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

The 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is one of the most popular and important options out there, found in a huge range of genres and applications, where its combinations of a wide aperture and commonly used focal lengths make it a prized choice. That being said, such lenses tend to be rather expensive. Sigma's 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN brings the price down by a significant amount by making a few clever compromises. This great video review takes a look at the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in usage. 

Coming to you from Stefan Malloch, this excellent video review takes a look at the Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens. No doubt, some creatives will miss having 24mm available to them, but if you don't need that wide focal length, the 28-70mm f/2.8 looks like quite a nice option at $799. It comes with: 

  • Two F Low Dispersion and two Special Low Dispersion elements for less chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • Three aspherical elements for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous coatings for reduced flares and ghosting and better contrast
  • Stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus
  • Dust- and splash-resistance
  • Weight: 16.6 oz

Check out the video above for Malloch's full thoughts on the lens.
