The Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens was the first in the Art series and has been a valuable tool for a wide range of photographers. How does the Sony version fare? This excellent video review takes a look at the lens and what sort of results you can expect in normal usage. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent video review takes a look at the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Sony E cameras. You might remember that the 35mm f/1.4 was the lens that kickstarted the entire Art line's popularity as sharp and affordable, and for Sony shooters, it offers a very popular focal length paired with a wide maximum aperture at quite an affordable price. This version features an FLD element and four SLD elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and improved clarity, two aspherical elements for reduced distortion and improved sharpness, Super Multi-Layer Coating for reduced flares and ghosting and improved contrast, a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smooth bokeh, Hyper Sonic Motor, and dust- and splash-resistant design. Altogether, it looks like an intriguing option for photographers who need such a lens at a reasonable price. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
