About the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art
Before we talk about the Sigma 35mm ART, lets talk about the company. When Sigma was mentioned a few years back, there really wasn’t anything fancy about the company. Typically, the lenses looked like 3rd party lenses and the optics were okay to say the least. Due to the major changes in the company, Sigma had a game changing make over. Not only was the build quality stepped up but so was their optics game and they are officially here to compete for the top spot.
The Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art lens is just killer all around. This lens is as good as, if not better than, the Canon 35mm 1.4 and Nikon 1.4. As it should, the lens feels like a high dollar professional lens.
The 35mm focal length is a great general purpose focal length. On a crop sensor camera, you can expect around a 58mm focal length which is pretty much the ideal length for portraits. You will need to be aware of some slight distortion in your images, but that can easily be fixed in post production if you choose to do so.
Like all of Sigma’s Art series lenses, this lens has the Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), floating internal focusing system, SLD and FLD Glass elements. Yeah it’s nerdy tech talk but their all good things! As mentioned above, this lens can be used on Full Frame and Crop-Sensor cameras.
If you’re after a great low light performing lens, the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art is one of the best out there. Check out the technical specifications on this lens or head over to Sigma’s website to find out more!
