Sigma 24mm f/1.4 DG HSM | A review – Resolution

Our Applied Imaging tests reveal a lens that’s impressively sharp in the centre when wide open, and while the corners are softer, they’re by no means bad. Everything sharpens up on stopping down, with the centre reaching its very best at f/2.8. Best results overall are achieved at f/5.6-11, with f/16 revealing a little softening from diffraction. We tested the lens on the 22MP full frame EOS 5D Mark III.
