7artisans surprised us with their 1.4/28 so we were rather curious when they announced a 1.4/35. So let’s see what they have cooked up.
Most images in this review can be found in full resolution in my 7artisans 35/1.4 flickr set.
The Sigma 40mm 1.4 Art DG is one of the heaviest non-super-tele prime lenses and on first sight it also looks more like a serious tele lens than a medium wideangle. But is it also as good optically as it is heavy? Let us have a closer look!
The Zeiss Batis 2/40 CF is a lens of a very popular focal length / aperture class that was missing in the FE lineup from the beginning. When we released our review 6 months ago there were some serious issues and Zeiss released a firmware update some time later. Read our review to check if that could solve all the issues.

Sigma now offers the DSLR designs 35mm 1.4 Art and 40mm 1.4 Art and the newly designed 35mm 1.2 Art for Sony E-mount cameras. Let us find out what the differences between those 3 are and if there is a reason to get one of the bigger, heavier and more expensive lenses.
