Panasonic G85 which I'll be using exclusively for video (the IBIS was the key feature for me over the GH4 as I plan on doing a fair bit of handheld work, and GH5 seems a bit too expensive for my first dive into video). For lens choices, I've got it narrowed down to 2 options:1. Sigma 18-35 with Speed Booster (I already have...
