It's aimed at photographers and videographers who want a bright walkaround zoom and the bokeh possibilities that a wide aperture brings but who don't want the size, weight and cost typical of many F2.8 zooms. Travel and landscape photographers in particular will find its modest size and weight appealing, and it also offers potential as a portrait lens or for video capture.

2.8 Versus Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8: Is There a Leica 24-70mm f/2.8 Versus Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8: Is There a

I should point out that the technology Sigma uses in its lenses is not the same as the linear, electromagnetic system that Sony uses in their newer lenses. If you’re shooting sports or any other fast-moving subject, I don’t think Sigma’s design will outperform modern Sony lenses. This lens is not designed for that type of application, but I do think that is something most people will know going into it. A 50-250 f/2.8 will easily be 2x the weight/bulk, 2-4x the price, and sell 10-20x less units compared to a 70-200.A little bit of longitudinal chromatic aberration can be seen as magenta and cyan color fringing around high contrast edges in the image above. It's subtle enough to be a non-issue for the most part, and goes away as you stop down the lens. The zoom is also great with a bunch of different camera bodies. At the time I was reviewing the 28-70mm, I was also testing the Panasonic S1 and the Sigma fp L. The Panasonic is a larger camera as some of you know but it works great with the 28-70mm. The lens also feels great with an ultra compact body like the fp L as well. It’s worth noting that this zoom would also make an excellent lens on smaller APS-C bodies like the Leica CL, which thanks to the crop factor, would give you a focal length range of 42-105mm. Not only does it cost a lot less than the best standard zoom lenses, but it's much smaller and lighter, too, making it ideal for traveling.

Field review: Sigma 28-70mm F2.8 DG DN

Bokeh? Nobody knew about bokeh until recently. Whenever I mention bokeh to smartphone pix addicts they have that questioning look? BOUQUET? Nobody knows until you tell them. And nobody cares until someone starts comparing. Budget alternative: The L-mount doesn’t really have a cheaper ultra-wide zoom. If you can’t spend the cash, consider a prime like the Sigma 20mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art. Sony had both native e-mount and adapted a-mount glass available from the first day that the a7/a7r was introduced. There were also dozens of full frame adapters already on the market for e-mount bodies, including fd/fdn adapters for Canon film lenses.There’s no getting around the fact that that red dot logo means the lens costs more than some used cars. And while it manages to do the seemingly impossible and offer prime-like image quality in a zoom, few will want to drop that much cash on a lens, especially now that the L-Mount alliance means there are more options than ever before. And then some video call audio when you could have done a perfect quality overdub. You even have the mics and equipment for that ...

Lastly, the 28-70mm also comes with a petal shaped lens hood. In addition to flare protection, this is great to have when you want a bit more protection for your front element.One thing is clear though: as much as the optical formula appears to be the same on both lenses, they certainly have some notable differences that make it difficult to label the Leica just a “rehoused” Sigma. While optically identical, there are other factors to consider. Sigma Strengths Here’s a 100% crop of the photo above. Notice how you can read even the smallest words in this photo even though they are technically not even the focus points. Keep in mind that this was taken using 640 ISO as well, not 100 ISO.
