I'm with snapsy!
This confirms my hopes that the new Canon 35 IS would be a top lens, and not be discredited by the new Sigma 35. The Canon looks to hold its own and be a top performer in the the Canon prime line-up. The accutance map was really impressive. I've liked the original EF 35/2, except for its weak sides/corners, and this new lens remedies that, making it acceptable for architecture and landscape.
I was also impressed with the 28 IS. Even though it had slightly lower sharpness, it had more uniform sharpness across the frame -- more than either the 24 IS or 35 IS, and that supports my hopes and why I purchased that wider angle lens.
I can hardly wait for the price on the 35 IS to drop into discounted specials! I know I'll be much happier with this lens than the Sigma with the similar performance plus added IS bonus. I sold my Zeiss ZE 35/2 some time back, in anticipation of such lens IQ as this, and it seems I won't be disappointed!
Fred -- You already have this new 35 IS lens. Do you have any preliminary thoughts or test shots you could share?
