Comparing Sigma Art 35mm f1.4 DG HSM (Canon) VS. Yongnuo’s 35mm f/2 lens
Updated: Oct 4, 2019
I bought the Sigma on sale for $1,200 and the Yongnuo was only $139 on Amazon.
Here are the results: Overall I feel they are all pretty close - there IS a slight difference, but the Yongnuo 35mm is a great buy for the money!
I feel if you shot a full session and used both lens, you would not be able to tell the difference if shot at f2.0 or higher - possibly even f1.8 without inspecting every detail. If you want a 35mm and need to shoot lower than f2.0 I would recommend getting the Sigma Art 35mm or even the Canon 35mm...but I'll just stick with my Canon 50mm 1.4 when I need more depth of field. If you want to save money on a 35mm, then the Yonguo is great value! If you are looking for a brand name lens and price isn’t an issue, I would probably say to get the Canon 35mm or Nikon 35mm - that comes with image stabilization. Sigma is more of a mid-range price lens compared to the Nikon or Canon brands. I'm off to the store to return the Sigma and buy the Yongnuo!
