Last week Sigma announced they would be releasing a new 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art lens. While the press release was chock full of details and specs on the lens, the price and any potential release date were mysteriously missing. Following another announcement from Sigma today, this new lens won’t, in fact, be free and you’ll have to wait until December to get your hands on it. Join us after the break for pricing and release details.
The new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art will no doubt be welcomed by professional photographers who use Sony cameras, and any cameras that are part of the L Mount Alliance. The 24-70mm focal range is loved by many for its versatility, and we’re sure Sigma’s will be able to stand up the heavy use that lenses like this are expected to endure.
Sigma claims the new 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art offers best in class optical performance thanks to its 11 blade design, six sheets of low dispersion (FLD) glass, and two sheets of special low dispersion (SLD) glass. You’ll also find the new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 has three aspherical lenses to help control chromatic aberrations, and Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating, which should help with image contrast and clarity.
The new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art also features:
- A zoom lock switch
- A lens hood with a lock
- Mount with dust- and splash-proof structure
- Compatability with Lens Aberration Correction
- Available mount conversion services
- A design to minimize flare and ghosting
- Evaluation with Sigma’s own MTF measuring system: A1
- High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount
- “Made in Japan” craftsmanship
The Sigma 24-70mm Art will be available for a price of $1,099, which is quite a bit cheaper than first-party options. If you’re interested in picking one of these lenses up for your Sony E Mount camera, or your Sigma, Panasonic, or Leica L Mount camera, you can do so in December 2019.
