Samples

The following images were taken with the Sigma 12-24mm f4.0 Art lens mounted on a Nikon D810 body. The images are RAW files developed in Lightroom 6.8 with camera standard settings, no lens profiles, CA-removal=ON, Noise Reduction=OFF, sharpening=35/0.5/36/10. The individual exposure details are available for each image.

All of the images are available to download in their original formats for analysis at Flickr. These files are for personal evaluation only and cannot be used in another publication or website without permission.
