Pre-orders have now started for the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art lens for Sony FE.
In the US it has been listed for $1,099.00 and in the UK it will cost you £1,049.00.
The new 24-70mm joins the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG DN Art (#afflinks Adorama, Wex Photo) as the second of Sigma’s zooms designed exclusively for full-frame mirrorless cameras. See my guide to Sigma Lenses for Sony E-Mount.
The 24-70mm is constructed of 19 elements, including low dispersion, special low dispersion and aspherical glass. Sigma’s ‘Super Multi-Layer’ and ‘Nano Porous’ coatings have been applied to reduce flare and ghosting. A stepping motor drives the autofocus and the minimum focus distance is just 18cm (7.1″).
The lens is also weather-sealed, features a brass bayonet mount and uses 82mm filters. The Sony E-mount version weighs 830g / 29.0oz, has a diameter of 87.8mm and a length of 124.9mm.
Availability is planned for mid-November 2019 and pricing will be announced very soon.
The Sigma 24-70mm will go up against Tamron’s very popular 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD lens (#afflinks Adorama, Amazon, Wex Photo) along with Sony’s own FE 24-70 F2.8 GM lens (#afflinks Adorama, Amazon, Wex Photo).
