Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM
|I own it||I want it||I had it|
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.
