Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras

You Pay: $899.00
Product Highlights
  • Aperture Range: f/1.4-16
  • Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM)
  • Floating Internal Focus System
  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 11.8"
  • Anti-Flare Super Multi-Layer Coating
  • Special & "F" Low Dispersion Elements
  • Front Filter Thread Diameter: 67mm
  • 9x Circular Aperture Blades
  • Compatible with Sigma USB Dock

The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras from Sigma is the first entry into Sigma's Art series of professional lenses, with an emphasis on artistic expression and the creative potential of the lens. With a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, floating inner focusing system, and Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) you'll have quick and accurate control over the artistic effects achieved by the lens' high quality elements.

For wide angle photography, this 35mm lens and its circular 9-bladed f/1.4 aperture ensure excellent brightness and blurred background (bokeh) effects. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

The lens' Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and floating inner focusing system ensure that you experience quick, quiet and precise autofocusing whenever you need it. Adjust focus using either autofocus (AF), or full-time manual focus, without having to switch camera modes or change settings - just flick the switch from AF to MF.

For greater build quality and strength, all metallic parts and the new Thermally Stable Composite compound material (TSC), are housed internally. Its brass made bayonet mount has both high accuracy and durability, and a special treatment is applied to its surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term daily use.

Aperture Range: f/1.4-16
With a bright maximum aperture of f/1.4 this lens allows you to capture images with beautiful defocused background bokeh effects in darker conditions - using faster shutter speeds and lower ISO sensitivities.
Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM)
This lens' motor is driven by ultrasonic waves to provide quiet, high speed autofocus. This Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotating the focus ring.
Floating Internal Focus System
For stable focusing, this lens moves its inner lens groups without changing the lens length. It also compensates for astigmatic aberration and provides extremely high optical performance for close-up photos.
Minimum Focusing Distance: 11.8"
This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 11.8" so you can capture wide-angle close-ups from nearly a foot away.
Anti-Flare Super Multi-Layer Coating
This lens' coatings reduce lens flare, internal reflections and light scattering that can occur between the surfaces of its glass elements.
USB Dock & SIGMA Optimization Pro Software
Because of its redesigned series of lenses, Sigma developed proprietary software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) and an optional USB docking system that allows you to update the lens' firmware and adjust its parameters such as focus. The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A1 Lens is compatible with the USB Dock.
Special & "F" Low Dispersion Elements
This lens incorporates "F" Low Dispersion (FLD) glass elements, which have performance equal to that of fluorite, and Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements. By optimizing the power alignment of the lens, chromatic aberration has been corrected, achieving high image quality through the entire focusing range.
DG Lens for Digital & 35mm Film SLRs
This is a large-aperture lens with wide angles and a short minimum focusing distance. Because of its great peripheral illumination, or lack of vignetting, it is an ideal lens for DSLR Cameras and traditional 35mm SLRs alike.
Sigma's Artistic A-Series Lens
Sigma has organized all of its interchangeable lenses into three product lines: Contemporary, Art and Sports. The Art line delivers high-level artistic quality with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power. The SIGMA 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM is the first lens from the Art line. Developed with an emphasis on artistic touch, Sigma's Art line lenses are designed to meet the expectations of users who value a creative, dramatic outcome above compactness and multifunction.
Front Filter Thread Diameter: 67mm
The 67mm front filter thread is fixed, allowing rotating polarizing filters to be used with the lens.
9x Circular Aperture Blades
With nine circular blades, the lens' diaphragm delivers very pleasant, soft bokeh background effects.
Brass Bayonet Mount
This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce it is applied to the surface, giving it greater strength and making it highly durable for long-term use.
Ease Of Use
For better usability, the designs of the lens cap and AF/MF switch have been improved, as well as the rubberized lens hood attachment. In order to ensure accuracy and precision, all metallic parts and the new Thermally Stable Composite material are housed internally.
Quality Control & Sigma's MTF "A1" Measuring System
Sigma used to measure lens performance with the standard MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system, using conventional sensors. However, they have since developed a proprietary MTF measuring system - dubbed "A1" - using 46MP resolution Foveon direct image sensors. Previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of their quality control inspections.

