Photography Blog: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 Review


Photography Blog released its review of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 and it is very positive, but reviews have varied so I wonder if Sigma might be having some sample variation problems. The most critical was by lens tips, but reviews like Sony Alpha Blog considered the lens to be more middling.

The new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art is the best all-round standard zoom lens for Sony Alpha full-frame cameras, narrowly beating the excellent Sony FE 24-70mm f/2.8 GM, Tamron 28-75mm F2.8 Di III RXD and Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS…. It’s half the price of the Sony FE 24-70mm whilst offering comparable image and build quality. It’s a little more expensive than the Tamron 28-75mm, but out-performs it optically…. if we had to choose one standard zoom… we’d pick the new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art… it’s tack-sharp in the centre throughout all of the zoom range, with sharpness only falling off a little at f/2.8 at the very edges of the frame… nice bokeh effects… some vignetting at wide-open apertures, barrel distortion at 24mm and slight pincushioning at 70mm… very quick AF… Build quality is excellent…

Overall, the new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DG DN Art is a very well-built, very fast standard zoom lens that delivers superb image quality at a frankly unbelievable price, and is therefore a more than worth winner of our highest award.
