The 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM | A is my go-to lens and I’ve used it on Sony bodies since Sigma launched the MC-11, a couple years ago. Now, it ships in E mount, which is even better. It was part of a photo booth I put together last weekend. When the 35mm launched a few years ago, here’s what’s I had to say about it.

Sigma: The wait is over. Shop e-mount primes.

The 35 F/1.4 it’s one of Sigma’s top selling lenses and the first lens in their Art line. It paves the way for what to expect from an Art lens and how healthy the Sony ecosystem is. Pair quality materials, firmware updatable with the USB dock, a 4 year warranty, in a sharp and reliable lens, and you’ve got a real winner—it’s their flagship and a system that’s perfect for a blogger like me on deadline, and budget.

The lens is equipped with technology including a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), floating internal focusing system, SLD and FLD Glass elements. The HSM ensures quiet, high speed, accurate autofocusing while the floating focusing system allows for superior optical performance with subjects at a closer shooting distance. The SLD glass elements along with the FLD glass elements, which are equal to fluorite, help correct both axial and chromatic aberration. The large 1.4 aperture make it ideal in low light and the lens is compatible with the Sigma USB dock and Optimization Pro software to adjust and fine tune focusing parameters. The Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM is a must have for any camera bag.
