Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Aperture Series @ 14mm: Checkerboard Mesa, Zion

Published in my review of the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art is a look at performance at 14mm:

Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Aperture Series @ 14mm: Checkerboard Mesa, Zion

Includes full resolution images from f/2.8 through f/11.

The Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art shows itself to be a very strong contender in this series, but also an outstanding value at about $1299. That Sigma can deliver this kind of performance for that price is a testament to very advanced and cost-effective engineering. That it can deliver satifying imagery on 45 megapixels (Nikon D850) is impressive. I’d like to have it in my bag; it was very convienient shooting in the sand dunes where I am loathe to change lenses (or carry them at the time, still being concussed).

This series and others are important to understanding how to get the best out of the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art, just as my review coverage of the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art was and is. A lens can be bought and used, but unless its behavior is understood, sub-optimal results are virtually guaranteed on 36/42/45/50 megapixels even with the best lenses. That is one goal I strive for in my reviews, which aim for practical working knowledge.

The Nikon D850 and the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art make a fine pairing for black and white photography.
