    The Best

    I have quite a few of Nikon's professional lenses and I decided to take a leap of faith and try the Sigma art lenses due to their fantastic reputation and there is a reason all of the reviews out there comparing this lens to the top of line Nikon and Canon equivalents rate the Sigma higher. At F1.4 this lens is scary sharp and the bokeh is something that other lenses dream of having. It's like shooting the equivalent of a Leica or medium format lens in how creamy the backgrounds can get with fantastic subject isolation for a lens this wide. if you are looking for the best there is no other option, especially since it is also significantly less expensive than it's Nikon/Canon rivals and outperforms them on every level. Some reviews would have you worry about Sigma's future and/or current compatibility but I had no issues on my Df or D700 and with their new lens base you can update the lens and tweak it to perfection if you need to. Build quality is superb and on par with modern Nikon pro lenses but behind their older pro lenses like the 85mm f1.4 D. The only other thing I have to add here is that this lens is for full frame and there are better, less expensive options for a crop sensor camera's like the Nikkor 35mm afs f1.8 dx and Sigma's also excellent 30mm F1.4.

    I wasn't very sure about buying this lens at first, mainly because I didn't have a very good past experience with Sigma, and I didn't want to spend an extra $50 on the USB calibration device. I ended up biting the bullet anyway because of all the recommendations. I figured I could always return it if it doesn't live up to the hype. Boy was I glad I bought this lens. I was lucky enough to get a lens without any focus issues! I've shot at least a thousand images so far, and all of them are tack sharp. I have never seen single strands of hair so sharp and without any distortions coming straight out of the camera in RAW format. The only negative about this lens is that at f/1.4 there are some severe vignetting that causes your entire image look underexposed, but that's easily fixed by bumping the exposure compensation up 0.3 or 0.7. Now I have this lens on 90% of the time, and only switch to my 16-35mm in special circumstances where I need the special perspective or when I'm in cramped spaces.

    Tack Sharp Lens

    One of my favorite new lenses for weddings! The lens is tack sharp, but I used the Sigma Dock to do some slight adjustments! Sigma lenses are quality lenses for the price and you can buy 2-3 sigma lenses for the price of one Nikon professional lens! To me the value in Nikon lenses is just not there anymore. I used to be pro nikon 100% but after using the Sigma lenses I've purchased the 35, 50, 85, and 135 Sigma. Previously used 24-70 and 70-200 and I will continue to use my 70-200 for ceremonies. But the primes stay on my lens for formals, receptions and detail shots! Cant recommend this lens more!

    I researched and researched this lens and read every comparison possible. I couldnt find a bad thing said about this lens. I shot this and the nikon and couldnt agree more. I recommend this lens to everyone looking for something at this distance. I cant understand paying double for the nikon version. 1 year since purchase and I couldnt be happier with it.

    This lens was at the top of my budget but I have been absolutely astonished at the photos! So crisp, depth of field at 1.4 is unreal and the auto focus makes it easy and fun. Two thumbs up from a lifestyle and family photographer!

    This lens is incredible. I used to shoot events and portraits mostly with a Nikon 24-70mm 2.8 and that lens has sat in my camera bag as a back up ever since I purchased this Sigma 35mm ART lens. It's crazy sharp, fast, and much lighter than my 24-70mm. It works great in low light as well.

    Was having to fine tune my camera for focus on the Nikon D750 while using this lens. I have heard many awesome reviews on this lens however after buying it the second time I'm not happy with the outcome. Could also be related to my camera and the lens as well.

    I thought about buying this lens for MONTHS before I actually bought it. And now that I have it, I'm in LOVE with this lens!! I may not take it off my camera. If you're trying to decide if this lens is worth it, it most definitely is!!

    Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Review
    Sigma's produced an excellent lens in the 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG HSM, with comparatively great performance at the ƒ/1.4 aperture setting, where the lens will no doubt be used for the majority of the time. There's a lot to like here:Full Review
