You just said it: if you own one excellent lens, it's hard to accept lesser results.Class A - you buy a 1.4 lens, you should expect reliable results AT 1.4. The sigma just doesn't offer that reliability to the same frequency as does the Canon.
yes ...completely agree
I had 35L mk 1, and then sigma ..loved em both...each an improvement over the previous..
now my 35L mk 2 is as good as any of the best Canon lenses... imo
the bokeh is lovely...as demonstrated above....
the lens is so good and 35mm being my fav angle...
I dont want to take it off the camera..
I wish I had a 5DmkIII that had the spotmeter linked to focus, exp comp in manual , and LIGHTED focus points in servo....and a few more features..
if so...... then I would have a smaller footprint.... if I had that.. I would superglue the 35L II to the body
and call it a perfect system...
the 1dx2 is wonderful... but bulges in my jeans pocket ...a little bit....ha
AND to stir-up old wounds again..
the 135 f2 mk II I.S. with ~1.5 feet min focus distance....
would be quite nice to pair with the 35L II
for now I'll add my 14L II.... making ..... 14mm, 35mm and 135mm a near-complete system
I would be willing to give up f2.8 ... for f4
maybe use an 11-24 Canon or 12 24 Sigma ...to replace the 14mm ..
my point is...
they NOW all have to rise to the 35L II standards....I am spoiled!!
