DxOMark Published the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art (Nikon) Lens Review

DxOMark published their Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art (Nikon) lens review and test results: Tested on the Nikon D800, the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art achieved an overall DxOMark score of 25 points, with a combination of 17 P-Mpix Sharpness, 4.6 TStop Transmission, 0.1% Distortion, -1.3 EV Vignetting and 6μm Chr.aberration - the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 Art ranks fifth place for all wide-angle zooms DxOMark has tested on the Nikon D800.



Conclusion from DxOMark:

Sigma’s Art range of high-performance, super-sharp optics, designed to maximize the high-resolution sensor potential of DSLRs such as the D800, have gained a formidable reputation for quality and value. The Sigma 12-24mm f/4 A isn’t quite on par with the sharpness potential we’ve seen with some of Sigma’s wide-angle Art prime lenses, such as the 24mm f/1.4 A or 35mm f/1.4 A, but for a wide-angle zoom lens, it still performs exceptionally well on the D800. It delivers great performance across the board, with excellent sharpness that rivals the own-brand Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G alternative; best in-class distortion control with minimal curvature at either end of the zoom; and well-controled vignetting and chromatic aberration. Priced between the Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G and the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8, it’s a good value, too. The Tamron offers a couple of extra features, such as the faster f/2.8 maximum aperture and image stabilization to boost its low-light credentials, but the Sigma’s wider 12mm focal length will have a different appeal for many full-frame landscape and architectural photographers.

Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art Lens for Nikon F: $1,599 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
