Real review, no BS. Great images, all around!...I do not own this lens but have considered it...although to be honest what has put me off on it is the focus issues that I have read about online. I know that any lens is difficult to focus at f/1.4..but I am thinking that Justin's repeated comments about how he has difficulty focusing this lens but that it is all him, not the lens, leads me also to believe that it may not be all Justin's fault!? :-) Clearly he is a VERY competent photographer.
I just took delivery of a Sigma 35mm f.1.4 yesterday and am leaving for the weekend to give it a run thru...hopefully it is as good as promised. If Sigma stays true to their word about producing more Art lenses at this caliber, the Canon 24mm f/1.4 could become a footnote for this photographer, if Sigma can make us one as good and reasonably-priced as the 35mm???..oh..and the lens hood on the Sigma is IMPRESSIVELY secure. (the only thing that Sigma did wrong so far, was they included a zippered toaster cozy for the lens instead of cool, simple lens pouch...
?? LOL..that thing is staying in the box!). I hope they can deliver more lenses like this.
