Sigma 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras from Sigma is the first entry into Sigma's Art series of professional lenses, with an emphasis on artistic expression and the creative potential of the lens. With a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, floating inner focusing system, and Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) you'll have quick and accurate control over the artistic effects achieved by the lens' high quality elements.

For wide angle photography, this 35mm lens and its circular 9-bladed f/1.4 aperture ensure excellent brightness and blurred background (bokeh) effects. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

The lens' Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) and floating inner focusing system ensure that you experience quick, quiet and precise autofocusing whenever you need it. Adjust focus using either autofocus (AF), or full-time manual focus, without having to switch camera modes or change settings - just flick the switch from AF to MF.

For greater build quality and strength, all metallic parts and the new Thermally Stable Composite compound material (TSC), are housed internally. Its brass made bayonet mount has both high accuracy and durability, and a special treatment is applied to its surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term daily use.

Aperture Range: f/1.4-16
With a bright maximum aperture of f/1.4 this lens allows you to capture images with beautiful defocused background bokeh effects in darker conditions - using faster shutter speeds and lower ISO sensitivities.
Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM)
This lens' motor is driven by ultrasonic waves to provide quiet, high speed autofocus. This Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotating the focus ring.
Floating Internal Focus System
For stable focusing, this lens moves its inner lens groups without changing the lens length. It also compensates for astigmatic aberration and provides extremely high optical performance for close-up photos.
Minimum Focusing Distance: 11.8"
This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 11.8" so you can capture wide-angle close-ups from nearly a foot away.
Anti-Flare Super Multi-Layer Coating
This lens' coatings reduce lens flare, internal reflections and light scattering that can occur between the surfaces of its glass elements.
USB Dock & SIGMA Optimization Pro Software
Because of its redesigned series of lenses, Sigma developed proprietary software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) and an optional USB docking system that allows you to update the lens' firmware and adjust its parameters such as focus. The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A1 Lens is compatible with the USB Dock.
Special & "F" Low Dispersion Elements
This lens incorporates "F" Low Dispersion (FLD) glass elements, which have performance equal to that of fluorite, and Special Low Dispersion (SLD) glass elements. By optimizing the power alignment of the lens, chromatic aberration has been corrected, achieving high image quality through the entire focusing range.
DG Lens for Digital & 35mm Film SLRs
This is a large-aperture lens with wide angles and a short minimum focusing distance. Because of its great peripheral illumination, or lack of vignetting, it is an ideal lens for DSLR Cameras and traditional 35mm SLRs alike.
Sigma's Artistic A-Series Lens
Sigma has organized all of its interchangeable lenses into three product lines: Contemporary, Art and Sports. The Art line delivers high-level artistic quality with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power. The SIGMA 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM is the first lens from the Art line. Developed with an emphasis on artistic touch, Sigma's Art line lenses are designed to meet the expectations of users who value a creative, dramatic outcome above compactness and multifunction.
Front Filter Thread Diameter: 67mm
The 67mm front filter thread is fixed, allowing rotating polarizing filters to be used with the lens.
9x Circular Aperture Blades
With nine circular blades, the lens' diaphragm delivers very pleasant, soft bokeh background effects.
Brass Bayonet Mount
This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce it is applied to the surface, giving it greater strength and making it highly durable for long-term use.
Ease Of Use
For better usability, the designs of the lens cap and AF/MF switch have been improved, as well as the rubberized lens hood attachment. In order to ensure accuracy and precision, all metallic parts and the new Thermally Stable Composite material are housed internally.
Quality Control & Sigma's MTF "A1" Measuring System
Sigma used to measure lens performance with the standard MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system, using conventional sensors. However, they have since developed a proprietary MTF measuring system - dubbed "A1" - using 46MP resolution Foveon direct image sensors. Previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of their quality control inspections.

