Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Overview

Fast Aperture Wide Angle to Portrait-Length Lens
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. It features a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture that is well-suited for working in available light conditions and provides greater control over depth of field when using shallow depth of field techniques.
Full-Frame and APS-C Compatible Autofocus Lens
  • Standard zoom is designed for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C-format models, where it will provide a 36-105mm equivalent focal length range.
  • Integrated stepping motor realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance.
Sophisticated Optical Design
  • Six F Low Dispersion (FLD) and two Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements markedly reduce chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range for improved clarity and color accuracy.
  • Three aspherical elements control spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Super Multi-Layer and Nano Porous Coatings have 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.
    Close Focus with Pleasing Bokeh
    • At the wide-angle end of the zoom range, a minimum focusing distance of 7.1" is possible with a maximum magnification of 1:2.9 to suit working with close-up subjects.
    • At the telephoto end, the minimum focusing distance is 1.25' with a maximum magnification of 1:4.5.
    • The rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.
    Lens Features
    • Integrated AF-L button can be programmed to adjust various shooting settings and the lens also features a dedicated AF/MF switch and a zoom lock switch to prevent the barrel from accidentally extended.
    • Integrated stepping motor achieves quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance.
    Durable
    • A chrome-plated brass bayonet lens mount affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.
    • Rubber seals are incorporated in the mount's design to render it dust- and splash-resistant, making it ready to create images even on location in harsh environments.

      Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Reviews

      Great on the SL2-S

      At least with the Leica SL2-S, there were no focus delays as some reviewers seemed to imply. The lens is crisp, versatile and has plenty of 3D POP. Bought with trepidation thinking I would probably return it, now I can't live without it and will investigate the Sigma primes.

      This lens is INCREDIBLE

      Sharpness, fast autofocus, image quality. YES! This lens have changed the game for me. I'm in love with it.

      Sharp but heavy

      Nice standard 24-70 zoom. Image quality with an A7iii is fantastic, sharp by my standards at 2.8 but admittedly I'm not really a pixel peeper. It's a bit bulky and heavy, but this has been living on my camera since purchasing it. No issues with dust so far. Will probably continue to be my walk around lens for the foreseeable future.

      Very good and versatile lens

      This was the first lens I got as soon as I purchased my Sony FX3. It is totally worth it. Very versatile and reliable. I have used it for photos as well as video and it works just perfect and the focal rate is really optimal for most things. If you are looking to have just one lens, this would be my recommendation. Focusing motors are silent and focus is very fast and reliable too. The weight is good and it is weather sealed so perfect for mild weather conditions. I 100% recommend this piece of glass.

      why pay more for a Sony lens?

      I am honestly so happy with this Sigma lens. Great zoom and auto-focus, as light weight as something could be for the quality it provides. easily locks with my Sony A7iii. I'm always nervous about the lens caps but this one feels secure.

      Amazing every day lens

      This lens stays on my camera 90% of the time. It is almost equal in sharpness and image quality to my Sigma Art primes, just not quite as fast. Love the 24-70 range and Sigma build quality. After getting this baby, my Tamron has been sitting on the shelf, collecting dust.

      Almost perfect

      I bought this for my new Sony A7III. I would have given this a 5-star review except for the fact that it is as long as and weighs as much as my Sigma 24-70 I bought for my Sony a-77 (with the converter I purchased). The only reason I upgraded was an annoying focus problem in video mode with the old lens. That said, the focus is fast as very accurate and has performed flawlessly since I received it. I recently took it to Chicago and the camera/lens combination became an extension of my hands. I didn't have to even think about the lens. It just did its thing. I'm very pleased with this aspect!

      Very impressed

      My first sigma lens. I am blown away by the quality. It's a hefty lens and that took some getting used to.

      Can this lens be mounted on Leica CL? CL has a pretty small body, I'm wondering if anyone used this on a CL, and how that feels physically. Thanks.
      Asked by: Yi
      Yes, it can be mounted to a CL and will pretty much be a little awkward to hold on the CL.

      Asked by: pavankumar
      The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Lens for Leica L will not work on the Panasonic Lumix G9 Mirrorless Camera. The Panasonic G9 uses the Micro Four Thirds lens mount, and this lens uses the Leica L mount.

      I just switched to Panasonic. Will this work for the Lumix S5? That's also an L-mount but I don't know if this is the same thing.

      Yes to my knowledge the L mount is for both panasonic and leica mirrorless. I am using it on a Leica SL and am very pleased with the performance.
