  • Minimum Focusing Distance: 11.8"

The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens for Nikon 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.

    I primarily shoot low light events and concerts including Nightclub and some sports.Got my Sigma 35mm/1.4 on my D700. It is spot on!!. No Fine Tune Focusing etc. No back or front focusing. This thing is FAST. Instantaneous lock on. Used it at a boxing match over the weekend and shot it like as if I was using my trusted 50mm 1.4 (Nikon). This lens is SOLID. Impeccably built. At half the price of the Nikon 35mm/1.4 it really is a no brainer. I also got it with a Heliopan UV filter (the expensive one) You cannot tell the difference in sharpness between f1.4 and f4.0. It is that good! Chromatic aberration? What is that. It is a thing of the past. Fairly close focusing too. I preordered from Bnh early. I got No.012. I am very confident knowing that Sigma made sure that they got the first batch of lenses right for Nikon. It is obvious that the quality control issues maybe a thing of the past for Sigma. Viva La Sigma!!!

    This is the second copied yet it delivered the same result as focus shift, inconsistency in focus.

    The lens seems to "auto" focus on its own. I spent more than 300 shots with this lens combined with several adjustments from Sigma USB Dock to get to +9/+9/+10/+10. With the above adjustment, the lens produced tack sharp image if it didn't shift focus on its own. Unfortunately, there was only 20% of the chance that it would focus on the focus point.

    My works can't accept this kind of inconsistency. It may work perfectly on other cameras but definitely not on Nikon D810.

    I love Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 (APS-C) while hate Sigma 35mm f1.4 at the same level.

    Attached is couple images with 100% crop to show the inconsistency. Both shot at f1.4, 1/80 and focus at the right eye of the girl. One image, it focused at the leather chair (front focus.) I shot one after that and it focused on the girl t-shirt (back focus)

    Sadly, I probably will not touch Sigma lenses until they prove to be better in QC.

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

    Fast, inexpensive (in comparison), SHARP, incredible 35mm lens!The only downside is the build quality, but let's be honest.. as a serious photographer I could not care less about build quality. I care about what a Lens can provide me with, and this lens is absolutely pure quality.I love how close you can get to a subject as well. The auto-focus is pretty quick and accurate as well on a D810Again, compare the price with some Zeiss, Nikon, or Canon lenses, and you will soon find out that this is the better option!

      This lens is used for weddings, where I use to have a Nikon 35mm f2.0D.

      There is a huge diference betwen this and the Nikon, this is incredible sharp, excelent focus speed.

      You will not be disapointed with this sigma.

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

        I absolutely love this lens. Shooting with it I have the confidence that my images can be 'Art' as the name implies. As others have mentioned, it is the sharpest 35mm lens on the market, even straight from f/1.4. Build quality is very solid, and it's not a lightweight lens. I've not had any problems with the AF, which has always been fast, accurate, and silent. I wanted to mention a few things I've noticed since using it for awhile now that don't get mentioned in every review. First, it has a very flat plane of focus. Meaning if you plan to use it for landscapes, you really need to stop way down, and find the proper hyperlocal distance to make sure everything is sharp from front to back of the image. When you do, the results are magic, corner to corner.Second, others have sometimes said the bokeh (out of focus blur) on this lens isn't that great. 35mm (and other wide-angle lenses) aren't particularly known for great bokeh anyway, but what I've found with the Sigma is that if you have a lot of busy stuff going on in the foreground or background, the bokeh will be a little nervous. If you keep the out of focus details to a minimum, you'll get a very nice creamy blur. I can't really knock the lens for this, as it's pretty common, and can be worked around.I haven't shot with Nikon's 35mm f/1.4, but I have with the newer 35mm f1.8G, and it too is a nice lens; very good at landscapes and lighter weight, but not quite as sharp as this Sigma. I wish it were weather-sealed but for the price I can't really complain. It's an excellent complement to the Nikon 85mm f1.8. I just wish Sigma would hurry up and make an equally sharp 24mm f/1.4!

