Main features:
  1. As part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.

  2. Wide-angle lens is designed for full-frame Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras but can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 52.5mm equivalent focal length.

  3. Bright f/1.4 maximum aperture is particularly well-suited for working in available light conditions and provides extensive control over depth of field for isolating subject matter with selective focus.

  4. A Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.

  5. Integrated stepping motor realizes quick and quiet autofocus, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance.

  6. Manual aperture ring can be de-clicked for smooth, silent aperture switching to benefit video applications. Additionally, a dedicated aperture ring lock switch can also be employed to prevent accidental shifting of the aperture setting.

  7. Built-in Autofocus-Lock (AFL) button which can be assigned additional functions widens the range of operations available on the lens.

  8. Rounded eleven-blade diaphragm contributes to a smooth and pleasing bokeh quality.

  9. Weather-resistant construction with a brass bayonet that affords improved mounting accuracy and rigidity.

I think recent Sony pricing has kept the Sigma pricing down as well. This is the same price as the old Art when Sigma Art was still a new thing. Iím curious to see the performance of this one as I havenít had the chance to buy the GM 35.

If this performs at the level of the 85mm 1.4 DG DN, the prospect of a 35/85 1.4 prime combo that can compete with the GMs for ~ $2100 total is an incredible value.

Well that's certainly enticing, if you could get 90/95% of the overall performance at around 64% of the price. Of course it depends on where the compromises are and what your priorities are as well

I previously owned the Sigma 35mm Art HSM lens in E Mount and I was already really happy with that lens. If they can just improve on it and make it the same size as the EF/FX lens but a bit lighter then it would be really popular!

Would love to see this Sigma compete with the amazing Sony on all fronts (performance and size) at 2/3rds the price. Let's see if they can knock this out of the park.

Less sharpness than the GM, smoother rendering please like the 35i (I donít think it will happen though, I bet we get a razor).

$900 is good...quite a bit cheaper than the GM, and not too much more than the 35i. I would have guess $1,000-1,100

The specifications of the Sigma "35mm F1.4 DG DN | Art" are 15 elements in 11 groups, minimum shooting distance of 30cm, maximum shooting magnification of 1: 5.4, number of aperture blades of 11, filter diameter 67mm, size φ75.5x109.5mm ( The E-mount version is 111.5mm) and weighs 645g (E-mount version is 640g)

The weight of this makes the GM look even more appealing.

The FE 35/1.4 GM's length is only 96mm vs 111.5mm and it weighs 524g vs 640g.
So, the Sigma 35/1.4 DG DN is 116g heavier and 15.5mm longer.

The Sony focuses closer at 25cm vs 30cm and has max magnification of 0.26x vs 0.18x.

But the Sigma has an extra element (15 vs 14) and costs $900 vs $1,400 ($500 cheaper!)

the sigma is nearly the same size as the 35 ZA, with smaller filter.... that price though......

If I were in the market, I'd keep saving for the GM for the extra satisfaction factor. It costs a good bit more, but still reasonable.

Which means is about the same size/length as the Samyang 35/1.4 E-mount which also has a 67mm filter thread.

Hmm I have been holding off as well to see what this new sigma 35 1.4 will be like. Very curious to see it's performance vs the GM Man we are having one hell of a year of lens releases. The GAS is creeping around the corner again even tho I put it away nicely for long time

It's probably best not to see our options as a linear scale, from least good to best. Preferences in images, yes! Sigma got very good optical results from the quartet of DG DN lenses, and this one carries a very high element count, 15 against 17 in the faster 35/1.2. Processes and glass are better now.

Disappointment will not be due to a lack of sharpness, and the price level is excellent news (Sony has always been a big asker for their lenses). My guess is we'll see a quite different image appearance coming from 'modern Sigma', hopefully a harmony of high MTF and the DG DN lenses' rendering. It will be interesting, maybe very interesting. They tend to go their own way.

I am really happy with my Samyang 35/1.4 but am curious to see what Sigma does. In this FL I donít mind having more than 1 lenses.

I saw an interview with Sigmas CEO somewhere where he talked about having set a competitive price with a somewhat lower margin than they usually would on one of the new ff mirrorless lenses because he deemed it to be best for them in that case. So they seem to evaluate the market and what else are available and price their gear accordingly.

The new mirrorless 85/1.4 is 1199 USD and the DSLR version is 1099 USD.
The new mirrorless 35/1.4 is 899 USD and the DSLR version is 799 USD.

One can see a pattern there. If that will hold also for next release is off course not necessary sure.

Sigma haven't announced a Sigma Stage Online event yet for this, so it might still be a week or two away.

itís all good-very good! Obviously, the new Sigma 35mm will be better than the old, celebrated, 35mm (Art) which will be further discounted both used and new (if Sigma keeps it in catalogue). As for size/weight vs the Sony 35GM: Sigma may have opted for more glass and less vignetting?

Iíll resist the 35GM because I have the Sigma 35 F1.2 as well as the tiny/featherweight Zony 35mm F2.8 as well as the CV 35mm F2.0 APO, (*) Likely Sigma has decided on aggressive pricing because of so much competition. They can always raise prices after they establish GAS just as Sony can lower them after an initial sales surge.

* Small/lighter but not cheap the CV 35mm is superb wide open over the FF. Never bothered me much to MF with my free hand on a prime with SonyísMF tools.
