Yes. I'm really in a quandary now. I was willing to give up a stop of light, but a bit of sharpness too? I just don't know. The Canon seems to be priced a bit high for this level of performance. It will be interesting to see what both of these prices settle down to in a year or two.
Having another look, I think the Canon may hold it's own. When you compare the Canon f2 IS to the Sigma f1.4, both wide open, the Canon beats the Sigma in center and average resolution, but falls behind the Sigma in the corners. I think there is more to this story than what we have seen so far. I'd like to see some more testing at f 2.8 and smaller apertures.
You have to compare them at the same aperture. And look at both at f/2
No I don't! I can do what I want!
Really, though, stopping down any lens 1 stop from wide open usually results in a significant improvement. Isn't that what we expect? Now if the Canon had surpassed the Sigma at f2, that really would have been quite exceptional.
