| p.2 #2 · New Sigma 35mm f/1.4 and two Tamron lenses! |
I can't believe this Sigma 35 is priced so close to the new Canon 35/2.0. I'm currently rocking the Sigma 50/1.4 as my main lens. Being redesigned, I expect it to be superior to that by far...
I'll be really REALLY interested in a comparison of the 35s (obviously the Canon won't be available for a while), but one of these just might be my next purchase.
1 stop faster but no OS.
Unless the canon is a dog (I doubt) then I think I'd choose the canon
But the sigma does look nice.
Also canon ring USM is in general faster than the sigma HSM (and yes I do own and have owned a couple of sigma HSM )
But I will say the new programable lens mount thing may give other advantages.
Also it's been mentioned in another thread , but the 2 Tamron lenses are a tad close to the canon versions also
The macro is only 200 bucks under the 100L and the zoom is about 600 less than the king of 70-200's .
I bet the gap gets much wider than that after a year or 2 ownership as 3rd party lenses in general loose much more
Lets hope street prices are a fair bit less
