The SIGMA C series introduces compact, beautifully designed, high-performance optics for mirrorless camera systems. SIGMA has introduced a 24mm wide-angle prime to the Contemporary lens line-up that offers excellent portability and versatility.
The 24mm F3.5 DG DN | C offers a very compact design similar to that of the 45mm F2.8 DG DN | C. Perfectly balanced on a mirrorless body, it is ideal for landscapes, astrophotography, wide-angle portraits, interiors, close-ups, events and street photography.
Despite its small size, no compromise has been made on the optical performance of the SIGMA I series 24mm F3.5 DG DN | Contemporary. It is capable of capturing the finest details when shooting on high resolution full-frame cameras, and it does so across the entire frame, which means photographers can rely on edge-to-edge sharpness at all apertures when shooting wide-angle scenes.
The lens features the latest optical design optimised for mirrorless systems. This includes three high-precision, glass-molded aspherical elements created with advanced processing technology, and SLD glass and high refractive index glass elements – together they make it possible to combine performance with portability. In addition, the smooth focus drive system designed around a quiet and fast stepping motor also makes the C series 24mm F3.5 DG DN | C a desirable choice for shooting video.
The lens renders very attractive bokeh, and out-of-focus highlights are near-circular, even at the edges of the frame. This is a particularly useful characteristic when shooting close-ups at the lens’ exceptionally close focusing distance of 10.8cm, where the subject is sharp and the background is blurred due to a shallow depth-of-field. The maximum reproduction ratio is 1:2.
With a 24mm focal length this wide-angle prime is perfect for landscapes, astrophotography, events and urban photography. High resolving power across the whole frame and well-controlled flare and ghosting make for ultra-high quality results. Its small size and weight make it easy to carry long distances
