Sigma’s new 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens (yes, a constant f/1.8 zoom) just got an official price point of $799 and it will start shipping next month. It is available for Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax and Sigma DSLR mounts. You can pre-order the new lens with free shipping here at B&H Photo.
My thoughts are that this is perfect pricing for this lens, and I think Sigma is going to sell a ton at this price with the overly positive early reviews we’ve seen. Sigma is knocking it out of the park lately, and this is yet another home run.
It looks like Adorama jumped the gun on the Canon 6D product listing (now removed), confirming the $2099 price tage and the 20.2MP full frame sensor. The full announcement should hit later tonight around midnight.
