Just get the Canon's.

I've got a 12mm & 25mm and it works 100%

I've never used the Kenko's so can't comment on those but it does seem that value for money is a factor.
I have Canon and my son has Kenko. Kenko feels a bit less solid, but I doubt you´ll run into problems. If you plan to use heavier lenses, I´d feel more comfortable with Canon though.

Good to see someone posting with this lens again. Looking forward to many more Jim! (also good to see that someone competes with me on cat images ;))

I have not used it much this summer, but I did (unsuccessfully) hunt puffins on a far western island in the north of Norway. No birds, but an unusual use of the lens, to shoot a sunset. This is over the dark and beautiful profile of the island Træna. Beyond that, there is nothing but water until you hit Greenland. The cliff to the right is a good climb and it is 338m high.

5DIII, 1/160s (handheld), f5.0, ISO2000

Heading to Japan for 4 weeks next month, preparing myself by looking at Images taken last time in that Totally Beautiful Country.

1Dx & 200f/2, shot @ f/4 (no idea why), 1/200th ISO400
f/4 worked just fine as far as I can see.

Enjoy your trip. Japan is something different, no matter what you compare it to. I wish I had the opportunity to do the same.

I´ll do my best, trying to live with the Otus ;)

I gave up on both the 35 and 50 Art lenses. The 50 is sold and the 35 will go as soon as I get a reasonable bid. With the AF issues I have had with both, it will be a loooong time before I buy a Sigma again ... A pity though, considering the excellent optical performance of both lenses.

I´ll pick up mine this afternoon. Crossing my fingers that it is as good as I´m hoping and most reviews seem to conclude. I get the impression from your posts that some of the issues I had with the 16-35 f2.8L II is well taken care of. Hope to find time to play with it this weekend.

It seems like the stamp sized images are back to normal size again :)

This is something I found in a garden, while we were waiting for a local ferry up the north coast of Norway. If you don´t have a china vase, use what china you have  8)

Properly shot with the Otus  :P 1/3200s, f2.0, ISO200, CPL!
Eldar, I mean this with all due respect - that is the crappiest photo you have taken with the Otus  :P ;) :P
;D

The toughest part is hitting that little M.fn button next to the primary dial...there is probably a more accessible place for that button. But once it's pressed, actually selecting the AF point is not difficult at all.
I use the top right button at the back

My image posts suddenly looks stamp size, whereas the Flikr-posts appear normal. Does anyone know why?

To shoot these little buggers is a rather stressful activity. Whenever you have them in focus, they fly off to somewhere else ...

Sounds like My Boys.

But love the Image, almost Disneyesque, Spell check tells me that's either not a word, or I've spelt it wrong.

A different take on the Surf shots Lemmy, but lovely just the same.
Thanks Edward, My first association, when I got the image on the monitor, was Tinkerbell, so Disneyesque fits the bill and should clearly be a new word in the dictionary :)

There are some convincing reviews out there. TDP's ISO charts were the final drop. I think I have to start selling something ... ::)

It´s on its way ...
