LensTip tested the new announced Sigma 12-24mm f/4 DG HSM Art lens (Amazon/ B&H/ AdoramaeBay) and posted a detailed review. This new wide angle zoom features excellent image quality, no problems at chromatic aberration and astigmatism and silent and accurate autofocus. What is most important is its low price, $1,200 cheaper than Canon EF 11-24!

Conclusions from LensTip:

Spherical aberration makes it lose in the resolution category at the maximum focal length but it is able to compete with the Canon on equal terms at the shorter end. What’s more, the Sigma is notably better when it comes to lateral chromatic aberration, distortion, vignetting or the performance against bright light.

They also posted several sample images taken with Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Just enjoy!
