Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Overview

An inherently flexible focal length, the Leica L-mount 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens from Sigma is a sleek wide-angle prime pairing a bright design with a portable form factor.

In regard to handling and focus, this lens features a stepping motor for quick and quiet AF performance that suits both photo and video applications. As an I Series lens, too, this lens features a manual aperture ring and all-metal barrel constriction for enhanced tactility. Additionally, there is a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh quality and the lens housing is also weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

As part of the Contemporary line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve a balance between convenience and performance, and meshes a compact, lightweight build and versatile handling with notable optical attributes.
I Series lens emphasizes a sleek and stylish physical design that is built to the same operational standards of Sigma's Cine lenses, including a mechanical aperture ring, knurled metal components, and various switches and tactile controls for intuitive operation.

Bright f/2 maximum aperture strikes and ideal balance between speed and size and manages to maintain a compact physical profile while also offering low-light performance and depth of field control.
One Special Low Dispersion (SLD) element markedly reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Three aspherical elements help to control distortion and spherical aberrations for a high degree of sharpness and accurate rendering.
A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.
Integrated stepping motor realizes smooth and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an internal focusing design to promote greater responsiveness.
Manual aperture ring includes an 'A' position for camera-based aperture selection.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Brass bayonet affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity and rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount's design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.

Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Reviews

Great overall lens

By Etan
Rated 5 out of 5

Sharp enough for me, great walk around lens, the build quality is great, the autofocus is good enough (although not quite as fast as some of the sony native primes, but satisfactory for me), and I absolutely ADORE the manual aperture dial... I shoot 99% in aperture priority mode and I hate looking at the back LCD to keep checking what aperture setting I'm via the camera wheel. I wish more lenses did this!

Very Sharp - good color on Leica SL2-s

After several weeks of use, the lens has produced very sharp images when using auto focus. The color rendered is pleasing and not overly contrasty. Autofocus is quiet when taking photos. I have not used it for video so I cannot comment on that. Very satisfied with the lens.

Great lens, very happy

Have both SONY 35mm f1.8 and this sigma f1.8. The build quality of sigma is top notch. It still feels well balanced on SONY a73 even with the metal lens hood. It is my favorite walk around lens now. It also has better color rendering, much less Chromatic aberration than the SONY version. Sharpness wise, I could not tell the difference between these two.

The 35mm Sigma f2 DG DN lens is Stellar!

To start this lens has an aperture ring and an MF/AF switch. This is most important to me. It focuses very fast and accurately. A pleasure. The build quality is lovely and feels like a much more expensive lens than it is. On my Sony A7C, also from B&H, who else anyway, it's a joy to use. Nice color rendition, smooth bokeh, and very fast focusing. I don't see any major or minor distortions or aberrations. I wanted this lens because my Leica lenses are manual only and I and I wanted to let the camera and me work together. I am very happy with this lens and B&H. Go for it... you'll be happy.

Like a tank

I love the first impressions. It feels really split and metal built. Paired with the Panasonic S1 it gives good video and image quality. At F2 it delivers a nice bokeh and for the price it's an excellent purchase. Thanks

Low Light Beast

This is a beast for low light scenarios. Paired with the Panasonic S5 it gives good video. It reminds me of the MFT Leica 15mm f1.7. Great construction...well, I'm sure you'll find a thorough review on some platform.

Solid little tank of a lens!

Nice compact size. Fast focus. All metal construction (even the hood).

Overall a Good Lens

By Gary

I don't think this lens is a 5 lens. Image quality is pretty good from f2 until f4. Above f4 this lens sharpens up nicely. By f11 sharpness is superb. I shot this lens recently on my SL2 and was impressed by the stopped-down sharpness. Build quality is definitely 5. The metal lens hood secures very well, surrounding a lens filter rather than on to a lens filter (I hope this makes sense). Aperture selection is firm and click into place nicely. I have not shot manual so I won't comment on manual focusing. Finally, mounted on my SL2 this lens was recognized. Presumably any in-camera image adjustments were made. The one time I've used this lens thus far I shot 50-60 shots, tossed them all out except one of the wife. Hence at this time no shots to contribute to this review.