    This lens produces images that are absolutely stunning. Color, contrast, sharpness are all incredible. Bokeh is very good, and much better than some reports. I was a bit nervous in ordering this in that I went through three copies of the 50mm 1.4 lens from Sigma before giving up, each copy having miserable autofocus performance. Got a good copy of the 35mm 1.4 on the first try, autofocus is as accurate if not better as any of my canon lenses, if just a touch slower than a couple of them. The main downside to this lens is that it has made all of my others seem completely inadequate. I own 4 other lenses, and while none of them are top notch, they are generally well respected. Other than this I have a 35mm f2, 50mm 1.4, 85mm 1.8 and 24-105 f4, all by Canon. This lens is as sharp wide open as any of those other lenses are stopped down (really). None of those other lenses can touch this one for color or contrast. Images made with this just POP and have a great wow factor. Another downside to this lens is its heft. On my 6D it creates a nice balance between the lens and the body, but overall the two combined are heavy enough to be annoying after a long day of walking/shooting. The focal length and light gathering ability of this lens would make it great for street shooting, however the lens is rather large/long, an mounted to a DSLR, not the least be inconspicuous. If you have any need for this focal length whatsoever (and EVERYONE but bird/safari shooters should), you should strongly consider adding this lens to your arsenal as soon as humanly possible. It is literally so much better than my other lenses that I am selling my 35mm f2 (obviously), my 50mm and 85mm lenses. This obviously doesn't do the same things as an 85mm lens, but the pictures I get from this Sigma lens make the images I get from the 50 and 85mm lenses look incredibly dull and less compelling. I plan to keep the 24-105 for the wide and long ends, and eventually sell that when I stash away enough extra cash money to upgrade to the 24-70mm f2.8II lens.

    Canon 5D MkIII, Sigma 35mm f/1.4 plus USB focus Dock - lens arrived with significant back-focus at Infinity, short distances good with the focus Dock initially set at 0,0,0,0. Camera body's lens micro-adjust set to +10 acheived remarkably Excellent sharpness (1', 1.5') and tight zone field at f/1.4,f/2.8.
    Other end of the scale is a totally different story: Dock adjusted to -5 at Infinity brings in the proper focus zone... but center sharpness is poor at f/1.4, f/2.8, doesn't clear up until f/5.6 and f/8
    Using the MkIII's micro-adjust feature (+10 setting) delivers precise sharpness at 1' and 1.5' (with the Dock at "0, 0" first two zones). Trying to fix Infinity softness using the Dock, -5 focuses at the right distance but image is noticeably soft in the center, doesn't sharpen until f/5.6 or higher.
    Has anyone experienced an Infinity sharpness issue with this lens using a Canon body that also micro-adjusts? I can't figure out the right combination. Crisp sharpness at Infinity is a mandate.

    Comments about Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras:

    I checked all the reviews before buying this.. and i´m glad i did.
    It perfectly matches the quality of my 85 1.2L II from Canon (priced over twice as much).

    The focus is silent, sharp and precise. It could be a little faster.
    The built quality looks really good to me.

    Hood and pouch included.

      Comments about Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras:

      If you are looking for a 35mm lens; a general-purpose, walk-around lens; or a fast, wide-aperture lens, the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art lens is absolutely an awesome choice.

      It is on the heavy-side—a good sign of lots of glass and metal—and is very well-built. Contrary to some reviews that I have read, its barrel is definitely metallic, though coated with a more-comfortable engineering plastic—the same type of plastic Canon uses in the barrels of its latest L lenses.

      It has a super-quick auto-focus. That being said, I found a caveat: my copy tended to consistently front-focus right out of the box. Note that this is not a dramatic issue: it took me roughly twenty seconds to correct this once-and-for-all within camera settings. This can be done with most modern DSLRs, but I hear that it can also be done using a USB dock, also sold by Sigma. After this correction, the auto-focus is awesome—consistently-accurate.

      In terms of image quality—in particular, sharpness—this lens out-performs the Canon 35mm f/1.4L and the Canon 50mm f/1.2L, hands-down. I instead find its sharpness to be on-par with the stunningly-magnificent Canon 85mm f/1.2L: even at f/1.4, all of my images are tack-sharp from corner to corner.

      Color saturation of this lens surpasses that of any Canon L lens that I have used.

        Shooting this lens has changed the way I approach photography. I use a 5d III and shoot mostly portraits and events. Since I have placed this lens on my camera, I have barely taken it off. It's by far my favorite lens I've ever used and I have owned or used just about every canon L lens. The sigma 35mm is special and in a class all its own.

        I bought this lens because a friend of mine had it and it takes amazing pictures. I haven't witnessed first hand what the canon 35 mm 1.4 can do, however I didn't need to look any further as the price was right and the image quality superb. The best aspect of this lens to me is the large aperture at 1.4. This makes for an amazing portrait lens. Bottom line... if you want an excellent lens but can't afford the canon version, buy this one!

        Comments about Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras:

        Let me get the one minor negative out of the way, then the rest is all good: The manual focus-throw is short, making manual fine-tuning in live view finicky.

        Now for the good stuff, and there's plenty. Only had it a short while, but I plan to use this lens on a 5D and a 5DIII the same way I used my 35L -- indoor events, weddings, portraits, anything lowlight or shallow DOF -- with one significant difference: I won't hesitate to open it up.

        I got some great shots with the 35L wide open but I often felt safer stopping down to f2 or 2.8. I might eventually come to the same attitude about the Sigma 35 Art, but so far, this glass begs to be used wide open.

        Compared to the 35L wide open, the Sigma vignettes less, has less CA fringing, and is noticeably sharper when pixel-peeping. Shooting at F1.4 is a joy, even outside of center frame.

