Finally... it has arrived... the Sigma 24-105mm f4 has come in for my Nikon cameras... and just in time for a good test when I travel to France. I am going to throw it on my Nikon D3 and run it through its paces photographing the Camargue horses, then stroll through the streets of Paris taking photos of the architecture during the day and the night.
If you are considering this lens please watch for the photos that I start posting next week for seven days as we wind up from the Mediterranean, through Provence and into Paris.
The Sigma 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM Art lens is a premium lens designed for full frame cameras and will also work with APS-C sensors with an effective increase in focal length. The 24-105mm F4 is a highly versatile focal range and staple everyday lens. With the increasing resolution power of new sensors, it is designed to bring out the true potential of evolving camera technology. Sigma’s 24-105mm f4 includes proprietary Sigma technology including our Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) which ensures fast, quiet and accurate autofocusing as well as our Optical Stabilizer (OS) which compensates for camera shake. A 9 blade rounded diaphragm creates beautiful background blur, while FLD and SLD glass elements compensate for various aberrations, distortion and curvature. The use of Thermally Composite Material (TSC) reduces size and weight and as part of the new Global Vision design, it is compatible with the Sigma USB dock for further customization and the new Mount Conversion Service.
