1. Introduction

In a sense you can say Sigma has just made their thrid serious debut in the Sony mirrorless system. The first one was a series of three f/2.8 19, 30, and 60 mm focal lengths lenses designed for APS-C cameras, all of them shapely, very sharp, and cheap at the same time. If you decided to buy them you wouldn't regret your decision for sure.

The second time they modified their exelent Art line primes which, originally, were designed for reflex cameras. The modification consisted of adding an extension so the constructions could be attached directly to mirrorless Sony cameras, either with APS-C or full frame sensors.

Still all were waiting impatiently for true mirrorless Sigma lenses, instruments that were designed for mirrorless full frame cameras from the very beginning. That waiting time ended in July 2019 when three Sony FE and L (L-mount alliance) models were shown: the Sigma A14–24mm f/2.8 DGDN, the Sigma C45mm f/2.8 DGDN, and the Sigma A35mm f/1.2 DGDN.

The last of these lenses fell into our hands as the first and the following chapters present our impressions concerning its optical and mechanical properties – enjoy your reading!

We would like to thank the Sigma ProCentrum company for sending us very quickly the final specimen of the lens for testing.

You are also invited to get acquainted with our test procedure, described in the article "How do we test lenses?" If you feel it’s still not enough, please go to our FAQ section where you can find some further explanation.
