Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art Lens Review by Sony Alpha Blog

First review of new announced Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art lens for Sony E-mount (B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Focus Camera) now available online. Sony Alpha Blog has reviewed this lens and thought this lens is best standard zoom lens for Sony a7R IV.


  • Excellent to outstanding centre sharpness on A7RIV between 35 and 70mm
  • Moderate price
  • Excellent smooth blurry background
  • Very Good Bokeh Balls with no artifacts and well rounded
  • Very Good build quality and ergonomics
  • Very good color rendition
  • Weather sealed
  • Short focusing distance
  • Fast and reliable and silent AF
  • Very Low CA except at 70mm (moderate)


  • Visible distorsion and moderate vignetting but that should be corrected in a future Lightroom Lens profile (not worse than the Tamron or the Sony)
  • Resistance to flare is not a the level of what we have on Prime but Sony and Tamron have also same issue
  • Weight 830g (but lighter than the Sony 886g)
  • 24mm sharpness less good than Sony but roughly similar to Tamron at 28mm
  • Corners sharpness only reaching very good levels max and good at 50mm


  • None at this price point
