This lens is solid and built very well, top notch quality.
Shinebox
Even wide open at f/1.4 this lens produces incredibly sharp images with beautiful color rendition.
William Brassard
It compares to the best that Nikon and Canon lens and is still 500-700 dollars less!

Style Name: Canon
I was very excited for this lens to come out, and had one on pre-order as soon as I was able.

I was lucky enough to already own the Canon 35L, so I was able to do some side by side comparisons. Just as every review site on the web has said, this lens is flat out amazing. The color rendition and contrast was easily on-par with my 35L, and sharpness was much better than the 35L.

Build quality is amazing, and really more on par with the Zeiss type lenses than any of the Canon L series. It feels good in the hand. Solid and smooth. The focus ring is large and easy to turn, while still providing a comfortable level of tension to keep the adjustments from being jumpy.

I did have to dial in +2 Micro Adjustment on my 5D3 in order to get the best results, but once that was done, the sharpness far surpassed the sharpness of my 35L.

Long story short, after a week with the Sigma 35, my 35L was up for sale.

Cons:
Sigma used this new lines of lenses to try to reinvent themselves as lens makers, and show their dedication to a superior product. With all of that build-up, I was disappointed to have to add +2 MA to make the lens right when it was fresh out of the box. However, I haven't noticed any focus shift issues like previous Sigma lenses I've had.

Filter size - The nice thing about Canon L's is that for the most part, everything is 77mm or 72mm threads. Sure, I could get a reducing ring to make my 77mm filters work on the Sigma, but that would be at a cost of not being able to use the hood. I do like the smaller form factor of this lens though, and don't find myself needing to use a CPL on a regular basis like with some other lenses.

In short, if you already have a 35L, by buying this lens, you'd gain a good bit of sharpness wide open. If you don't have a 35mm f/1.4 already, I'd highly recommend this one above the Canon, and above the Zeiss.

Style Name: Nikon Verified Purchase
Well, I will tip my cap to Sigma on this 35mm 1.4 DG HSM Lens. I read some very early reviews on this which were mostly quite positive and decided it was time to purchase a 35mm prime for my Nikon D700 full frame body. I am *NOT* disappointed in the slightest bit. This lens is delivering everything I had hoped for and more. Having owned several of Nikon's professional lenses (24-70 2.8, 80-200 2.8, etc) I was surprised to see build quality to be as good as it is. I feel I'll own this lens for 20 years; it's built like a tank.

The optics are top notch and comparing samples from my shooting over the past 2-3 weeks, it's likely the sharpest lens I've ever owned. Not much fine tuning needed with my D700 to get pinpoint perfect focus either. Color rendition is very good. I process all images via RAW in Lightroom and the amount of data I have to work with here is fantastic.

I honestly couldn't recommend this lens enough. Though I've not shot with Nikon's own expensive 35mm lens, I can't possibly imagine that lens offering anything this isn't. If this is was Sigma has to offer in terms of the future of their artist line of products, Nikon & Canon are *genuinely* going to have a problem on their hands. I'd fill my entire lens lineup with Sigma glass if it were all this good no problem.

Style Name: Canon Verified Purchase
I first rented the Sigma from lensrentals to use on my then primary camera (Nikon D800) and it was spectacular. I was so thrilled with the results that I bought it for the D800. It required an AFMA adjustment of +20 and it was still nowhere near the Liveview focused photos. I returned it and tried again with the Canon 5DMK3. Again, more AF issues, I went through three bad copies for the Canon mount.

Each Sigma had unique focusing issues, from working well outdoors and badly missing focus in artificial lighting, needing different AFMA adjustments on center and outer AF sensors, to only working at certain distances. If I was not paid to shoot, I would have kept the Sigma that was almost reliable. I have since bought a 35L and it was golden on the first try. So far, I love the 35L, to me having total confidence in my gear is bliss. I would rather have a star that performs in the clutch than a superstar that chokes when it matters most.

It is a shame because in ideal light lighting conditions (outdoors at medium distances) the Sigma is spectacular, but this is where I would least use it.

I saw a demo showing the Sigma USB software and it has the option of AFMA at different distances. However, I do not know if it will solve the artificial light problem or AFMA difference on the corner sensors. From what I have seen, the software will not solve these issues.

Style Name: Canon
I own the Canon L 24 1.4, 50 1.2, the 100 2.8 Macro and now, the Sigma 35mm 1.4. I have rented the Canon 35 1.4 extensively for events, and as next year's calendar is filling out with more, I needed to pull the trigger and add this focal length to my main kit.

I don't know if Sigma is losing money on this lens as a loss leader to promote their new art line, or Canon's lenses are just overly premium priced without real competition but this lens is a steal at $900. It is underpriced for it's build and construction, it's optical qualities at 1.4 and 2 are as good if not better than it's brand named counterpart.

I have owned many lenses the last 20 years, and I think the only better constructed lens I have owned was one of my Hasselblad CFE lenses for film.

I would like to add that I use Classic 5Ds and that I feel the AF focus on the Sigma is as fast (if not slightly faster) than the Canon version. This is quite a boon because it breathes new life into my older camera bodies. AF is silent.

I shoot mainly low light events with fill flash at mid to high ISOs and this puppy lights up the rooms and makes my subjects look almost too sharp. What a great problem I have!

I EAGERLY await a redesign of the 85mm 1.4 into this lens style, along with the 24mm 1.4 and would love to see what Sigma can do with a new 50 in this art line (although you will have to be prying my Canon 50 1.2 from my cold dead hands- and even then I may come back and go zombie walker on you!).

Wow! I love this lens!
