Sounds attractive! I hope its quality beats the Samyang.

Remember this is a FF lens, if you are on APS you can get the 30/1.4 for less money, a lens I am happy with.

This new lens comes with the tune-it-yourself possibility. I am looking forward to hear about experiences. Seems to me that new higher-res cameras can benefit greatly from this, AND that it offers new scope for screwing things up. I am expecting lots of posts.

Wow, sigma has a lense that does not look like it was made for random parts laying in a junk bin?

The lens is nice looking my hope it is as good as there 85 if that's the case it will be a winner.

This could be another hit for Sigma! The Nikon 35mm f/1.4 is $700 more and the Nikon 28mm f/1.8 is too wide for some users, so I think this will slot in between them quite nicely.

Good price. I actually like the look of their 50mm and 85mm lenses better than this one. Hope it performs just as good or better

I've been waiting/hoping/dreaming for something better/newer than the old Nikon 35/2 AF-D, and cheaper than the Nikon 35/1.4G

Guess I'll have to check it out! I'm very happy with my Sigma 85/1.4, as well as all the other Sigma lenses I've owned. I have great expectations for this new lens as well.

The USB lens adjustment gadget is VERY much welcomed, and I'm anxious to get my hands on one!

Both BIG wins for Sigma!

Ok. Very tempted. Don't have money right now, but very, very tempted. 35 is my favorite FL...

I once have the 30 1.4, great for people shots, horrible for landscape (both stop down or wide open for "starry night" kind landscape)

Did Sigma ever release sample pictures taken with this lens yet? I would love to place a preorder on it but I am a little worried about the new branding scheme they are toying with.

Sigma has samples on their site. I'm impressed and will order one.

Finally! One company hasn't lost their mind when it comes to pricing. I love the Sigma 85 and 50, this one will be a must buy.

The only thing is I wish it had a weather seal, other than that, its perfect.

The optional USB dock is also interesting:

Newly developed “USB DOCK” exclusively for new product lines

Based on these new lines, we have developed special software (SIGMA Optimization Pro) that can update the lens firmware and adjust parameters such as focus.

The samples sure look good, heh. It's on SD1 so it won't show FF corners but heh...if it's sharp in the center at 1.4 on the SD1, it'll be sharp on the D800, that's for sure.

This looks like a great lens. I wasn't really impressed with the AF on the NIkon, so I will be interested in seeing how well the Sigma works out. I love my Sigma 85 1.4, so this would be great to pick up at an affordable price!

Looks very very interesting. Hope their QC is as good as they are hyping it to be on this lens.

"Every 35mm F1.4 DG HSM will be checked using Sigma’s own MTF measuring system, “A1,” as will all new lenses under the Global vision categories. This system uses 46-megapixel Foveon direct image sensors to pick up previously undetectable high-frequency details for quality control inspections."

I found this interesting, I wonder how much quality control they decided to step up. When the Sigma 50 came out, I went through 5 lenses before finding one worth keeping. (then ended up selling it a month later, )
