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.
