First off, I'm a new member and I don't see any buttons to start a new thread so I'll post my question in this thread.
I recently bought a Sigma 35mm 1.4. It's been great so far but i had a question about sharpness. I've been pixel peeping too much and have become obsessed with making sure my "copy" is good. Reading some negativity on the lens online made me paranoid. I just need a second opinion on whether my images are as sharp as this lens should produce. Focusing up close, the lens seems to be super sharp. When I have a further subject, it loses some detail, but im assuming this is because of resolution and megapixels? Other than sharpness, the lens isn't too great at focusing. When auto focusing at the wall right in the center from pretty close, it would miss over half the time. But it seemed to miss in the same way. Perhaps getting it calibrated at a shop will help?
Here are the images. They were shot on a 60D
They are all shot at f1.4 except for the last which is 2.8.
What do you guys think. I feel like other people are getting sharper images from further subjects. Thanks!
