Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS vs Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS Comparison

Sigma announced and added the new Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art full frame lens to their lineup in late 2013.  LensRentals.com has completed their comparison for the Canon EF 24-105 f/4L ISand the Sigma 24-105 f/4 DG OS lenses.

This lens is a good replacement for Canon’s EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM and Nikon’s AF-S NIKKOR 24-120mm f/4G ED VR lenses. A lot of people ask which lens to buy! So this comparison and their conclusion is important for those who have Canon full-frame DSLRs and looking for a strong alternative.

From LensRentals conclusion :

Sigma has made a very nice zoom here at a very good price. It’s obviously not going to create the stir that occurred with their 35mm f/1.4 or 18-35 f/1.8 lenses, but it’s a nice addition to their lineup.

Canon shooters who have a 24-105 f/4 IS have no reason to change based on optics as long as the promotional pricing remains in effect. The Sigma and Canon 24-105s are nearly identical. Similarly the Nikon 24-120 has been available on discount lately, so I don’t see a big motivation for Nikon shooters to change, either.

Of course, if the pricing changes I wouldn’t hesitate to buy the Sigma instead of the name brands. If nothing else, I think the presence of the Sigma will keep Canon and Nikon prices reasonable.
