Help with Sigma lens compatibility for EOS 2000D

Hi, could anyone tell me if the sigma 18-35 f1.8 art lens is compatable for my camera which is a canon eos 2000d, and if this lens would be ok to shoot small gigs in poor light in pubs and clubs. Iwoul be purchasing this lens second hand to keep the cost down.

 

Thanks in advance.

So its the camera's AF system and the lens motor. That determines how fast it will lock focus. Sometimes the camera will need an AF Assist Beam. Because there simply isn't enough contrast for the AF system to lock. Your camera relies on contrast. It doesn't rely on how bright something is. From my experience the 9 point AF system wasn't cutting it for me. It was slow in low light and would miss focus. The camera would always lock focus if I used the AF Assist Beam. I've always used an external speedlite instead of the built-in flash.
