Hello. I would appreciate it if somebody shared his/her experience with the Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM focusing speed and accuracy for indoor photography of moving people. For indoor non-stationary sceneries I use my 5DIII paired with the 24-70 2.8L II lens. This is a superb combo, enabling plausible shots at 1/125s, f/2.8 and ISO speeds between 1600 and 6400 in most of the situations and most often requiring no flash. I mostly shoot my two little vivid kids playing, hence focusing speed and...

Hey everyone, I'm kinda new to documentary photography, I own a Canon 550D, and I want to buy a new lens (since I only own the 18-55mm and a 55-250mm) to suit the field. So I've kinda narrowed my choices down to either the Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS USM, or the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM. Regarding the Sigma, I haven't dealt with fixed focus lenses before which makes me a little hesitant to lose the range, even though i seen that it has great reviews. Another factor is the fact that I have a...

Hi all, I have an A77 and a Minolta 50mm f1.7 and am tempted by the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens. is it enough of an improvement to justify the purchase? Does it noticeably outperform the 16-50 SSM Sony lens even? My local store does not stock one otherwise I'd test it myself. Opinions appreciated, thanks! --Prejudice is ignorance

I bought a D610 not long ago and my goal is to have a nice small set of primes—as in two or three—because I like how my creativity works, when I'm limited like that. I'm planning on buying the Nikon 85mm f/1.8G, I already have the 50mm f/1.8G, but I plan to sell it, and now I need to be sure about what my second lens will be. So far I'm torn between two lenses: the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art and the Nikon 28mm f/1.8G. The Nikon is cheaper, the Sigma is sharper wide open, the Sigma also handles...

Hi all, anyone have any experiences with the Sigma 35 1.4 Art lens, and/or the LA-EA4 adapter on the A7/R? The reason I ask is that I am somewhat considering this combo to use on my A7R. 35mm is my most relied on focal length and i am unsatisfied with the specs of the sony/zeiss 35 2.8 FE lens (to slow). i have some manual options already in 35, the voigtlander 1.2 nokton, and the 35 1.7 ultron. I enjoy the 1.2 nokton very much, but it is a bit more of a specialty lens what with the manual...

Hi, I am trying to decide betweeen spending my money on a 6D or a 60D with a Sigma 35mm f1.4 lens. I already have a Canon 135mm f2 L and a 85 f1.8 lenses. I use to shoot people on the streets, when I travel... If I buy the 60D, I would sell it someday to buy a full frame. If I buy the 6D I will wait and buy this lens when I get the money... My budget is around $1.500, so help me to make the best decision... Best regards.

Howdy folks. My d800 is in for a service so I had a chance to do a quick test today with a mates d800e. We tested a bunch of lenses including his new 16-35, and ebay special 28-105d and his old 35mm f1.4 ais. Tests were pretty quick and dirty, but I'd felt that the few shots I'd done on my canon 7d weren't showing the ridiculous sharpness this lens is supposed to show. Tests supported this.  16-35 was sharper with @f4, the 28-105 was sharper at 5.6 than the sigma 35mm @ F4.  (albeit with less...

Hi all, I am currently planning to buy a Sony A7. Want to choose a 35mm lens for it and really love Sigma 35mm F1.4 art image even I know it is heavy. Did anyone is A7 able to do AF with the La-ea3 adaptor? If yes, how the AF speed with it(How slow?)? I know it should be slow in result however since I don't have any A mount lens so don't want to buy the expensive la-ea4 just for 1 lens. Thanks.

Hey guys, I have this issue with DigitalRev customer service and i don't really know what to do now. And Im wondering maybe someone have any tips how I can sort this out.. A month ago I bought a Sigma 35 1.4 DG lens, I was doing a lot of research where to buy. Digitalrev was £100 cheaper and the review of the shop was really good. Looked like everyone is happy with this internet shop. So everything was perfect, good price, fast shipping. And lens was good, sharp etc.. But after a few days I...
