Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DN Art is a complete rethinking of the original lens. It shaves off almost a pound in weight, yet uses more glass elements, more iris blades. It also uses an 11-blade aperture diaphragm, up from nine in the older lens.

  • Better contrast-detection autofocus
  • Narrow field of view
