I recently bought the Canon 35L as I wanted something wider for my trip to Nepal but I didn't want to go for the sigma because it's still a new lens and there could still be some issues that could arise and I wanted something I could rely on!

So far I have absolutely nothing bad to say about the lens, beautiful colors and perfectly contrasty! Snappy and accurate focus too even on my 5D2! Mind you the Sigma does seem ALOT more appealing especially after the weight that's been lifted from my wallet!

Just thought i'd add my two cents

I sure like the looks of the corners on the DigitalPicture tests

I'm waiting for the Sigma lens and  test it out on a d800,  Im going on a long  work trip  in Vietnam,Kambodja and Laos in march and decided to have Nikon gears with me this time instead of Canon. First time since 2006 I will rely on Nikon and maybe also a Sigma 35mm. Compared to Nikon 35/1,4  and Canon 35/1, 4,  all tests  looks  stunning good so far .

Any thoughts on the sealing on the Sigma?
Also, can anyone point me towards a serious forum and/or site that deals with Video DSLR?
I don't really need IS for stills much, but seeing as it can be a KILLER feature for handheld video , I am very interested in the IS performance of the new Sigma as well as the canon lineup and the Tamron 24-70.

I think you will be impressed by the Sigma. I haven't found a weakness yet. It's sharp across the frame at all aperatures, fast and accurate AF and I haven't even gotten it to flare so far. I think the bokeh issue is silly and subjective. Is March the rainy season? I mention this because the fit and finish of the lens makes it appear to be weather sealed, but, for some reason sigma didn't put a gasket at the lens mount...
