Sigma Wide Angle 24mm f/1.8 (D) EX Aspherical DG DF Macro Autofocus Lens for Sony Alpha & Minolta Maxxum Series USA

You Pay: $549.00

This 24mm lens has a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture with macro focusing capability (minimum focusing distance is 7.1" for a reproduction ratio of 1:2.7). The 9-bladed aperture diaphragm obtains beautiful, circular out of focus characteristics. It incorporates a floating focus system and uses two aspherical elements for minimized distortion, spherical aberration and astigmatism. The lens front does not rotate during focusing, thus allowing the use of a "perfect hood" and the easy polarizing filters. Optical construction was created to minimize light falloff (darkening of the image corners) at maximum aperture-a big benefit particularly for digital cameras. Materials used in this lens are lead and arsenic free ecological glass.

        Comments about Sigma 24mm f/1.8 (D) EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

        This lens does a good job on both my A65 and NEX-VG900. I do a lot of very low light photography and need lenses with wide apertures like this for better exposure. f/1.8 seems to be just the right amount because at f/1.2 everything is so hard to focus, especially in the dark. In some ways I like that the AF/MF switch is simply pulling the ring forward or backward because it makes switching to manual focus quick and easy without fumbling for another switch in the dark. I also like that it can focus down to macro mode on it's own.

          Comments about Sigma 24mm f/1.8 (D) EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

          I am using the Sigma on a Sony a850 full frame camera to document a building renovation in NY as well as for indoor group photos at parties and family get togethers. It has acquitted itself well in both uses. I love the fast lens, which allows me to take more indoor photos without flash. It has also proven itself very sharp at f5.6 and above outdoors. While it doesn't have the build of the comparable Zeiss lens, it is well constructed and, at less than half the price, is an excellent value.

            Comments about Sigma 24mm f/1.8 (D) EX Aspherical DG DF Macro AF Lens:

            This is not a macro lens because the magnification ratio is not 1:1. That being said, it is a fine lens for low light shooting. Colors are vivid. Used in M mode and bump the ISO and concerts are a dream-the sensor light and the flash don't bother the performers. Also cmos means 36mm, just about what our eyes see at. Little CA, no vignetting. Very sharp.

              It fits my Sony A350 perfect.
              I wish I would have waited on my other generic lens. Sigma is well designded and sturdy. I'm going with Sigma instead of the overprice sony lens.