        Focus seems as fast and as accurate as that of the 35L, when using either the center or outer focus points. Have not yet shot anything moving, though.

        I got the Dock, too, and used it to optimize focus on my 5D (the original) and my 5DIII. It required a plus-tick or two at the close ranges, and several minus-ticks at infinity. The settings for my 5DIII were almost identical.

        So: Via the Sigma Dock, the new Sigma lenses can be micro-adjusted for legacy cameras that don't have microadjust! How sweet is that?

        A word about its physical looks: Many people raved about the beauty of the lens itself. I was taken aback when I unwrapped it, finding it a little too elegant, preferring the rugged handsomeness of the 35L. Not a quibble, just an observation. I do like the metal feel of the lens, and I especially love looking through it.

          Image quality of this lens is impressive, it's sharp at the widest f1.4 aperture! The build quality is really good too. I like the fact that it is all black, without any colored rings or anything (I value good looking design) looks great on my Canon 6D.

          After some initial tests I found that it presented backfocusing issues when focusing on distant subjects, but I also bought the Sigma USB Dock and correcting that issue took me less than an hour. Now it's perfect.

            I wanted a fast prime lens in this range. I rented several before making my decision to go with the new Sigma line. Not a moment of disppointment! I've had it several weeks and it has not come off my 5DMIII except to move it to my 60D. It is amazing on both cameras. I have been a glass snob for a long time. It has been "L" series lenses or nothing. I add my kudos to Sigma along with many other buyers.The lens is sharp as a tack. I bought the USB dock but have not had to adjust a thing. I've put it through it's paces as a rental. I've repeated it all now that I own it. It performs beautifully at every aperture. Images are sharp, vibrant. Colors are rich and brilliant. Bokeh is pleasing. Focus is fast an accurate.It is heavy for a lens in this range. It has the feel and look of quality and produces images that wow. I'm used to carrying much heavier lenses so this is no big deal. My only complaint is si minor that I still give it 5 stars. The lens hood easily detaches. I havent figured out why. I've had it fall off a couple times.

                Comments about Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras:

                I have been using Canon lenses almost exclusively after some OK experiences with 3rd party stuff. I've had Sigma's 10-20 and Tamron's 28-75 and 17-50, and they all were good performers but I always ended up selling them and purchasing the Canon equivalent. Since going full frame I have purchased "L" lenses exclusively and was convinced no 3rd party lens was going to measure up....until this one. I started reading all the reviews and took a leap of faith and boy am I happy I did. I had agonized between the 35 "L" and this but the reviews on here and other sites eventually swayed me. My copy of this lens was tack sharp and focused consistently right out of the box. I know some users have needed the USB attachment to achieve proper focus but I can't imagine mine getting much better. I may end up purchasing the USB hub if I continue to buy more of the "Art" lenses but for now I couldn't be happier with this lens.

                  The product quality is above my expectations. I own a Canon 7D and I use this lens regularly. This is my favorite lens so far.

                    i shoot only wide open with this thing and the detail is amazing. my copy of the lens required a firmware update. i had to buy the sigma USB dock to do it but it was well worth the price. Canon's 35mm L lens lens costs neatly 2x as much but is no where near as good.

                      very good for portraits and places where you can not use flash, because of it's big aperture, you can shoot in low light conditions. Yes, you can also use it with flash on.

                      for weddings it's little hard to use prime lens (fixed zoom) because you need to use zoom options a lot, you can't always change distance from people when it's a rush.

                      Fast, silent and accurate focus. Great bokeh. Build quality is great too. Can't wait to use it more. Only negative might be that some people may think it's too heavy. But I love the feel.

                      This lens is absolutely phenomenal when it nails focus. Sadly, it doesn't nail focus every time. Occasionally the focus falls a few inches down and to the right of where it was supposed to. I have tested the heck out of it and would be willing to call it user error if the miss didn't always drop into the same general area. Focus on the eye of a person and the focus ends up being tack sharp just right of the chin on a 2 year old. Hard to explain.. But, anyway! When this lens hits the correct focal point it is amazing. I love the color rendition and the beautiful bokeh it's quite easy to achieve.

                      I use this lens for my family and senior portrait sessions. It is crisp and versital in low light/natural light situations. I was going to buy the a similar lens by another retailer, and after reading the reviews on this Sigma lens, I decided to go with this lens instead. LOVE it.

                      Using Nikon lenses and cameras since film days, this is my first Sigma gear, and it is as excellent as Nikon single lenses. I use it for streetphotography, daily news and conflicts. It is fast and clear. So sharp. You understand the quality of the lens when mouth to the body.I reccomend it for photojournalists and documantery photographers.

                        A wonderful alternative to the costly Canon and Zeiss 35mm primes. I'm particular about everything and at all costs stay away from third party manufacturers. However this lens is an exception. Well pleased and satisfied.
