A Review of the New Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG DN Art Lens

Sigma recently announced two new lenses, the 20mm f/1.4 DG DN Art and 24mm f/1.4 DG DN Art, both of which continue the Art series tradition of providing impressive image quality at a significantly more affordable price than many first-party options. This great video review takes a look at the 24mm f/1.4 DG DN Art and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this excellent video review takes a look at the 24mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens. 24mm prime lenses with maximum apertures are popular options for a variety of applications from events coverage to astrophotography, as they combine a wide (but not overly so) angle of view with a lot of light-gathering power. This particular option comes with a variety of features, including: 

  • Mounts: Sony E, Leica L
  • 17 elements in 14 groups
  • Two FLD elements, one SLD element, and four aspherical elements
  • Manual Focus Lock
  • Dust- and splash-resistant construction and water- and oil-repellent coating
  • Aperture ring lock
  • Focus mode switch
  • Customizable button
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating and Nano Porous Coating
  • 11-blade rounded diaphragm
  • Rear filter mount

Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
