In recent years, Sigma has won over photographers and filmmakers alike with their high-quality Art lineup of lenses.

Sigma recently announced a new addition to that lineup, one that is sure to please lovers of wide-angle lenses the world over.

Like Sigma’s other Art lenses, the 24mm will be available in Sigma’s proprietary mount, as well as Nikon and Canon mounts.
