In September 2012, Sigma introduced its very first Art prime lens; the 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art. Today, it remains Sigma’s best-selling prime lens AND best-selling Art lens. Simply put, this sales statistic removes anything subjective from the consumer appeal equation and makes it a fact. The 35mm f/1.4 Art lens is the prime Art lens of choice year over year since 2012.
Speaking to this, recently, Fstoppers published an article entitled, “Lifetime Review Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens” which is one consumer/user’s perspective on how, what and why this lens continues to reign. We bring this to your attention now to speak to current owners to restate the reasons why you love your Sigma 35mm Art lens and validate that those reasons stand even seven years later. For those of you considering a purchase, Sigma remains the leader.
In his article, photographer Scott Choucino discusses his experiences and observations of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens over the years which happens to be from the beginning; it is his lifetime review of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4.
“I quickly fell in love with this lens and I have heavily used it since its release date in 2013, I would go as far as saying that it is my favorite lens in my bag, even though it is no longer my most used lens.”
“This lens was the biggest change any piece of kit has ever made to a genre of photography that I was working within. Once I got the 35mm lens and my wedding images started getting out there, my bookings just sky rocketed.”
“This lens is built for hard professional use. I can’t see this lens breaking within the next 10 years considering what its been through and how robust it has proved to be.”
“The optics are incredible…” “…I can’t think of another 35mm lens for the Canon system that can compete.”
“If you really want to tell a story, work with available light and have professional level optics, then this is the best bang for your buck at the focal length.”
