if you buy a sigma buy it from a bricks and mortar store you can take it back to and let them send it in to have it recalibrated if it needs it, i love my 85mm now it's all sorted out

Seems to me to have been over sharpened
That, or the detail is simply overpowering. Probably a combination of both rendering a disgusting photo of a beautiful woman.
A few more pictures like that showing the D800 capabilities and the 5DIII will be the best seller
May be that will be 5D3's marketing line: we render soft images, so your models' faces will appear silky smooth!
Look at her lower lips area at 100% This camera is not meant for taking portraits of women.
An interesting development tonight. I have been working at +6 all day on my 50 1.2 and been pretty happy, thought I might see a bit of front focus this evening, set back to 0 and everything is totally spot on. Will check tomorrow once the sun comes up if it is the lighting or if it just needed a bit of working in as the lens and body are brand new (makes no sense, I know).yes its wierd but this is my feeling that the AF is all over the place i had some lenses at -15 to plus 10 and back to 0
I've been rocking a 5DC since launch, and have never been happy about having to manually focus on anything outside of the center cross AF point with pretty much any of my fast primes wide open (e.g. 50L, 85L II, 135L).
The high precision, MF screen helps and is a life saver, but it's become a crutch as I've come rely on that to validate all focussing. That said, the new 5D III does not have user replaceable screens allowing for proper DOF previews for lenses faster than 2.8
For folks shooting primarily fast primes with their 5D III, how are you coping with this? Is the AF capable enough so that focus points on the edges are accurate down to f1.2?
Focus and recompose is not an option for me. The focal plane is in the millimeters at f1.2 for tighter portraits
I FEEL YOUR PAIN!
My 5Dc with the EG-S Screen is my Bread and Butter Portrait money maker!!! The New 5D3 doesnt have changeable focus screen's! I may just get a 5D2 because of that reason.
I Love my primes and wouldn't change it for just a new body.
Looks great. What lens are you using?exif data says 16-35 f2.8 II
My 24L mk2, 35L, 85 1.8, and 200/2 are all spot on, my 50 1.2L is performing well too, albeit not quite as well as my other primes, but the 50 1.2L is never perfect. I'm coming from a 50D to add some perspective.
*shooting all wide open of course.
Hot damn, that's tack sharp. Maybe there's hope I'll get a good copy
Yes, those JPEGS are straight out of camera.ok cool can i ask what your camera settings were relating to picture profile NR etc

I know there is an issue with a DPP setting that causes images to lose detail...there is an easy workaround...Regardless, i've noticed several people still complaining about sharpness even when using ACR6.7, converted to DNG and imported to LR4...but I just don't see it, maybe I have low standards?that looks considerably sharper than what is coming out of mine. Thats it mines going back today
DNG Converter to LR4,
EF24-105L f/4.0, 1/250, ISO 100, handheld on a very fidgety subject, %100 crop:
tell me about it last time i had mine sent in to clean iron ore out of the focus ring cost me $170How did you get iron ore in the lens - what environment were you shooting in to have that happen? A mine?
mind you, me, the camera and lens got completely covered in mud so i'm not suprised a little made it through the seals
