Excerpt: After a lot of research and reading reviews, I settled on this lens. It is sharp and fast and I have not had any problems with it. The 35mm is a perfect distance for an equivalent 56mm on my crop sensor.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I use the Sigma 35mm Art Lens on my Nikon D810 for portrait and general photography. PROS: The center is sharp wide open and the bokeh is beautiful just like everyone says it is. The fit and finish is excellent and I dare say has touches that are even better than Nikons top lenses.
Excerpt: I bought this lens after it was recommended to me by some photography friends. They all raved about it! This is the perfect "just right" lens! Since I bought it I haven't taken it off of my camera.
Excerpt: I have used the Canon 35mm L for a while and have become disappointed in the loss of clarity in the edges of my images when shooting open. I bought this lens a few days ago and did side by side comparisons. And can confirm that the Art Lens is certainly sharper to the edges than the Canon.
Excerpt: I was considering in buying a 35mm prime lens in wich I compare the new Nikon 35 f/1.8g, the Nikon 35 f/1.4 and the Sigma. After reading some reviews and testing the 35 f/1.8g I decided on buying the Sigma.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Very Sharp
