Sigma continues to make a splash with their line of Art lenses. The newest addition to the line, the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens was just announced on Monday, and today Sigma released the price for the lens, coming in at $849. The lens is already available for pre-order on B&H.
The lens directly competes against the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED Lens ($1,749), and the similarly-priced Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens ($1,649). If the new Sigma has the same optical performance as the previous lenses in the line, it will certainly be a stiff competitor for the Nikon and Canon lenses at slightly over half of the price of the slightly cheaper Canon 24mm.
The lens can now be pre-ordered from B&H.
Technical specifications, MTF charts, and other resources can be found on the Sigma website.
