A wide and fast Canon EF-mount prime, the 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens is a member of the highly regarded Art line of Sigma's Global Vision Series and is characterized by its advanced optical construction and robust physical design. The combination of three "F" Low Dispersion (FLD) elements and four Special Low Dispersion elements help to achieve a marked reduction in chromatic aberrations, while a pair of aspherical elements, with one positioned in the rear of the lens, minimize a variety of additional distortions and aberrations. The 15-element-in-11-group optical design is poised to deliver consistent peripheral brightness and sharpness, even when working at the bright f/1.4 maximum aperture. A Super Multi Coating has been applied to lens elements, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and color fidelity.

Complementing the optical performance is an equally adept Hyper Sonic Motor, which provides fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance. This focusing motor also enables full-time manual focus override at any time just by rotating the focus ring for refined manual control. Nine rounded diaphragm blades contribute to pleasing out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques, and the lens is also compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuned control over focusing parameters and other lens characteristics.

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 prime 24mm focal length offers a versatile wide-angle perspective when used on full-frame sensors, making it ideal for landscape, nature, interior, and architectural photography. When used with a APS-C-format sensor, the lens offers a 38.4mm equivalent focal length.
Fast f/1.4 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, with one in the rear of the optical design, correct for sagittal coma flare, distortion, and axial chromatic aberration, while also enabling full use of the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture with maintained peripheral brightness and sharpness.
Three FLD and four 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 bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability.
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.

    24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon EF is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Great Art Lens from Sigma Sigma has upped its game the Art series of lenses. The 24mm f/1.4 being their latest entry. This lens was obviously more difficult for Sigma to design that their very successful 35mm Art. The sharpness at the edges of the frame is not quite as good as the 35mm at wide apertures. Also, many of us Sigma fans were hoping this lens would be a hit for wide field astrophotography. Alas, the Coma performance at f 1.4 and f 2.0 leaves something to be desired; however by f 2.8 things get a lot better. For non star photography this will still be a dream lens for many low light shooters. I've compared the 24mm with a few other wide angle lenses in terms of coma performance. I've put this on my web site (can't be listed here).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful lens which requires careful use for best results A beautifully made product with a very solid feel. It is heavy, but that is rather positive in this case. I have relied professionally on Canon L lenses with IS and was worried that there might be some blur in low light, but in use I found the heft of the weight made it easy to produce extremely sharp lenses. In landscapes I found that detail was superb even with hand held bracketed HDR use. The lens is very sensitive and I've found that reviewing the result your metering is crucial. If you leave the setting at default, the image may be much darker or lighter than experienced with other lenses. You'll find that using spot metering will produce a better image in shots where normally overall metering would be a default.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never looking back to Canon L glass... I bought this used and as a professional photographer and I can say this is among the best dslr lenses I have ever used. Sharp, fast, beautiful tonal transitions, accurate focus (once calibrated with the use dock) and WAY more solid construction that the Canon lenses. It's a tank, my only gripe is I don't think it's weather proof and for someone who has the highest grade professional canon cameras that I can shoot in a tsunami, these lenses should have the same weatherproofing. But the image is even better than the canon L, no doubt. Excited to try all the other lenses in this line!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ART series is on point! I initially got this lens to replace my old Canon 28 1.8, and wanted something a little wider than 35 for socials / events. I'll be the first to admit this lens hasn't got the fastest focus speeds in low light. It can be a bit hit and miss sometimes. But if you're a videographer too, you can't say no to its crisp low light abilities! At 1.4, when it focuses just the way you want it to, it is one of the sharpest lenses I've ever used / on par with Sigma's 50 art. At 1.4 it is a beast of a lens with beautiful bokeh! It is a fairly heavy lens but has a wonderful build quality. While like many I chose the Sigma ART series for a cheap alternative to Canon, make no mistake, you are not sacrificing quality for cost. The 24, just like the 50 ART is a serious competitor to Canon's range. There is no doubt, that I will be getting the Sigma 35 to round out my set of primes!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Canon 24L II Just got this lens for about a week now and I've been playing with it a lot. My main concern was about the quality in comparison to Canon and Rokinon/Samyang 24 f/1.4 equivalent. Well, no problem, I'm very happy with this lens. Center sharpness is similar to the Canon but side and corner resolution is better. Has strong vigneting wide open but this is a common problem with ALL low aperture wide angle lens. Not more than Canon. Rokinson lens falls behind in term of sharpness but has a the best CA control overall. I found some review online saying that the Sigma has very poor CA, similar to Canon but I personnaly did some astro photo, shooting at the stars wide open and I didn't notice much CA even in Corner. It s all gone after f4. This is better than Canon in my opinion. As for the auto-focus, Canon performs a bit faster but I plan to use this lens an manual setting. Conclusion Sigma vs Canon Vs Rokinnon >>Price: Rokinon wins in aboslute term but on price vs quality ratio, Sigma offers the best deal. Canon is twice the price of the Sigma and only brings a faster auto focus weather sealing. >>Sharpness: Center is similar between Canon & Sigma but much better overall for Sigma. Rokinon is last. >>CA: Rokinon is the best but Sigma level of CA is acceptable for me and in the same range of Canon (DXO say that Sigma is better than Canon) >> Vigneting: strong wide open like all other 24 1.4 lenses (but it s easy to correct in post) >>Autofocus: good performance, a bit slower than Canon. Rokinon is manual only. >> Distorsion: low, same as the other lenses >> Image quality: this is very subjective but contrast and color are very good. Similar to Canon. The bokeh is ok, I don t really use wide angle lenses for that. >> Build quality: weight the same and feel great but Canon leads with weather sealing (none on Sigma). All the lenses have a 77mm filter thread. >> QC: Canon is very good on QC, the Sigma 24 1.4 is new so it s hard to say but all the latest ART lenses by Sigma are very well made. Rokinon and Samyang on the other hand are regularly cited to have QC issues (decentring,etc) My conclusion: Sigma is the best Deal for me, a bit more pricy than Rokinon Samyang but much better optical quality (except for CA). Sigma is half the price of Canon for the same level of results (slower autofocus than Canon but better sharpness).

