Sigma 35mm F1.4 Art Lens: Excellence in Every Shot
The Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lens stands out as a top-tier prime lens for Nikon F-mount cameras, renowned for its superior image quality and versatile performance. This lens is a favorite among photographers specializing in portraits, street scenes, and landscapes, thanks to its exceptional sharpness, fast f/1.4 aperture, and aesthetically pleasing bokeh. Its advanced optical construction, featuring FLD and SLD glass elements along with aspherical lenses, ensures images are crisp and free from distortions and chromatic aberrations. The lens's wide aperture not only produces beautiful background blur but also excels in low-light conditions, capturing clear images where light is scarce. The Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) provides swift, precise, and quiet autofocus, suitable for both photography and videography. Durably built and weather-sealed, it's equipped to handle challenging environments. The 35mm focal length is ideal for a variety of subjects, balancing a wide perspective without the extremes of wider lenses. With its combination of high-quality optics, robust build, and versatile focal length, the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is a valuable asset for Nikon photographers seeking to elevate their photographic work.
Exceptional Image Quality: Advanced optical design with FLD and SLD glass elements, plus aspherical lenses, ensures sharp, detailed images with minimal distortion and chromatic aberration.
Fast f/1.4 Aperture: Achieve stunning bokeh and excellent low-light performance, capturing sharp images even in challenging lighting conditions.
Smooth and Quiet HSM Autofocus: The Hyper Sonic Motor guarantees fast, accurate, and silent autofocus, ideal for both stills and video shooting.
Durable Construction: High-quality, weather-sealed build makes it resilient against dust, moisture, and splashes, enhancing its longevity.
Versatile Focal Length: The 35mm focal length is a perfect balance for capturing everyday moments, environmental portraits, and landscapes, offering a wide field of view without being too wide or too narrow.
- Lens construction - A single FLD glass lens, which boasts the same performance as a fluorite lens, is combined with four SLD glass lenses to minimize chromatic aberration. And optimized power distribution helps correct various types of optical aberration. These features give this F1.4 large-aperture lens truly optimal image quality.
- Exclusive low-dispersion glass - Most chromatic aberration can be removed by combining a high-refractivity convex lens element with a low-refractivity concave element. Yet residual chromatic aberration known as “secondary spectrum” may still remain. To minimize this secondary spectrum, which can be a serious issue with conventional lenses, SIGMA lenses feature up to three types of exclusive low-dispersion glass offering superior performance: ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion), SLD (Special Low Dispersion) and FLD (“F” Low Dispersion). In particular, FLD glass offers ultra-low dispersion in combination with high transmittance and the anomalous dispersion characteristics of fluorite.
- Rounded diaphragm - When photographing with point light sources such as electric lights or reflections on a body of water in the background, the rounded 9-blade diaphragm helps produce an attractive bokeh effect—even at large-aperture settings.
- HSM (Hypersonic motor) - Delivers high AF speed and extremely quiet performance.
- Floating system - This system adjusts the distance between lens groups during focusing, thereby reducing the amount of lens movement required. The result is less aberration at different shooting distances. Benefits are particularly great in macro lenses because they cover a wide range of shooting distances, and in wide-angle lenses, which employ asymmetric configurations of lens elements.
- TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) - A first for the industry, the barrel of the lens features a new TSC (Thermally Stable Composite) that offers minimal thermal shrinkage combined with exceptional hardness. It also offers 25% greater elasticity than polycarbonate. Since its thermal shrinkage is low, TSC matches well with metal parts, further contributing to the high-precision construction of the lens. TSC also makes possible slimmer forms for parts like zoom rings and scaling rings.
- Flare and ghosting reduction - SIGMA’s Super Multi-Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting to help photographers produce sharp and high-contrast images even in backlit conditions. The included lens hood can be attached to block out extraneous light, which can have a negative effect on rendering performance.
- High-precision, rugged brass bayonet mount - The brass mount combines high precision with rugged construction. Its treated surfaces and enhanced strength contribute to the exceptional durability of the lens.

It is so nice to see a small family owned shop instead of these big box stores. I generally felt cared about when getting my blackmagic cinema camera. Love the quality of the images and how easy it is to use.Read More
This small business has the best customer service HANDS DOWN!!
Lucas worked with me diligently to help me find a camera that would fit my needs and that would arrive in time for my trip. I take photos, but wanted a smaller, more compact camera to take with me when traveling. He even reached out to other camera experts to make sure he was giving me the best advice for the equipment that would accommodate my needs!
Lucas was patient with me and was in constant contact with the camera supplier to keep me updated on the status of my order and when the items would be ready for shipment. Once my order arrived to the store, it was in my hands in less than 2 days. I would give 10 stars to this business if I could!!
SHOP SMALL! :)
In short: I was able to receive the black colorway below retail and free next day shipping with the promos that they offered for being a new camera web-shop based from AZ.
Long story: Lucas who is prolly the only rep for the company cuz they're so small is the best dude ever. Since i ordered he responded on emails and updates quicker than some of my friends texting me back about where am at on the list as people just kept cancelling their order. I went from 9th place in line to 4th place in line for the silver. And he hit me up saying that they were still waiting on Fuji to send shipping updates and that no company knows what they get on their weekly fuji shipments other than from a 24 hour window of receiving shipping details.
He then noted that there were two black X100Vs available that were reserved to customers who ordered but have not confirmed. I said if they dont confirm please let me know and ill take that instead of the silver. The next day he hits me saying the customer said to cancel and he sent me an invoice. I ordered accessories for the camera on amazon right after and my package for the camera came before my amazon package. Lucas was super nice and transparent about everything. Dope experience from NUZIRA.
Lucas was so incredibly helpful!!! I’ve genuinely never had better customer service. They offered to stay late so I could get my order and were so patient with all my questions. I would give them 10 stars if I could.Read More
NUZIRA MADE MY MONTH!
I was a little concerned when I first came across this small business but I am so so thankful I di! They have the NICESt staff and customer service. I have been on the waitlist for this camera for a few months now so when Lucas called saying they had it back in stock I was so freaking excited! Made my whole month. This camera absolutely lives up to the hype. I love how lightweight it is. I can pop it into any bag and head out the door. the images are crisp, high quality, and stunning. I use film sim and not film sim. The film simulations are nearly identical to real film. I have another fuji camera that does film sim but it can't even be compared to this one. I love my Fujifilm X100v so much! Amazing camera! Thanks you Nuzira!
