Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Arriving for Testing

 
Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art

Get Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art and Sigma DG HSM Art lenses at B&H Photo.

See my reviews of Sigma DG HSM Art lenses at 20mm, 24mm, 35mm, 50mm.

See my overview of the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art.

Unexpectedly, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art showed up today.

So now I have it along with the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 and the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art to shoot on my trip starting tomorrow.

At about $1599, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art might offer performance that might rival Canon’s about $2799 11-24mm f/4L. Or it might fall short—to be seen/tested. But the Sigma lens is available for Nikon or Canon or Sigma SA mounts. As it stands, I’ll be testing it on the Nikon D810.

  • High Grade Aspherical Glass to control distortion
  • Constant F4 through entire zoom
  • Updated AF system with 1.3X Torque
  • Full frame coverage for Nikon F, Canon EF, Sigma SA mount
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to 22
  • FLD and Aspherical Elements
  • Super Multi-Layer Coating
  • Hyper Sonic AF Motor, Manual Override
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm
  • TSC Material, Brass Bayonet Mount
  • Dust- and Splash-Proof Construction
  • Compatible with Sigma USB Dock

With 16 elements in 11 groups (same as Canon 11-24/4L) including two elements claimed equivalent to fluorite, the Sigma 12-24mm appears to be a very highly corrected lens offering very low distortion and outstanding performance.

Size

This is not small lens, being similar to the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G or Canon’s 11-24mm f/4L except that the huge front elements is, well, huge.

Fit and finish are attractive, just like all its siblings, and more attractive than Nikon and Canon offerings, to my eye.
