Sigma Clarifies Status of 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art Lens


Ronkonkoma, NY—Sigma Corporation of America responded to rumors that appeared on various websites reporting that the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN Art lens for the Sony E mount and Leica L mount had been discontinued.

“We want to assure you that this is not the case,” a company spokesman stated. “The simple fact of the matter is that the lens is currently on back order in the Japanese market due to high worldwide demand because of its total performance and competitive pricing.”

The Sigma 24–70mm f/2.8 DG DN Art is a full-frame, short-range zoom that’s the mainstay of many wedding photographers. It delivers impressive framing flexibility and a constant f/2.8 maximum aperture in a well-balanced, compact form factor.

Further, its optical design incorporates six FLD (fluorite equivalent), two SLD (special-low dispersion) and three aspheric elements; they achieve high sharpness, clarity and color accuracy over the lens’s entire range. Moreover, the mirrorless-dedicated design contributes to a reduction in the lens’s size and weight.


In addition, super multilayer and Nano Porous coatings are applied throughout to suppress flare and ghosting. And its stepping AF motor provides quick, quiet, decisive autofocus. The lens focuses down to 7 inches (1:2.9 maximum magnification). What’s more, its 11-blade diaphragm contributes to beautiful, artistic bokeh.

Weather-sealed construction enables shooting in challenging environments. Plus, the lens is fitted with a durable brass bayonet mount to enhance mounting accuracy and rigidity. It has a suggested retail price of $1,099 in both the L and E mounts.
