The downloads do not tell you what lens was used. I can list the jpegs numbers if needed but the difference is always very obvious. There are a few bokeh comparisons in there that are already cropped.

8) SIGMA AF is very inconsistent on my 5D MK III but stellar on the 7D M MKII. It needed a +10 AFMA on both cameras.

Ironically, mine is simply useless on my 7D MkII and nearly flawless on the 6D and whenever I use a 5D.

I got my third copy of this lens a couple of weeks back. Never saw that coming, but the Norwegian distributor had a 30% discount for a few days, which was to tempting to pass. I have now tried it on the new 5DSR for awhile and (did not believe I was going to say this) it performs just fine ...

In servo mode, shot wide open, I still get lots of weird results, but in One-shot, with a single focusing point, it nails it pretty much every time. I still have a hard time trusting it, so no pictures beyond pure testing so far. I am going on a 2 week trip on the west coast, starting on Saturday and that will be the baptising for real shooting.

Fingers crossed ...

4)is about 1 full stop darker than the 50L when both are wide open (50L at 1.2 vs SIGMA at 1.2)

Hmmmmm....maybe I'll return my Sigma 1.4 Art too so they will send me an f/1.2 like you received......?????

I think he compares t-stop value.
