Digital Camera World Verdict

Continuing the trend set by previous Sigma Art-line lenses, this 24mm prime is beautifully built and delivers exceptional image quality. It’s a fully professional-grade lens that’s available at a much more affordable price than the equivalent own-brand lenses from camera manufacturers. If you like shooting at 24mm and want something faster than your standard zoom, look no further.

The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art follows suit with the company’s previous 35mm and 50mm Art-line lenses, maintaining the same f/1.4 aperture rating, while extending the wide-angle viewing potential. Compared with the 63.4-degree viewing angle of the 35mm lens, this one stretches the envelope to a much more generous 84.1 degrees (measured on the diagonal, using a full-frame body).
