How is everyone liking this lens?
I shoot weddings with an 80D & 70D
I am thinking of grabbing it to pair with my 18-35 1.8 ART.
I have the Sigma 70-200 2.8 but I can't use it much at weddings bc it is too long on crop. 50-100 would be perfect!

Love it! It evens out the playing field between crop and full frame. Thank you Sigma!

Did you have any focus issues? Did you calibrate it with the Sigma dock or was your copy good to go out of the box?

No focus issues for me and it was tack-sharp out of the box. My other Sigma 1.8 Art I hard to tweak but I used the built-in calibration on my D500.

Basically I love this combo (18-35 and 50-100 on the d500) and with both lenses I feel like I can confidently cover many situations.

Thats my plan too. I will miss the 70-200 for events but the money is in weddings and I shoot more weddings anyway

That would for sure be an interesting lens! This lens is very big and weighs a beastly 3 lbs so I'd imagine a FF 1.8 moderate telephoto lens would be unreasonably heavy.

I still prefer the 70-200 for the ceremony.. but this lens is amazing for portraits :)

only thing that disappointed me was the minimum focus distance.. and for that reason i'm keeping my Sigmalux..

I got a very nice headshot of my son - he is camera shy (even though I've always been careful not to overstep with the camera) so this is a rare photo of him. I'm thinking of potentially using this lens for headshot clients.

Here's an example of how much crop I can get when I nail focus in good conditions:

It's called the 2.8 70-200 :D This lens was built for crop frame for a reason: It fills a void neither Canon nor Nikon were providing for crop sensor cameras. It is roughly the equivalent of the 2.8 70-200 on a FF so basically you guys already have it :D

Well 80-160mm on a Canon crop

Had to tape the AF switch as it kept switching to manual while i was shooting in portrait mode..


One from family session at the weekend :)
