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.

A spectacular lens for the price - and a wonderful lens for any money...

I've spent a long while with the Nikon 35mm f/1.4 G and it's always been a stellar performer, used for wedding and event photography. I recently had to have this serviced and a friend loaned my this Sigma in the meantime. On first shooting, I was really genuinely startled how well this performed in comparison. Unbelievably sharp wide open, and (whilst a subject of taste!) absolutely lovely non-distracting bokeh. Vignetting (heavy-ish, but very nicely shaped) disappears around f/4. Focus is relatively quick, accurate and repeatable on my D800, and rarely hunts in anything but the gloomiest of conditions, where it may tend to back-focus a touch.

Now I've got the Nikon back I've shot them side by side and, amazingly, the Sigma is significantly sharper right up to f/5.6 where they perform pretty much identically through to f/16 (as pretty much any similar lens would do too)...spectacular.

The Nikon is staying as I've already invested in it, but I've now got one of these too and this is my first choice to go in the bag...if I were buying today this would be my first choice full stop.

If you're going to get a fast 35mm, this can't be beaten.

Optical performance is excellent, sharp all over, even wide open, bokeh is very good and it focuses fast and quietly. It's currently the best value 35mm prime lens for full-frame users.

The weight is listed, so I haven't marked it down for this reason, but beware this is a very heavy lens thanks to its build quality and because it's f/1.4. One of the attractions of prime lenses is often their exceptional performance in a small and lightweight package, so be aware that this lens, coupled with a full-frame camera, is not a light combination.

If weight is a concern for you, I would ask yourself if you really need f/1.4. For your consideration, the Nikon 28mm f/1.8, although not quite the same field of view as 35mm (although close enough, in my opinion) performs equally well optically, is half the weight (330g vs 665g) and approximately 30% cheaper at the time of writing.

First off, a warning: Sigma still have terrible QC issues!

The first copy of this lens I received was back focusing horrifically. I did all the usual tests, after initially noticing it wasn't sharp where I was pointing focus. And no, it wasn't user error just because it's a 1.4, like Sigma will try to make you believe! It was off, by a significant margin, so I sent it back to the supplier. They contacted Sigma, who told them, to tell me, the customer, to wait for them to check it out. Well, I wasn't having that and requested a new copy or a refund. fair play to the store for seeing it my way and sending on a new copy, they will deal with Sigma on the other.

Anyway, now that I have a decent, proper focusing version, I can say that all the reviews around the net are bang on! It really is a gem of a lens. It's nice and weighty, being a 1.4, without being over-sized. It balances really well on the D800E, and looks the part too. Sigma have got their new look right, with lovely sleek lines, smooth polished steel, discreet markings, and the hood snaps into place definitively - the hood also has a rubber seal, which is a nice touch. Though the lens itself does not have sealing near the mount, shame ... but considering the price difference between this and the Nikon 35 1.4, we'll let that slide.

So how does it perform? Admirably. It's sharp on focus point at 1.4, and stopped down to f/2 and beyond is as sharp as you'd like. there is strong vignetting wide open, but where the vignetting is, is going to be OOF/bokeh anyhow, and it's easily corrected in LR. There is no profile for this model in LR4 currently, but I found that sigma 24-70 is close enough, with minor manual adjusting. Vignetting has mostly gone by f/2.8 and the lens continues to sharpen right through to f/8.

I bought a D600 in the summer and it was only when I got this lens a month ago that I finally began to appreciate what the camera could do! I use it 90 percent of the time. I love the colours and am amazed by the sharpness. It is wonderfully solid, very fast to focus and the DOF at f1.4 is fantastic. An increasing number of photojournalists are using this piece of kit and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

After reading many positive reviews of this lens and having trouble finding available, I finally bought it... and I can say I have no regrets. Excellent quality and works flawlessly with Nikon D800.

I read several reviews online before purchasing this lens, the majority of which sung its praises. I can definitely say that they are correct. This lens is SHARP! Even at f1.4 its sharp, you don't need to stop it down at all to get a sharp picture! Its sharper at 1.4 than my 50mm 1.8 @ f2.8!

AF is fast and accurate, bokeh is beautiful, its built to last a lifetime, and did I mention its sharp?!

Only downside is the size and weight, but you are getting a pro lens, not a consumer grade lens. If you are used to using a Nikon 50mm 1.8, this will seem enormous compared. But this wasn't worth marking it down over, as it is such an impressive bit of kit.

The perfect street photography lens IMO.
