Hello everyone, Hope you are well. I bought an SDQ and it is on it's way over to me, can't wait. I was thinking of getting a second lens. I am not going to use SDQ for portraits initially and would like a general purpose lens. I am thinking of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC Art lens. Please can you share your experience with this lens with a SDQ. If you have a SDQH, does it cover the sensor or does it work a different focal range without vignetting? Many thanks and have a lovely...

I'm shooting with 5D2 from a helicopter in arid country, which means early/late or dusty/hazy, and the low contrast is playing havoc with the AF. I'm employing two strategies, but there's certainly room for improvement, and I would appreciate advice: 1. Setting the camera to AF one shot and wide pattern to try to pick up contrast in the subject. This is producing a lot of missed focus (but better than centre point, which is totally hopeless). And many that are sharp in the focus area, but the...

Ok likely another lens thread, and I know there are a pile of these but am looking for some long term advice from people who may have been in my spot in the past and figured out a path forward. I'm currently shooting on a 600D and after thinking hard about it I am likely to stay with APS-c cameras moving forward (I prefer the slightly smaller bodies and would rather use the cash on better lenses as I feel the gap in bodies will close as tech advances.) Currently my gear consists of a kit...

Hello, I'm having a lot of trouble deciding on a new camera. Since 2011, I have been carrying a Nikon D7000, and since 2014 with a Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 lens. However, it weighs much too much, my shoulder and back end up suffering if I carry it around for a day or more. I have a Fujifilm X100s that I've been very pleased with, so I thought upgrading to a Fujifilm X-T2 would be a good idea. Instead, I've spent the past two weeks agonising over whether I should get it, for reasons other than its...

Hi, I am using this lens on canon t5i. Reading from reviews and recommendations, may need to do microadjustment. I do have sigma usb dock. Any recommendation on cost effective caliberation tool. I have seen DSLRkit folding card on amazon for 6 bucks for two cards. However some reviews seem to suggest that it might be challenging to use for wideangle or anything below 50mm I will appreciate if you have any recommendation in this regards. trying to save some bucks if possible compared to more...

Hello. I have a D7200, a 16-85 and a 35 1.8. Since christmas is coming I'd like to buy myself something new. I was thinking about selling my lenses and completely change my gear and setup. I was thinking about something like this: Sigma 18-35 1.8 + Nikon 50 1.8 + Nikon 85 1.8 With this I can cover the focals of a standard zoom but with much better results I think. I really like the 18-35 because of the sharpness and the constant 1.8. I think I'll use it mostly at 35 and 24mm, and it's like...

Hi, I have a budget problem. I want to buy panasonic g7 and i don't know if i should buy the sigma 18-35 1.8 with the cheap rj focal reducer or buy metabones speedbooster and attached it to the sigma 18-50 2.8 who i already have. This gear is mainly for making films. I will appreciate your opinions. thanks!

Hi guys, I'm looking for swaping my 600D for the 80D. I currently have a Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 and a Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD LD (yes, that's the full name). I've been watching some videos of the 80D using third party lenses, such as the Sigma 18-35, and the Dual Pixel AF works great, although since the Sigma is not a STM lens, it does a little annoying noise when refocusing. Doesn't seem to be too loud though, but it's noticeable. The PZD for the Tamron lens, stands for what...

I just purchased this lens from an online retailer and got it delivered. When it arrived there was a little bit of damage to the packaging so i paid closer attention. When i gently shake the lens there is a small rattle, although it does not sound like something a broken more like slight movement of the internals. Secondly when i AutoFocus it surprisingly noisy and clicks as it focuses, and when i goes from focusing far away to a short focus distance it makes a like a clug bang sound as it...
