Sigma Announces f/2 Zoom Lens for Full Frame Cameras
Sigma Corporation of America has expanded its Global Vision Art lens’ series with the addition of the new Sigma 24–35mm f/2 DG HSM Art lens for full-frame cameras. The company claims that the constant wide-aperture, wide-angle zoom offers aperture of f/2 throughout the zoom range.
The newly announced lens is capable of doing the work of fixed focal length lenses of 24mm, 28mm and 35mm with f/2 brightness, giving the maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.4.
“Now, rather than switching between three high-performance, fixed focal length lenses, photographers and videographers can simply zoom and know that the results will be of prime calibre,” said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, President of Sigma Corporation of America.
The construction of the lens contains 8 elements in 13 groups. It offers minimum aperture of f/16, angle of view (35mm) of 84.1° to 63.4° and minimum focusing distance of 11-inches.
Other features of the 24–35mm f/2 DG HSM Art lens include an optimised autofocus algorithm, manual focus override function, an inner focusing system for videography and a nine-blade rounded diaphragm.
The lens will be available for Sigma, Canon and Nikon mounts. Pricing and availability will be announced later by the company.Tags: Wide Aperture, diaphragm, Sigma Corporation of America, Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art lens, Wide-angle zoom, Fixed focal length lenses, Magnification ratio, Mark Amir-Hamzeh, President of Sigma Corporation of America, Autofocus algorithm, Inner focusing system
