One of Sigma's newest lenses is the 24mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary, and it brings with the promise of good image quality and performance in a small package, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. How does it hold up in practice? This great video review takes a look at what you can expect. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the new Sigma 24mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary lens. As part of the I series, the new 24mm f/2 Contemporary comes with a variety of great features, including:

  • Mechanical aperture ring
  • Knurled metal components 
  • Two SLD and one FLD glass element for less axial chromatic aberration
  • Two high-precision glass-molded aspherical elements for reduced weight
  • Stepping motor for fast and quiet autofocus suitable for photos and video 
  • Minimum focusing distance of 9.65 inches (24.5 cm)
  • Arc-type auto/manual focus switch
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh
  • All-metal body and metal hood

With a modestly wide maximum aperture that strikes a nice balance between low-light capabilities and keeping the lens relatively light and portable, the 24mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary looks like a useful option for a range of genres. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
