So the sigma was shot at f/1.4 and Canon shot at f/1.2?
Even if the shooter moved a little, there seems like a huge difference in focal length

FWIW, I brought the 35/1.4L last year, and didn't get any keepers from the fireside stories, either.
35 or 50mm is what I like to have.
I'm giving it a go, ordered the a7r Body with the Zeiss 35 & 55.
the Nikon rumor is extremely exciting. Nikon's current sensors are pretty awesome, and having the 16mp D4 sensor in a small size would be a real gift from Nikon, especially if it is a reasonable price!
Full size photos taken with the D800 here:
The wide open ones at ISO 400 look too fuzzy, with strong NR. Overall, I like the rendering but I would have preferred to see wide open shots at ISO 100 as well.
Looks like mini 1D X
Attach EF adapter and 85L II to it, you wouldn't be able to tell the diff.
A bulky lens on a tiny body, that's how you kill the primary purpose of mirrorless.
I don't give a dam about DR(current 5D III & 1D X are fine), I bought A7 for one reason: 35mm sensor in tiny body so I can carry around.
my feeling is that the people that are heavily invested in the Canon or Nikon ecosystem will not be quick to jump ship as most of us aren't looking to manually focus (for all intents and purposes) all of our glass. This is not to say there are not some people that would be completely fine with this.
Regardless, if the price comes down a bit, I may not be able to resist just picking one up to have that oh so sweet 36 mp sensor in my bag as I could still put that to good use in some instances.
I use the 90EX on 5D3 all the time, but it's only useful as optical trigger for off-camera speedlites, e.g. my 580EX II. In that role, the 90EX is great, when I have a 580EX II +/- modifier on top of chair/table or hand-held with my left arm, etc.
You might want to try a pair of Yongnuo 622s instead. Full functionality, no line of sight requirement/better range and AF assist. They're pretty sweet for $78.
