The Sigma 24-35mm F2 DG HSM Art ($999) is the first full-frame zoom lens with a fixed f/2 aperture throughout its range. That means it captures a lot of light—twice as much when shot wide open compared with an f/2.8 zoom—and can shoot images with a very shallow depth of field.

Sigma has garnered a solid reputation for excellent optical performance with their Art series of fast aperture prime lenses, and created quite a stir with their 18-35mm f/1.8 zoom lens for APS-C sensor cameras. This new 24-35mm f/2 lens is currently the fastest zoom optic available for 35mm full frame cameras, sports a fast f/2 maximum aperture throughout the zoom range, costs around £950 and is available with Canon, Nikon and Sigma mounts.
