Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM

<< < (15/23) > >>

I just got is lens, opened it 2 days before Christmas.  I am blown away.  It is sharp sharp, and lots of good contrast and color. I really like the 35mm field of view too; a lot more than I even thought I would.

Made one dummy error though. I was doing the post processing on my kids opening the gifts from Santa and I noticed some hellacious vignetting in top right and lower left. I was thinking I'd made a big mistake, and thinking how I might have trouble returning it because I got it grey market for $760. Then I thought about the lens hood. Sure enough I had not screwed it on all the way, and the longer petals were on those 2 corners, and not on the top and bottom like they are supposed to be. Problem solved. Duh.

Some fun Christmas morning shots.

The bokeh is a bit unsettling in this one, but quite possible it would have been no matter what lens was used.  These are all very nice work!  Do you ever have any issues with autofocus accuracy, or any other problems Sigma is constantly slammed for?  (I'm a sigma fan...)

Handheld, 1/30 sec, f/ 2.5, 2500 iso, 5D MkII. This is a stunning lens for low-light street photography :)
