So today I went down to the bank, extended my overdraft and purchased the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art lens on the interweb for £620 next day delivery. All being well it should be delivered before noon tomorrow (friday)
The reason I bought it is that I want to shoot a wedding on saturday with it
obviously I'm going to play with it all friday afternoon and evening (I'm using a 5Diii) but I probably wont work out all the little quirks... anyone that has the lens, is there anything I need to be aware of?
I normally shoot 90% of the day with a 50mm 1.4 set at f2.2ish but I'm guessing the 35mm 1.4 set at 2.2 will be a little more forgiving on the DOF and a little less bokeh?
Has anyone had problems with focussing and needed a little AFMA???
I have the 28mm 1.8 too but that's a little too wide for me on a full frame when doing environmental portraiture. I find I make the odd little mistake with regards to chopping off of the extremities of limbs with the 50mm when it's all action go and I don't really have time to get the legs going for some proper framing.
so yeah, any oddities with this little beast??
