Sigma’s new 24mm f/1.4 ART series lens offers fast f/1.4 aperture. Canon users have a much cheaper choice – the Canon 24mm EF-S f/2.8 Pancake lens, a lens that costs $700 less. how do these two lenses compare?

Vs the Canon 24mm EF-S f/2.8 Lens

Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art Benefits

  • Sharper
  • Less vignetting
  • Much Faster maximum aperture
  • Better build quality
  • Better manual focus system
  • Focus indicator

Canon 24mm f/2.8 STM Benefits

  • Much Lighter
  • Much cheaper
  • Smooth and silent AF for video

For general photography I would pick the Canon 24mm EF-S f/2.8 anytime I head out the door with my Canon T6s or 70D camera – it is small, lightweight and provides great quality.

If I am being paid to shoot an event and need to capture the best quality photos in low light or will be shooting manual focus video I will pick the Sigma 24mm f/1.4 Art.
