for about the same price as Canon's new 35/2? Wow If its any good, that'll be fantastic. Competition is good. USB dock, but no fold out keyboard and monitor?  :o

Maybe a little on the pricey side for a Sigma prime, but the USB port is intriguing. It'd be cool if it solved some of the AF issues without having to send the lens in for service. Is this feature new? Haven't seen it before.

I've been pining for a 35mm prime for a long while now.  The 35L put me off because of cost and bulk.  The old 35/2 just seemed too dated in too many ways.  Now there are two new options: this sigma, and the new EF 35/2 IS.  Similar price - high but doable.  Sigma is significantly bulkier (twice the weight, a bit longer).  Sigma has f/1.4, but Canon has IS.  Tough decision.

I thought the reasons we buy prime lenses: sharp and bigger aperture(faster shutter speed)

"IS"....ummm I'm not sure.
