A Review of the Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary Lens

Sigma recently announced the 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens, which is billed as the lightest and smallest f/2.8 standard zoom lens available for mirrorless systems. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and the kind of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this great video review takes a look at the new Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens. Beyond being the smallest and lightest standard zoom lens available for mirrorless cameras, the 28-70mm f/2.8 comes with a variety of great features, including:

  • Better edge-to-edge performance thanks to increased control of axial chromatic aberrations and sagittal coma aberrations
  • Dust- and splash-proof mount
  • Water- and oil-repellant front element
  • Short working distance of 2.8 inches (7.1 cm) at 28mm
  • Stepping motor that provides fast and quiet autofocus appropriate for both photo and video work
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

The Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 definitely has some stiff competition from the highly popular Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8, but it also looks like quite a good performer in a very portable package. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on the lens.
