Hi Folks
There's a whole lot of talk regarding the Sigma 35mm f1.4 A lens, so now it's time to show some images please.

I'll start with a series of shots from Devon with a range of apertures.

Finally some real images! What do you think about the lens? It looks very capable, although I am not sold on the boke yet.

I like it, build quality is far beyond any Sigma i've seen before.
I also have a ton of shots of my 6month old daughter and it's a great lens for close-in fun portraits.

The drawing style at mid apertures is very nice, and certainly has some 3d quality to it.
The stopped down performance at distance shows great detail.

I really really wished I had my Zeiss 35/2 for the woodland shots though as the Zeiss does seem to have a bit more DOF (as seen in some of my 35mm lens tests a while back).

A few for the thread! Love the pony shots! Haven't had a chance to shoot too many landscapes at smaller apertures...I really like 1.4-2.0!!

Wow, mine is nothing like that!!!!! I have done many test shots under different conditions and none are sharp but my Nikon glass is. I am debating if I should send to Sigma where they will calibrate to my D3s but I am worried if I try to use on other bodies. I am thinking of just returning it as nothing is sharp and very soft, focus points sem to be way off too. I so wanted this lens to work and will pick up another and hope it is fine. I can return to Adorama and get another. I know things happen but not happy considering the price.

Try the focus micro-adjusting. If that doesn't work, send it back, and maybe try again.

D3s surely does have MA.

Some pieces might be bit iffy. It happens. Try another one. No USB AF tweaking box yet..

Philber....
Thank you! My copy is wicked sharp, even wide open! I MF it most of the time, and AF when I really need to...it sometimes seems off a touch, but I haven't actually say down and MA it yet.
These are all quite old photos( several months ago)...nothing recent as I have just had surgery for the second time on my left thumb!! Can barely hold the camera at the moment!!
I will go thru my library and post more, too!
Thanks again,
Gregg
