The Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 AF DG DN Art Lens utilises the highest tier of “Art Zoom” performance to deliver a powerful lens that is adaptable to different shooting environments and photographic styles.

The lens’ size and weight has been greatly reduced by exploiting the advances made in mirrorless camera systems. This had no effect on the high-resolution and uniformity visible from the centre to the periphery, across the entire zoom range. Whether you are an advanced amateur photographer or a hardened professional this lens will meet your demands.

Designed for the Latest Mirrorless Cameras - The Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 AF DG DN Art Lens has been designed for use with the latest mirrorless camera systems; notably L-Mount and Sony-E Mount cameras. Thanks to this, it can exploit the advances made in said mirrorless cameras making it suitable for a wide array of photographic genres.

Whatever the situation, the lens will deliver its best performance when used by an advanced amateur photographer or a professional. The AFL button is a great example of the combined effect of the lens and the mirrorless camera.

A range of functions can be delegated to the AFL button on the lens from the camera body; increasing the operability during shooting. The ease of focus is assured thanks to the introduction of the stepping motor and the cutting-edge algorithm which effectively achieves a balance between acceleration and quietness of the AF drive.

Additionally, the lens works with Eye-Detection AF which has been frequently adopted in mirrorless cameras; more so than DSLRs. This is great for high-precision focusing during portrait photography.

Understanding: Aperture

Aperture is the opening in a camera lens that controls how much light enters the camera. It's measured in f-stops like f/2.8 or f/8. Lower f-stop numbers mean wider openings, letting in more light and creating a shallow depth of field (blurry background). Higher f-stop numbers mean smaller openings, letting in less light and creating a larger depth of field (more of the scene in focus). Aperture also affects the quality of out-of-focus areas in the image (bokeh).

Understanding: Lens Types

Different lenses have different purposes to achieve different styles of images, some popular ones include:
Prime Lens: Fixed focal length, sharp images, great for portraits and dark settings.
Zoom Lens: Variable focal length, versatile for different shots and everyday use..
Wide-Angle Lens: Captures wide scenes like landscapes.
Telephoto Lens: Magnifies distant subjects, ideal for sports & wildlife.
Macro Lens: Perfect for close-up photography of small subjects.
Fisheye Lens: Ultra-wide perspective, creates unique images.

Understanding: Lens Mounts

Different camera brands use different lens mounts, which are like connectors that attach lenses to camera bodies. Each mount is specific to a particular brand and camera series. For example, Canon uses the EF and RF mounts, Nikon uses the F mount, Sony uses the E mount for its mirrorless cameras. These mounts dictate which lenses are compatible with which cameras. Some brands offer adapters to use lenses from other systems, but it's essential to ensure compatibility for proper functionality and autofocus performance.

Understanding: Manual and Autofocus

Manual focus and autofocus are two ways to adjust the sharpness of a camera lens. With manual focus, you turn a ring on the lens to bring the subject into focus yourself, giving you full control over what appears sharp in the image. Autofocus, on the other hand, relies on the camera's built-in technology to automatically adjust the focus for you, usually by detecting contrast or phase differences in the scene. Autofocus can be convenient, especially for fast-moving subjects or when you need to capture a quick shot, whereas manual focus allows for precise adjustments and creative control over the final image.
