I just sold my 35 L today, and no, I will not replace it with a siggy, I have something else in mind.  8)


Pray tell.  Zeiss 35 f/1.4 Distagon perhaps?

Nope, it was the 200 f2.0 L  :) and besides the fact the AF was pretty hopeless and it suddenly was full of sand and dust and the focusing ring made a grinding sound and it's now off on repair, it's the best lens by very far, I have ever used.
1dx, 17-40 L, 24-70 L II, 85 L II, 200 f2.0 L

well , let us then  make a double blind test and you tell me which pictures comes  from Canon 35/1,4

Around here the Canon 35mm f/1.4 L costs 5,900 NIS, and the Sigma costs 3,600 NIS. so I could save ~40% and get the same image quality? Sweet...

Some will need the weather sealing, but others could use the different to buy another lens, say an EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM.

The siggi and Canon 35 f1.4 are not the same and never will be. They have different renderings and bokeh. Colour and contrast are different too...as is flare control and AF competency. Get a Siggi 35mm on it's own merits, but don't kid your self it's a 35L clone, it's not. There is a beauty in the 35L which only comes out in the pictures it produces. Most skilled photographers who regularly use one fall in love with this lens for that very reason.

I am not very skilled but I still love my 35L. There's something about it.
