Starting to feel more comfortable with this lens, more than I was last week using it. This lens is sharp wide open! BUY IT IF YOU DON'T HAVE A 35 YET

Nice shots, Phil! I would say something about 3D, but I think that would be too risky. Or risqué.

I am digging the output from this lens... Centrally sharp w/ slightly meh corners suits me just fine for a fast prime. Thinking about trading 35L in.

Well Phil, I must say these are the nicest shots I have seen out of the lens to this point. Thanks for posting. Also, is this the best thread to see examples from this lens? Is there another dedicated thread somewhere? Thanks.

I use the Samyang 35 a lot with a 5DMkII and don't see any softness in the center.
I have done a FF pattern/resolution test & it's pretty good.

It looks like Sigma has finally built a lens worthy of being called Pro quality. While I wouldn't trade an L lens for a Sigma, after careful review I would recommend it for people in the market for a high quality lens at a reasonable price.

My only concern is whether or not Sigma is able to keep the quality up as production increases. They claim to have a new QA process but the retailers haven't seen any changes in the rate of returns on Sigma lenses.

As an Engineer, I love the concept of being able to alter the software driving this lens. I may just pick one up to play with.

Thanks Michelle, 3d hehe go for it and see what happens

Thanks Cory, I've seen numerous samples around the net lately, but nothing dedicated to this lens, maybe you should start a dedicated sigma 35 image thread in the alternative gear and lenses section, I would def. contribute to it. I PMed you

Thanks Gregg, UPS huh? My favorite sound when I hear the doorbell , loving that rosebud shot

Does this lens ship with the USB dock for updating firmware and adjusting the settings? Or is that an extra expense?

If we're looking at performance the new Sigma is nice but the stats don't support it being better than L lenses. I'm quite impressed with the images posted here but until Sigma masters the low light arena they'll always be second tier.

For the record, I do own 1 sigma lens. It has been a workhorse but it lacks the edge of L glass.

When Sigma produces a lens that can consistently match L glass I'll buy it, especially if it's cheaper.

GreggF, awesome shots! You've really captured not only the story but the perfect niche for this new lens.

Did you get the dock with it? If so have you played with the settings yet?
