Darn the one I really wanted to see at full size, the 24mm shot, is the only one they decided to only post at a major downscale....

Downscale...or crop?  If the latter, it would minimize barrel distortion at the wide end.  Would Canon deceive us like that?   :-X

Downscale. Way too sharp for that be a 100% crop and if that actually was just a crop the distortion would be the horror story of the century hah.  ;D :o

Seems bizarre to me that they turn sharpening way off, use in cam jpg and set NR to high for an ISO400 shot.... to demonstrate a lens! People want to see sharpness and contrast and color what good just showing they wax-look processed model shot?

Which people - you did a survey? And international tastes might be different, the Canon (a Japanese company) shots remind me of the Japanese 6d amateur samples that are on flickr - way too much noise reduction and "wax look", but maybe more Japanese people like it this way?

And not all lens buyers are gearheads, they see a "nice" picture and think "I want to have this lens so I can take such a nice picture, too" no matter how the corner sharpness is.

They are awesome deep fried. This year will be a frozen one. I just can't decide whether to shoot it straight or use an ND filter for that "artsy" look :)

I'm not impressed with the 24-70 images at all..
The distortion looks bad…even at 70mm, the model's face looks really weird..
There is something kind of strange about her face...
however, those 35mm pictures look pretty nice. I'm not sure if i'd pay 900 for this lens, especially given it's an f2, but the pictures were nice.
Anyone know where those 35mm pictures were taken? I think I really just liked the location.

Pretty sure that's the main square (Jemaa el-Fna) and the surrounding souks in Marrakech, Morocco. Crazy place!! Second half of this post if you're interested: http://double-take-photography.com/2011/03/20/something-a-lil-bit-different/

Surely doesn't look that sharp @f/5.6 - which is impressive (in the most negative way).

Looks like they set sharpness at 0 and NR on High even though the model looks to have been shot at low ISO!

The sharpness was set to +2, says in DPP if you download the file. Very impressive...

Sigma 35/1.4 seems definitely worth checking out:

Off-topic a bit, but is the new sigma meant to be weather sealed?

Could someone explain how come the third "macro" image shot with the new EF 24-70mm 4 L IS USM shows "80mm" as the actual focal length in EXIF data...? (Shot with an EOS 5D Mark III) ... Maybe the "Macro" Mode on the lens is achieved by such an internal change in the optical construction of the lens...

Thanks in advance.

That's really strange, but the most likely explanation is that it's a beta lens that reported the wrong focal length ... or they were using a tc to get more working distance: 57mm * 1.4 = 80mm ... the bad iq of the macro shot would certainly allow for the latter possibility.

That sigmas sharpness wide-open looks very impressive. I also like the color rendering a lot. Not so sure about the bokeh on it, however. It's just something about it that I don't like.  The transition is just not as smooth as what I like, but, to be fair, a lot of the shots were under similar conditions.   I really, really like that there are a lot of shots taken wide-open. I'm not crazy about seeing a lot of stopped down shots on reviews or tests of large aperture primes. The reality is is that the majority of shots taken with those lens will be taken with a larger aperture.  I'm very anxiously awaiting the actual reviews of both the Sigma and the Canon 35.

I don't think it is (definitely could be wrong on this one).  Sigma puts the new 35 f/1.4 under the "art" category, not the "sport".  I think I saw somewhere that only the sport lenses will receive weathersealing.

No, only the S (Sports) series lenses will be weather sealed.
