What must else Sigma do to give the market confidence their Art line of lenses are top notch?
Incidentally why do not hear much about Sigma DSLRs why do they not give Nikon a true run for there money and make a D400ora D4x
Perhaps Nikon should buy out Sigma and let them keep producing this line of Art lenses.
The new Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art lens does, indeed, out resolve the offerings from the major manufacturers, at least in the center of the image. At the edges, though, the advantage disappears. More importantly with any 24mm f/1.4 lens, try as you will, unless you really stop the lens way down you aren't going to get a flat field of focus. And if you are going to stop the lens way down, why invest all the extra money for a wider aperture lens.That doesn't make these bad lenses. There are clearly some types of photography that this focal length is invaluable for, and in that case you just learn to work around the shortcomings. In many cases, though, the old rule that the best 24mm f/1.4 is a 35mm f/1.4 and a few steps backwards is often true.
"In many cases, though, the old rule that the best 24mm f/1.4 is a 35mm f/1.4 and a few steps backwards is often true." Very interesting and can save you $1,000.00.
both were very well controlled on other Art primes.
