Product description
Announced Sep 17, 2012

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.

Our review

The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is a truly excellent lens, that performs as well in the field as its superb lab test results suggest. With fast silent focusing and solid build, its lower price makes it a compelling alternative to the camera manufacturers' equivalents if you don't need weather-sealing.

Good for: Photographers looking for a top-notch, fast 35mm autofocus prime without breaking the bank.

Not so good for: Anyone who shoots a lot in damp or dusty conditions.
