Announced in February 2016, the $1099 Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 DC HSM A (Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 A) is a fast-aperture telephoto zoom lens for Canon, Nikon, and Sigma APS-C lens mounts. Part of the Sigma Art series of high-end optics, the Sigma 50-100mm f/1.8 A is a rare beast for APS-C shooters, featuring a bright, constant f/1.8 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range. Offering an equivalent 80–160mm focal length on such Canon APS-C DSLRs as the EOS 7D Mark II, its focal range makes it a versatile option for shooting sports, wildlife, news, events, weddings, and portraits.
The EOS 7D Mark II is Canon’s flagship APS-C sensor DSLR, boasting a 20Mp resolution and a host of high-end features. It’s a popular choice for many serious enthusiasts and semi-pro photographers, so we’ve tested over 300 lenses on it to help you pick out the best one for you. In this first part of a two-part review, we round up the best zoom lenses for the Canon EOS 7D Mark II.
The Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS STM is a telephoto zoom designed for use on Canon DSLRs featuring an APS-C sensor. A versatile 2nd lens to complement the standard 18-55mm kit lens, it offers an equivalent 80-400mm focal length to get closer to the action and 3.5 stops of image stabilisation. With its DxOMark scores in, lets look at its strengths and weakness and consider some of the other options available.
After the runaway success of the full-frame 35mm f/1.4, Sigma is taking the initiative with this new ultra-high speed, pro-level standard zoom designed for APS-C format cameras. The specification is particularly promising, but does it mean the end of fixed focal lenses for APS-C? Read on to see how well this cutting-edge model performs in our labs.
