UPDATE: Price Announced – $850 – Preorder at B&H Photo Video. This is now the cheapest Autofocus capable 24mm f/1.4 on the market.  Shipping: March 20, 2015

Sigma has announced a new lens in their excellent ART series. The Sigma 24mm (38mm on crop) f/1.4.  We love our 35mm f/1.4 and 50mm f/1.4 from Sigma and this is likely to be another winner.   Why do we love the Sigma ART series? They are exceptionally sharp, very well made and offer a great value, saving you several hundred over the similar Canon L lenses and offering better sharpness!  Christina quickly sold her 50mm f/1.2 after seeing the review and side by side I did with my Sigma 50mm f/1.4, we now own two of these 50mm f/1.4 lenses and one 35mm f/1.4.

24mm is a wonderful walk around focal length and you now have several options at this focal length depending on what brand you use.

Available in several mounts

The Sigma 24mm f/1.4 is compatible with Sigma’s USB dock, allowing photographers to update the lens’ firmware and change focus parameters as well as manual focus over-ride using Sigma’s Optimization Pro software. It is also compatible with Sigma’s Mount Conversion Service.

  1. Wow! That’s half the price of the brand-name lenses, but still I would not spend that much money on this focal length, especially if used on a crop Canon body (the EF-S 24 f/2.8 for most uses is enough I think). But looking forward to the review!

  2. The 50mm Art was my first upgrade from the kit lenses that came with my 70D. I was thinking the 18-35 1.8 would be my next lens, but this will be the next purchase instead. Assuming it is just as quality as other Art lenses.

    I’m thinking this could accomplish exactly what the 18-35 could, but I imagine I will eventually get a full frame body so why not get a full frame lens like the 24mm Art. Can’t wait to see and hear reviews.
