I agree that the price is fantastic, but how many folks here are confident enough in terms of Sigma's AF speed and accuracy to purchase this pre-order?  I ask this in all seriousness, I'm curious to see especially the responses of folks who own the newer Sigma lenses.  I sold all of mine 3 years ago after not enjoying hit/miss rate very much.

my 70-200 f/2.8 OS has a good autofocus hit rate...i have to audjust a bit with mcrofus adj on 50D a +6...with the old 70-200 f/2.8 ii i had to psuh to a +15.

the speed is slower than canon, also because they dont provide a limiter, but i dont think thet af speed of 35mm will be much lower than canon equivalent.

i tought they provide software to adjust focus also on camera that doesnt have mfa... am i wrong? that's a very nice option; never seen on any lens from other manufacturers

Won't be pre-ordering, but will definitely be renting it for a wedding sometime next year for sure. I rented the 85 1.4 and was pretty impressed by it. It's hard to tell how much of the keeper rate was due to my own technique and what was the lenses fault but overall I thought it did pretty good as long there wasn't a huge change in the subjects position.

One UK online retailer has come out early with a price on the Sigma 35mm, of £599. For comparison, that is slightly less than the Sigma 85mm f/1.4.

I like the Price. If its any good, I will Buy one ASAP. I tend not to buy first gen products immediately.
