Sigma has just announced the pricing and availability of its new 14-24mm f/2.8 Art lens, and the new details won’t disappoint. The lens will be available next month with a price tag of just $1,299.
Sigma’s Art lenses are highly acclaimed for matching (or often exceeding) the optical quality of lenses from the likes of Canon and Nikon, all while having price tags that are usually significantly more affordable.
$1,299 is an affordable price for this lens because Nikon’s equivalent offering, the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED, costs $1,899, or $600 and nearly 50% more. Canon doesn’t currently have an equivalent for this focal range and aperture. The closest comparables may be the $1,299 16-35mm f/2.8L II and the $2,699 Canon 11-24mm f/4L.
And in case you missed the announcement the first time around, the lens is designed for 50-megapixel plus cameras and features “near zero distortion” of less than 1% with minimal transverse chromatic aberration, flare, and ghosting.