    Sigma 35mm f/1.4 reviews

    35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon DSLR Cameras is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 402.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the Canon 35L I have owned many Sigma lenses that I never seem to keep them because they are always lacking in one way or another. Not this lens its actually better than the Canon 35L it competes with and it cost less as a bonus. I am excited because if this is the quality that the NEW Sigma will produce I will be buying more of their products. Build quality is tops too, only wish it had weather sealing but for the price I can over look this its not a deal breaker. I also got the Sigma dock so I can do firmware updates/adjust the lens to my liking. This is something no other lens manufacture currently has and it's a BIG Plus!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great 35 mm prime lens by Sigma. Bought this lens made by Sigma based on other reviews and positive experience with Sigma lenses (50 mm EX f/1.4 and 70 mm EX f/2.8 macro lens). Lucky enough to purchase it here on B&H while in stock and partnered with their recommended 67 mm circular polarizer filter made by Hoya. I can say that this lens is tack sharp and has quick auto focusing. Great substitute for the Canon 35 mm 1.4 L for those who want more bang for their money. And Sigma's unbeatable 4 year warranty is another plus. Really solid and well balanced lens (with a Canon 5D II) with tight tolerance that feels and looks great. I can see many wedding photographers using this lens soon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sigma TOTALLY surprised me! Ok, I will admit it. I only use L series lenses on my Canon. After doing a tremendous amount of research on Canon's version, I continuously saw praises for Sigma's 35. Huh? What? Sigma? Really? Was I seeing things correctly? Photographers were stating it was just as good, if not better. Loving the price, I decided to give it a try and I could not be happier. It is so incredibly fast and sharp. Like super sharp. The bokeh is beyond words when used at 1.4. It is so amazing, my L series lenses are barely getting used. So the moral of my story, if you are considering a 35mm, don't be a lens brand snob like I almost was. Sigma's Art Series has totally won me over!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Canon lens I recently switched from Nikon to Canon and decided to purchase this lens as my first Canon lens. I was a little worried since this is my first Pro lens purchase but now after using it for a few weeks, I have no regrets. The bokeh is smooth and buttery. Performance in low light is stunning. Focus is super quiet, precise, and fast. Even the heftiness of the lens, which I was a bit worried about, isn't too bad and I find I actually enjoy the slight heftiness that the lens has. Although I might be biased since this is my first pro lens purchase, I would say this is definitely worth the investment and will completely up your photography game.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, fast, significant I used Canon's 35 f/1.4 for 2 years before selling it for the sigma version. Physically, the lens feels very significant. The body and focus ring are solid and aesthetically magical to the eye. The included lens hood is the same texture as the lens so it looks permanently attached, instead of the plastic vs metal that Canon uses. Focusing is just as fast as the Canon version and my Sigma copy is sharper than my Canon copy. I shoot mainly weddings so I use this lens in both good light and bad light. Focus in the dark is not a problem, especially on the 5dmk3. Colors are a little different, but not a deal breaker since it's adjustable in post. Overall, a gorgeous lens that's fast, sharp, and cheap!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from SIMPLE AMZING I just love this lens on my 5Dmk3, no AF issues. Although I don't use it for video work. But I'm sure I could. love the sharpness even wide open at f1.4 Great. just watch the depth of field at five feet or closer it is very shallow. i couldn't see any real or added distortion when using for 3/4 or full body portraiture. color output is nice clean and crisp. Build is through the roof. Matching Canon L. AF is as fast as Canon L, just a tad bit slower in low light. but not noticable. If you are using for stills sell what you need too to obtain this lens, you will not regret it. but video I don't have sufficient experince to speak of. I love this lens so much, I'm getting ready to sell two of my Canon L for the new 120-300 f2.8.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for Photo/Journalism I just purchased this beauty for newspaper work and some photo shoots. I used it to shoot a pancake breakfast yesterday and it was fast and sharp with just enough bokeh to make it interesting. I also used it for a Christmas night seen in our downtown area and it pulled in this wonderful glowing sky on my Canon 5D that we put it on the front page. I am guessing it will take time to use such a powerful piece of glass because I was shooting a 24 mm, 2.8 on my Canon 20D and that was the work horse. I'm hoping that I won't need a flash much with this. The lens body is solid but the hood and lens cover seem a little flimsy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it but returned it for the Canon 35mm 1.4L ii As a professional wedding photographer, I wanted to love this lens. And for the price, they've done a great job with it. However, after shooting 3 sessions with it, I returned it and bought the Canon 35mm 1.4L ii. The purple fringing with the Sigma was more than I could put up with, and it had difficultly focusing in low-ish light that the Canon handles just fine. The Canon is also much sharper. If you're just starting out or don't think you'd use it often, I think it's a great choice. But I'll most likely be spending 90% of a wedding day with this on one of my camera bodies. I've been shooting with the Canon now for a couple of weeks, and the price difference was worth it to me!
