The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art is a budget take on the 24-70mm design, but falls short of the marks we look for in a pro lens.
Consistent performance through zoom range. Optical stabilization. Solid build. Dust and splash protection. Available for multiple systems. Attractive price.
Weak edge performance at f/2.8. Dimmed corners. Visible chromatic aberration. Some distortion.
The Sigma Art range of lenses aims at the highest level of optical performance. Coupled with the extremely useful 24-70mm range, such a lens offers the potential of a huge step up from the average “kit lens” often supplied in a package with the camera.
For many photographers, the most coveted walkabout focal length is 24-70mm, with most major manufacturers offering lenses at this range due to its extreme versatility. While own-brand lenses have often been the go-to for anybody looking for premium quality, Sigma has just released its own 24-70mm...
The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art lens offers a classic focal range and fast maximum aperture whilst delivering the goods in the image quality department. It's tack-sharp throughout most of the zoom range, particularly in the centre of the frame, with sharpness only falling off a little at f/2.8...
Not sure about why the construction is the way it is, but the Focus ring is incredibly small while the zoom ring which you will use way less and don't keep your hand on is big. In addition Focus is closer to the mount while zoom is closer to the front element.
I really love the feel of this lens. I personally like lenses with some weight to them, making them feel stronger in my hands. The sharpness is amazing, I was using Canon 28-70 L 2.8 before. Images are much sharper with the Sigma. Autofocus is on point, silent, smooth and very quick.
I have had this lense for a few weeks now and I have been impressed. From shooting close action shots to slower moving in a trail ride, this lense lets me get shots that I was unable to previously.
The Sigma 24-70 ARt lens is not a bad lens, but in Sigmas SUPERB Art series line up it simply does not perform as well as other ART series lenses. I own numerous Sigma ART (prime) lenses, and all of them (aside from this one) are absolutely superb.
Out of the box the lens is tack sharp at all lengths. Wide open at 2.8 the images are very sharp. Colors are very rich and beautiful. AF is fast and accurate and quiet. IS does a wonderful job. Build quality is top notch. I did not have to do any focus calibration at all.
at the happy moment of my purchase, he has worked very well in terms of clarity and focus. :)
It's a great len, very useful for portrait
very happy with this lens, I highly reccomend it.
My go to lens for portraits and night photography. Beats other brand lenses hands down. Great value and quality.
This lens was on backorder for a few months. It arrived the same day I had an assignment. I did a quick focus check at 24mm and 70mm (since there was no time to check and adjust with the dock). The focus was razor sharp.
