Product Description

Product Description

One of Sigma's finest creations yet, this lens sets a new benchmark for performance, offering quality that exceeds expectations in every way. Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power, our new Art line delivers superior image quality for high-level artistic expression. This new lens embodies the concept of our new Art lenses.

Our Art line delivers high-level artistic quality Sigma is organizing all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art and Sports. Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power, our Art line delivers high-level artistic expression. Developed with the maximum emphasis on artistic touch, our Art line lenses are designed to meet the expectations of users who value a creative, dramatic outcome above compactness and multifunction. Along with landscapes, portraits, still-life, close-up and casual snaps, they're perfect for the kind of photography that unleashes the inner artist. Ideal for studio photography, they offer just as much expressive scope when capturing architecture, starry skies, underwater shots and many other scenes. The SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is the first lens from the Art line.

Unsurpassed Optical Performance To actualise a high-performance lens, one of the essential elements is aberration correction. This lens incorporates FLD (“F” Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, and SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, and by optimizing the power alignment of the lens, both types of aberration have been corrected. The lens achieves ultra-high image quality through the entire focusing range. Also, by appropriate alignment of aspheric lenses, astigmatism and field curvature are corrected. The result is superior optimum resolution even in peripheral areas.

Attractive blur effect Correction of coma aberration enabled less blur on a point light source in peripheral areas, and the function is best used for astrophotography and illuminations. It is also possible to create an attractive blur to the out of focus areas. The aspheric lens elements used as the first lens have secured peripheral brightness while correcting distortion. The rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image.

Flare and ghosting conscious design In order to achieve high rendering on this flagship lens, flare and ghosting were thoroughly measured from an early stage to establish an optical design which is resistant to strong incident light such as backlight. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

Hyper Sonic Motor The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring. With the enhanced AF algorithm, smoother AF is achieved.

Brass made bayonet mount This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term use.

Ease of use The new product lines incorporate rubber for the attachment part of the provided lens hood. For better usability, the design of the lens cap and AF/MF changeover switch have been improved. In order to ensure high accuracy of the product, all metallic parts and the new compound material, TSC (Thermally Stable Composite), which has high affinity to metal parts, are housed internally.

Evaluation with Sigma's own MTF measuring system “A1” Sigma used to measure lens performance with MTF measuring systems using conventional sensors. However, they have now developed their own proprietary MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system (A1) using 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors. Even previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of their quality control inspections. All SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM lenses will be checked using the “A1” before they leave the factory.

“Made in Japan” All Sigma's manufacturing, right down to moulds and parts is carried out under an integrated production system, entirely in Japan. Sigma is now one of the very few manufacturers whose products are solely “made in Japan”. Their sophisticated products have satisfied professionals and lovers of photography all over the world, because the manufacturing is based on genuine craftsmanship, underpinned by the passion and pride of their experts.

After moving up to full frame from a Nikon D7000 to a Canon 5D MK iii I didn't have much cash left a few months ago for any expensive glass. My first lens with the Canon was their 50mm 1.4 prime. Some shots I loved but there was something that surprised and disappointed me with that lens. It didn't seem to render as beautifully as my old 50mm I had on my Nikon! Anyway, after then purchasing a Tamron 24-70 and being very pleased with it I decided to look around for something to replace my 50mm Canon prime.

I came across a review of this Sigma lens and became very interested. After reading a great review on DPREVIEW and some other stella reviews I decided to take the plunge. Spending upwards of £700 on a prime lens is expensive but after just a few hours with this lens I am blown away.

Before I get into the results there is something very different about this lens compared to what is out there at the moment. It is an absolute beauty to look at physically. Whilst this is of course not important at all it gave me a wonderful first impression when I opened the box, as did the nice case it comes with.

Photos on my Canon with this lens are beautiful. They bokeh is smooth, very pleasant and very natural. However it is the sharpness across the range that blows me away with this lens. Straight out of the camera the results are astounding. If there is a case to be had for prime lenses then this is it. I really wondered if it was worth spending what is a lot of money for a lens just to have the limitation of one focal length but the sheer quality here is incredible. Apparently comparable lenses from Canon cost more money and results do not better the Sigma.

There is one reason to buy this lens - if you've got a great camera you will only ever do it justice by buying expensive and brilliant glass. This lens is expensive but worth every penny. I love it!

I ordered this lens half expecting to have problems with auto focus and I did. It wasn't a case that it required fine tuning for my camera (Canon 7d) which I wouldn't have minded as I'm prepared to work hard for perfection. No it lacked consistency, it was out of focus most of the time and sometimes was worse than others. Was a non starter for me. I have been so impressed with the reviews I wasn't prepared to give up so I asked Amazon for a replacement and full marks to them, was at my door within two days, first class delivery which I didn't ask for. The second lens was completely different, consistent and AF was absolutely perfect. Well it was at 1-3 ft but slightly out at 6-infinity. (I'm being very very picky here wanting perfection) So I decided to purchase the USB docking station which allowed me to adjust that particular range. The software splits the lens into four ranges so you can adjust any one or all four if required. I tweaked the range I wanted by +10 and perfection achieved. I have a Canon 50mm and comparing the two on AF, the Sigma is now more accurate without doubt. I'm so so glad I persevered with this lens as it's become my work horse. The sharpness and colour rendition is absolutely beautiful. I won't go into all the construction and feel of the lens as this has been done enough by others but suffice it to say its my favourite lens. I've still given it 5* even though I had a problem, I'm just so over the moon with the quality of my photos.

I received the lens a few hours ago and I imediately went into my studio to try it out. I recently borrowed the Canon 35mm f1.4 so that was the benchmark I was using. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I always test out my lenses as soon as I get them using various focus charts. This has proved useful in the past as I have had problems with some lenses usually with eaither back or front focusing. The test also give me a good idea of how a lens performs throughout its range. Well absolutely no problems with this little beauty. Focusing si fast, silent and precise at all apertures and subject to camera distances. The wide open performance is amazing and slightly better than the more expensive Canon lens. I shall be using the lens on a studio shoot tomorrow so that will be a real world test. I shall return to this review with the results.

It is as sharp as the review says, but please mind that tests are done in live view in controlled environment. In real life I went through two copies and what lets this lens down is autofocus: if it works fine at close distance it will not work fine at long distance, either you get it to work on the center point or the outer points (this is also after it went to Sigma to fix this), also shifts quite a bit depending on lighting conditions, and it is never consistent. So, good lens, but if you are looking for a lens you can trust when AF is critical (e.g. f1.4) then I am afraid you need the Canon one.

35mm. That's the lens I ever wanted to have. I begin with APS-C with a Canon 550D+50mm f1.4. Great camera, great lens but, APS-C.

So I acquire a Canon 6D. Wonderful camera and test my 50mm. Still great lens but.. still not a 35mm like I ever wanted.

I put this lens in my Canon 6D and this is the sharpest lens I ever have. The product is nicely presented, robust, heavy, a tank. The images taken with that lens surpass every other images I have taken before with other lens.

I will only get it off my 6D to put my Canon 24-70mm or 70-200mm.

I don't know if it's the best in the market, but for that price and quality, I can't complain, the result is fantastic.
