Nice.  That's one lens I haven't shot, although between the 85mm f/1.8, the 100L, and the 135L already in my bag, I probably won't be getting it.  Still, I've heard nothing but good about it.

It is awesome. :) Sharp wide open, creamy bokeh, very good corrected and the autofocus is superfast! But if I had the 100L and 135L i wouldn't bother buying it neither.  ::)

the sigma 35mm @ f1.4.... 5D3
I sold my 35L (which I liked)  and bought this lens

////////////////////////////
first shot:
daughter in-focus
the woman(mother) - on the left - in the background is a good example of a nice bokeh quality - to my eye...
the guy in right corner is pretty nice treatment too


of course the quality varies  with differing back ground distance and foreground focus distance
and of course different busy shapes too....  the sigma is not tops...but pretty good IMO

this just seems to be an ideal combo for the sigma 35......

second shot:
different distances...plus the stove-hood on left ...the lines start to get slightly busy..  the 85L would likely handle that differently
I believe...all this is pretty subjective...

//////////////////

lots of nice examples in this post
people here have really nice compositional ideas too...


I would say the 35 sigma and then - either - the 135L or 85L canon are a great pair..

the sigma is sharp wide open, has minimal distortion and chromatics,
 is built solidly and focuses accurately and quickly .... it is a wonderful lens -  IMO

thanks
TOM

Two different large-aperture / bokehish images.
Concrete objects but sort of abstract results:
 1) a simple kitchen-tool
 2) small streams of water flowing on a window with highlights in background

Both with Canon 450D.
1) with 50mm 1.4, f/2.0
2) with 70-200 4.0 IS, f/5.6
Keen amateur. Current kit: Canon 6D since April 2013. 24-105 f/4, 70-200 f/4 IS, 50mm f/1.4, 100 macro f/2.8 L IS, 1.4x II TC, 16-35 f/2.8 (I), Tamron 150-600mm. Canon 420 EX flash.

A shot I took during my wedding in Kyoto a couple of years ago. Even on my old 550D, the 100mm L lens got some cracking shots.
