Another review for a highly interesting lens, made by Sigma. It’s the new Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art. The Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 is gathering a lot of attention, giving a great level of performance for the bucks.

There is little not to like of the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 ART lens. The reviewer at ePHOTOzine praises well controlled chromatic abberration and distortions, the sharpness and the smooth bokeh. From the conclusion:

This is a very attractive proposition for full frame users. A reasonable cost, a sound general performance, gorgeous bokeh and the potential for portrait shooting, low distortion, in fact, a variety of positive aspects that make for a quality end result. It’s a pity the weather resistance isn’t a bit stronger and the weaker performance at 70mm will not suit everyone, but even this may well delight others as the portrait and perhaps flower study potential is very real. Overall, recommended. Read the review…

I do not own the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8. I just played along with it for a day and I have to say my impression has been very good. At $1,299 it’s also sensibly less expensive than Canon’s counterpart.
