This versatile standard zoom lens was made for full-frame Canon cameras, but it’s compatible with crop-sensors, providing an equivalent focal range of 38.4–112mm. It’s part of Sigma’s Art Line, so it’s designed to bring out the artistic qualities of every photo and video. The rounded nine-blade, constant f/2.8 maximum aperture is constructed from fluorine-coated polycarbonate and carbon feather film, making the action smoother during fast, continuous shooting. You’ll be able to make good use of available light, will have excellent control over depth of field and selective focus, and will get lovely bokeh in any out of focus areas.
Nineteen lens elements are divided into 14 groups and include four aspherical elements, which control distortion and spherical aberrations. Ghosting and lens flare won’t be a problem, even in the brightest light or backlight, thanks to Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating, which coats each lens element. You’ll get sharp, accurate photos that are true-to-color with high contrast.
Autofocus is speedy, precise, and silent due to Sigma’s Hyper Sonic Motor and Canon-optimized algorithm. Full-time manual focus is available with a simple twist of the focus ring. There’s also an optical image stabilization system, which resolves up to four stops of camera shake during low light and handheld shooting.
All of this comes in a rugged package. The body is made from Sigma’s Thermally Stable Composite material, which gives the lens high-performance capabilities in even the most unforgiving temperatures. A brass bayonet mount has been rubber-sealed, so its splash- and dust-resistant, and the front lens element is water- and oil-resistant.
The Sigma 24–70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art for Canon has an 84.1° to 34.3° angle of view, a maximum magnification of 0.21x, a minimum focusing distance of 1.21 feet, and a macro reproduction ratio of 1:4.8. It’s compatible with 82mm front filters and Sigma’s USB Dock, which allows you to set lens characteristics and update the firmware.