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

          Wonderful lense, the value is great. The focal length lends it a flexible walking around lense aspect to it. In studio I sometimes forgot that I was not using a longer focal length since that was my usual scenario and forgot to move closer.
          The Bokeh is not very strong and does not produce those pearly oval shaped Bokeh artifacts that some people seem to "Oooh!" and "Aaahh!" over but it produces very sharp images in all kinds of light. I've been shooting in various conditions including studio, and ambient light with it so far since it arrived from BH about 2 weeks ago. It's proven to be a very good lense overall, it does have a few AF problems at some aperture settings in poor light but I don't consider that to be a serious problem. I haven't needed to calibrate it yet, at 200 percent crop the details seem crisp enough for my own uses. It hit the mark more consistently than my non-premium 50mm 1.4 Nikkor (with the fake gold banding on it).
          I've had the aperture up to f14 with no signs of diffraction so far.

          I have only used the lens a few times so far, but I am quite impressed with it. I shoot mainly landscapes and do some wildlife photography. So far, I find the lens to be very sharp, fast autofocus, and built extremely well. My only wish is that the lens had a rubber gasket on the mount to seal it better, but I don't think that will be too big of a deal, since I don't shoot in wet, damp conditions very often, or in windy dusty conditions either. Bokeh is not quite as good as the Nikon 35 1.4G lens, but is okay.

I've never used a lens this sharp. Even wide open it is great. If you're on the fence about it like I was, go ahead and jump off. It's worth it.

                The lens seems to "auto" focus on its own. I spent more than 300 shots with this lens combined with several adjustments from Sigma USB Dock to get to +9/+9/+10/+10. With the above adjustment, the lens produced tack sharp image if it didn't shift focus on its own. Unfortunately, there was only 20% of the chance that it would focus on the focus point.

                My works can't accept this kind of inconsistency. It may work perfectly on other cameras but definitely not on Nikon D810.

                I love Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 (APS-C) while hate Sigma 35mm f1.4 at the same level.

                Attached is couple images with 100% crop to show the inconsistency. Both shot at f1.4, 1/80 and focus at the right eye of the girl. One image, it focused at the leather chair (front focus.) I shot one after that and it focused on the girl t-shirt (back focus)

                Sadly, I probably will not touch Sigma lenses until they prove to be better in QC.

                    I really wanted to love this lens and keep it forever. I have rented it numerous times and it was amazing, so I decided to buy it from B&H. Used the first copy I got for a couple of sessions, which I should I have tested out before then, but oh well! Maybe 1 out of 6 shots was sharp, if that!! contacted B&H and they were awesome about exchaging it for another copy. Received my other copy, and same thing. Most shots would be out of focus, but the one that was sharp was SUPER sharp. I had to send it back, couldn't have that inconsitency with my focus...especially for weddings. Thanks for being awesome about my exchange and my return, B&H!! I'll definitely be back for more! :)

                    This lens is beautifully crafted, and the image quality and AF performance is stellar. For me, this is an excellent focal length for FX or DX and you can shoot at any f-stop that suits your needs and the image will be nicely rendered and sharp. If this lens is just too large and heavy for your needs, and you don't mind a cheaper build quality, the Nikon 35mm f1.8 FX lens is very close in image quality and does a fine job. This Sigma is just a little better in all of the technical aspects and it is just a joy to shoot with.

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

                    After a lot of agonizing and reading a zillion reviews for different 35mm 1.4 lenses I finally decided that id take the gamble and get the sigma art 35mm 1.4. I was blown away by the performance... did I say I was blown away by the performance of this lens!!... This is one truly spectacular piece of glass and any website who have posted reviews of this lens and has raved about the glory that is .. in short .. is right.
                    The lens is heavy and I did find myself getting tired of holding my d800e with the sigma and found myself relaxing my wrists. I also tried to find focus issues (like some had insisted that it was present) .. sad part- I didn't find any. The lens was better with focusing than some Nikon lenses I have. If you want a 35mm and think f/1.8 is enough, this lens takes it to a whole another level. The bokeh is superb and sharpness is crisp..
                    I think this is going to be one very used lens... and it sure lives to all the hype its created.

                        This is a great lens. I am going to use it as an alternative to my Nikon 24-70 2.8. I plan on using this as a walk around lens for use inside and around the city. I selected this lens not only because of the price, but for the quality of pictures it can produce. I am very happy. So happy, I decided to purchase another Sigma lens. This is something I never thought I would do years ago.
