I finally got one. Murphy's Camera in Lexington, KY has one left in stock for Nikon. Ask for Greg if you call. He was really helpful.

Sorry for the cross post, but I was hoping that someone else that owns this lens could check out my other thread and possibly help me with something:

^ Question: how many salable shots (over the years) using a 35 with far left/right focus point from 3' Thought so.

Thanks Monkey, very helpful!

To answer your question, a lot. my compositions very often focus on something in the close foreground on one side of the frame, and even more so when shooting wide.

But it doesn't matter, as stated above, the behavior is the same at 6 and 10 feet.

Coming from someone who owns this lens and a full frame camera, and who could have easily helped by reporting your results with your outer points, your answer is a bit frustrating.

Finished another 2 photo shoots where I shot with only the Sigma 35 and I loved the results, so did the customer. I added more sample shots from recent shoots and couple sharpness test shots with links to the full size JPEGs for anyone interested. Im not trying to promote my page, just trying to help you guys out that are considering dropping close to a G on this lens.

Danger: At times turning sharpening down or off may be necessary.

Here's the lens more or less at MFD:



100% crop, zero sharpening in LR4/and on output:


100% crop with my standard sharpening settings for the D800:


Dentists may recognize this weapon (@f/2, handheld waiting for numbing to set in...):

Ya, your such a helpful guy. How do you help people that have problems? Ohh ya, that's right. You tell them there is no problem! . What a joke. Once again, using your post count to pretend your above everyone else. If people can't see the true you because of your post count, then I feel sorry for them.
