Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Aperture Series: Defunct Ranch Buildings at Sunset

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art

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

A lens that resists flare and holds high contrast all while delivering high sharpness right from f/1.4 is a keeper in your author’s book, and it is a key question for a landscape photographer, or for anyone looking to make images with a high dynamic range.

Does the lens hold contrast and resist flare enough to make faux HDR viable?

If the lens grays-out the shadows or belches ghosting or veiling flares, it’s game over for scenes like this.

Thanks for nailing this shot, inspiring me to think about the right equipment, exposure, focus, composition, and time of day, a beautiful reminder of the aesthetic of straight photography.

DIGLLOYD: Especially hard to do when the results have to be part of my lens coverage, and not simply shooting at will. :)
