Please watch this...I feel the same way as this very responsible reviewer. He pretty much covers everything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OuN1ywuufg"my own needs revolve more around the overall "look and feel" and color than sheer sharpness."
Can you elaborate on this statement....it is kind of nebulous.
I also saw that video, and while I'd prefer the 35A to the 35L, the video looks biased from the beginning.
The minute he talks about liberal use of plastic in the Canon and how that still didn't help keep the price down it was clear which one he preferred.
Reviews should be objective, leaving the viewer to draw his conclusions based on the data provided.
Well...I think that the reviewer brings up a lot of valid points. No lens is prefect...but the reviewer was very detail oriented, but not outright "scientific" (thank God). It's possible that he was biased but some of what he presents is difficult to ignore, I think....anyway...I have been extremely happy with my 35mm Art as most are who own it and I have not had any issues with the focus and it seems that just guys with red-line fever (not that there is anything wrong with "L" glass in general), have some imaginary data on this "drifting focus" problem that I have not experienced. Has anyone that owns the lens had an issue with focusing?
?? Its certainly possible.
At any rate I think that SOON we should see some real tests on the new 50mm and really know what the price is. (I wish that Sigma had not said that they are aiming at the Otus...it just sets them up for target practice....LOL!).
