Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Reviews

Great Lens

By Carlos
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-10-28

Incredible angle of view, did not experience any distortion or CA. Ghosting occurs only in some back lit shots but not an issue. Weight is not a problem, auto focus is a little slow but manual mode on this lens is excellent. The large focusing ring is actually well designed and easy to work with and the lens cap makes it very safe to keep it from ever falling over. Beautifully constructed and comes with a well padded carrying case. As a Master Photographer-PPA I highly recommend this Lens.

Beautifully crafted, Exceptional Performance

I purchased this lens to use with my Canon 1Dx and 5DSR cameras. The lens, though heavy, balances very well for both cameras. The images are simply striking in terms of color accuracy, resolution and contrast. As with other ART lenses I own, Sigma produces lenses that are as excellent or superior to the lenses offered by most of the major SLR manufacturers in Japan.

Super sharp

Really nice addition to my other sigma lenses. I wanted a super wide for rocket launches and landscape photography. Didn’t want to spend 3 grand on the canon. Didn’t disappoint. Images are every bit as sharp and crisp as my Canon L lenses. But it is huge and heavy. I would buy it again.

Pure Awesomeness !

Simply put. Outstanding ! in every way . Doing a lot of scenic s and sunrises iv'e always used my Canon 17-40 f/4 so , in comparison this lens delivers all that was promised and more. I wanted something a little wider without going fish eye and yet zero distortion . Sigma nailed it ! Heavy ? yes...twice the weight of my Canon 17-40 ...any regrets ? NO . For the money it's worth every cent especially when compared to other lenses with the same parameters .

Great lens

although the price is worth every penny paid. perfect images and with absurd angles. As an amateur photographer Im having a lot of fun taking pictures with my 5D Mark IV and this lens. really a little heavy but nothing too much.

Perfect

If you like visiting historical places like Colonial Williamsburg and getting great shots inside buildings this lens will serve you well. Of course it will serve well for landscape also. The build quality is excellent and of course the optical quality is excellent also. So often people will say, “it’s a good lens for the money.” What does that mean? Pixel peepers can probably find fault with any lens but for folks who like to view a photograph in its entirety this is a great lens at any price. An added benefit - this lens is solid enough and heavy enough to make a good weapon, albeit an expensive one, if the need arises.
