The SIGMA 24mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary, from the I line of premium compact prime lenses, features excellent optical performance, a brilliant F2 aperture, an all-metal construction, and a manual aperture ring. It’s been built from the ground up for mirrorless systems, and it feels perfectly balanced on contemporary full-frame equipment. It also has the outstanding resolving capability, keeping up with the latest ultra-high-resolution cameras.
The lens’ sophisticated optical construction provides clear, high-contrast images from the centre of the frame to the far corners, and it’s a great choice for night sky photography, events, and interiors because of its F2 aperture and wide field of view. The lens can be easily taken about because of its small size, making it ideal for everyday usage. The high-quality, all-metal construction featured on all SIGMA I series models adds to the overall satisfaction of owning and utilising this lens.

I series｜Premium Compact Primes for mirrorless users
The SIGMA I series features full-frame-compatible lenses that offer mirrorless users a new and better alternative, both in the experience of shooting with the lens and in the impressive results it is able to achieve.
One of the key advantages of mirrorless cameras is their smaller form-factor, and this 24mm optic is designed to be perfectly matched to these more compact systems without sacrificing performance. This combination of superb optical quality with exceptional portability, not previously possible with DSLR systems, will bring new opportunities to this and future generations of photographers.
New standards of optical performance for the Contemporary line
The SIGMA 24mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary, like the SIGMA 35mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary and the SIGMA 65mm F2 DG DN | Contemporary, combines the highest level of optical performance even at its maximum aperture of F2 and a well-balanced body.
The lens uses two SLD glass elements and one FLD glass element to correct axial chromatic aberration, which is a particular concern with bright lenses. It also incorporates two high-precision glass-moulded aspherical elements, made possible by the processing technology of SIGMA’s sole production facility in Aizu. This has enabled the total number of lens elements to be kept down and the size and weight of the lens to be reduced while providing excellent correction of various aberrations.
In anticipation of wide-angle lens applications, SIGMA’s optical designers have ensured the lens resolution is extremely high and is uniform from the centre to the periphery of the image. Sagittal coma flare is also well suppressed, giving the lens a high degree of rendering power that makes it ideal for night sky photography.
The AF drive system incorporates a quiet, high-speed stepping motor. This allows photographers to capture every detail of the spacious 24mm scene with quick, accurate, silent AF.
Exceptional I series build quality with a compact form-factor
All I series lenses have an all-metal construction. The precision-cut aluminium parts not only give the barrel a sleek, stylish finish but provide superb durability that improves the quality of the entire product. Metal materials are also used in internal structures that slide with the operation ring for added robustness. These high-precision components crafted with SIGMA’s cutting-edge metalworking technology are also used in SIGMA’s cine lens line-up for professional cinematographers and provide a tactile, ergonomic feel that makes the lens a pleasure to use.
The cover ring between the focus ring and the aperture ring has hairline processing that is also used for the rear cylinder of the Art line. This covering functions as a finger hold when attaching or detaching the lens.
