Sigma's Art lenses have been wildly popular for the company, especially since they offer professional-level performance and image quality for significantly more affordable prices than first-party manufacturers. Today only, you can get a great deal on the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 Art lens for a variety of lens mounts, as well as 50% off a Lexar memory card.
Today only, B&H is taking $200 off the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 Art lens for Sony E and Leica L mounts and $400 off the same lens for Canon EF and Nikon F mounts.

Sigma's Art version of the lens is just $899 today, making it far more affordable than most other options.

After reading the critical reviews on B&H, I would never buy this lens, even if it was available at half price.
Overall ratings of this lens on all mounts is 4.5 stars out of 5. I also bought this lens day one and it's been great. Shit, I even dropped it and it still works. It's kind hard to take advice from someone who 1. Makes such a troll comment, 2. Is wrong. 3. Does not contribute much to this site except for an opinion that's not inline with reality. Every product is going to have a bad apple here and there. You wouldn't own any lenses if you base everything off a few negative reviews versus the many good ones. In the future please have something positive to contribute.
Well, you may call me what you like. I rather trust detailed negative reviews than all those 90% others just telling "great lens" and nothing much more.
Did you even take a look and read about it (Nikon copy of the lens)? You did not contribute any useful information as well, btw.
"The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 Art was the worst of the three and showed very high sample variance at all focal lengths, to the point where it rendered most of my tests inconclusive – I had to pick the better sample of the three I tested for each focal length, which is not good. "
I'll keep my Nikon G non-VR.
the 1667x cards come in 2 version write speeds. 120MB/s and this 90MB/s
FWIW, I’ve been using the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 Art lens on an L-mount camera since October and have found it to be an excellent value performer. It’s certainly the equivalent of the Sony GM Canon L lenses of the same speed and focal range. (I also own and use both of those systems.). This seems a very good year-end deal.
I used the Lexar 2000x with my R6, and in random occasions I got an error message saying the write speed of my memory card was slow. Anyone has this experience?
I bought the Sony SDXC and it worked fine. Is Lexar that bad?
