Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM
The 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is the first in Sigma’s new line of ‘Art’ lenses which are aimed at enthusiast and professional photographers, and designed as a high-quality alternative to the camera manufacturers' equivalents. Optically it’s a truly excellent lens that’s at least as good as anything else in its class, and performs extremely well on both APS-C and full frame SLRs. With fast silent focusing and solid build, its lower price makes it a compelling alternative to the camera manufacturers' equivalents.
