i'm considering to buy some new fast prime lenses for my 5D III
However Canon has left behind their L primes update, since there is no new 35L 50L 85L 135L replacements, and the 24L II isn't quite the sharpest lens wide open.
It seems Canon drop the weight on 24-70 2.8 II and 70-200 2.8 IS II where these two are far the best zoom lenses i've ever used. I trust them completely at 2.8 and i get nailed focus pictures without selling me, where as a professional that means everything.
However the need for faster glass is imminent
These sigmas ART 35 and 50 seems promising.
After testing the 35A the only thing that stops me is the focus accuracy. (actually it was good in this 35A but i had bad experiences with sigma before)
However Sigma glass is perfect. no CA (damn these EF 50 1.4 and EF 85 1.8 are killing me) , sharp wide open, what else to ask for?
I haven't tested the 50A yet but i know it will be top notch like the 35A i've tested
Meanwhile after seeing thishttp://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/ISO-12233-Sample-Crops.aspx?Lens=403&Camera=453&Sample=0&FLI=0&API=1&LensComp=941&CameraComp=453&SampleComp=0&FLIComp=0&APIComp=0
I was wondering why should somebody buy the 50L today.
Not a wise choice in terms of quality and price.
Anyway, is there any word out about new L primes?
maybe next year? or should i move along buying the 35A and 50A since the current 35L and 50L is out of the question since they are quite expensive and old.
