Sigma 24mm F1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro User Reviews

Wideangle prime lens | Canon EF, Four Thirds, Nikon F (FX), Pentax KAF, Sigma SA Bayonet, Sony/Minolta Alpha

I have used the new version (the rubber grip on the barrel has new Sigma design) of Sigma 24mm 1.8 EX DG Aspherical Macro lens Nikon model for quite a long time on both Nikon D7200 and Nikon D750 models. I think this is an excellent underrated lens and ignored by many Nikon shooters. At 1.8 aperture, it gives crisp images in low lighting, good for group photos and events shooting. On D750 the lens is performs excellent, no matter what aperture setting I am using and in all lighting ...

I recently bought this lens for Nikon D7200, after doing lot of research online and watching many videos. Many of the reviews have mixed opinions, but luckily I bought the latest model lens (please see the link for the differences - Sigma 24mm 1.8 EX DG different versions ) .

The lens came with wrong AF and I had to do the AF tuning in my camera for this lens, which took me ...

I've had this lens nearly 2 years now, first on a crop camera and now on full frame. This came with me on a recent holiday as I wanted some landscape and architecture shots.

I had it calibrated to my crop camera to improve sharpness and found on my full-frame it doesn't need any micro adjustment. For me the Sigma 24mm really proves the need to experience lenses rather than solely rely on reviews to form ...

I had heard mixed reviews of Sigma products over the years, mainly in regards to their quality control, but I took a chance with this one in a Four Thirds format, as there were (and still are) a lack of fast budget primes in the Four Thirds system.  At the time, I was shooting with an E-420 and didn't have the money for the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4 I wanted, so I purchased this as an alternative.  It shouldn't have been surprising, I suppose, as this was a carry over from Sigma film lenses, but I ...

Typically I don't go near anything not produced by the maker of the camera I am using. There are some high end exceptions but in general the less expensive choices are usually less expensive for a reason. In this case I was in real need of a close focusing wide angle lens and the choices were few. There was this or the Nikon PC lens which is excellent but too expensive for the project I needed it for. I took a chance figuring a decent 24 for general use could always be justified if the macro ...
