Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art

 

The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art captures crisp images, opens up to f/1.4, and undercuts competing lenses on price.

Very sharp. Wide aperture. Attractive price. Available for multiple camera systems. Solid build quality. Eligible for mount conversion.

Heavy vignette effect. Omits image stabilization. Not the best option for ultra-high-resolution cameras.

Conclusions The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art isn't the only third-party option in town. The Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 has its own set of benefits, including a lower price tag, more uniform illumination, closer focus, and image stabilization. But it also has...

Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM

 

At Photokina 2012, Sigma announced a reorganization of its lens lineup into three categories - 'Contemporary' covering lightweight, flexible zooms, 'Sports' for larger telephoto lenses, and 'Art' for a wide range of optics aimed at serious...

Superb optics that beat anything else in its class ; Impressive flare resistance ; Fast, silent, and accurate autofocus ; Excellent build quality ; Very competitive price

Slightly fussy rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds under some conditions ; No weather sealing

The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is a truly excellent lens, that performs as well in the field as its superb lab test results suggest. With fast silent focusing and solid build, its lower price makes it a compelling alternative to the camera manufacturers'...

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Review

 

Sigma's produced an excellent lens in the 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG HSM, with comparatively great performance at the ƒ/1.4 aperture setting, where the lens will no doubt be used for the majority of the time. There's a lot to like here:

Lens Review: Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM

 

Sigma goes prime time with this excellent new portrait lens.

High-quality portrait lens at a great price; solid, functional build with an unpretentious design; maximum f/1.4 aperture creates a shallow depth of field and pleasing background blur for an intense effect; tack sharpness, especially when you stop down...

Sigma had been relatively quiet in 2012 in terms of new professional-grade lenses, but the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM shows that the company is back with a bang this year. While this 35mm prime had a few issues with slow focusing, especially when going from...

The lens comes in two versions: the basic non-AE version is available for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony A, Sony E, Four Thirds and Samsung mounts, while an additional AE version is exclusively available for the Nikon mount and features additional...

Outstanding performance in the corners of a high-resolution full-frame sensor even wide open ; Good build quality ; Quiet and fast AF operation ; Relatively low price compared to the big names

Performance at the borders/corners of the DX/APS-C image circle could be better ; No weather sealing

Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

 

A fast, moderate wide-angle, prime lens with professional build quality and imaging performance.

As a walkabout prime lens, Sigma's 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens is a winner, combining a very competitive price tag with excellent resolution and good all-round performance. Despite being on the large side, it is very well balanced and not out of place...
