Canon 35L on top, Sigma 35 on bottom.... do not like the onion ringing.. outside of that its a great lens. I did these shots last night.
I don't find the "onion" objectionable here. Plus these discs would be much smaller in an actual real world shot.
I am not sure why the focus has been so much on this particular scenario which in real life will show up in a tiny fraction of the the shots. I am more interested in a comparison of the bokeh quality with somewhat busy backgrounds like trees etc.
Quite a few people including myself use fast glass in low light situations at night either outdoors or in an interior where a lot of times you have points of light outside the plane of focus. In fact, its something I look for and desire to have because defocused points of light look cool and help give some context and ambiance to an image.
I don't mind the onion on either lens becuase generally the highlite isn't big enough to notice it. What does bother me is the football shapes. In this picture the canon stays nice and round while siggy becomes rather jagged and football shaped. Keep in mind tho, once the Canon is stopped down at all there goes your round highlites because it doesn't have circular aperature.
I am considering purchasing the new 35 2.0 IS, has circular aperature, IS, probably nice vignetting from 2.0. Could be a really nice lens.
