Dustin has completed his review of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG Art series lens for Canon Rumors. This lens has been on the market for a few years now, but has been brought back into the conversation with the release of Canon’s 35mm f/1.4L II, and Tamron’s 35mm f/1.8. The field of 35mm offerings is quite crowded and Dustin has attempted to break it down the best he can by directly comparing the pros and cons of each of the lenses that compete with the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG Art.
The Sigma is definitely worthy of your consideration, and should be for years to come.
The merits of this lens are not going to be determined by my conclusions. Over the past three years this lens has received both critical and commercial success, and is, in my opinion, perhaps the most important lens that Sigma has ever made. Sigma was able to completely redefine its position in the market based primarily on the strength of this lens. It is telling that while chart tests show an advantage in resolution for the new Canon 35L II, that advantage is slight despite three additional years of development and a price point double that of the Sigma.
