The New Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART Full Frame Lens – No Distortion?

Sigma continue the high performing ART lens range with an ultra-wide Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART lens, promising no distortion.

Landscape scenes, architecture and large spaces can be captured in even wider angles with the new 12-24mm f/4 ART lens, with zero distortion according to Sigma’s tests. The lens is designed for full frame and has a uniquely designed front element that aids in reducing the ‘fish-eye’ look.

Aspherical lenses with low dispersion glass (equivalent to flourite in performance) help minimize distortion, chromatic aberration, pin cushion effect and flaring. The body is weather sealed, and the front and rear lenses have splash proof coating.

The Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART lens will be available in EF, Nikon and SA mount, but with the soon coming MC-11 mount converter you can use the lens on E-mount cameras like the Sony a7S II and FS5.

The only comparable lens on the market right now is probably the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4 lens. But with the ART lens series quality we’ve seen before, the promise of no distortion and a pricetag almost half of the Canon, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART lens is certainly an intriguing product for many video shooters and photographers alike.

Here are the specs of the lens:

  • 16 elements in 11 groups
  • Aperture of f/4 to f/22
  • No hard stop focus ring
  • Angle of view – 122 degrees to 84.1 degrees.
  • Minimum focus distance of 24cm.
  • 9 aperture blades
  • Weighing in at 1150g/40.6oz
  • Splash proof front and rear lenses.
  • 102mm front diameter.

The Sigma 12-24mm f/4 ART lens will be available in October 2016 and is available for pre-order now.

Well, after 3 Sigma lenses, all of which had focus issues out of the box, two of them uncorrectable with the USB Dock, I’m not going to invest into their lenses anytime soon. No matter how good their optical quality. If they manage to resolve those issues I#ll gladly add more than one lens to my collection.

Because as of 2016 it’s impossible to make a 2x full frame zoom that wide with an aperture of 2.8… Even making a full frame zoom that wide at all is quite the feat. The only other comparable lens is the canon and that came out less than 2 years ago.
