Product Description

The 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM is a relatively wide-range standard zoom for full frame SLRs, and part of Sigma's line of high quality 'Art' lenses. It offers a useful wide angle to moderate telephoto zoom range, and includes a Hypersonic Motor for fast, silent focus. Optical Stabilisation is also available to combat camera shake. The lens can also be used on APS-C / DX format cameras, on which it will offer a 36-160mm equivalent angle of view.

    Sigma 24-105 f4 Nikon mount on a Nikon D600

    Hello. I finally received the lens! So far I have not had a lot of time to try it out, but I thought my first impression might be of interest to some of you. Here goes: (1) Big, heavy and seems constructed like a tank (2) Perfectly recognized by my D600 (3) The zoom ring is very "hard" (to turn) (4) The auto-focus is fast and silent (compared to my Nikkor 180mm f2.8)

    Review on Sigma 24-105 f/4 'A' lens

    These are my impression of the lens as it was used with Canon 5D Mark II. Let's get the negatives out of the way--the zoom ring is fairly stiff as compared to a Canon L lens and I'm not in favor of the zoom ring placed toward the front glass and the focus ring on the back. And the other issues I have with is the fact that the lens has a double-barrel tubes, not weather sealed, and uses an 82mm filters. Now, to the positives, which are many--the build-quality on this lens is superb, it just ...

    Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM

    I got the lens 2 months ago and tested it extensively with my D800 on a trip through Sri Lanka as standard lens. The extra zoom range compared to 24-70 is significant and especially for portraits and general street fotography a real advantage. Futher I used it as Sports lens to capture my kitesurf colleagues. The AF is extremely fast and precise, therfore the lens is just perfect for fast moving objects. Furthermore the OS does a great Job when Shooting e.g. from a boat/bus etc. The built ...

    Another hit from Sigma

    Only just bought this lens to compliment the 18-35 Sigma. So far I'm very impressed, there is some chromatic abberations in high contrast areas - bright skies where trees are present but LR5 soon resolves this issue, outstanding performance on my 70D and great as a walkaround GP lens but will also be using it professionally at weddings etc just for the flexibility of the zoom - 38-168 on FF not terribly wide but I have the 18-35 on my 7D for wider shots plus my 70-200 for longer FL shots.

Questions & Answers


Not satisfied with Nikon 24-70.. which lens?

Hi, I currently use a D800 paired with a Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8. For the most part, I really like the lens - good sharpness in the center right from f/2.8 and the lightning fast AF. However, I usually take landscape shots and I found that at 24mm and shooting distant subjects, the corners and edges never seen to get sharp, no matter the aperture (anywhere from f/2.8 to f/22). This isn't a depth of field issue, as my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 is razor sharp edge to edge anywhere from f/5.6 or higher with the same scene. Because of this, I wish to sell my Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and replace it with another constant aperture zoom. I have been eyeing the Sigma 24-105mm f/4, as it seems to be getting glowing reviews, but I have not seen any comparisons with the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 regarding my issue. Does anyone have any experience with these lenses? Or perhaps someone knows an even better option?

I have two suggestions.  First, in order to preempt the inevitable "are you sure that you are focusing correctly" posts, please considering posting some examples of the shots you find lacking. Second, go ahead and rent or borrow either a Nikon 24mm f/1.4g or a Zeiss 24mm f/2 and a second copy of the 24-70mm, and do a 3-way shoot-off against your current lens.  That should tell you whether the 24-70mm is the wrong lens for you, your copy of the 24-70mm needs repair or alignment, or if your expectations are what need alignment.

If you want razor sharp 24mm performance, the 24-70 isn't your lens. Nikon has, actually, several lenses that have excellent 24mm performance: the 14-24, the 16-35 and even the inexpensive 18-35. Every zoom has a weak spot - the 24-70 is more of a 28-60mm lens for landscape and a 35-70 lens for close subject distances (roughly). I use a 24/1.4G AFS for the 18-35/G zoom if I need high quality 24mm. There are rumors Nikon is thinking about a 24/1.8G next year, which if it follows in the line of their latest 1.8G releases, should be quite good. -m Continue Reading

A lot of people on this forum pixel peep, but this group has a much higher obsession rating than the normal population. How many of the people who look at prints of your photos examine the corners? How many non-photographers do you send full res. 36 MP images to, and how many of them pixel peep the corners. The OP can obsess over the corners of his 24mm shots, but it is going to cost a lot of $$ to improve them and he will lose an otherwise excellent lens. That done, his friends probably wont notice the difference—unless he only hangs out with photo nerds. :-) Continue Reading
