Thanks guys for the sage advice. I am going to do exactly what you have recommended, after I get better.

Not sure what level or type of book you are considering, art, composition, technique, lighting?
Then, if you want to challenge yourself, pick up Susan Sontag's On Photography and Roland Barthe's Camera Lucida ...
Each can be read over and over again and each time you will learn something new. And, not a single one talks about f-stops, ISO, noise, bokeh, crop factor, or any of the other drivel that bogs people down. They are all about vision and understanding this fascinating and addictive craft.
My impression is quite good regarding the Sigma 35 ...
I played with mine some more today. With the lens mounted to my powered up 5D MK II, I pushed the barrel of the lens all the way back, and did a lot of other screwy things, but it kept on working perfectly. Apparently not all of them have the issue, or it is particular to certain camera bodies.
