A Bit Of Everything (Sigma 35mm f/1.4, Canon In East Africa, And More)

Sigma 35mm f/1.4

Two new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM reviews for you. The terrific Sigma 35mm f/1.4 (price & specs), part of Sigma’s “Art” line-up, is getting a lot of positive feedbacks from photographers and reviewers.

Cameralabs writes in their verdict:

The Sigma 35/1.4 DG HSM is a very exciting lens. You can produce shots with image quality you might think were impossible at a wide open aperture of f1.4. Plus the build-quality and the new design support Sigma’s claim to have developed and manufactured a lens to professional standards.

The pros of the Sigma, according to cameralabs:

Outstanding performance in the corners of a high-resolution full-frame sensor even wide open.
Good build quality.
Quiet and fast AF operation.
Relatively low price compared to the big names.

Next, photographer Justin Wojtczak of (source: fstoppers) made a video-review of the lens.

Generic tidbits…:
