One of Sigma's finest creations yet, this lens sets a new benchmark for performance, offering quality that exceeds expectations in every way.

Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power, our new Art line delivers superior image quality for high-level artistic expression. This new lens embodies the concept of our new Art lenses.

Our Art line delivers high-level artistic quality

Sigma is organizing all its interchangeable lenses into three product lines; Contemporary, Art and Sports. Designed with a focus on sophisticated optical performance and abundant expressive power, our Art line delivers high-level artistic expression. Developed with the maximum emphasis on artistic touch, our Art line lenses are designed to meet the expectations of users who value a creative, dramatic outcome above compactness and multifunction. Along with landscapes, portraits, still-life, close-up and casual snaps, they're perfect for the kind of photography that unleashes the inner artist. Ideal for studio photography, they offer just as much expressive scope when capturing architecture, starry skies, underwater shots and many other scenes. The SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is the first lens from the Art line.

Compensate for color aberration to ensure unsurpassed expressive performance

Aberration is an important factor for the lens performance. To actualize a high-performance lens, one of the essential elements is aberration correction. When it comes to aberration, there are chromatic aberration of magnification and axial chromatic aberration. It is possible to correct the chromatic aberration of magnification in photo-editing software whereas axial chromatic aberration cannot be corrected afterwards. This lens incorporates FLD ("F" Low Dispersion) glass elements, which have performance equal to fluorite, and SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements, and by optimizing the power alignment of the lens, both types of aberration have been corrected. The lens achieves ultra-high image quality through the entire focusing range. Also, by appropriate alignment of aspheric lenses, astigmatism and field curvature are corrected. The result is superior optimum resolution even in peripheral areas.

Large maximum aperture of F1.4

In 2005, Sigma released a lens that has aperture value F1.4 designed for digital SLRs, "SIGMA 30mm F1.4 EX DC HSM". Since then, we have produced high-performance lenses by incorporating the latest optical technique, such as the standard lens designed for a full size image sensor, the SIGMA 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM and the medium telephoto lens with large aperture, SIGMA 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM. This lens, SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM, is our fourth lens that 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.

Attractive blur effect

Correction of coma aberration enabled less blur on a point light source in peripheral areas, and the function is best used for astrophotography and illuminations. It is also possible to create an attractive blur to the out of focus areas. The aspheric lens elements used as the first lens have secured peripheral brightness while correcting distortion. The rounded diaphragm creates an attractive blur to the out-of-focus areas of the image.

Floating inner focusing system

This system compensates for astigmatic aberration and spherical aberration and provides extremely high optical performance for close-up photos.

Flare and ghosting conscious design

In order to achieve high rendering on this flagship lens, flare and ghosting were thoroughly measured from an early stage to establish an optical design which is resistant to strong incident light such as backlight. The Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting and provides sharp and high contrast images even in backlit conditions.

Hyper Sonic Motor

The HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures high speed and quiet AF as well as full-time manual focus override by rotation of the focus ring. With the enhanced AF algorithm, smoother AF is achieved.

Brass made bayonet mount

This lens incorporates a brass made bayonet mount which has both high accuracy and durability. A special treatment to reinforce its strength is applied to the surface giving it greater strength and making it highly resistant to long-term use.

Ease of use

The new product lines incorporate rubber for the attachment part of the provided lens hood. For better usability, the design of the lens cap and AF/MF changeover switch have been improved. In order to ensure high accuracy of the product, all metallic parts and the new compound material, TSC (Thermally Stable Composite), which has high affinity to metal parts, are housed internally.

Newly developed "USB DOCK" exclusively for new product lines

Based on these new lines, we have developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

Evaluation with Sigma's own MTF measuring system "A1"

We used to measure lens performance with MTF measuring system using conventional sensors. However, we've now developed our own proprietary MTF (modulation transfer function) measuring system (A1) using 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors. Even previously undetectable high-frequency details are now within the scope of our quality control inspections. The SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM will all be checked using this "A1" before they are shipped.

The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM for Sony E-Mount is a very fast, very sharp lens that exhibits low chromatic aberrations and little barrel distortion. Vignetting at wide-open apertures is the only real optical issue of note, something that other similarly fast lenses also suffer from, and stopping down...

The Sigma has the best results of all 1.4/35 lenses, tested by us so far in the categories of resolution, distortion, chromatic aberration and coma correction. It also fares very well in the case of astigmatism correction and the autofocus accuracy, being one of the cheapest lenses in this class of...

Verdict: This lens has a versatile focal length and fast f/1.4 aperture. With 13 elements packed into 11 groups, the image quality is amazing. It is a bit heavy but it’s fine for larger cameras.


Sigma appear to have everything right with this new lens. It delivers excellent optical quality, at a tempting price point that is quite a bit cheaper than the competition form the likes of Canon, Nikon & Sony.

This 35mm f/1.4 is from Sigma’s acclaimed Art range, and has been recognised by many as providing some of the best image quality currently available... Packing in 13 elements in 11 groups – including one FLD and 4 SLD low-dispersion elements, as well as two aspherical elements – keeps the image...

If the new 35mm F1.4 DG HSM lens is anything to go by, Sigma are definitely raising their game with the recent introduction of their three new lens ranges (Art, Sports and Contemporary).


The 35mm focal length has provided a classic angle of view for general photography ever since the days of film, and it’s just as relevant for ‘full frame’ cameras in the digital era. Whether it’s equally useful for cameras with APS-C sensors depends on how much you need lens speed.

DP Review

The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM is a truly excellent lens, that performs as well in the field as its superb lab test results suggest. With fast silent focusing and solid build, its lower price makes it a compelling alternative to the camera manufacturers' equivalents if you don't need weather-sealing.


Wow I am speechless, this is hands down the best lens I have used on my D600. Sharpness and micro sharpness are incredible, bokeh is soft - stays on my camera 90% of the time now. Have the dock nice but no adjustments were necessary. Just get one...


The Sigma 35mm F1.4 is nothing short of an optical masterpiece. Its bokeh is worth dying for, and given how demanding today's cameras are, we were surprised to see how well it suppresses chromatic aberrations, flare, and ghosting.

Terrific lens. It has a a character which is not found in zoom or standard lenses. It replaced my Nikon 24-70 2.8 and the results are so much better. This lens output is on par with the legendary Pentax FA31 Ltd. Autofocus is consistent and the 3D tracking works great on my Nikons D700 and D810.

Fantastic quality lens, big and heavy, but worth the extra weight. Its super sharp, fast autofocus, wide maximum aperture for low light, and great bokeh, and solidly build. The Sigma 35mm Art is equal, if not better than the Canon L series 35mm, and is now my main wedding lens.

I am very happy with this lens. I have introduced many photographers to this wonderful and practical focal length and a very good price point. This lens have replaced my standard zoom and doesn't come off the camera for weddings.

SRS Microsystems

Have only taken a few shots with it but it is definitely something special, and it is built like a tank.


This is an amazing lens. So sharp even at 1.4. Solidly built. I'm have a nikon d610 full frame and the rest of my lenses are nikon and this is far superior in imaging quality and build

Clifton Cameras

An addition to my lens collection which was deffinatley worth it! Photos are clear and crisp and colours true. Totally recommend to any aspiring or even proffesional photographer!
