Do you guys think or have any secret info regarding the new 35mm and if canon is speeding up their process to release, since everybody is leaning towards sigma since the new 35 and 50mms A by Sigma?
CR is probably the wrong place to look for secret info regards Canon's release schedule, if your looking for opinions, biased or otherwise, right place.
I have both the Canon 35f/1.4 & the Art 35f/1.4, both have their plusses, the Canon for straight up Bokeh is unbeatable, this Lens just renders background way better than the Art, colour rendition is better as well.
But for sharpness the Art is clearly a winner, so I tend to use the Art for general street scenes, the Canon for Portrait & Landscape Images.
I've had very few OOF Images with the Canon 35f/1.4, the Art 35f/1.4 is a different story, it does have more issues with AF than the Canon, I tend to use the Art with Manual Focus where possible.
I won't buy another Sigma Lens based on the 35 Art & the reports regards the 50 Art, I'll live in hope that Canon & Zeiss can come to some sort of arrangement regards licensing AF, Zeiss lenses on a Canon Body that has AF ?? Heaven in a lens.
Not sure what numbers Canon have sold on the 35f/1.4, but I'm reasonably sure the numbers "Toast" the numbers of Sigma 35Art lenses sold to date, and when Canon release a 35f/1.4 II, it'll "Re Toast" Sigma's sales, see, biased opinion
