A Review of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Lens

A 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is the workhorse of choice for a ton of photographers and filmmakers, offering a versatile focal length range and a wide maximum aperture. They can be quite expensive, however, which is why Sigma's 24-70mm f/2.8 Art, which is about half the price of first-party options, is so intriguing. This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and if it can compete with more expensive options. 

Coming to you from The Hybrid Shooter, this great video review takes a look at the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens. The 24-70mm f/2.8 Art comes with a wide variety of features, including:

  • Six F Low Dispersion and two Special Low Dispersion elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • Three aspherical elements for decreased distortion and increased sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous coatings for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • Stepping motor and fast and quiet autofocus
  • Customizable AF-L button
  • Zoom lock switch
  • Maximum magnification of 1:2.9 at the wide end
  • Rounded 11-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Altogether, the 24-70mm f/2.8 Art looks like a great alternative to first-party options at a very affordable price. Check out the video above for the full rundown.

Wow! What a monster of a lens. My Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 Pro (24-80 equiv) is probably HALF the size and weight of this lens
