Overview
The Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG HSM OS Art is a premium workhorse zoom lens designed for the latest high megapixel DSLRs. A constant aperture of 2.8 through the zoom range makes this a highly versatile tool and a brand new Optical Stabilization (OS) system helps compensate for camera shake. Though a common focal length, the Sigma 24-70mm Art brings a new level of usability and durability featuring a rugged metal barrel and an emphasis on image quality. Building off the experience from the 12-24mm Art, the aspherical elements used in the 24-70mm F2.8 OS Art undergo a highly precise level of polishing, producing elements thicker in the center than on the edges. This process creates stunning image quality and beautiful circular bokeh. Like each and every Global Vision Lens, the Sigma 24-70mm F2.8 DG HSM OS Art is handcrafted at our single factory in Aizu, Japan and undergoes individual evaluation before leaving Sigma’s facility.

Excellent Build Quality and Performance
Sigma’s 24-70 f2.8 ART v2. The wait for me was finally over. After much research I purchased my first ART series lens. This lens traveled to Russia with me my first week of ownership. This is not my first Sigma lens, but is my first ART lens. I was so impressed with the performance and clarity of the contemporary series on my APS-C body that I knew I had to go ART when I went FF. I've paired it with a 6D2. It's 100% compatible. Sigma’s contemporary line is fantastic. The quality and workmanship of the ART series is phenomenal. Big, solid and lots of glass here. At 82mm and 2.24lbs this is a hefty lens. For comparison, Canon’s 24-70 II is 1.77lbs.

Why did I go with the Sigma? I wanted IS. Have a big lens.. shooting in less than favorable lighting.. no tripod. No problem. You’ve been on a shoot all day.. you're tired, fatigued.. IS saves the day. Do you need it, no, but it did give me pause when considering the Canon which is quite a bit more $$$. You do get a lighter lens, and if that is super important to you, buy the Canon. The IS is quiet too. Once again, a feather is Sigma’s cap, remarkable.

Moisture and dust resistance is very high. You can feel the build quality. It's a precision device and this is apparent when you mount and hold it. Controls are smooth, switches have a positive click and are properly recessed so you won’t turn a feature on/off unintentionally. Zoom and focus rings have just the right amount of drag.

In the end what we all want is a lens that helps us take good pictures. This lens has all of Sigma's bells and whistles. It's exceeded my expectations in both performance and budget. The pictures I've captured are stunning. I'm getting fantastic results in less than optimal conditions. Both in poor and low lighting. Also with dimly lit hand held shots. The AF is fast, quiet and razor sharp. I borrowed Canon's 24-70 II the previous week and do not see any difference in image quality or operation. Sharp with beautiful detail and color. Amazing!

Sigma has had a challenging time fulfilling the second round of orders for this lens. Those who ordered early received theirs starting the end of June. By the end of July, this lens was out of stock and unavailable, you couldn't even get it directly from Sigma. You still can’t as of this writing (11-26-17). Took about 5.5 weeks for me to receive my copy. The wait was worth it. So happy with this purchase. It does not disappoint.

Fantastic Lens
So, I wanna get the elephant out of the room, if focus breathing scares you, this lens does, only to about 60mm, but it is there. To me, it has had little to no effect. All of the competing lenses except the Nikon focus breath, so if focus breathing is worth another $1000, go for it. Otherwise, this lens is sharper than any of the 24-70's I have used. It is wicked fast AF, amazing. The build quality is intense for an art lens, definitely my beefiest lens, I love every part of the build. The vibration compensation is EASILY the best I have ever used. I was able to actually go 8 stops below the reciprocal rule and get multiple sharp shots handheld, and it works much better than the Tamron VC for video, you won't eliminate the need for a steadicam completely, but for amateur videos you can get away with handholding almost any time.

Yes, it is good!
I have got this lens now for two days - At the time of this review it must be less than a week on the market, indeed I did not hesitate buying because it is days before the summer break.
Having worked for years solely with primes in this range my first shots appeared a little disappointing. However, that was probably because these are close-ups at 70mm f2.8. Here the lens has a marked Halo and it isn't very sharp. The halo is gone at f4.0, and the sharpness OK. My next shots were very convincing however. Full open also at f2.8 it is tack sharp. The real astonishment is that it out performs my prime EF28mm f2.8 IS - except in about mid 30% of the picture, i.e in the center. In particular in the corners this zoom has a markedly better contrast, less chromatic aberration, and is less soft. At both f2.8 and f5.6! Well, could be a focusing issue, so I am curious whether this will be confirmed in better reviews than my limited trial.
So, I would rate it a four star quality, primarily because of the halo at 70mm at 2.8, which is problematic because of portraits, and some the somewhat plasticy looking plastic parts (its build quality appears otherwise quite excellent)
