- Weather-Sealed, Protective Front Coating
- Built-In Lens Hood
- Nice build complete with thorough weather sealing
- Reasonable size that is smaller and lighter than DSLR alternatives
- Great autofocus that is smooth, fast, and silent
- Strong optical performance that is very even across the frame and focal range
- Very low coma and vignette = great astro lens!
- Good flare resistance
- Great focal range
- No traditional filters = additional expense if filtering desired
- Considerably more expensive than new Tamron wide angle zoom
The Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN | ART is a welcome addition to the Sony FE and Leica L catalog of lenses. It’s a nice blend of build, autofocus, and optical performance in a price that is reasonable ($1400 USD) compared to the Sony alternatives (either the 12-24mm F4G @ $1700 or the 16-35mm F2.8 GM @ $2200). It’s chief competition in many ways will be the much cheaper Tamron 17-28mm F2.8 RXD ($900 USD). There are many reasons to choose the Sigma, despite the price difference, including a more useful focal range, more feature-rich build, better edge performance, and lower coma. The wider focal range offers up more photographic possibilities.
