| p.2 #7 · Bryan Carnathan posted his Sigma 35mm f/1.4 review |
Thanks snapsy! Yes, that's what I was looking at. I looked at the f/8 and f/11 this time -- it's not until f/8 that the Sigma catches up to the Canon, and they are about equal at those to apertures. There the Sigma seems a touch sharper mid-frame, but the Canon has more contrast. Just about a wash really. But f/2 thru f/5.6 the entire frame looks more favorable to Canon to me.
you could buy the Sig in nikon mount to use on a d800e if you care about resolution that much
C'mon, I'm not THAT desperate!
Seriously, I would have considered buying a D800/e, if Nikon had had the sense to build a Canon EF mount version that could fully utilize the Canon lenses.
And here it looks like the 35 IS meets or beats the Sig f/2 to f/5.6, tying from f/5.6 to f/11, that's where I live.
I'm not saying the Sig isn't a nice lens, it's very nice. But it's funny how we manage our expectations. Past experience has taught us that Sig can be unreliable, so we're ecstatic to have a category leading optic in our hands. But Canon merely ties (or at worst, comes close) the new renown optic plus has IS, and it's yesterday's news. It's really about preconceived notions and track record.
