Building on this concept, SIGMA has developed the new SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art for 35mm full frame sensor. It allows photographers to carry one lens to do the work of three fixed focal length lenses, a 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm — with F2 brightness and top optical performance. One package delivers flexible functionality and high convenience. In particular, at the 24mm and 35mm focal lengths, this lens offers the performance that is equivalent to that of two prime lenses in the Art line. Instead of changing one high-performance fixed focal length lens for another, simply zoom. This is a new zoom lens for 35mm full frame sensor SLRs that offer the quality of a fixed focal length lens at various angles of view.
A large-diameter zoom lens covering the full frame image sensor
Optical performance equivalent to a fixed focal length lens throughout the entire zoom range. These are the concepts the SIGMA 24-35mm F2 DG HSM | Art embodies. It covers three of the most commonly used prime lenses, 24mm, 28mm, and 35mm all in one lens. In order to achieve an attractive bokeh effect at wide aperture, we have developed the world’s first zoom lens for the 35mm full frame sensor with an F2 aperture value throughout the zoom range.
Outstanding optical performance of the fixed focal length lenses in SIGMA’s Art line
By minimizing aberration using the latest design technology and know-how that has been accumulated from lens development over many years, this lens achieves astonishing rendering performance, even in the corners, with ultra-high resolution. Whilst featuring higher resolution around the focus point, the lens ensures a smooth and natural bokeh effect. Both high definition rendering without color aberration and natural bokeh expression are possible, even from the maximum aperture.
Covering the range of three fixed focal length wide-angle lenses
Delivering excellent functionality and convenience, one lens offers the equivalent quality of three high-performance fixed focal length lenses at F2 brightness: 24mm, 28mm and 35mm. With a minimum focusing distance of 28cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.4, this lens is suitable for close-up shooting, portraits with an attractive bokeh and deep-focus landscape photography. Photographers have access to the angle of view equivalent to that of three wide-angle lenses without having to switch them. While achieving the desired background effect can be difficult with a conventional wide-angle lens, the large diameter of this lens allows photographers to open the aperture wide and use the shallow focus to achieve stunning results.
