The Sigma 24mm 1.4 DG HSM Art is a state of the art wide-angle prime lensPRIME LENSA photographic lens used as an (1) alternative, fixed focal length alternative to a zoom lens or, (2) more traditionally, as the primary lens in a combination lens system. In the first sense, a prime lens is known for having a larger maximum aperture and consequently offers greater shutter speeds, having advanced optics and weighing less than zoom lenses, albeit less flexible, because of their simpler construction with less moving parts. In the second sense, a prime lens refers to the primary lens when paired with other optical devices. A prime lens's focal length is fixed and the photographer is required to move closer or further to achieve the correct image composition. designed for Full Frame cameras but will work with APS-C sensors as well. Using over 50 years of lens making experience, particularly the knowledge gained from the 35mm 1.4 Art and the 50mm 1.4 Art, the 24mm 1.4 Art is aimed at being the new standard for fast apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. wide angle prime lenses. The latest optical design allows for the utmost in image quality with careful attention paid to edge to edge performance. An optimized power layout places the aspherical lens elements in the rear and adjusts the incidence angle of light source allowing for great performance wide open. Using premium FLD & SLD glass elements, the lens brings aberrations and distortion to a minimum, an issue many wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties.es suffer from. With class leading performance, this lens is ideal for wedding photography, landscape photography, videography, astrophotography, lowlight/indoor photography and event photography. As with all Global Vision lines, the 24mm will be tested using the proprietary “A1” measuring system ensuring the highest standard of operation. The Sigma 24mm Art is compatible with the USB dock to update and customize and is also compatible with the Mount Conversion Service.
