Access the full power of your camera’s image sensor. This new zoom fulfills Sigma’s uncompromising pursuit of high resolution.

The image sensors of digital SLR cameras continue to offer higher and higher resolution, and photographers are looking for high-performance lenses that leverage these sensors’ full power. In the case of zoom lenses as well, which are a dependable go-to in a wide variety of photographic conditions, photographers want convenience combined with exceptional optical performance. The new SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM zoom lens more than fulfills these requirements, offering exceptionally stable high resolution from wide-angle to medium telephoto photography.

While featuring a large-aperture 82mm filter size, this lens minimizes optical aberrations and avoids reduced peripheral brightness, an issue that tends to affect lenses with similar specifications. Each lens is checked with Sigma’s proprietary A1 MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system to ensure it offers exceptional quality for the high-megapixel era. Try this new high-performance zoom for yourself, and experience Sigma’s uncompromising pursuit of high resolution.

The full realization of the Art product concept for you to hold in your own hands and appreciate with your own eyes.

Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and tremendous expressive power, our new Art line of lenses delivers top-level image quality. With unsurpassed expressive performance, these lenses reach the high standards demanded by photographers with an artistic, creative inclination. Along with landscapes, portraits, still-life, close-up and casual snaps, they're perfect for the kind of photography that unleashes the inner artist. Ideal for studio photography, they offer just as much expressive scope when capturing architecture, starry skies, underwater shots and many other scenes.

When shooting of scenes in nature or travel destinations, photographers need a high zoom ratio combined with excellent handling to capture all the subjects they encounter. The SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM covers the most commonly used zoom range, from wide-angle to medium telephoto. It also takes usability to the next level, offering F4 brightness throughout the zoom range, OS (Optical Stabilizer) functionality, and HSM (hypersonic motor). Thanks to its convenient handling, the SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM is an ideal lens for many types of photography such as snapshots, portraits and landscapes.

Covering the standard shooting range of 35mm full size image sensor

The convenience of a zoom lens enables photographers to capture various subjects without the need to change lenses. The SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM is a very handy zoom lens that covers the basic shooting range from wide to mid-telephoto. Moreover, its constant aperture of F4, OS (Optical Stabilizer) and HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) enhances the lens' usability. It is ideal for portraits, landscapes and general photography.

Superior image quality

This is a lens that represents the concept of our “Art” line, and it meets the highest standard of our quality test. For those standard lenses with a high zoom ratio, they tend to show astigmatic aberration, field curvature, distortions and colour aberration. In order to compensate for these, various types of high-performance lenses, such as FLD, SLD and glass-moulded aspheric lenses including double-sided aspheric lens, have been included into the optical system. In addition, it suppresses chromatic aberration very effectively at telephoto-end, and achieves superior image quality throughout the zoom range. This lens overcomes low peripheral brightness that is common for those lenses with similar specifications. Also, the wide filter size 82mm is contributing for superior optical performance.

Optical Stabilizer

This lens incorporates an OS system which offers superior stabilization, making it possible to compensate for camera shake even in macro range photography where a small blur can be easily identified.

Convenient handling

The lens' wide zoom ring ensures convenient handling. By putting the zoom ring in front, allows the lens barrel to be more compact. The inner focusing system eliminates front lens rotation, enhancing the lens' stability and allowing use of Circular Polarizing filters.

Designed to minimize flare and ghosting

Flare and ghosting were thoroughly measured and monitored from an early stage in the lenses development to establish an optical design which is resistant to strong incidental light such as backlight. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions. Attaching the matched petal type hood, which is supplied, will provide extra protection from flare and ghosting.

Minimum focusing distance of 45cm

With a minimum focusing distance of 45cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.6, this lens is excellent for close-up photography.

Hyper Sonic Motor

The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures a silent, high-speed AF function. Optimizing AF algorithm, smoother AF is achieved. It also enables full-time manual focusing capability which allows sensible focus adjustment by simply rotating the focus ring.

Incorporating Rounded Diaphragm

The 9 blade rounded diaphragm creates an attractive round bokeh at large-aperture settings.

Brass made bayonet mount

This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term use.

Newly developed “USB DOCK” exclusively for new product lines

Based on these new lines, we have developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

The new Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM offers a versatile focal range whilst being tack-sharp from 24mm to 80mm, particularly in the centre of the frame. Sharpness at 105mm isn't quite as good, or at the edges of the frame throught the zoom range, but overall the Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM is one...

With their latest lens releases, Sigma appear to be changing their past image of a manufacturer of lenses that are less expensive than the major camera manufacturers, instead concentrating on lenses that deliver performance to rival the best available.

LensTip.com

Once again the Sigma company proved they can produce a high quality lens. Although it is not always able to compete successfully against its brand-name rivals (failing to do so when it comes to the chromatic aberration, vignetting or autofocus), in most categories it still gets higher notes.

PhotoReview

The 24-105mm focal length is a versatile range on cameras with 36 x 24 mm sensors. It’s less attractive on cameras with APS-C sized chips, covering the equivalent of 36-157.5mm on Nikon, Pentax and Sony cameras and 38.4-168mm on Canon bodies.

The Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM lens is a great value for full-frame shooters who aren't in need of an f/2.8 zoom.

Sigma released some great products recently but have they really found the silver bullet in all categories ? No, they aren't there yet.

Good walkabout lens for daytime shooting. Minimum focal length a little limiting on DX but results are stunningly sharp with good colour gamut. Very happy with this lens!

What an amazing lens, it is heavy, but I love the feel, it works so smoothly and sharp. What a joy to work with!

Heavy, but sits well on my D750 and is simply a joy to use, and having the range for 90% of my shots.

It’s very good lens. Crisp clear and sharp images. Works well with my canon 90D.

In my opinion this is a fantastic bit of kit. I own the Canon equivalent but in the two months of ownership I prefer the Sigma every time. It is weighty but this just adds to the feel of the overall quality of this lens in both build and picture quality.

Having now used this lens on a number of occasions, I feel I can now give a full review. This is an excellent lens. Colour reproduction is stunning. Focusing is very quick & is sharp across all focusing ranges.
