Move on. Color rendering. Many people write that Sigma "turns yellow". The way it is. Although I would say "golden". But my previous Canon was different in the same way!
That is already there, that is. Quite powerful at open and quite noticeable at closed aperture. It remains to check - what if it will sometimes give some kind of creative effect?
Amazing! There are almost no blockages of vertical lines, unlike Canon! Considering the ways of correcting distortions that the latest versions of Photoshop give us, I think that the problem of geometric distortions on this lens will disappear altogether.
Yes ... here the lens is weak. I even think that the specific software on the open is caused precisely by the fact that chromatics (even in low-contrast scenes) asserts itself very actively, as if "fluffing up" the edges of objects.
Amazingly soft, smooth and artistic at 135mm focal length! Despite the drop in aperture to f / 4.5, the picture looks like it was shot with a fixed lens.
Here the lens made me happy. Yes, there are hares, but the camera does not go blind and it is quite possible to solve various creative tasks when shooting against the sun.
Up to focal 30mm you can shoot at f / 2.8! At 35mm we get f / 3.5. At 88mm we have f / 4.0. And only then the aperture decreases to f / 4.5. But you must admit that such aperture at such focal lengths at the zoom is cool!
The lens is assembled very solidly. In the usual position it is compact, in the TV range it begins to look very impressive. Weighty, but not critical. All control rings are at hand. There is no distance scale, but it's not scary for me with focus peaking.
Perhaps the best travel zoom in its class. The Tamron 24-135 f / 3.5-5.6 (anniversary edition) outperforms it in sharpness, but I didn't like the picture. Tamron 28-105 f / 2.8 shines with color saturation and constant aperture, but ... falls short of focal lengths.
So Sigma AF 24-135 mm f / 2.8-4.5 Aspherical IF is a godsend for people who are too lazy to rearrange lenses on a hike, but still want to have a picture of decent quality.
An example of shooting a video is given below (starting from 3.43). The first scene was shot with erroneous gimbal settings on a Sony A7 Mark II. All video was shot at a focal length of 135mm
