Roger Cicala of Lens Rentals posted MTF charts and other lab analysis data of the Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 Art lens.

In the conclusion he writes:

I said at the beginning that I expected this lens to be at least as good as the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8 and better than the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8. I think it’s pretty apparent that while they are all within hair splitting distance of each other at 14mm, the Sigma is the best at 24mm. Optically, this one is worth the money and the best overall 14-24mm zoom. There are lots of other things that go into choosing a lens, but at these very wide angles, things like autofocus speed are not big points.

That being said, if you’re buying a 14mm lens to be a 14mm prime (and some of you are), then all three of these do very well. Honestly, though, for a little more money you should consider the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 Art if that’s the case. If you’re thinking of matching a 14-24-70mm f/2.8 to collect the whole focal length set, then the Sigma is the best optical choice.

Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art and Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art Receive Prestigious TIPA World Awards 2018

April 19, 2018 – The Sigma Corporation is pleased to announce it has won two TIPA World Awards 2018 for its wide-aperture ultra-wide-angle 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art zoom lens and its large-diameter 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art zoom lens suitable for any shoot.

TIPA’s Best DSLR Wide Angle Zoom Lens Award for Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art:

A Perfect Match for Today’s High-Resolution Cameras
Mountable on Canon, Nikon and Sigma cameras, and compatible with the Sigma MC-11 Sony E-mount converter, the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art lens delivers a high level of sharpness with near zero distortion, along with high-speed and high-accuracy AF that matches up perfectly with today’s high-resolution cameras. The lens contains three FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, three SLD (Super Low Dispersion) glass elements, and three aspherical lens elements, including an 80mm high precision molded glass aspherical element. It has special sealing at numerous points for dust- and splash-proof protection. Thoroughly modern, the Nikon mount features a brand new electromagnetic diaphragm; the Canon mount is compatible with the Canon Lens Aberration Correction function.

A Premium “All-Round” Zoom

The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG OS HSM Art offers many advantages, including a constant aperture throughout its range, an optical stabilization system, and outstanding bokeh effects due to its 9-blade, rounded-diaphragm, 37cm (15”) close-focusing capability.

Photography Blog reviewed the new Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 ART lens.

Excerpts from the conclusion:

The 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art is a surprising, but very welcome, addition to Sigma’s ever growing Art range of premium lenses, offering a faster aperture of f/2.8 at the expense of 2mm in focal length when compared to the very similar Sigma 12-24mm F4 DG HSM Art lens, whilst being cheaper than it’s slightly older sibling (at least in the US anyway) and additionally offering much better weather-sealing.

Image quality is excellent. Chromatic aberrations are very well controlled, bokeh is surprisingly good despite the ultra-wide-angle nature of the lens, barrel distortion is impressively well controlled, and the Super Multi-Layer coating successfully prevents contrast loss attributable to flare.

[…]  the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art’s build quality is once again reassuringly excellent, although it’s also one of the heaviest wide-angle zooms that we’ve ever tested. Auto-focusing is quiet and quick […] Read the review…
