The Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art lens for Nikon is an ultra-wide zoom with a fast aperture designed with the artist in mind. Working photographers will appreciate how well this lens does with architecture and landscapes, but it really hits its stride when applied in artistic situations that call for an ultra-wide zoom.
And, like all lenses in this line, it has been rigorously tested to ensure that it always performs.
Advanced optics are standard on every Sigma Art lens, and the 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM is no exception. Built with 17 lens elements divided into 11 groups, it features three aspherical elements which significantly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion. Three Special Low Dispersion elements eliminate chromatic aberrations and color fringing, and Sigma’s Super Multi-Layer Coating takes care of lens flare and ghosting. What you’ll get are super sharp images that are clear with high contrast—no matter what the lighting conditions.
HSM stands for this lens’s Hyper Sonic Motor autofocus system, which is quick and seamless and makes it an excellent lens for video. An autofocus algorithm finds better, smoother focus, but you can always override the AF and work manually via the convenient focusing ring, which allows you to work with precision. The aperture has nine rounded blades, creates lovely bokeh, and maintains its f/2.8 iris across the zoom range.
This lens is particularly well-suited to working outdoors since it’s made from a Thermally Stable Composite material that gives it the ability to perform in a wide range of temperatures. It’s also dust and weather sealed, and the front lens element has been treated with a water and oil repellent.
The Sigma 14-24mm f/2.8 DG HSM Art for Nikon is compatible with Nikon F-mount full-frame cameras. Sigma’s USB dock for Nikon F Lenses makes it possible for you to change some parameters via Sigma Optimization Pro software.
