Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art Overview

Created for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras, this Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art Lens features Sigma's first prime lens design with a f/1.2 maximum aperture. Delivering excellent image quality while optimizing size, as well as weight, the lens' fast f/1.2 aperture helps to achieve shallow depth of field as well as extremely selective focus effects and is also suited for working in very difficult lighting conditions. Three low dispersion glass elements and three aspherical elements, including a double-sided element, effectively control spherical aberrations and distortion for increased sharpness and accurate rendering.

Complementing its imaging capabilities, the lens includes a large Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. While the aperture ring's de-click switch can prevent unwanted noise from being recorded while capturing video with sound, the built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button can be assigned additional functions to widen the range of operations available on the lens. Additionally, a rounded 11-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.
Created for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras, this lens features Sigma's first f/1.2 maximum aperture, prime lens design to deliver excellent image quality while optimizing size, as well as weight. It is also suitable for APS-C models where it provides a 53mm equivalent focal length.
Constant f/1.2 maximum aperture is particularly well-suited for working in available light conditions and provides extreme control over depth of field.

I absolutely love the f1.2! It's one of the few wide angle lenses you can get amazing bokeh!

I was really excited until I received a used lens at the new price. When you spend money for the fresh out of the box experience and someone else already put their fingerprints all over and it was shoved back in the box. This was a big let down and, I can not even pretend to be excited. Great product. Really screwed this up.

35mm best in class?

Who doesn't want a 35mm lens with a f stop of 1.2? This lens delivers exactly that. But with great power comes great responsibility. Responsibility in this case being weight and a slightly noisy autofocus. So if you have a strong set of arms and don't record audio right next to your lens I would say this is the lens for you.

I use this lens professionally and for my own personal photography. I almost didn’t purchase it due to its size but the positives outweigh the negatives. It is a beautiful sharp lens, very fast of course, low coma issues compared to Sony/Zeiss I almost purchased for my Sony full frame camera. The biggest bonus is extremely close focusing and beautiful bokeh. I am getting used to the size when I see the resulting photos.

Great Sharp Lens

I'm wondering if the AF is usable for video. I tried the HSM 1.4 recently and wasn't happy with how loud the motor was. It's heard the DG DN lenses were better, but are they good enough not to come through on camera mounted shotgun mic tracks?
Asked by: Kenton
The DG DN lenses were designed with Mirrorless and Video in mind. I tested both this lens and the Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG DN on a Leica SL2S. The lenses aren't making any noise even in the most dramatic focus pulls. You should be fine with either lens for video, although the AF performance varies per camera.

I use an S1 and a G9 for sports shooting. From the reviews posted here on this site, it doesn't seem like this lens will hold up in CAF at all. Anyone wanna' go in-depth about this? I can't find a review that talks about this issue seriously. Thanks in advance!
Asked by: Adam
Can't go in depth based on what a review says. It can be a defective lens, a defective camera, a flaw in the both new products. For sure the manufacturers are looking to reviews and checking for problems and solutions.
