I definitely had to learn this the hard way even though it was something I fully suspected prior to ordering. Lol.
Anyhow, based on my very brief experiences so far, I'm finding that the only thing I really enjoy about this thing is the manual focus aids. Quite honestly, I wonder how much more I would like the xt1 if it were possible to mount EF lenses and maintain aperture control.
Funny thing is as soon as I returned my A7R, I installed Magic Lantern for the first time on my 5D III, including the manual focus aids. I don't understand why Canon doesn't provide focus peaking, etc, in stock firmware
Looking back, what I really enjoyed about my Sony experience was the FE 55mm f/1.8 lens. Oh, that was a sweet lens; Wish Canon had a 50 mm at that price with comparable color, contrast, sharpness, bokeh, and AF accuracy. Its compact size was fantastic, too, but I guess Canon's version cannot be as small due to the mirror box
What camera body are you using? I'm thinking this lens may be hit and miss with some bodies. On my 5D2 and 3: no issues.
I'm now on my third copy of the Sigma which is the best one out of the three. That being said, it is still nowhere near the performance of the 35L I had with regard to Autofocus accuracy and speed in all scenarios.
Did you use the USB dock to tune the AF of the Sigma 35/1.4 Art?
-IQ is not noticeably better than my other rigs as some would have you believe.
-The DR madness has yet to make a difference in any of my first 100 shots. I did however deliberately under and over expose a few shots to see how flexible the files would be in post (they were very clean and resolved a lot of detail). This however doesn't really translate into better photos as it was only a real tangible benefit when I deliberately used the wrong exposure for my shots. Time will tell if I actually enjoy having the extra DR as much as I hoped.
Yup, these are things one cannot convince oneself without first-hand experience.
I, too, remember taking an underexposed shot from A7R, pushing the shadows up more than I ever do, feeling impressed and giddy. However, this was totally useless in my normal shooting with competent exposure. Same thing with 36 MP resolution; it's neat to zoom into little hairs and such, but it didn't improve my photography at all.
Hope everything will go well for you John
I tried the adapter with Canon L lenses...it feels
