We are very excited about the Art line of Sigma lenses continuing on with a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens of their own! The Art line is comprised of superb image quality and excellent build quality, two things Sigma has struggled with in the past. These new lenses are far sharper than most of their Canon counterparts and much cheaper to boot.
Special low dispersion elements counter-act chromatic aberrations and distortion. A Super Multi Coating on certain elements give you higher contrast and excellent color rendition. The Hyper Sonic Motor provides fast, silent, and accurate autofocus. Sigma's OS optical stabilization provides extra protection against camera shake.
This lens is completely EF full-frame compatible with either full-frame bodies or APS-C crops.
