Sigma’s New ”Art” 35mm Prime Lens

Sigma has announced the 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens. It’s also the first lens in Sigma’s Art range. It sports a hyper sonic motor for quiet autofocus, Super Multi-Layer Coating to help in the elimination of flare and ghosting and four Super Low Dispersion lenses that pair with a single Low Dispersion lens.

With a wide, fast maximum aperture of f/1.4, this 35mm lens lets in lots of light and ensures the brightness needed to shoot crisp images indoors, in evening light and when handheld.

The 35mm focal length in the full-frame format is wide enough for dramatic perspectives and for shooting in cramped interior spaces.

When using this lens on a camera with an APS-C sized sensor, the equivalent focal length is approximately 50mm, which makes it a very fast “normal” lens, ideal for street photography, photojournalism, portraiture and all your day-to-day needs.

This lens, SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM, achieves extraordinary expressive power at the aperture value at F1.4. For wide angle photography, it ensures excellent brightness with the large F1.4 aperture and a beautiful bokeh effect.

The lens will be available in Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sigma and Sony fit.

Price: $899.00/ £799.99
