24mm F1.4 DG HSM | A
SIGMA Art Goes Wide
The Sigma 24 millimeter 1.4 DG HSM Art is a state of the art wide-angle prime lens designed for Full Frame cameras but will work with APS-C sensors as well. Using over 50 years of lens making experience, particularly the knowledge gained from the 35 millimeter 1.4 Art and the 50 millimeter 1.4 Art, the 24 millimeter 1.4 Art is aimed at being the new standard for fast aperture wide angle prime lenses. The latest optical design allows for the utmost in image quality with careful attention paid to edge to edge performance. An optimized power layout places the aspherical lens elements in the rear and adjusts the incidence angle of light source allowing for great performance wide open. Using premium FLD and SLD glass elements, the lens brings aberrations and distortion to a minimum, an issue many wide-angle lenses suffer from. With class leading performance, this lens is ideal for wedding photography, landscape photography, videography, astrophotography, low-light or indoor photography and event photography. As with all Global Vision lines, the 24 millimeter will be tested using the proprietary 'A1' measuring system ensuring the highest standard of operation. The Sigma 24 millimeter Art is compatible with the USB dock to update and customize and is also compatible with the Mount Conversion Service. A staple procedure for the Global Vision lines, every lens will be tested using the proprietary 'A1' measuring system.
USB Dock Compatibility
Sigma has developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus and full-time manual focus function.

Auto focus in low light can be a bit of a letdown (sometimes), but it's easily worked around once you get a feel for what the lens needs. I've been hearing some people have had issues with focus calibration, but luckily mine was perfect out of the box.
It's a very large and heavy bit of glass, not to the extent that it's uncomfortable to hold, but it definitely has a significant presence in the hands.
The fast aperture and wide focal length make this an ideal choice for low light street photography. I'm loving the shots I can get just using the beautiful neon signs, warm street lamps, and the triple color threat of a changing traffic signal. The Sigma 24mm 1.4 has been my go to lens for everything of late, it's great for portraiture, product photography, landscape. If it's in your budget, and you don't already have a fast wide, I wholeheartedly recommend you add this to your camera bag.
The build quality of the Sigma 24mm lens is on the superb level. Infinity focus reference is very accurate, at least true for the copy I own. AF works smoothly and quietly (not tested at night, I only use MF and liveview on stars). At max aperture, F1.4, the vignetting is obvious and still visible but acceptable at F2.8 and so is the coma of the stars in corners. But all are gone stopped to F4. Impressively sharp from the center to outer region.
I compared the Sigma 24mm to its rival, Samyang or Rokinon 24mm which is said to be the best for astrophotography especially for its unparalleled control on comatic aberration and found that, frankly, the Samyang does fairly better for this purpose than Sigma but, unfortunately, at the price of losing sharpness.
After all, I'd surely like to recommend this lens to anyone who is looking for a wide angle prime lens for some night photography stuff.

I bought it primary for shooting landscapes and perhaps astrophotography (if I ever get a clear night!). I use it with a Canon 5D mkiii and you can see some of the results attached. I've also used it with my 700D and works great as a wider portrait lens on a cropped body.
- Sharp as anything
- Visually very pleasing and feels well built
- Haven't used it much but I do like the carry case that it comes with.
- A bit heavy but when using a tripod this isn't really an issue.
- No weather sealing :(
I've also used the 35mm Art which is also a great lens and will definitely consider buying more sigma lenses in the future as they are amazing value for money.
I also own the sigma 18-35 1.8.
This prime lens does not seem to let in more light than the 18-35 1.8 and is not appreciably sharper which I expected as it’s a prime lens. It also weighs about the same as the 18-35. (They are both heavy)
I couldn’t justify paying £600 for a lens that did not perform head and shoulders above the 18-35 zoom so I sent it back.
Don’t get me wrong this is a great lens but if you already have the 18-35 i’d skip this one and get another focal length.
This lens gives great colours and sharpness and I’d highly recommend it.
I've given it 5 stars for VFM as I was looking at the Canon options originally which came in a lot higher priced. This lens has delivered so far and I'm really looking forward to a some clear nights to test out the performance there. I think wherever I visit this lens will be in my bag from now on.
A slightly odd focal length for such a fast lens to be honest. Way too wide for most everyday shooting/portraits/subjects but not wide enough for something like astro.
But it is super sharp and produces wonderful image quality. I used it mostly for landscapes and would have to work the composition properly using my feet more. I could have come to use this as my standard wide angle landscape lens but ultimately decided that the flexibility of something like a 16-35 outweighed the image quality performance of this one.
I have many sigma art lenses and they’ve all been excellent so far. I’ve not had focussing issues on my canon 5d mk4
So, DO NOT think to buy this lens without the dock.
After you calibrate it, this is one of the best 24mm lenses out there. If this lens had a Zeiss/Nikon/Canon brand on it, it would not cost less than 1500 pound.
