Equipped with a rounded 9 blade diaphragm, the lens creates a bokeh effect that is sure to please. The Sigma 35mm f/1.4 lens offers users a Super Multi-Layer Coating to reduce flare and ghosting and provide sharp and high contrast images even in backlit environments.

Sigma is very proud to announce a newly developed USB dock, which will be sold separately and exclusively for new product lines. It can be paired with new Sigma Optimization Pro software to update the lens firmware and adjust parameters, such as micro focus adjustment.

"We're thrilled to break into this category of lenses with a product from our new Global Vision," said Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of Sigma Corporation of America. "We're confident that our A1 quality control system, coupled with the industry's first USB dock, will differentiate our lens in the category. Since it's so versatile -- ideal for scenes including landscapes, portraits, close-ups and studio photography -- we think that it will be a hit."

The new Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens is available for the retail price of $899.
