Sigma has expanded their ever growing Global Vision line with the world's first constant f/2 aperture on a full-frame zoom lens, the 24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art Lens, available here with the Canon EF lens mount. The groundbreaking aperture combined with the versatile wide-angle 24-35mm focal length allows photographers to easily replace three common lenses, the 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm, with one piece of gear. The lens also offers exceptional control over depth-of-field with an aperture range from f/2 to 16, and when used on APS-C camera bodies it has an equivalent focal length of 38.4-56.

Along with the rest of the Art series, the 24-35mm offers high quality optics with the use of one "F" Low Dispersion and seven Special Low Dispersion glass elements in addition to two aspherical lenses. This system minimizes the appearance of spherical aberration, axial chromatic aberration and field curvature. A Super Multi-Layer Coating is present to reduce flare and ghosting for sharp, high-contrast images and it can focus as close as 11".

In terms of speed, this lens is equipped with a Hyper Sonic AF Motor which is nearly silent and has an optimized autofocus algorithm for fast, accurate tracking. The body of the 24-35mm is constructed of a Thermally Stable Composite material which performs well in all conditions. The barrel also has a focus ring with grants full-time manual override and the system is designed for completely internal focusing. Further ensuring optimal performance is compatibility with Sigma's USB Dock for firmware updates and AF microadjustment.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens' is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
The wide-angle 24-35mm focal length effectively covers three common lenses: the 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm. This allows users to shoot with just one lens and not worry about carrying additional equipment or swapping out optics in less-than-ideal weather conditions. When used with an APS-C-format sensor, the lens offers a 38.4-56mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/2 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
This lens has been designed using an advanced optical structure to achieve both high resolution and sharpness, along with consistent edge-to-edge illumination. A pair of aspherical elements correct for sagittal coma flare, distortion, and axial chromatic aberration, while also enabling full use of the fast f/2 maximum aperture with maintained peripheral brightness and sharpness.
One FLD and seven SLD glass elements have been incorporated within the lens design to correct for chromatic aberrations throughout the entire focusing range and help to ensure high image sharpness, clarity, and contrast regardless of focus point or aperture setting.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
A rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to produce an attractive out-of-focus quality.
The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material along with traditional metals for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. The outside of the lens barrel is also engraved with the year of production.
The included lens hood is fitted with a rubber connection for a secure fit.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

