Sigma 35mm f/1.4 overview

  • 1Description

An optically advanced wide-angle prime, the Sony A 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 full-frame-format Sony A-mount cameras, however is also suitable for APS-C 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 Sony A is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome lens! I am currently shooting with Sony A33 but looking to upgrade to A99 that is when this lense will shine the most! Compare to sony 35mm 1.8 SAM dt lens it is a night and day difference. Sigma 1: focus super fast just snaps right on. 2: silent when focusing would be perfect of video. I was so use to the sony making noise knowing it was focusing. 3: build quality is sold,not that heavy but solid. It is balanced really well even with my a33 that now looks small. 4: quality of shots is perfect, razor sharp Would I buy this lens again? yes. Does it want to make me buy the a99 yes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable image quality! I needed a high quality landscape lens and after doing adequate research decided on the Sigma 35mm Art lens. I am so happy with this lens! The image quality is incredible! It is everything it was advertised as being and more. I recently went to several canyon land parks in the American southwest and was astonished when I first saw the images after returning home and began the editing process. I highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you're looking for detail, WOW! I've shot film for many years, but recently I moved to the world of digital photography. Most of my work has been in landscapes and architectural detail where every aspect of a photo is put under the microscope. I will be honest. I was a little apprehensive spending this much for a Sigma lens, however, after much review (and I do suggest that you look at as much information as possible), I decided to purchase this lens. The first thing I noticed was the build quality, which is outstanding. All of the parts work smoothly and the focus speed is quick and quite. At 1.4, the foreground and background are blown out beautifully. Low light conditions are not an issue. Though there's no IS, I've dropped the shutter speed to as low as 1/20 without any noticeable blur. Detail is without doubt its strongest feature. Parts that you see with your eye are accurately reproduced. Without a doubt, I would highly recommend this lens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a FANTASTIC lens for video! This lens is remarkable. I have a Sony a99, and I'm just an amateur that simply takes videos of his family (but I color grade the heck out of them in Resolve pretty well!), but I have to tell you that this lens produces BEAUTIFUL video. I have the Zeiss 85mm f/1.4 and the Zeiss 50mm f/1.4, and this lens is AT LEAST as good as the 50mm, if not better. That's not apples to apples, but I'm just saying.I know no one reading this is going to want to watch my family videos --that is quite understandable! BUT, I did this one on Saturday using the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 almost exclusively (except for one minute, and I explain that in the youtube description)---------------- you weed through the bouncy house scenes and see the corn feeder bucket, the horse feeding, and some others, you can see that there are some remarkable shots were I have to give credit to the lens! Just a reminder... my poor focusing and taking shots where I go from shade to bright sun causing the skin to be blown out is NOT the fault of this lens. I was using a 1.2 ND filter, by the way --and most of this video is either f/1.4 to f/1.6 or so.It's stunningly clear, and the blacks just seem to be magic (sort of reminds me of how Nikon lenses produce a lot of great blacks). I don't know how to describe it other than it really finds blacks and brings them out of the woodwork.For me, being that I'm filming a couple of kids running around like screaming maniacs, having a great 35mm on a full frame camera is extremely important! I need to have room --and plus, I like the full body shots (there are a lot of them with my wife and the stroller).So, because I'm still far when I get those full body shots (well, not too far because of the 35mm), that means that there is much less bokeh and shallow depth of field than there would be if I were getting up close shots, but there is still a decent amount. I have no complaints here.Anyway, if you want to see the lens in action, take a look. It will be my go to lens for things like this from now on. For more, well, scripted things, I'll be using the 85mm and the 50mm, but as some of you know, this is not ideal when you are dealing with kids.-John Christian

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels amazing *after* micro-adjustment This is a lens I wanted to love right out of the box. Paired with my Sony a99, I shot some casual photos and a wedding with it but the focus was killing me.The motor is silent and very responsive in well-lit conditions, but AF suffered in the dark. For comparison, my old Tokina 80-200mm f/2.8 that uses the camera body to AF locked on quicker and in the same conditions. I found myself manually focusing most of the time at during the reception at night.That said, the focus ring feels very good and dampened nicely to give you precision control. AF in video mode on the a99 is quiet but the built-in microphone will pick up click noises when the focus hits the end of its range.Another problem was the back-focus. I resorted to micro-adjusting on the job but had no time to perfect. After spending an off day playing and calibrating it, I finally had sharp, accurate shots at f/1.4 after fine tuning to -7 micro-adjustment on the a99 body.When it focuses properly wide open, it is very impressive. Bokeh looks great. The focal length feels good for walk around. The short minimum focus distance allows for closeups. Build and finish are very good. Amazing is within reach, but you have to meet it halfway. I plan to use this as my standard lens over the Minolta 28-70mm f/2.8.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tack Sharp The SIGMA 35mm f/1.4 Art lens is just about the perfect prime on an SLR. It offers width for indoor shots... aperture for indoor shots... and stunning bokeh. I thought he 85mm f/1.4 was great, but this is it... indoors. Happy Shooting,
