The new SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | Art lens is an excellent choice for photographers seeking a lens compatible with the standard shooting range of 35mm full size image sensor that can bring out the potential of a high resolution sensor. The SIGMA 24-105mm F4 DG OS HSM | A is the perfect lens as it covers the basic shooting range from wide to mid-telephoto. It provides the convenience of a zoom lens enabling photographers to capture various subjects without the need to change lenses. Moreover, its constant aperture of F4, OS (Optical Stabilizer) and HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) enhances the lens’ usability. It is ideal for portraits, landscapes and general photography. And, with a minimum focusing distance of 45cm and a maximum magnification ratio of 1:4.6, this lens is excellent for close-up photography.
