Got this lens in before Christmas and trust me it does NOT dissapoint.  Main reason for purchase was I really wanted a little bit of a wider focal distance then my 50 1.4 could offer and but didnt want to invest a ton in it.  Have taken close to 5000 shots with it and absolutely love it.  Focuses fast, hunting is very limited in low light (if at all) and build quality is fantastic.  The images are extremely sharp and the bokeh is supurb.  Anyone interested in a 35mm 1.4 should definitely consider this one first before investing nearly double for the name brand counterpart.

Well, I will tip my cap to Sigma on this 35mm 1.4 DG HSM Lens. I read some very early reviews on this which were mostly quite positive and decided it was time to purchase a 35mm prime for my Nikon D700 full frame body. I am *NOT* disappointed in the slightest bit. This lens is delivering everything I had hoped for and more. Having owned several of Nikon’s professional lenses (24-70 2.8, 80-200 2.8, etc) I was surprised to see build quality to be as good as it is. I feel I’ll own this lens for 20 years; it’s built like a tank. I would advice you all to research well before buying read my review at
