The Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN is a fairly compact, weather-sealed medium-wide prime lens for L-mount and Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras. It’s designed as a more compact, reasonably priced alternative to ultrafast prime lenses already available in these systems, but that doesn’t mean Sigma has compromised on build or optical quality.

For prime shooters, this could be a solid option as your main ‘walk-around’ lens, so long as you get along with the 35mm focal length. Let’s dig in and see what this lens can do.

The Sigma 35mm F2 DG DN is available now at a suggested price of $639 USD.
