When the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DN ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for full-frame mirrorless cameras debuted, it wowed landscape and astro landscape photographers with its wide-angle zoom that offers remarkable resolution that is perfect for full-frame mirrorless cameras.
The lens offers One FLD glass and five SLD glass elements that are appropriately arranged to suppress chromatic aberration to the edge of the frame. Three aspherical lenses, including a large-diameter aspherical lens at the foremost surface, are used to effectively minimize coma flare, etc., thereby achieving mind-blowing resolution. The super multi-layer coating is combined with a newly developed NPC (Nano Porous Coating). The lens has been designed to be less susceptible to strong incident light such as backlight.
Incorporating a stepping motor enables the high speed, quiet AF drive. The AFL button which can be assigned with various functions widens the range of operations available on the lens. The lens features a dust- and splash-proof structure, along with a water- and oil-repellent coating on the frontmost surface of the lens, which further supports shooting in various environments.
The lens comes with a rear filter holder equipped with a fall prevention lock for attaching sheet type rear filters for shooting starry skies.
