1. Introduction

Full frame f/2.8 24-70 mm lenses can be called obligatory instruments for most of professional journalists and/or their agencies. Small wonder all well-known producers try to feature such devices in their line-up. What's more, they strive to equip them with the newest technologies, the more the better: top-end optics, fast autofocus, weather-sealing gaskets, hydrophobic coatings, in short everything and anything to keep their most demanding customers satisfied.

The third-party manufacturers also don't miss such an opportunity. Sigma company have had as many as five lenses with such or similar parameters – their full list we present in the following chart.

Small wonder the new, full frame, mirrorless systems started to feature 24-70 mm instruments very soon. Sigma knew that entering the market with their new L-mount system they would have to offer a similar device and rather sooner than later. As the mirrorless construction had been already designed, all they needed was to add another type of mount. As a result in November 2019 they anounced the launch of the Sigma A 24-70 mm f/2.8 DG DN, available in two versions, L-mount and Sony FE.
