Why does the listing say Nikon only, but the buy page has Canon as an option?..

Would love to get some clarification on this also before I commit to this drop.

I asked support for clarification on this. They claim that there are a *few* lenses available with the Canon mount, but they were not sure how many. I'm hoping they update the drop page to reflect that.

Nikon only? That is odd. Have to wonder if Sigma has surplus Nikon glass they are having a hard time moving.

Is the restarting of this drop for a US version or international version? I really want to get this lens, though it is known for having a lot of sample variation, thus odds are that the lens will not focus perfectly out of the box. Unlike other sigma lenses where you can use the USB dock to calibrate the focus at multiple focal lengths and subject distances (has a large impact on improving image quality since this class of lens has virtually no fringing or chromatic aberation within 3mm of the central point of the focal plane). Anyway, if it is a US version, then the lens can be sent to sigma with the camera, and they will calibrate the lens to the camera, but they will not do this for international versions that lack a US warranty. Lens calibration is fear better than AF-Fine tune on the camera body, especially for zoom lenses.

I used the Canon version of this lens, and was disappointed for what I used it for, indoor gym sports (volleyball). The issue/problem was that the zoom ring was STIFF. As I see it, this is due to a design decision. The zoom ring has a relatively short throw, from 17 to 50mm, significantly less than 90 degrees. This short throw, then requires a steep zoom cam, to trombone the lens out. this steep cam, then requires more force to be applied to turn the zoom ring. I would have preferred a longer throw zoom ring, to get an easier to turn zoom ring. If you do not shoot sports, and are not constantly zooming the lens, as I do when shooting sports, the stiff zoom ring may not be an issue for you.
BTW, for you Nikon guys, the zoom ring on the Sigma lens that I used turns in the opposite direction than the Nikon lens. This is not an issue for casual users, but for anyone doing fast action, where muscle memory works the zoom ring, you could miss the shot when you turn the zoom the wrong way.

This only Nikon mount but I own this for Canon (selling it now actually). Its the perfect lens if you’re starting out on crop body and you want to upgrade from the kit lens. While it’s not as fast as your typical f1.8 primes, it’s definitey fast enough for most general use cases and will do much better in low light.
While you shouldn’t expect this lens to be the sharpest in the world, it’s my #1 recommendation for budget constant aperture zooms. Heres a few portraits I’ve taken with this and my old Canon T3i

OK price but not enough to make me jump. A quick check shows it on sale cheaper elsewhere without the drama.
