Sigma 24-35mm f/2 Art Lens Review

Photographer Christopher Frost recently published another interesting review of a new Sigma lens and this time it is the full frame 24-35mm f/2 Art which, like the 20mm f/1.4 he tested recently seems seems to be an excellent performer.

Simga recently released a fast short zoom lens for full frame cameras which is (more or less) the equivalent to it’s very successful 18-35mm  f/1.8 lens (almost the same aperture with a bit wider but shorter comparable angle of view).

Frost takes the lens through a series of tests and from the looks of it the IQ seems to be great especially if you stop down to about f/2.8 (f/4 seems superb) but even at f/2 the IQ looks very good (although vignette is pretty apparent).