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lens for FF and APS-C I use this lens as an upgrade from a 28mm f/1.8 on a Canon 7D. The biggest changes that I saw were incredible sharpness and better color and contrast. Compared to the 28mm, it is much better constructed at the price of the weight, of course.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I got a bad one, I will try again. It did not acquire proper focus beyond 4 feet. I used the Sigma USB Dock and I was able to calibrate 0.25' (+7), 0.34' (+6), 0.6 (+6)', Infinity took me all the way to +20 and it still did not acquire focus correctly. I properly calibrated Sigma 50 Art with the USB Dock and it is now one of my best focusing lenses. This one is just defective. I will buy again to see if I get a better copy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best 24mm You Can Buy This lens is sharper than the Canon 24mm f/1.4 L II. Yes. Don't believe me? Look at the sharpness comparison here: I bought this lens shortly after it came out about a year and a half ago along with my Canon 6D, which was my jump to full frame. I'm a landscape photographer that loves to shoot in low light as well (events, concerts, astrophotography) so I wanted something wide and fast, but also sharp. Since the release of this lens Sigma has also released a 20mm f/1.4, but it is not as sharp AND it doesn't accept threaded filters. I use polarizer, neutral-density, and graduated neutral density filters all the time, so this was a must for me. I will say that this lens has truly outperformed its expectations and it's my main, go to lens. First thing first: it's incredibly sharp. Even at f/1.4, the sharpness is very impressive. It's barely a noticeable difference from being stopped down. I have spent many nights photographing the Milky Way with this lens and it is amazing every time. Since you can shoot at f/1.4, you can get excellent Milky Way shots at ISO 1600 or lower, which is fantastic because it means barely any noise. Even with a lens at f/2.8, you'd have to shoot at ISO 6400 to get the equivalent light in, assuming your shutter speed is the same. That's a huge difference. Regarding people's concerns about weather sealing on the Canon and no weather sealing on the Sigma: I honestly believe that even though Sigma doesn't advertise it as such, this lens is very well sealed. I have used it in the rain many times, including in a steady Oregon rain for hours, and never had even the slightest issue. Of course, you want to keep it as dry as you possibly can just in case, but this lens is tough. It's not going to let any water in for awhile. I've attached a couple of images of the Milky Way below, taken with this lens and my Canon 6D at 24mm, f/1.4, ISO 2500, 15 second exposure. Both images are completely unedited and the second image is a 100% crop so you can see how sharp it is, even at ISO 2500.
