The Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 DG DN Art lens, available in a Sony E mount version, is a versatile wide-angle zoom lens you can pair your Sony full frame mirrorless camera with for real estate photography. At $1,299, this Sigma “Art” lens is surprisingly affordable for a fast zoom in an ideal focal range for real estate jobs. It’s also relatively compact and lightweight for a lens that boasts a constant f/2.8 aperture. Put this on your Sony A7 III and it’s all you’ll need to shoot everything from luxury penthouses to starter homes. Thanks to its low dispersion and aspherical lens elements, your images will have minimal to no chromatic or spherical aberrations through the whole zoom range. Meanwhile, super multi-layer coating combined with Nano Porous Coating helps prevent lens flare and ghosting. The result is your interior and exterior images will have more accurate color and richer contrast in a variety of lighting conditions. Though its portable, the Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 DG DN Art is solidly built with a weather-resistant construction and a brass bayonet mount. The front element has a water and oil-repellent coating, and the lens has a built-in hood to prevent it from getting dinged in tight spaces.

Check the price on the Sigma 14-24mm f2.8 DG DN Art for Sony E at B&H and at Amazon.

Also Good: For Canon and Nikon photographers, we recommend the Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM ($2399) and Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 ($1296), which are also solid, one-lens solutions for real estate assignments.
