Sigma 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Nikon 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 Nikon DSLR Cameras is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 213.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from the Most Simple Word is Great I had read about this lens in several places and saw it got high accolades from so many I began to give it consideration. I saw the photos taken with it and decided to give it a try. While certainly not the smallest or lightest lens in this focal length I've seen it sure has been the sharpest. The contrast is superb and the bokeh with the lens wide open, even down to f/2.8 is simply marvelous. The build quality is great and after trying it at differnt apertures from f/1.4 to f/5.6 I knew I had snagged a winner. I can't say enough good about this lens; however, it's the first non-Nikon lens I've bought in many years there have been no regrets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Hype is true...Totally Awesome!! Very serious pixel peeper here. I shoot with a Nikon D800E and this is the sharpest lens I have ever had on my camera. Focus at F1.4 is very critical and I had to dial the camera micro focus in a bit, but now it's right on. This lens is awesome on a high pixel camera but probably not a good choice for the casual consumer. Depth of field is extreemly narrow when you shoot wide open, so very easy to miss focus. And on a high pixel camera there is no middle ground, it's either sharp or its out of focus. Serious pixel peepers this is the magic lens for you to enjoy, it opens new worlds to explore, but it can be a challenge as well!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One Word: Unbelievable I bought this lens just last week after much consideration and research on 35mm options for my D800. This past weekend, on a last-minute shoot, I took this lens as a possibility. I ended up shooting with it *all weekend. It's really a superb lens. It's AF is accurate (from my estimation). I've found excellent results in ver low light conditions. It's bokeh is far better than the reviews I've read. And it's one of the sharpest lenses I've shot with at 35mm. I could not be happier with this addition to my bag. And I'm already planning on replacing my Nikon 35mm/1.4 with it's Sigma Art counterpart. Might even get the 24 while I'm at it. Honestly, this lens is unbelievable.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice with a few shortcomings Used with flower photography and casual portrait photography so far. Very sharp even at 1.4. Using it on D800 so my occasional missed focus blame could be either lens or camera. I have not tested yet on chart. Focus is quiet but somtimes a little erratic. Nice contrast with perhaps a little harsh bokeh, but I am not a bokeh freak so it does not bother me. Nice color rendition on flowers, which can be tricky and nice sharpness. Nice narrow DOF at 1.4 or 1.6 for a somewhat wide angle. This can be great for landscape shots. A little heavy, but not too large and very solid. All in all a nice lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So sharp you could cut youself Bought this lens for indoor portrait work with a Nikon D750. The lens is a perfect fit (size/weight) on the D750. My primary kit is an Olympus E-M1 with various micro four thirds lenses. I thought that this might be too big compared to what I've become used to, but it wasn't in the least. (I used to shoot with the D810 and D4s with big and heavy Nikon glass.) The Sigma is every bit as good (build quality, smooth operation, and image quality) as any Nikon or Canon pro lens I've ever used (and I've owned a lot of them from ultra wide to 600mm 4.0). Buy and use it without fear. You won't regret it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Significantly sharper wide open than Nik This lens is sharper hands down then the Nikkor 35 f/1.4G at larger apertures. By f/5.6 or so they become more or less equivalent. If you need a sharp low-light lens, this is it. This lens has received lots of rave reviews and they are deserved. Chromatic aberration is also better controlled than on the Nikkor as are linear distortions at any aperture. The only area where this lens laggs the nikon equivalent is in corner light fall-off. The difference is gone at f/5.6 and actually is better on the Sigma at f/8 and smaller apertures. Overall the best lens Sigma has ever made.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for candids In fifty years of owning Nikon equipment, from the infamous Nikkorex to the D800, this is the first non-Nikon lens I have owned. I have been using it primarily for indoor and outdoor candid shots. Focusing under the conditions I've used it with has been fast and accurate. I did check for focus accuracy with a chart before using and it didn't exhibit any back or front focus issues. The construction appears to be good; it doesn't seem to mate quite as smoothly as my Nikon lenses, not that there are any problems with the final fit. This lens along with my Nikon 50 mm f/1.4 combined with the high ISO capability of the D800 really allow for so many opportunities for candid natural light photography

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, Fast and Contrasty I recently got the Nikon D800 and wanted a wide/mid focal length lens capable of meeting the demands of this camera. I debated whether to get a fast prime or a zoom. After considerable research, I opted for the Sigma 35 1.4. This lens is well built, sharp even at 1.4, but it really shines at f/4 to 5.6. The HSM achieves focus quickly with no noticeable searching. Contrast is also very good. I found the focus was dead-on on the D800. No focus tuning was needed. I've only had the lens for a few weeks and I'm still experimenting with its abilities. So far, I'd say this is a very capable prime lens that lives up to its hype.
