About this deal

The Sony lens is significantly smaller and dramatically lighter than the Sigma. In Sony E-mount, the Sigma lens is about one inch longer than in Canon EF mount, making it a bit front-heavy, especially considering that it weighs 27.5 ounces: about 75% more than the Sony GM lens. Lens In general, lenses become sharper as they are stopped down one or two stops from their wide-open apertures. In case of astrophotography, the distance to the subject does not change and it is necessary to fix the focus after manual focus adjustments have been made. This is to prevent the focus ring from accidentally being moved, which would cause out-of-focus images. In the past, it was left to the user to invent ways of achieving this, such as using tape to hold the focus ring in position. This was not ideal due the tape’s adhesive strength decreasing when temperatures drop. Still, 24mm is not so wide that it complicates composition and not so wide that it makes distant details (such as mountains) tiny. All in all, autofocus is good enough that you will instantly forget about it and instead be able to focus on the images you are creating. Sigma 24DN ART Image Quality

Now some people don’t mind size and weight, and it is for these people that I’m thankful for the FE versions of the ART series, as the ART series has always represented a strong value when you examine the performance-to-price ratio. Sigma has not increased the price of the ART series lenses on Sony FE, which is meaningful when one considers that there is extra manufacturing these lenses along with increased internal complexity. These lenses remain a strong value when compared to competing lenses, and that is particularly true on Sony E-mount, which has both 1) fewer lenses compared to the DSLR market and 2) many Sony E-mount lenses are more expensive than their DSLR counterparts. I think it makes sense for Sigma to make this move, as it gives them a chance to leverage some optically excellent lenses into a new system and thus expand the market for them.This effect is focus breathing, a change in focal length resulting from a change in focus distance. Stunning power of the Art series lens in a compact body: Explore the versatile potential of "24mm F1.4" with SIGMA Extension tubes are hollow lens barrels that shift a lens farther from the camera, allowing shorter focusing distances at the expense of long-distance focusing. With the hood removed, about 3.7" (94mm) of working distance is available, still making shadows a concern for lighting. The f/1.4 refers to the maximum aperture, the ratio of the focal length to the entrance pupil diameter, available in this lens.

The shape, intensity, and position of the flare and ghosting effects in an image are variable, dependent on the position and nature of the light source (or sources), selected aperture, shape of the aperture blades, and quantity and quality of the lens elements and their coatings. So does the Sigma 24mm F1.4 DN ART hold up under intense scrutiny? You can judge for yourself by either watching my video review below or reading on to get the full picture. Experience the power of an astrophotography lens in a compact body with the SIGMA 24mm F1.4 DG DN | Art, perfect for everyday use and stunning resultsAn 11-blade count diaphragm will create 22-point sunstars (diffraction spikes) from point light sources captured with a narrow aperture. While I hoped for better corner star performance from this lens, these results are not unusual for a lens in this class.
