On November 22, Sigma announced the price and release date of the "24-70mm F2.8 DG DN," a large-diameter standard zoom lens for full-size mirrorless that had been announced for development. The suggested retail price is 135,000 yen, excluding tax, and is an ambitious price setting for a large aperture standard zoom with an open F2.8. The release date is December 20th. There are two types for Sony E mount and L mount, and the price is the same for both mounts.
Sony's standard zoom lens for E-mount is open with the open F2.8 through flagship model "FE 24-70mm F2.8 GM SEL2470GM" [actual price is around 278,000 yen including tax + 10% point] There is a popular F4-through model "FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS SEL24105G" [actual price is around 165,000 yen including tax + 10% points]. Sigma's 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN is expected to be about 20,000 to 30,000 yen cheaper than the popular FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS. It seems to be.
The 24-70mm F2.8 DG DN is a standard zoom lens designed exclusively for mirrorless cameras and ensuring the highest level of optical performance. While ensuring uniform optical performance to the periphery, the size and weight have been reduced by using a mirrorless design. Unlike the single-lens reflex camera version, it does not have an in-lens image stabilization mechanism.
The shortest shooting distance is 18cm on the wide side, and you can shoot close to the hood tip. The shortest shooting distance on the tele side is 38cm. The lens is equipped with a dustproof and splashproof mechanism, as well as a zoom lock mechanism. It also supports Sigma's original mount exchange service.
The maximum diameter of the lens is 87.8mm, the length is 122.9mm, and the weight is about 835g [dimensions are those of the L-mount version]. Because it is about 1,020g [sigma version] for single-lens reflex cameras, the weight was reduced by about 185g.
