Posted on May 26, 2024 by Pro Moviemaker

Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN II | Art offers improved resolving power, compact design, and advanced features

Sigma has announced its latest flagship lens, the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN II | Art, which builds upon its predecessor with significant enhancements, aiming to deliver superior performance for both photographers and filmmakers.

Key enhancements and features:

  • Improved Resolving Power: The SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN II | Art boasts enhanced resolving power across the entire zoom range, providing sharper and more detailed images.
  • Compact and Lightweight Design: This new lens is approximately 7% smaller and 10% lighter than the previous model, making it more portable and easier to handle during long shooting sessions.
  • Advanced Autofocus System: The lens features a redesigned autofocus motor, the High-response Linear Actuator (HLA), which enables high-speed and precise autofocus performance. This improvement is particularly beneficial for capturing fast-moving subjects and achieving accurate focus in various shooting conditions.
  • Functional Enhancements: The addition of an aperture ring offers photographers more direct control over exposure settings, enhancing the shooting experience. This feature is particularly useful for those who prefer manual adjustments over camera-based controls.

Versatility for creative potential:

The 24-70mm F2.8 zoom range makes this lens highly versatile, suitable for a wide range of photography genres including landscapes, portraits, and street photography. Its constant F2.8 aperture ensures consistent performance in low-light conditions and provides beautiful background blur (bokeh) for more artistic shots.

Product availability and pricing:

The SIGMA 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN II | Art will be available for purchase from 30 May 2024 for £1,179. Photographers and filmmakers can look forward to utilising this high-performance tool to elevate their creative work.
