How hard would it have been to show the distance scale while doing a few focusing searches? To give a slight idea of speed again the 50 L for example.

"It looks to be the same body inside" wow...

That was worthless.  I did enjoy watching it though.  Reminds me of porn.

"It's taped up so I can't take any pictures with it...", but they don't seem to have any issue with you popping the lens off and possibly attaching it to your body.  Seem rather easy to do a quick lens swap and get some sample images that way.

Regardless of Matt's errors at least we get to see the lens in comparison to the 35 1.4 which is what I was wondering. It gives me an idea of how it will look on a 5D.

Why is it in black and white though??

Yeah, but do you really want to encourage someone to betray the trust of Sigma... and if you are caught... then Sigma will certainly black ball you and probably every other company who knows you are a liar.  Integrity and one's reputation... take quite a bit to build... takes very little to destroy.
