Just received my Sigma 35 mm 1.4 Art
7 months ago

I do have a Nikon DF and just bought the Sigma 35 mm 1.4. The first results did not look to good and subsequently checked the lens for front or back focussing.
It appears that this lens is heavily front focussed and this exceeds the + 20 maximum adjustment on the DF. This applies to short distances. At longer distances + 10 seems to be the solution.
Did contact Sigma who advised me to buy a USB dock to adjust the lens for the DF.
I am considering to return this lens and try the Nikon 35 mm 1.8 FX instead.
Any suggestions ???
