    Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art

    I'm considering selling my Nikon 35mm 1.8g and not getting the nikon 20mm 1.8g that I was looking at and instead getting this Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art
    I think I can get the Sigma for about 1/2 of what the Nokon 20mm would cost if I sold the 35mm.


    Any opinions or advice would be appreciated.

    I'm a fan of the ART lenses.

    I didn't go with the zoom, but have done several of the primes. The build quality is excellent, and the price is usually (with the exception of the 50mm) a better bargain than the Nikon equivalent. From the ART zooms that I've looked at, I don't think you can go wrong.

    The Sigma 24-35mm f/2 is a superb lens.

    ive used the lens for 2 weddings. very limited range but excellent performance
    build is amazing. super smooth zoom feel. useable at f/2. funny how you start zooming and poof, no more range. focuses quite close also

    I've decided to keep my 35mm f1.8g and pickup the 20mm f1.8g. I think the added weight of the Sigma 24-35 is a factor as is the loss of 2mm on the wide end.
