Best FX wide zoom

Sigma’s 12-24mm ul­tra-wide zoom has long been the widest lens that you can fit on a Nikon FX body, with­out go­ing fish­eye. Sigma also makes a smaller 8-16mm edi­tion of the lens for DX-for­mat cam­eras, but our award-win­ning 12-24mm is ac­tu­ally a new ‘Art’ line lens.

The new 12-24mm de­liv­ers the same mon­strously wide view­ing an­gle as its pre­de­ces­sor, but of­fers the ad­di­tional ad­van­tages of a con­stant max­i­mum aper­ture, im­pres­sive build qual­ity, up­rated glass and faster au­tofo­cus. Lev­els of dis­tor­tion are in­cred­i­bly low for such a wide-an­gle lens, in­creas­ing its ef­fec­tive­ness for land­scape and ar­chi­tec­tural shooting. It’s also im­pres­sively sharp to­wards the edges and cor­ners of the frame.

BUY if… You want the widest pos­si­ble view­ing an­gle from a rec­ti­lin­ear lens, with­out sac­ri­fic­ing im­age qual­ity.
