Just picked up a copy of this lens and first impressions are: it is fabulous! My first Sigma Art lens, upgraded to this from a Tamron 35 1.8 and Canon 17-40L. Bigger, heavier, less zoom range. But it is the sweet spot of where I shoot in that range.

Just playing a bit as we visited our neighbor's new kitten - looks ferocious, but he was just yawning.

Can't believe there are not more images for this awesome lens!

The 24-35/f2 was the first of the ultimately five Art-series lenses I owned. All were purchased as refurbs from Sigma's Online Outlet Store and, incredibly, they cost less than most of the used lenses listed on eBay! Better still, they came with a 14-day trial period and a 90-day warranty, which I took advantage of in the case of the 20/f1.4 prime (because the size of the image circle it projected wasn't large enough for my purposes and while I suspect the built-in lens hood was the cause, it could not be readily removed so I could confirm this.)

Although I've since sold all of them in favor of vintage C/Y lenses that, IMO, render my photos with a more pleasing character (but also with a lot less sharpness and resolution ... you win some and lose some, eh?), a lot of my favorite photos were taken with them and, in particular, the 24-35 zoom.

One thing that many people probably don't know (and probably don't care about, either) is that, as with many zoom designs and several other Art-series lenses, the 24-35 projects an oversize image circle. In the case of the 24-35, it's large enough to provide for a minimum of 6-8 mm of rise / fall / shift movements when the lens is used on a camera that has the capability, such as the Cambo Actus shown below with my Sony A7R. To maximize the size of the image circle it projects, I did have to slightly cut-down the lens hood but didn't have to remove it entirely, as is sometimes necessary with other lenses from other brands.

Mine was a Nikon F-mount version, because with the correct adapter, it was possible to mechanically control the aperture, which is important for the type of photography I do (long-exposures at base ISO late at night) because one of the reasons I bought into the Art lenses was their fast apertures, which made it much easier for me to see well enough to focus and compose my photos in the dark.

Anyway, even though I personally have moved on to other lenses, I still highly recommend the Art-series lenses for their combination of image quality and value and this is especially true of the 24-35. If only it -- they! -- weren't so #$)(*&#@ large and heavy, though...

I last week bought this lens for £450 and it was in absolutely just out of the box condition from a seller, only to found out when I came home it was for Nikon mount :cry: I should have checked it DAMN!

Anyway impossible to use F mount with adapter to a EF mount as I am a Canon user, so went off and sold it for £500 and made a £50 profit lol.

then added some more and purchased the EF mount version and it is coming tomorrow for delivery. I am sure all that drama I had to go through will be worth it :D

This is a three (3) image panoramic with the 24-35 f/2. Love this lens and the IQ it provides. Sotol Vista Overlook in Big Bend National Park, Texas.

Last was taken with a 72-82mm step up ring. Bad idea, but it came with the lens.. so..
