The 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is the workhorse of choice for quite a few photographers, but most such lenses come at a hefty price for the quality and consistent performance demanded by professionals. The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art offers an alternative to its higher-priced competitors. Is it right for you? This great video review will answer that for you.
Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this helpful video takes a comprehensive look at the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens. 24-70mm f/2.8 lenses are the choice of a wide range of photographers, as they offer a highly useful focal length range coupled with a reasonable maximum aperture. However, they often come at a price, with most choices hovering around the $2,000 mark (for example, the Sony version currently sits at $2,198). On the other hand, the Sigma version is exactly half the price of the Sony version, making it a very intriguing option, particularly if it can hold up to the Art series' typical reputation of excellent image quality. Users also get the benefit of Sony's in-body image stabilization, making it all the more versatile. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the lens.
