24-105mm F4.0 DG OS HSM

From the Manufacturer

24-105mm F4 DG (OS)* HSM | A

Exceptional usability

The Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM Art lens is a premium lens designed for full frame cameras and will also work with APS-C sensors with an effective increase in focal length. The 24-105mm F4 is a highly versatile focal range and staple everyday lens. With the increasing resolution power of new sensors, it is designed to bring out the true potential of evolving camera technology. Sigma’s 24-105mm f4 includes proprietary Sigma technology including our Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) which ensures fast, quiet and accurate autofocusing as well as our Optical Stabilizer (OS) which compensates for camera shake. A 9 blade rounded diaphragm creates beautiful background blur, while FLD and SLD glass elements compensate for various aberrations, distortion and curvature. The use of Thermally Composite Material (TSC) reduces size and weight and as part of the new Global Vision design, it is compatible with the Sigma USB dock for further customization and the new Mount Conversion Service.

USB Dock Compatibility

Sigma has developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

Sharpness is excellent.

It's far better than my kit Nikkor 24-85 f/3.5-4.5 ED VR zoom.

Don't get me wrong, the lens is excellent, but it isn't amazing like the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 APS-C lens or the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens. Perhaps one cannot expect miracles from a more than 4x lens. Nonetheless, the lens is noticeably better than my 24-85G and has a longer range, so I will almost certainly keep it.

The lens is big--but not too big--and very heavy. The difference between it and my 18-35G (feather light) and 24-85G (light) is astonishing. Nonetheless, I don't believe it is too heavy to carry around all day. Also, I prefer its "squat" not-to-long size to the longer, skinnier 70-200mm F/4 VR. It balances better at the end of an FX camera, and improves focus at very slow shutter speeds (yes, even with the excellent VR). I also prefer the heavier Canon 70-300 L size to the lighter but longer 70-200 L f/4 IS size, but that's a different topic. However, you need to try it before making the decision for your own personal use.

Okay, here's the lowdown on IQ.

At 24mm

At a distance (25meters) In the center the Sigma is sharper than the 18-35mm wide open and much sharper than the 24-85mm. However, the 18-35mm catches up and even surpasses the Sigma on the edges. The 24-85 has the worst edges. However, the Sigma gets even sharper stopping down to f/5.6 and has decent to good edges at f/8. I really don't see much improvement in the Nikon pair from stopping down, so this is a big positive for the Sigma. Closer in (3meters), the Sigma still maintains its advantage, but differences are just not as noticeable.

At 35mm

The Sigma seems to be at its best. The difference between it and the Nikon zooms is even more apparent, and the Sigma just might be sharper at 35mm than at 24mm.

I, like many photographers cringe at the idea of buying a Sigma lens, however this thing rises to the top quickly. I needed a workhorse wedding reception lens and couldn't bare the idea of paying $2600 for Canon's 24-70 L. The gentlemen at the camera store whose opinions I respect, told me he hasn't sold a Canon L glass in the 24-70 or the 35 prime since the Sigma Art Series lenses were released. He was so confident I would be happy that he sold me the Sigma lens and told me if I didn't like it I could return it no questions asked and he would eat the difference and trade me even steven for the Canon L glass. That's a pretty strong statement. Well...he was right. 2.8 would be nice and a Art series 24-70 would be nice, but for the price this baby delivers. I don't shoot below 4, 4.5 very often anyway, but it is nice to have that little bit extra when needed. That being said though, even stopped all the way down it's sharp. Sharp in the center and only slight soft at the edges, but only a pro like myself would notice it. At 4.5 or 5 it's sharp edge to edge. A bit of vignetting but nothing too bad and no worse than the Canon version. The OS works great. It's definitely heavy though. But heavy lenses don't bother me. It's a free workout! With good light this focuses much faster than the Canon version. In low light it does struggle to focus but not so much that it causes me problems. What surprised me most though was color reproduction. My experience with third party lenses hasn't been good in terms of color, but this delivered. I have a bag filled with L glass and have become accustomed to that "secret sauce" in the glass for beautiful color reproduction. This Sigma lens has solid and strait forward colors.Read more ›

Sigma appears to be on an entirely new path. This lens feels like it was designed by a Formula 1 engineer. It is smooth, accurate, sharp, a little contrasty (maybe adding to how sharp images appear). I traded my Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS in on it and can't be more pleased. It uses 82mm filters which will cost more than most lenses. The size will probably get more attention, but really anything with a lens hood gets attention, sometimes unwanted. Zoom action feels smooth and solid, maybe heavy to some. Focus accuracy and speed is on par with the Canon lens. There appear to be no downsides to this lens. Get it and enjoy!

I've had this lens for a month or so now. I took it to Tokyo and Kyoto on a trip and took nearly 1000 shots with it. I must say, I am thoroughly impressed with this lens. The image quality is superb. I shoot with a Nikon D7100, and it is very sharp corner to corner on a DX body from 24-80mm. Above that to 105, image quality may start to soften slightly, but it's negligible. I've never shot the Canon 24-105 or the Nikon 24-120 to be honest, but after extensive research and reviews, I settled on this over the Nikon 24-120, and I'm very happy with it. The build quality is tops. The lens is a bit on the heavy side, but you're getting quality glass, and I had no issues carrying it around all day with my BlackRapid sling. A couple things to be aware of... first, the lens focuses backward (counterclockwise, like Canon) compared to the normal Nikon clockwise focusing fashion. It was a little weird at first but you get used to it, no biggie at all. Second, there's been reported issues with Sigma lenses and the Nikon D7100 (and maybe other Nikon's as well) concerning image review. With the Sigma lens attached, you cannot hold the arrow button down to pan around an image for review, it requires clicking each time. Also, if you have a screen timeout set for 4 seconds, the image review will stay on for about 1 minute with this lens on. Once a Nikon lens is put on, your image review functions go back to normal, even when looking at images taken with the Sigma lens. It's a known issue, and apparently Sigma isn't planning to release a firmware update for it (I have no idea why...). It's a minor nuisance, and in my opinion, the quality of the lens outweighs those cons. I'll be interested to see if the problem persists with my new D610 when it arrives. Regardless, I still think the lens is a very worthy standard zoom that can outclass both the Nikon 24-85 and the 24-120 in both image quality and construction quality, and also the aging Canon 24-105! Do yourself a favor and check one out!
