Just some sample shots with a Canon 5DmkII + 35mm f1.4L and a Nikon D3x + 35mm f1.4G:

Canon 5DmkII: 1/200sec, f1.4, 200 ISO


Nikon D3x: 1/100sec, f1.4, 100 ISO

Quite similar rendering. I slightly prefer the Nikkor. This isn't a real test though, so get cracking!

I much prefer the Nikon's smoother bokeh too. Sharpness at 100% is about the same for both lenses, unlike the differences between the 85L and new Nikon 85mm F1.4G.

Interesting. The Nikon exposure if brighter, I wonder if that's the camera, the lens, or changing cloud cover?

I'm not sure... The shots were taken within 2 minutes of each other, and as far as I can recall, the lighting didn't change.

Perhaps some EV bias setting was on?

My experience with Canon the metering is not as good. They tend to underexpose 1/3 to 2/3 i always had to dial in a + exposure compensation to save the shadows.

hey guys, so i've had the 34mm f1.4 for a little while now. awesome lens, i've been shooting everything at 1.4 just because i can and i almost always get totally usable results. it's so refreshing to go back to a 1.4 wide prime if you've been use to a f/2.8 zoom. but from what my eyes can see, the lens needs some auto-focus fine tuning unfortunately i find i have to crank it all the way to +10ish. of course, this is a bit frustrating but i'm still on the honeymoon with this lens so to speak. if i did send this lens to nikon for calibration, would i need to bring my camera in as well? that's mainly what i'm trying to figure out. i'm guessing at some point i'll get the lens calibrated.

Brody, If you love the 34 1.4, you will really love the 35 1.4

Before making micro adjustments, did you do a focus test with the camera on a tripod, using a focus target and shutter release cord or using the timer? Import to isolate the human from the process to determine if you have a focus issue. I checked my lens first thing and now my blame myself for OOF shots.

And, no you would only send Nikon the lens.
