Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art Aperture Series @ 22mm: Across the Canyon View of Checkerboard Mesa

Published in my review of the Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art, this aperture series looks at far-field sharpness at 22mm from f/2.8 through f/9: can the lens make a sharp image across the field, at least when stopped down a bit?

Includes full resolution images from f/2.8 through f/9.

It is important when testing a zoom to test it across the zoom range, and also with near focus and far focus. I am not nearly so happy with performance at 22mm as at 14mm.

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.

“Home” lies below—my silver Mecedes Sprinter Photography Adventure van. The day was a bit of a struggle still being concussed, but by moving slowly and with long experience, I made my way up a class 4 slope to take this image. This eastern section of Zion makes a fantastic bike ride.
