| p.2 #9 · Sigma 35 1.4: Anyone been using over the 35L? |
bought on FM & used extensively this w/e on D800. Perfect focus accuracy...eh..near perfect.
Lovely lens. Bokeh ranges based on f/stop -- not bad @ all. about like canon 35L in many areas. Hard to compare since I had the bad AF system of the 5d2, so its hard to comapre with newer d800 mated to newer designed siggy 35. The AF on the 35L is faster hands down, and may be a better lens @ infinity. However.....the Coma and flare of the 35L is QUITE high. But for the Siggy. I wouldn't pay $900 new (I paid $810 used), nor would I pay the 35L new price. WAY TOO HIGH!! The 35L is built arguably tougher for long haul. It's a tough call. Okay, get Sigma 1st and rent 35L to compare. Or buy 35L on Amazon and compare to your USED copy of SIgma and return NIKON of course for full refund -- and later buy used for less price if you like better. You'll lose probably ZERO on Sigma since demand is so high, Amazon will give 100% refund on new Nikon, and then you are left with your choice -- if its indeed the 35L.
