Sigma's new 35mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens is here, and true to Sigma fashion, it is significantly cheaper than first-party options. Does it still offer the same performance and image quality of those first-party options? This excellent video compares the lens to Sony's 35mm f/1.4 G Master to find out.
Coming to you from Manny Ortiz, this great video compares the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG DN Art lens to the Sony FE 35mm f/1.4 GM lens. At $899, the Sigma lens is $500 cheaper than its Sony counterpart. In fact, the 35mm f/1.4 was the lens that first put Sigma's Art line on the map, essentially rewriting the paradigm of the lens market and ushering in an era of high-quality third-party lenses that has offered photographers and filmmakers a much wider range of options and pushing first-party manufacturers to either compete on price or push their lens designs to new extremes to justify their higher prices. Regardless of which lens you end up choosing for your own work, it is certainly great to see companies like Sigma and Tamron continuing to put out such lenses, and it is excellent for the market. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Ortiz.