    24-35mm f/2 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 27.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 primes in 1! Although a bit too heavy and too small of a range to be considered a walk-around lens, I love carrying this around in my kit for shoots. It essentially replaces 3 primes: a 24, 28, and 35, though I end up using mostly just the extremes of 24 and 35. If you feel that you don't need the extra stop at 1.4, I would recommend this lens over getting a 24 1.4 or a 28 1.8, but not the 35 1.4. This lens performs amazing as all the Art series lenses do, having extremely sharp images wide open at f/2. However, the vignetting is severe unless you stop it down, but that can easily be fixed with some post processing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb lens I have used it for the first time for the past three days for a shoot, and I am very pleased by the crispness and definition of this lens. I have only two issues: one it is very big and very heavy. I haven't taken it outdoors since my body is already heavy (1DsMkIII) and I think I won't take it on the road very often. But as a studio lens, it is perfect. Second issue is some fringing, but nothing PS can't take care off. Also, I'll have to either find its profile online or create one myself. I haven't used it enough to have noticed any other concerns but my first impression is very very good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bridge Between Primes. For weeks and weeks I was daunted by the task of finding that one lens that seemed to be mythical. I juggled around the idea of two primes, but the idea of adding more weight and items to an already cramped camera bag was very offsetting. A few days before purchasing, I was deciding between the Sigma 24 f/1.4 and the Sigma 35 f/1.4. My only gripes with another prime was the fact that the <50mm focal range on a full frame camera was uncharted territory for me. I was worried that the 35mm might have been to narrow and the 24mm too wide. I then found the Sigma 24-35 which took care of the uncertainty about focal range, the fact that the lens was capable of opening to a constant f/2 was the icing on the cake. The lens has been everything I could have dreamed from the tack-like sharpness to the great build quality and ergonomic feel. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who might be looking for a wide zoom with prime-like capabilities. I'm excited for the future as Sigma keeps producing top-notch quality to their products that stray from the ordinary focal-length-molding that it's other manufacturers adhere by.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is like a prime that zooms. GOLDEN VERSATILITY. When my business partner emailed me about this lens I read it while I was half asleep and later assumed that I'd dreamed it. 24-35mm at 2? It's like Sigma was reading my deepest lens desires and making them real. The reality of this lens is even better. I usually shoot with Canon's 35mm 1.4 L lens; this easily is as sharp, may focus faster and more accurately (it feels like it does, but I haven't made a scientific comparison), and as I rarely dip wider than 2 regardless it's an ideal lens for me. It's just like shooting my beloved 35... only I can go just a bit wider if I need to.The bokeh is gorgeous; the natural vignette is lovely; the applications for environmental portraiture are outstanding. I can't believe there aren't more reviews of this lens in general, let alone anything less than 5 stars; I would think that it could easily skyrocket to a great replacement for any number of lenses in a professional's kit: certainly the Canon 24mm and 35mm (as long as you don't *need* 1.4, which I personally do not), and perhaps even the 16-35 (as I personally don't love how warpy 16mm gets). I had been thinking of picking up Canon's 24mm prime for ages, and now I feel like I have two lenses in one.Actually, my business partner has been too possessive of this recently. I'll probably need to get a second copy to replace my Canon 35mm. Because B&H asks for the not so great parts about products when you review them: the lens hood twists much too easily (fixed by slapping on some gaffer tape), and the zoom is backwards from all of our other Canon gear. (Arrrrrgh that's annoying.)Build quality is SOLID, feels closer to a Zeiss than a Canon made lens. Optics have been razor sharp for engagement sessions, toddler/family sessions, weddings (including some very active dance floors), landscapes, astro (Milky Way and Northern Lights in Montana and Alaska; wider is definitely more useful for that application specifically, so we'll probably stick with the 16-35 for night skies), and portraits of our own families. Oh! And one more thing... the minimum focusing distance actually works for quasi-macro or at least very solid detail shots on wedding days, which is excellent when time is too short to pull out the macro lens (or when you want a more environmental shot). I loved the cufflink shot I got with this lens recently; was able to show stunning sharp detail on the cufflinks while still showcasing the groom's bowtie. This lens is stellar. I've been a prime shooter for a decade, and rarely deign to pick up anything that has a zoom ring. I can hands down say that this lens and Sigma have changed my mind. I'm a convert, and if I could have only one lens out of our arsenal it would probably be this.One last thing: to the reviewer who wishes for a lens that could go to 50mm at 2.8: stop. This is not the lens for you. Check out Canon's 24-70mm 2.8 II. It's a great lens for what it is; this is not that lens. (This is SO MUCH BETTER.)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great street photography lens Ive now had this lens for about a month. I also have the sigma 24 1.4 and the canon 35 1.4. There is no question that the sigma 24 1.4 is amazing. I much prefer it to the canon 35 prime. However, it is nice to have the versatility of the sigma wide zoom. I photographerd a wedding event in natural indoor light, during the day, and it was wonderful to be able to quickly and effortlessly adjust from 24 to 35 without switching lenses. I tend to favor 24, but there is indeed a huge difference between a 24 and 35 image. For street photography im also impressed. I spent all day yesterday walking through the streets of lower Manhattan with this lens. Again, I prefer the 24 focal length, but for some more up close portraiture, the 35 was nice to switch to. Environmental portaiture versus a closer distance. There is some inevitable vignetting when you use this lens wide open, which to me is the only reason to get a 2.0 lens. This is much more pronounced at 24. Based on my research, vignetting would occur with just about any lens of this nature, and in most cases, the vignetting is nice, as it draws attention to the subject. For street shoots its nice, for some indoors or museums it can get annoying though. All of this is easily correctable in lightroom though. I am really impressed by the quality of the lens. Though not as sharp as the 24 1.4 prime, which is almost magical, it is still very sharp. The lens itself looks very sleek in a matted black finish, so much so that every time I'm out, people ask me if I'm a professional.Overall, I'm quite pleased. For low light and evening street photography, I would still probably go with a 1.4, but the versatility of a 2.0 zoom for day life is appealing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Stunning image quality, superior optics and a bag of 3 primes all in one lens. What more could I ask for? Sharp wide open at f/2 with beautiful color rendering and fast autofocus for those who need it. My only complaint would be a tad too much vignetting for my liking, but that can be fixed with a click in Lightroom or PhotoShop. I prefer hefty lenses so the weight of this is far from a negative for me. This is my third Sigma lens (first in the Art series) and i'm continually impressed by the performance of this manufacturer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This is a beautiful lens to add to your arsenal. Perfectly wide and nice to have the flexibility to switch to 28mm or 35mm in the same lens. Not a huge difference but sometimes it's nice to change the perspective just a bit in a hurry without changing lenses. It's very fast and sharp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent build quality and IQ, but heavy Build quality and IQ are both excellent. If money were no object, I would have the Sigma 35mm and Sigma 24mm instead. They are very slightly sharper, brighter (f1.4), and lighter (at least individually) I purchased this for about the price of one of those, so it is a great value. It's an odd one for sure, not a prime, but very short zoom range. Think of it as a replacement for two or three primes. If the weight of slightly over 2 lbs puts you off, save your time and don't buy it.
