Sigma's New 24-70mm f/2.8 Art Lens for Sony Is Quite Cheap

The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens for Sony is the newest from the company, and it brings with it the Art line's legacy of high-quality optics at affordable prices. Sigma has released the price for the lens, and it looks to be a great option for Sony shooters.

Sony's 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is a great lens, but it is also quite pricey, coming in at $2,198. Sigma's new 24-70mm f/2.8 Art lens comes in at exactly half that, at only $1,099. The 24-70mm f/2.8 Art looks to fill the workhorse role for many photographers, and comes with the following features:

  • 11-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • Maximum magnification ratio of 1:2.9 at the wide end, 1:4.5 at the telephoto end
  • Six F Low Dispersion (FLD) elements and two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements to reduce aberrations and improve clarify and color
  • Three aspherical elements to reduce distortion and increase sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous Coatings to reduce flares and ghosting
  • Programmable AF-L button can be customized for different settings
  • Brass bayonet with rubber sealing 
  • Dust and splash resistant

Altogether, the lens seems to be a great option for Sony shooters looking for great optical performance at a good price. You can preorder the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens here

Looks like a bargain that I’m sure many Sony shooters will go for.

Can't wait to see the performance. I love sigma. I have the 135, 24, and 100-400 and they are all amazing.

Would love to see Fujifilm open up their mount to Sigma one day.

Happy to see it's not as hefty as some of their primes. Actually lighter than the Sony by .1lbs. If the optics hold up it looks like a great alternative.

I wonder how this compares with the cheaper Tamron 28-75/2.8.
