It's a hot summer afternoon in downtown LaGrange, Kentucky. Main Street is buzzing with commerce, bluegrass musicians are set up by the cafe, CSX train Q231 makes its appearance - and photographer William Beecher is on hand to document this unique slice of Americana. "The cramped street canyon seems designed for a wide-angle shot," Beecher says. "I'm ready with the Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art lens on my camera. It's perfect for opening up the scene."

"The unmistakable sound of a train whistle warns street traffic to clear the way, just as the kids strike up a train song, which is the icing on the cake. I’m in heaven, thanks to my Sigma 14-24mm F2.8 DG HSM Art lens!"

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.
