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.
Since 1961, and with the recent introduction of Sigma Global Vision, we have worked toward one single, simple goal: To hold ourselves to the highest standard of design and manufacturing of imaging products. Photography is all we do. And it’s all we’ve done. So you can rest assured that it’s something we know extensively and care deeply about. You have a vision. We’ve made it our mission.
- Large aperture wide-angle lens
- Performance similar to 35mm F1.4 Art & 50mm F1.4 Art
- FLD and SLD glass elements to reduce distortion and chromatic aberration
- Filter size: 77mm

When I first got this lens, I went out and took a variety of photos in a variety of conditions using my D810. The photos did not have the sharpness I was expecting based on my experience with the outstanding Sigma 50mm Art lens I have been using. Even a casual inspection of the photos showed severe front-focusing. I tried connecting it with my Sigma USB port device (purchased 11 months ago when I got my Art 50mm), but learned that the USB device was now dead. I had only used it once, back when I first received my 50mm. Got the focus dialed in then, and haven't used the USB device since.
I don't know if the 24mm somehow killed the USB device, or if it just died on its own over the last 11 months, but it was dead. The particular symptoms were that I could plug it in, the on-computer software would recognize it (little green "port" light on screen would come on), but the on-device indicator light would not come on and no functionality was accessible. Called the (very helpful) people at Sigma, talked through the issue, and they concluded there was no option but to send it (the USB device, that is) in for warranty service. As of this writing, it is off at Sigma. I am told they have a 48 hour turn-around in their warranty department, so I expect it back any day.
I decided to try the on-camera AF fine tune to see what I could get out of this lens. See the attached photo. I discovered that my subjective conclusion of front focusing was correct. I also discovered that the extent of the front focusing was so extreme that even at the limit (20 units) of the camera's adjustment, there was not quite enough to cure the problem.
My intention is to wait until I receive the USB device back from Sigma and then try that. Hopefully I will be able to get these focus problems resolved. If not, I will be quite disappointed. I have had amazing results with the 50mm Art from Sigma, and was really hoping to get similar results from the 24. For now, I'm calling this a "Three Star" review. Depending on how things turn out, I expect it will either go to "One Star" or "Five Stars".
Update #1: I received my repaired USB dock back from Sigma today. By all appearances, they just replaced it, but either way, the dock now works perfectly with my 50mm, but it still does not connect to my 24mm. I am sending the 24mm back to Amazon for replacement. We'll see if the replacement lens solves the problem.
Update #2: I received my replacement 24mm from Amazon yesterday, and spent several hours working through focus calibration in my studio. My initial reaction is disappointment. The prior problems with connection to the USB dock are resolved, but so far I do not find this lens living up to the reputation of the 50mm. Not by a fair amount. The sharpness is just not there. I'm going to run some more tests, but unless things turn around, this one is going back.
Update #3: Decided to try the lens out on a shoot. Took a few hundred action shots in a martial arts environment. Overall performance was better than I expected. I'm not a real technical guy, so I don't know about all the details. My "by eye" conclusion is that if you stop this lens down to at least f/4 it becomes acceptably sharp. Wide open? Not so much. My final conclusion is that I am going to keep it, but that it does not have that "magic" that the 50mm ART delivers. The 24 is an "ok" lens.
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.

The Sigma 24mm f1.4 Art is an outstanding lens, sharp and well built. I also own the 20mm f1.4 and 14mm f1.8 Art lenses.Read more
