Still haven’t found the right zoom lens for your Full Frame E-mount or L-mount mirrorless camera? Sigma’s latest release could be worth your consideration. If you need extra reach, the new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art Zoom lens is another option that provides a large aperture, standard zoom and best-in-class optical performance throughout the entire zoom range.
This new Art zoom lens follows the lauded 14-24mm f2.8 DG DN Art zoom lens launched by Sigma just a few months prior. It boasts of a superior design especially dedicated to mirrorless cameras. This ensures that lens size and weight are reduced as well as uniformity and high resolution in the entire image throughout the zoom range. Since it’s compatible with the latest Full Frame Sony E-mount and L-mount cameras (including Sigma’s own fp camera) and their functions, both professional and advanced amateur photographers will be able to take advantage of this new glass for shooting in different environments.
The new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art Zoom lens boasts of three aspheric elements to make thorough correction of aberrations like axial chromatic aberration of sagittal coma aberrations. It also has Sigma’s proprietary Nano Porous Coating on top of the Super Multi-Layer Coating to create high-contrast and clear images, resisting strong incident light like flares.
Since it comes with dust and splash-proof construction and has a zoom lock mechanism (that prevents the lens barrel from unexpectedly extending), the new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art Zoom lens promises to be an able companion for various shooting environments. With a minimum focusing distance of 18 cm for wide angle, and maximum magnification of 1:2.9 at wide angle and 1:4.5 at telephoto, this lens allows for more creative possibilities for close-up shots.
