An effective take on a popular focal length, the Sony E-mount AF 35mm f/1.8 FE from Samyang is a wide-angle prime mixing a lightweight and portable design with a bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. The optical design incorporates a two extra-low dispersion elements and a pair of aspherical elements, which help to suppress both chromatic and spherical aberrations for improved sharpness, color accuracy, and clarity. An Ultra Multi-Coating has also been applied to reduce flare and ghosting in order to achieve higher contrast when working in strong lighting conditions. The lens's linear STM autofocus motor works in conjunction with Sony cameras' AF systems for quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance, and manual focus override is also available for more refined control. Additionally, a Custom Switch enables making intuitive adjustments of a variety of camera and exposure settings by rotating the lens's focusing ring.

Hello, how do I remove the lens hood when I first take the lens out of the box?
The lens hood is connected to the outside front of the lens via a bayonet mount. To remove the reverse-mounted lens hood, you may hold the lens from the back near the lens mount with one hand, then grasp the lens hood using your other hand and rotate the lens hood counter-clockwise. To attach the lens hood, you can align the white dot on the back of the lens hood with the white dot on the front of the lens, then rotate the lens hood clockwise until the lens hood clicks into place.

This or the Sigma 35mm 1.4 ? (for Video)
Both this lens and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art lens would be great for video, as they both offer quiet/fast autofocus along with a large aperture for a shallower depth of field. As far as which is better, it would really come down to the budget of the individual.
