Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Flare Control: Aperture Series 'Extreme Backlighting, Cherry Blossoms'

Get the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art at B&H Photo.

The 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art follows the superb 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art and 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, both reviewed in DAP.

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art

I fought off aggressive mosquitos on a very warm March day to shoot this image. Sort of summer with mosquitos, except that it’s too dry in summer for them to appear.

This scene was shot against the fading dusk sky, and given a massive boost to shadow areas by +100 (maximum) in Adobe Camera Raw in order to open up very dark areas (some contrast added to counteract the inevitable 'flat' look from so doing).

If the lens does not resist flare, attempts to do this would result in poor contrast in these dark areas.

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art: Extreme Backlighting, Cherry Blossoms

Presented with HD and UltraHD images, along with large crops from f/1.4 - f/13.

Also of interest is the lens sharpness and contrast given the radical processing, as well as the control of color aberrations. This scene would be serious trouble for many lenses, e.g., massive violet fringing.
