Wait....Sigma has yet another revision of the body of this lens? Now it incorporates almost shiny pieces of plastic? Also the hood went away from the petal design? This is the third different look this lens has had...
Did you watch the video? Sigma has a 30mm f/1.4 for crop sensor bodies that the reviewer is comparing the new 35mm f/1.4 to. They are completely different lenses.
Of course I watched the video. If you are familiar with the siggy 30mm then you would know that the one he reviewed has a different hood and a different finish then what I am use to. There was a change about 1-2 years ago that changed from a sparkly matte finish to a satin plastic finish. The one he reviewed has almost glossy segments and a non-petal hood.
This is the new version belonging to the "Art" line.
That's what I was looking for. I remember reading that they were going to update the 30mm when they announced the 35mm but I guess I didn't realized it was going to be this quick. Has it been confirmed that they are any different besides the cosmetics and the USB dock?
