just put mine on the D800, a little soft, fine tuned it to +10 as a guess and is MUCH better. Won't get to try it out for a few days though, outside of clicking around the house. Stoked!

got mine today and its also got AF issues. Needs different fine tuning for different distance's it seems and the left side is wayyyyy out what ever you do.
Going to buy the dock and see if that sorts the issue if not its going to sigma.

But when it nails focus,my god its sharp.

^ I'm thinking the dock is not going to help with focus issues only on left side, but maybe someone who owns it can give us a rundown on what all is possible.

I got mine from the lightning deal and the jury is still out, so far I'm not blown away but I also have trouble thinking below 50mm unless I have an obvious subject (real estate) that makes composition a no-brainer. I may have to shoot a brick wall or a test chart or something to reassure myself that I didn't get a dud Requires virtually no fine tuning but I'm also not seeing very sharp results wide open.

Every time I use the lens I'm staggered by how sensational it is. Collected my Zeiss 55mm f1.8 FE for the A7R today and it is equally stunning. The build of the Sigma smacks of Zeiss but I'm still giving the crown to the Siggy. It's just on another level.

Sonnar T* FE 55mm F1.8 ZA is not built by Zeiss, but Sony Thailand.

Ok thanks. I don't really care who made it, the lens is phenomenal! Plus it has a nice blues Zeiss badge on the side.

I had a copy that was doing about the same. I returned it back to the retailer. I will be buying another one soon. I guess I may have to also add the dock to calibrate the lens.
Thank you all.

I'm not sure if I was supposed to use Nikon-CP filter here (no sample without to compare), but I like it...D700 + Sigma 35mm F/1.4 to show some freezing rain beauty creations.

After having this thing for 24 hours and using it in good light, I'm impressed. The people that have said this focuses fast in low light must be high on nyquil.

I've been diggin' my siggy 35. I got the dock with it but it didn't require any AF tuning across the board.

here's a couple shots from it. one of Mesa Falls, Idaho, and of course the obligatory cat photo

OK folks, so what is the latest recommendation for A/F fine tune issues. First off I have a D800e with no A/F issues, including left a/f point is sharp. Now I have taken delivery of a new Sigma 35 1.4. I have had to dial in +20 a/f fine tune. Center, left and right points all give the same results. Do I send it back and look for a better copy or is this normal and do I just buy a dock? .....That being said, images looks pretty dang amazing.
Thank You

Don, I would send it back if you're at +20. You're always going to wonder what +21 would have been like.
I'd get a replacement. I've been there. My 2nd one was amazing(sharpest lens I own) and needed no af adjustment.

The dock will fix it. I've got a thread around here some where documenting it fairly in depth.
