Offering best-in-class optical performance, this lens is designed to minimize aberrations for images virtually free of streaking and warping.

SIGMA has a proven reputation for wide-angle lens design and manufacturing. Drawing on this experience and design know-how, refined through development of the SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art and 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art in our Art line, we have successfully minimized sagittal coma flare, chromatic aberration, distortion, and vignetting to achieve exceptional levels of optical performance with almost no aberration or distortion. This lens provides the best possible performance when photographing a variety of subjects from cityscapes, mountain ranges, and the star-filled night sky to indoor photography with low illumination or scenes that require a smooth bokeh effect. Enjoy the astonishing optical performance of the new F1.4 series that has just joined SIGMA’s iconic Art line.

Art line delivers high-level artistic expression.

SIGMA is organizing all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art, and Sports, where each line has a distinctive concept. Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power, our Art line delivers high-level artistic expression. With the astonishing rendering performance that meets the highest standard, along with landscapes, portraits, still-life, close-ups, and casual snaps, they are 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 and starry skies and many other scenes.

Minimized Aberration

This lens features minimized aberration achieved through the latest design technology and know-how that has been accumulated by SIGMA in its lens development over many years and offers astonishing rendering performance, even at the edges, with ultra-high resolution. Whilst featuring higher resolution around the focus point, the lens offers a smooth and natural bokeh effect. Both high definition rendering without chromatic aberration and natural bokeh expression are possible, even at maximum aperture.

Leveraging our optical expertise, we have minimized sagittal coma flare for optimal capture of starry nightscapes.

Sagittal coma flare is the aberration in which a point light source appears as a streak instead of a point, and it affects large-diameter lenses in particular. By positioning aspherical lens elements toward the rear of the 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art, we have adjusted the angle of incidence of light for optimal power distribution. Even at wide-open aperture, you will enjoy outstanding image quality. Since streaking of point light sources toward the edges of the image is minimized, this lens is a powerful ally in photographing celestial bodies, night-time illumination, and more.

High-contrast images with bright edges—even at wide-open aperture.

Improving efficiency at large apertures and minimizing vignetting, we have designed the lens to secure very good brightness. Even at open aperture, it ensures high-contrast images for indoor photography, astronomical photography, and when photographing blue sky.

Flare and ghosting reduction

One of the requirements of high rendering performance is the correction of chromatic aberration. Particularly, for axial chromatic aberration, which is challenging to correct even during image processing, the lens development stage is vital in ensuring minimized distortion. The 24mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art incorporates FLD (“F” Low Dispersion)* glass and SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements to minimize chromatic aberration of magnification, which is mainly visible around the edge of the image. Moreover, the power distribution ensures the correction of axial chromatic aberration. The result is high image quality throughout the entire focusing range—sharp and high-contrast image rendering without colour blur.

Exclusive low-dispersion glass

The degree to which light is refracted by glass depends on the light's wavelength. This fact causes different colours of light to focus at slightly different points. The result is chromatic aberration, the colour fringing that is particularly noticeable in telephoto lenses. Most chromatic aberration can be removed by combining a high-refractivity convex lens element with a low-refractivity concave element. Yet residual chromatic aberration known as “secondary spectrum” may still remain. To minimize this secondary spectrum, which can be a serious issue with conventional lenses, SIGMA lenses feature up to three types of exclusive low-dispersion glass offering superior performance: ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion), SLD (Special Low Dispersion) and FLD (“F” Low Dispersion). In particular, FLD glass offers ultra-low dispersion in combination with high transmittance and the anomalous dispersion characteristics of fluorite. Meticulous deployment of these types of exclusive low-dispersion glass and optimization of power distribution gives SIGMA lenses superlative image rendition undiminished by residual chromatic aberration.

The test of the Sigma A 24 mm f/1.4 DG HSM shows that reputable producers really raise the prices a lot in this segment. The Nikkor AF-S 24mm f/1.4G ED which loses the duel with the Sigma in the most important categories, being less sharp both in the centre and on the edge of the frame, costs two...

Practical Photography

Sigma’s Art range of prime lenses is among the most sought after on the market. Not only do they offer good value for money, they also display stunning optics and excellent design. The 24mm, which works on full-frame or crop sensor Nikons, Canons and now Sonys, features 15 elements in 11 groups.

ePHOTOzine

To date, other lenses in Sigma’s ‘Art’ series of optics have been well received, thanks in part to the optical quality they deliver and for very reasonable pricing when compared to manufacturer’s own equivalent lenses. This 24mm f/1.4 looks to continue this trend.

PC Magazine

The AF-S Nikkor 24mm f/1.8G ED is another excellent lens in Nikon's low-cost f/1.8G prime series.

Photography Life

Sigma has done a great job rolling out excellent Art-series lenses and the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art is not an exception. As you can see from the previous pages of this review, the lens shines in a number of ways when compared to lenses like Nikon 24mm f/1.4G or Samyang 24mm f/1.4, with its impressive...

Shutterbug

Sigma’s series of Art lenses is a great compliment to the company’s existing array of high-end, high-quality optics. The 24mm F/1.4 HG DSM Art is only slightly less capable than the 50mm model in the series and the $850 price tag makes it affordable for even the budget-minded photographer.

The Digital Picture

As I see it, there is always room on the market for another good ultra-wide aperture prime lens. Though I don't want to discount the AF inconsistency I occasionally encountered, Sigma continues to deliver greatness with their Art lenses and considering the performance the 24mm f/1.4 Art Lens is...

OpticalLimits

So has Sigma done it again ? Well, the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM | A isn't flawless but pretty good nonetheless (keeping in mind that the test was performed on a 50mp sensor!). The center quality is nice straight at f/1.4 but the borders are plain soft here.

Photodo

This lens is the latest addition to Sigma's 'Art' line of lenses that promise excellent optical quality and increased creative options thanks to a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture. Being one of Sigma's top of the range lenses, it sports a hypersonic focusing motor, brass lens mount and build quality...

I have to say I had high expectations for this lens having previously purchased the Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art and 35mm 1.4 Art. To my dismay however, once mounted on my shiny new Nikon D810 I was somewhat underwhelmed by the overall sharpness especially wide open.

WEX

I recommend this for any portrait work and landscape. Very good images, sharp and precise.

SRS Microsystems

Although I've not used this lens a lot since purchase I'm very impressed by the quality of the results it provides on my Nikon D810. The sharpness is to behold and I consider it a bargain which although not cheap represents a considerable over the Nikon equivalent.

I've used Sigma lenses in the past and while I've been happy with them I have not found them to be outstanding, preferring the camera manufacturers lenses. I decided to take a flyer on the new Sigma 24mm 1.4 Art to see if it lived up to all the hype.

Imaging Resource

Got this last year used in ok shape condition only to find out that it needed ALOT of fine adjustment using the sigma usb dock. After the adjustment of AF performance then was it sharp autofocus. Sometimes it did back focus but it usually gets fixed but pressing AF a second time.

Awesome lens, glad I spent the money, works seamless with canon.
