Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG DN Art Overview

A classic wide angle lens updated for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless systems, the 35mm f/1.4 DG DN from Sigma is an Art-series prime characterized by its advanced and updated optical design, sleek profile, and bright design. The f/1.4 maximum aperture enables working in low-light conditions and also provides increased control over depth of field for achieving shallow depth of field effects. The optical layout incorporates two SLD Special-Low Dispersion, one ELD Extra-Low Dispersion, and one FLD Low Dispersion elements. It also incorporates two aspherical elements and high refractive index elements to achieve a notable degree of clarity and sharpness with well-controlled distortion and aberrations. Also, a Super Multi-Layer Coating enhances image quality by suppressing lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color fidelity in strong lighting conditions.

Balancing the optics is a refined exterior design, which features a physical aperture ring, which can be de-clicked or locked, along with a dedicated focus mode switch and AFL button for intuitive and tactile control. For autofocus, a stepping motor is used that maintains a lightweight and compact design while promoting fast and near silent focusing performance for both stills and video applications. Additionally, the lens features an 11-blade rounded diaphragm for smooth bokeh quality and the lens housing is also weather-sealed to suit working in inclement conditions.

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.
Wide-angle lens is designed for full-frame Leica L-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is particularly well-suited for working in available light conditions and provides extensive control over depth of field for isolating subject matter with selective focus.
Lens Construction: 15 elements in 11 groups, including one FLD low-dispersion element, one ELD extra-low dispersion element, two SLD special-low dispersion elements, and two aspherical elements.
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. Resistance coating allows oil and water to be easily wiped from the front lens surface and prevents oil and fat from sticking for easy cleaning.
Integrated stepping motor realizes quick and quiet internal autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. Face and eye detection supported in feature enabled cameras.
Manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications. Additionally, a dedicated aperture ring lock switch can also be employed to prevent accidental shifting of the aperture setting.
Built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button which can be assigned additional functions widens the range of operations available on the lens.
Rounded eleven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
Weather-resistant construction with a brass bayonet that affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.

Big lens

Obviously, I'm not an optics designer, but it does seem to be large for what it is. It's fantastic, sharp, quiet, smooth, and well made. It does have large focus breathing when shooting pictures, but for video focus, it doesn't show up on my S5.

When I received my lens it came with two minor scratches on the front of the lens. I have kept the lens and continued to shoot with it but it's just disappointing when you buy something new and it doesn't come perfectly as you would imagine.

I'm curious about the AF noise for video. I used the HSM version recently and will have to add some sound design over the clicking noise of the motor. Wondering if the DN version is better? Usable? I've heard conflicting reviews.
Asked by: Kenton
The DG DN lenses were designed with Mirrorless and Video in mind. I tested both this lens and the Sigma 35mm 1.2 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.

Where is the infinity focus on this lens? What's the max before everything is in focus?
Asked by: Shaun
The focusing ring on this lens does not have any distance marking. There is no specific marking on the lens for this. The more one stops down the more appears in focus. But like most lenses, there isn't a point when absolutely everything is in focus.
