    That would be a great lens for wedding photography.

    So if you use this lens on a 35mm what effect will it have given that it's a DG and optimized for digital performance? Some vignetting?

    I'm not sure, you might have to look that up.

    I seem to remember a review of Sigma lenses where even the reviewer didn't know exactly what DG meant. I don't think it's a digital crop only type of lens (like Canon EF-S)...I think it just means that it has the extra coatings on the rear element to reduce glare from the sensor. It should work just fine on a film body (keep in mind the crop factor, it will 'feel' longer on your digital body). I'm not 100% sure about that though.
