Test/ First Impression Sigma 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary


I've just received my first Sigma lens today - the 35mm f/2 DG DN Contemporary.

I usually shoot with zoom lenses and all my other L-mount lenses are Panasonic, so this is a first for me. The 35mm focal length is a favourite of mine and the price was great. It's a really well-built little lens, solid and compact. Great quality finish. And I love the aperture ring, something I used on the PL15 lens on MFT.

I took the lens out with my S5 on a short walk this afternoon close to home. Really happy with the photos. They look sharp and I enjoyed shooting with just one prime.

Lovely shots Peter. I really like my 35/2. It's a very nice overall package. I have zero complaints about its IQ.
I thought I would add a few short video clips using this lens. The first is regular speed and the second is slow-motion using S&Q mode.
