Pros: Fast and accurate AF, usable focal range, sharp at 24 mm (fully comparable wqith primes), effective VR
Cons: Brutal vignetting wide open (not so easy to remove), less sharp within 80-105mm focal range
Opinion: Not a bad value for money, but brutal vignetting wide open and f4 is limiting factors. At the end of the day, it is better to use a prime lenses :) Fast and accurate AF, usable focal range, sharp at 24 mm (fully comparable wqith primes), effective VR, less sharp within 80-105mm focal range. Otherwise, bokeh is quite pleasing, although not much pronounced due to the f4.

Opinion:It's a real "everything do" and it does everything right. Five basic focal points in a single lens (24mm, 35mm, 50mm, 85mm and 105mm) allow you to do virtually any photograph. Ideal to take on the go, it allows you to face any photo release without any particular regrets. The sharpness is remarkable for a zoom. It has a very good contrast. Never had a chromatic aberration problem. The autofocus engine is fast and precise (my model showed no front/back focus problems, a problem that unfortunately afflicts many Sigma). No distortion on the entire focal excursion. Constant F4 opening. Against all odds, it has a very nice F4 blur that is able to return excellent portraits. Only neo: vignette a lot at 24mm, but the problem is easily solved in post production. Strange.
Pros:Sharpness, color fidelity, AF speed, stabilizer, build quality, price, versatility
Cons:Didn't buy it before
Opinion:For fear of incompatibility or receiving a model with focus issues, I couldn't decide on buying this lens. Then I started to suffer a bit for the short focal of my Nikon 24-70 f2.8 G , and especially for the poor performance of the 24-120 f4 Vr (always Nikon) and I took the SIGMA. What to say ... This glass made the other two INUTILI and outclassed! I'm using the SIGMA 24-105 ART on my Z6 (with adapter) and on the D850 with incredible taste and pleasure! The engraving and sharpness seem almost at the level of a fixed, the colors are natural and without dominant. The vignette (easily corrected in pp) is nothing compared to that of the 24-120 f4 Nikon! Also, I was amazed by the blurred quality that I just didn't expect from such an all-rounder lens. The weight? There's a lot of glass inside and the construction is made of metal, you can't do miracles! But I think he can sustain a nice photo trip alone in 90% of cases, without bringing other lenses. In short, this is the RE of the all-rounder for fullframe (at least in the Nikon house) and the limitation of the F4 opening does not seem significant to me with the sensitivities that have today's sensors. Highly recommended!
Opinion:Purchased a few months ago, the first impressions are great. The thing that struck me the most is the sharpness and tonal passages between light and shadow that considered it to be a zoom I did not expect so soft. At the moment I find no negative factor except the lampshade that tends to unscrew easily but maybe it is a problem of my goal.
Cons:the fearsome AF calibration and (perhaps) the weight
Opinion:The lens immediately offers a feeling of robustness and construction with high-end materials. the optics are very sharp but like all sigma (look here on the forum the post of friend hopaccio58) must be calibrated, and the calibration is a break of boxes with few equals. once fixed, however, it becomes a very very valuable tool. the classic never again without. I use it on the D750 and before I used it on D7200 although on APS-C, starting from 36, it was a little too long at the bottom. definitely to recommend.
