Sigma 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

An optically advanced wide-angle prime, the Nikon F 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens from Sigma mixes a comfortable focal length with an especially fast design. The bright f/1.4 maximum aperture helps to achieve shallow depth of field and selective focus effects, and also suits working in difficult lighting conditions. The optical layout incorporates both low dispersion and aspherical elements, which help to improve sharpness and clarity by controlling both spherical and chromatic aberrations. A floating elements system is also used to maintain performance throughout the focusing range. A Super Multi-Layer Coating is also featured, and helps to minimize flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.

Complementing the imaging capabilities, the lens sports a Hyper Sonic Motor to produce quick, smooth, and quiet autofocus performance with full-time manual focus override. The physical design features a brass bayonet mount, which offers rigidity and mounting precision along with a seal to guard against dust and moisture. Additionally, a rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

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 prime is designed for FX-format Nikon F-mount cameras, however is also suitable for DX models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.
Impressively bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is well-suited for working in low-light conditions and also provides greater control over the focus position when using shallow depth of field techniques.
One F Low Dispersion (FLD) element and four Special Low Dispersion (SLD) elements are featured in the optical design, and help to reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for improved clarity and color accuracy.
Two aspherical elements are used to help limit distortion and spherical aberrations and also contributes to greater overall sharpness and accurate rendering.
Floating elements system helps to realize consistent optical performance throughout the focusing range, from 11.8" to infinity.
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.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.
The integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.
The bayonet mount is constructed from brass for ensured accuracy and durability. Additionally, rubber sealing is incorporated in the mount design to render it dust- and splash-resistant.
This lens is compatible with the optional Sigma USB Dock for fine-tuning different lens characteristics and updating its firmware.

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 214.
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.
