After seeing a handful of requests for help on picking out the best sharp lens for Nikon d750 cameras we decided to sit down and take the time to publish this article to help as many people as possible who may have this same problem. Thankfully, unlike some cameras, this was an obvious choice.
When it comes to looking for a sharp lens, there is no real another choice than the Sigma Art range. The range has one of the best reputations within the community for the sharpness of its lenses and we are confident that our lens of choice will be able to meet all of your requirements. We will also be sharing a number of example photographs throughout the article showing just how good the sharp image quality from our recommended lens actually is.
The Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Art DC HSM Lens
The functionality, performance, and build quality of the lens are all on point and considering what the lens provides you, it is well worth its asking price. Since its release, the lens has grown a massive core customer base of photographers who love its image quality with many posting reviews (click here to read some of them) commenting on just how sharp their photographs actually are when using the lens.
Using the higher zoom range of the lens around the 35mm capability allows you to take some amazingly sharp portrait photographs that will help keep your clients happy. Your subject will look flawless in the image and the lens also offers a fair amount of image manipulation to allow you to quickly and easily capture exactly what you want.
The manual zoom ring is easy to rotate if you decide that you want to slightly change your zoom level before capturing your photograph and the manual focus ring is very easy to use to tweak your focus level too. Both of the rings offer just enough resistance to allow you to easily rotate them without you over rotating and over adjusting your zoom or focus levels.
Choosing to use the lower zoom levels the lens offers around the 18mm mark offers a beautifully sharp wide angle that can be used for all of your wide angle needs. It allows you to capture any epic landscape vistas that you may see in all their natural glory and detail without issue. The F1.8 aperture the lens has provides some excellent low light performance too allowing you to capture some truly unique and beautiful photographs like the example below.
Due to lens filters being so popular with landscape photography we would just like to quickly point out that the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 comes with a 72mm filter thread if you are wanting to pick any filters up. Thankfully, the 72mm thread is pretty popular making it very easy for you to easily source some excellent filters to meet your needs. If you are wanting to pick some filters up then we would highly recommend the Gobe 72mm filter range (Click here to check for product prices and availability) for budget-friendly filters with some great quality.
The 18-35mm variable focal length of the lens also allows you to use it in a number of general use situations too. Amongst others, this can be street photography, wedding photography, and architectural photography helping you get as much out of the lens as possible. The excellent low light performance and responsive manual focus and manual zoom ring also allow you to capture the photograph you want the vast majority of the time.
If you are planning on traveling then the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 will enable you to capture those once in a lifetime images that will really make the difference for you and help preserve the memory forever.
