The Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM is a state of the art lens designed for full frame cameras but can also be used with APS-C sensors as well.

short answer? this is a great PJ style portrait lens, environmental portraits. Its not a good head shot or head and shoulder or even half body portrait lens, as the shorter focal length forces you to be very close to your subject for those shots, leading to perspective distortion.

Longer answer is, what lenses do you have? what is your style of photography? what body are you using it on? what are you hoping to get out of it that you are not getting from your 50 1.8? do you have any zoom lenses that covers 35 mm, which you can use and see if you like the look of that focal length?

I and many other photogs find 35 mm fast prime on full frame the sweet spot for walk around. If I could own only one prime lens, it would be a 35 1.4. others prefer the 24 mm or the 50mm. No right or wrong.

Since a lot of SDers seems to buy high end cameras like A7rII and the like with no idea of sensor size and "what lens to buy", yes, this will work for A7rII Smilie

And yes, it'll work on the a6xxx or a5xxx as well.

I would also consider the Samyang/Rokinon 35mm 1.4. I bought that lens for my A7iii and have been very happy with it. Got it for $399+tax when Amazon had 20% back with a prime card, so considerably cheaper than the Sigma.

Just contacted B&H to see if they can match the price. If they can adjust it on the website we'll be able to use the code YOUGO2BH to make it 649. However they just gave me a temporary -$100 coupon code. Sad.

I have the tamrom 28-75 2.8 for my Sony and wasn't sure if I should get this 35mm 1.4 for a walk around prime lens or the Sony 24mm 1.4gm.

How are you liking that so far? I am debating getting it but not sure if I really need it.

Awesome lens. It stays on my a7riii. I tend to hike quite a bit when I travel so the size and weight are a plus.

the reason why I'm looking for a 1.4 prime is for better subject isolation

This is a great lens don't get me
Wrong but not in the same league as the sigma art. The bokeh at 1.4 is buttery smooth and very agréable to the eye, way better than what the camera manufacturers did.
And if you have a very high res cameras, the sigma is also better in term of resolving and getting a sharper more detailed image.

How does this compare to the L-series equivalent for Canon?

I wouldn't say that the Samyang and Sigma 35mm are in different leagues, and this is coming from someone who has owned the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art for Nikon. I recently sold it after selling my D750.

The Sigma was very sharp, but it was definitely not in a different league to the Samyang, at least not the Samyang 35mm. There are many comparisons between the Samyang and the $1500 Sony 35 1.4 GM, and the Samyang comes close to the Sony in image quality.

I'm pretty happy with mine at $430 net with tax. Great image quality and fast AF. It's quite heavy though, but so is the Sigma.

I'd get the 24mm 1.4 as your Tamron doesn't cover that focal length.

It's supposed to be an incredible lens due to it's size, weight and image quality, but I just can't get myself to spend $1400 on it.

Thanks for the response. Yeah I'll just get the 24mm since I don't have anything that wide yet. But for this price it's so hard to pass in this lens.
