Great BOKEH with Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG Art on Fuji X-E2

Fujifilm X-E2, Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG Art, Nikon G AFS lens to Fujifilm X, ISO 6400, ƒ/1.4, 1/300

I wanted to test the Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG Art with Nikon mount on my Fuji X-E2. With the help of the Nikon G AFS lens to Fujifilm X converter I shot some of our Christmas ornaments we just put up.

This is shooting as close as the lens will focus.

Fuji also added magnification options for fine tuning focus, which is great. You simply press the rotary dial on the back of the X-E2 and the camera switches to zoom mode. In magnified mode, autofocus still works and you can see it much better.

Now the Nikon G AFS lens to Fujifilm X makes the depth-of-field is even more shallow because the lens isn now further from the sensor.

As you can see this combination of the Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 with the Fuji X-E2 will give you some great BOKEH!!

Shooting ornaments on Christmas tree with Nikon D750 and Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG Art, Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art Lens

Just a quick comparison of shooting the Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 DG Art wide open capturing ornaments on a Christmas tree.

I love the extreme shallow depth-of-field of the 35mm @ ƒ/1.4.

While the Sigma 24-105mm f/4 DG OS HSM Art Lens isn’t as fast as the ƒ/1.4 35mm I like the tighter shot at 105mm.

Which do you like more?
