Photography Blog published its full Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN II Art review, which you can read in full here or check out the excerpt below:

Sigma have taken one of our favourite standard zooms for E-mount… Offering faster auto-focusing, more features, closer focusing and better image quality than the original version, plus the welcome addition of an aperture ring, this is definitively the best all-round standard zoom lens for Sony Alpha… In terms of its optical performance, it continues to be tack-sharp in the centre throughout all of the zoom range, but is now also acceptably sharp even wide-open at f/2.8 at the very edges of the frame. It also produces some very nice bokeh effects thanks to the 11-blade iris diaphragm. There is still some some vignetting at wide-open apertures, barrel distortion at 24mm and slight pincushioning at 70mm, but all of this can be corrected either in-camera or during post-processing… the auto-focus system has been revamped with the incorporation of the very latest linear motor HLA (High-response Linear Actuator). This lens features fast, near-silent, reliable auto-focusing… It offers a high level of build quality…
