Bjorn Petersen tested the new Sigma 35mm f/1.2 DG DN Art L-mount lens and writes:
So, after a week of visiting the gardens with this lens, it’s tough for me to say that I really do like the lens. Despite its weight and size, it’s a serious lens with seriously good performance. I say it’s “tough” for me to like this because I’m not really much of a wide-angle lens person. But, with the flexibility afforded by this lens’s fast design, I felt like it could play multiple parts. It has a wide field of view, perfect for establishing shots; an f/1.2 design, for isolating subjects; and, when you mix the two, you get this enticing mixture of being able to focus selectively on your subject without losing “the big picture.” It’s an effect that’s caught my attention and a lens I’d be excited to continue using into the future.
