p.1 #1 · Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM first impressions



Read Roger Cicala's first impressions on the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A1.
According to his Imatest test, the lens is very sharp outperforming Canon and Nikon's own.

B&H Photo just received a limited stock of the new and sought after Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM A1.

Yes! So again we have to spend about 43% more (inluding our 19% tax) for the same lens ...

Roger, I liked you. And again: I will wear your Shirt with honor.
But after this quick "review" I have to think about quiting contact.
Following your lines is getting to expensive for my vallet.

There’s some onion-ring bokeh in the third photo, though the rendering is otherwise pleasant. Shaping up to be a nice lens!

I was thinking a 28 1.8, but may have to step up. Hope to see some full reviews in next couple of weeks. If it outperforms the L consistently, it becomes a no brainer...

I'm saving you money!!! It's cheaper than the 35 L. It's probably $1,500 cheaper than the 35 L II will be.

Buying the Sigma now will be kind of like a vaccination, helping you resist when the II is announced.

Waiting for the shoot-out against the new Canon 35mm f/2.0
For my own needs IS is more valuable than the extra stop, but after reading Roger's report I am torn...

@ Massimo:
Same here. Same price. IS against 1 stop. But does the 2.0 reach the Canon L IQ?
Life has been so easy before 2012

I just noticed the canon mount says it comes with a 1 year warranty. I thought they usually offered a 4 year (1 USA and 3 international) warranty
