Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E
Key Features
  • E-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2 to f/22
  • One SLD Element
  • Three Aspherical Elements
An inherently flexible focal length, the Sony E-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. The standard wide field of view is useful for a broad array of subject types, including landscape, street, and reportage shooting, and the f/2 maximum aperture excels in challenging lighting and enables greater control over depth of field. In terms of the optical design, three aspherical elements and one SLD element are used to minimize a variety of aberrations and distortion for sharp and accurate rendering. Also, a Super Multi-Layer Coating helps to control ghosting and flare for improved color fidelity and contrast.

Can autofocus on this lens be turned on and off from the camera body? Thanks.
Asked by: Spencer
If the camera you own has the ability to turn the autofocus feature on and off via the camera's menu, then yes, it can be done from either the camera body via the menu or via the AF/MF switch on the lens. When you disable the autofocus either via the camera's menu or directly on the lens, you would enable the fine focus ring function for manual focus usage needs.

Hello: what advantages and disadvantages of this lens, compared to the Sony FE 50mm f / 2.8 Macro Lens ?, thanks in advance
Asked by: Benito
While we have not had a chance to try this lens out, on paper the differences would be the focal length (35mm versus 50mm), the wider aperture (f/2 versus f/2.8), minimum focusing distance (35mm has 10" versus 50mm's 6"), autofocus speed (macro lenses are typically slower).

I see from the photos that the aperture rings move in 1/3 stops. Will it give the same effect as de-clicked aperture of a cine lens? Or will the jumps be noticeable? Thanks
Asked by: Yaron
From our tests in the store using the Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN C, the effect is not quite similar to a de-clicked aperture ring. Firstly, there is an audible click when rotating the physical aperture ring. Secondly, there is a split-second latency even in Aperture Priority where the exposure adjusts and the shutter speed/ISO raises in order to compensate for the change. We had a much more seamless effect when the lens is set to "A" and we adjusted the aperture via the dials as we did not hear the click nor did we see any visible exposure change.

Which lens is better for every day use and ...

Which lens is better for every day use and different genres (including portraits), this one or 45 2.8?
Asked by: Ksenia
I apologize in advance for the vague answer, but "better" will very much depend on the kind of photographs you make and the kind of compositions you enjoy. Typically, 35mm/40mm are seen as more "traditional" for street photography, but the 45mm might offer you tighter, slightly more intimate perspectives during everyday shooting. Truthfully, there isn't a significant difference between them, and you should be able to enjoy making photographs with either! With regards to portraiture, the longer focal length 45 is typically better due to lesser distortion, but depending on your type of portraiture (environmental portraits versus headshot/corporate portraiture), this will also vary the choice of lens.

There's a ring to select aperture on this lens. However, is it still possible to dial the aperture from the aperture wheel on the SL rather than through the aperture ring on the lens?
Asked by: Christian
Yes there is a way. Turn the aperture ring to "A" (like it shows in the photo) and you'll have control through the camera instead of the lens.
