Re: Nikon 24 f/1.4 or 35 f/1.4?


Received my Sigma 35 f/1.4 this week (the first 3rd party lens I've ever bought) and it's absolutely one of the sharpest lenses I've ever used. I have a 200 f/2 and the Sigma is very, very close to that. Sold my Nikon about a year ago and now in in the process of selling my Zeiss 35/2.

This is an interesting review:

The Nikon is as sharp (regardless of what some lens tests say),........


Colin, I would think that the Sigma sample your friend has/had has something wrong with it. I know of one person who had to return his as it wasn't up to scratch. Get hold of an average copy of the Sigma and it is superior to the Nikon 35 f/1.4 in sharpness. The bokeh is about the same looking back at some shots taken with my Nikon 35 f/1.4.
