sigma 35mm f/1.4
The team at put together a breakdown of the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens in comparison to the Canon 35mm f/1.4. The teardown goes into very great depth as to how the lens is made and put together. In conclusion, they believe that just like many other Sigma lenses, it is very well made for the price it entails. It is said that:

This lens is constructed very well. There isn’t the amazing heavy-duty construction of the Canon 35mm f/1.4. Instead, I’d characterize the construction of the Sigma as very efficient and carefully laid out.

Each of the lenses have different disadvantages and advantages to them, but they chose the Canon lens over the Sigma. It all comes down to personal preference when choosing one over the other.

    Happy new year, folks! Hopefully, Sigma will do something interesting for 2016. đź‘Ť

    The biggest advantage that the Canon has over the Sigma is the fact that there are manual adjusters in the lens, (able to mechanically fine-tune the lens)…and related…the Canon copy variation is tighter than the Sigma. (I do not expect the roller bearings etc. in my Sigma at this price level).
    I think that the Sigma is still a great lens at a reasonable price.

    Bear in mind that they rated the Canon’s build as absolutely extraordinary for this type of lens. They had never seen some of its build features in a 35mm prime from *any* lens manufacturer. The Canon is $1800 and weighs 760g, the Sigma Art is $900 and weighs 660g.
