The Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens retails for $1599, while the Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 DG OS HSM Art lens retails for $1299. Both lenses begin shipping this month, although Nikon shooters will have to wait until July for the 24-70mm lens in their mount.
The savings are noteworthy over first-party brands. For instance, the Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L II USM lens retails for $2099 with a one and third stop handicap to the Sigma lens. Likewise, the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens retails for $1899 and doesn’t offer image stabilization like the Sigma lens.
You can find the Sigma 14mm f/1.8 DG HSM lens here at B&H Photo.
