"Only a red-ring fanboy will buy this"

I have tested the Siggy and the 35 L has been the holy grail absolute killer go to lens for a VERY long time and where it counts the most for me will always be AF and the L destroys the Siggy. Not
Even close.

So when the 35 L II comes out it will most likely be the best focusing 1.4 lens of
All times... Combine that with weather sealing and I'm buying!


I own a lot of red-ringed glass...but I keep my mind open to other products that can serve my needs as well, and maybe save me some money. Canon has its strengths and it's weaknesses. Lately the pricing of some of their products has become ridiculous, in my opinion.
My Sigma focuses fantastically and is adjustable via the dock. No problem there.
As far as a 35mm f/1.4 II goes.....well, I DID say red-ring fanboys! :-)

The current Canon L does have a LOT of room for improvement...so maybe the new patent will attend to the issues...but it will not attend to the price of the mkII(to be sure).

Ditto.

I won't be able to do a proper job with a below par AF of the S35 - investing in the Canon version makes sense for what I need it for.

It's cost vs value for money debate - it may be relatively expensive to buy but does it provide good value for one's needs? For me the answer is Yes!
