When I first began looking at the new Sigma 35mm f/1.4, I made judgements about its quality. “It’s plastic, yuck.” “I bet that focus control feels like a rusty zipper.” “The AF selector switch will tick me off.” “It won’t match the speed of my Nikon’s and my focusing tendencies.” My preconceived notions were that I was set for a so-so experience.

To begin with, the price point offers a nice trade-off for the professional concerned with the bottom line and an easy saver-upper for the am-hobbyist; Sigma’s bread and butter. This might not be the best 35mm you’re ever going to lay your paws on, but it’ll be close.
