My Siggy on the D800E requires +20. It's razor sharp now. My Nikon 85 1.8 G requires +18. I'm probably going to live with it. This appears to be the sharpest lens I've ever used wide open.

Lol. This thread has that effect on people.

Think I will start a poll to see how many people have bought the lens as a result of this thread. Maybe Sigma will give me some commission.

Docs' 35 is really dialed in with his 800E!

CT: We'll call you TM jr, I've lost count of how many lenses I've tried because of his threads!

I never shot 35 before (70 to 200 was my comfort zone). Now half my time is spent in that neighborhood.

When I go back to Yellowstone this Fall to shoot Grizzlies, I better leave the 35 home. (On the other hand, a head shot just before the big chomp could be a killer final image.....provided I use good technique and watch for camera shake )

For some reason, I imagine you running into this field with a bear suit on holding a camera with a 35mm on it - active camouflage.

This guy shot a polar bear in the water with a fisheye: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/whats-on/temporary-exhibitions/wpy/prevPhoto.do?photo=2717&category=3&year=2011

Imagine pulling that off and STILL not winning wildlife photog of the year.

Ain't it great? I keep finding myself shooting close-ups with this lens as well. It's too much fun. With the D800e you can just reach into the frame and grab whatever tiny detail you want and it looks great. I've been running around behind the house chasing bugs. You can capture every hair on a bee's ass from 3 feet away. I haven't even bothered getting out the tripod yet.

















Here's what an uncropped image looks like.

imo, they earned every cent of it. Lots of bang for the buck and they aren't riding on "history" or "collectors value" like some of the german lenses.

And yes, I've noticed that the sales of Leica 35 1.4 R summilux have flat lined. Why pay $3500 for the Leica when the Sigma outdoes the Leica on many aspects for $899?

Keep up the great work Sigma.
