Or you can just buy the amazing SIGMA 35mm 1.4 prime for about 1/2 of what you'd pay for the inferior Canon prime.
...just a thought...
Inferior? The Canon 35mm F/2 IS USM has better mid-frame sharpness AND much better corner sharpness than the Sigma 1.4 even with the Sigma stopped down to f/2.8:
Aperture isn't everything, especially when it comes at the expense of edge-to-edge sharpness.
This is about the S1.4 vs the C1.4. From what I understand, the Siggy is better. Apples 'n' apples. The 35 IS is a pear
Obviously, a few people aren't even reading the thread. The OP is asking about the IS primes. That means the 35 f/2 IS. Not the 35 1.4 with no IS. So it is actually you that are confused.
The one poster made a comment about the Sigma 1.4 being half the Canon. But the thread wasn't talking about the 1.4 Canon.
I'm not confused, just trying to clarify earlier misinterpretation (but obviously it's not helping). Of course this is about the IS primes, as the subject suggests
So please discuss the 'pears' from now on and leave the 'apples' be
