With a design that guarantees outstanding image quality from the centre to the edges of images, the Sigma 12-24mm f4 Art DG HSM Lens features lens elements made with “F” Low Dispersion glass to minimise distortion, chromatic aberration, and flare. This super-wide-angle zoom lens is the 3rd-generation 12-24mm lens from Sigma. Its constant f4 aperture makes it 1-stop brighter than similar lenses.

Introducing the 3rd-Generation 12-24mm Zoom

The ultra-wide-angle zoom pioneer, SIGMA launched its first ultra-wide-angle zoom in 1979: the SIGMA ZOOM GAMMA 21-35mm F3.5-4. Since then, they have continued to develop ultra-wide-angle zoom lenses, always including their most advanced technologies. In 2003, they introduced the SIGMA 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 EX DG, the world’s first ultra-wide-angle zoom for DSLRs with full-frame sensors. In 2011, they offered the updated and upgraded version of that lens, the SIGMA 12-24mm F4.5-5.6 II DG HSM. This lens offered an angle of view even wider than that of human vision, allowing users to enjoy the ultra-wide-angle range with incredible perspective. Now, the 3rd-generation SIGMA 12-24mm F4 DG HSM | Art continues this tradition with image quality and ease of use both taken to another level.

Outstanding Image Quality

When it comes to ultra-wide-angle lenses, photographers require outstanding image quality from the centre of the image to the edges without any distortion. Such performance is particularly valuable in architectural photography. The new SIGMA 12-24mm F4 DG HSM | Art leverages SIGMA’s accumulated expertise in the processing and manufacture of aspherical lenses and incorporates multiple aspherical lenses produced with precision glass moulding. The lens also features lens elements made with FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass, which is equivalent to fluorite in performance, and an optimised power distribution. Together, these features help minimise distortion, transverse chromatic aberration, and coma flare. As a result, image quality is outstanding across the image, all the way to the edges.

  • As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens' is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
  • This wide-angle 12-24mm f/4 zoom lens is designed for full-frame format Nikon F-mount cameras, and can also be used with APS-C models where it will provide a 19.2-38.4mm equivalent focal length.
  • Constant f/4 maximum aperture provides consistent performance throughout the zoom range.
  • F Low Dispersion and aspherical elements, including an 80mm large-diameter moulded glass aspherical element, have been incorporated within the lens design to correct for chromatic aberrations throughout the entire focusing range and help to ensure high image sharpness, clarity, and contrast regardless of focus point or aperture setting. This optical design also helps to control distortion and limit vignetting.
  • A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimise lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and colour-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
  • The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realises quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimised AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
  • Minimum focus distance of 24cm when shooting at 24mm for getting close to your subjects.
  • A rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to produce an attractive out-of-focus quality.
  • The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations.
  • The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability.
  • Dust- and splash-proof construction with rubber sealing to protect the mount and a water- and oil-repellent coating on the front and rear elements.
  • This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.
