Click on the Flickr link. I'm not saying the Canon is a bokeh master I'm just saying it is smoother that's all. Image is not as sharp wide open no doubt. So I guess you have to weigh what is more important to you.

Ive owned both and recently got rid of my 35L, I do prefer the bokeh of the 35L over the sigma 35 hands down

But I love the sharpness and quicker AF of the siggy hands down

But at the end of the day it's art to me, so doesn't matter which lens I used

hahaha... I see you had to lift that exposure a ton at ISO 100.... Did you forget you had it on 100? I've done that several times and burned myself of some really great images...

Yes you got me

It was super bright in the room with the window and almost everything was black on my shot in the room, I like the mood of it when I converted it to B and W and kept tweaking it

Diglloyd Lloyd Chambers have done more testing between the Sigma and Canon (with a lot of pics) Here are a few of his many comments in favour of the Sigma lens.

"The Canon 35/1.4L has a lot of magenta/green color bokeh (secondary longitudinal chromatic aberration), and this lingers until /5.6 (and some violet fringing lingers even to /11). The Sigma 35/1.4 shows much less color error, and is almost neutral by /2.8.

As for sharpness, the Sigma 35/1.4 is superior over the entire crop at every aperture, and strikingly superior through /5.6. Towards lower left the two lenses show the least difference, but towards upper right the Sigma 35/1.4 is particularly strong compared to the Canon.

Observe especially that in the /4 and /5.6 range, the Sigma 35/1.4 is much sharper and shows a lower level of chromatic errors."


"The Sigma 35/1.4 is smoother and cleaner at wide apertures (much less secondary color). The Canon 35/1.4 looks nervous by comparison."



"Conclusions
Thinking forward: the Canon 5D Mark III is only 22 megapixels. What happens when Canon delivers a 40-50 megapixel camera? With that resolution, the Canon 35/1.4L will deliver obviously impaired results (it cannot even perform to the needs of the 5DM3), and the Sigma 35/1.4 will show its limits but still offer a much superior image.

Adding in the superior color correction, the Sigma 35/1.4 looks like a winner here."

Yes. I've seen his review but even his updated sample comparisons show the nervousness displayed by the Sigma. So, to each his own I guess. That's HIS opinion.

If so he would not write "The Canon 35/1.4 looks nervous by comparison."

Look we can go back and forth all night... jojomon11 seems to be in agreement with me regarding the bokeh so I'm obviously not the only one.

When I had the 35/1.4 L I really liked it's IQ but IMHO bokeh was only so-so

I do not have the Sigma but my impression from the pics I see is that its bokeh is much better.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

This thread highlights the benefit of having more than one good choice in a lens at a given focal length. It's great that Sigma is challenging Canon in this way; it can only be good for all of us over the long term.

Time for Sigma to tackle the next frontier: a high performance UWA prime to go up against the 16-35L II or even 17-40L.

Wow the company that has been manufacturing Yugo's for decades suddenly has built a Porsche 911. My problem is the Yugo maker needs to prove them self over a few cycles before giving up a proven product, like Canon L lenses.

Sigma will honestly hit a HOME-RUN if they can produce a 14-24 f/2.8 for Canon mount at around $900-1200... No doubt. I would be all over that. Even if Canon released one, as it would be over double the price.

Sigma already make a 12-24mmf4-5.6 mkII that is $950

You expect a 2 stop faster lens for the same money?
