The last shot with the caution tape is quite artistic!

Gregg,

I retired from UPS in 2009 after 30 years as a driver in Chula Vista, CA. Don't really miss the inside of the buildings at all. What I miss is my customers.

Gregg, I though it was Dunder-Mifflin...

I like how the first shot retains its sharpness across the frame. I need to try one of these!

Under1630...
I'm currently STILL driving!! Have been for, we'll, 16 years this coming March. Eligible in 10 at 80%, but my boys will be 16 and 12... So I might stick around for another 15!!
I understand about not missing UPS! I've had the same route by the ocean for 13 years, and everyone is pretty much my extended family!!!
I was on taw for January, so I was inside with not much to do on some days, so I brought my camera. The Sigma was great in this regard!
Congratulations on retirement!!
Nalax....it's an awesome, awesome lens. At least rent it from Roger...then you can make your own informed decision!!

Bwhip,

Great set, I happen to really like the lighting in the cat picture. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks very much, Jon.

Had a little dusting of snow here last night, so decided to take a little walk in the foothills with Mrs. Whip and the pups this morning (with the 5d3 and Sigma 35 around my neck)...

Great shots above! Really like the third dog shot(I like them all, but...), and I don't know about you, but I don't see any 3D in those shots at all!!!😉

Can someone please explain to me why over half the sample shots posted have either had the "clarity" slider overly increased or a film filter applied to them?

I thought the whole point of seeing sample shots for a relatively new lens was so that people could see what kinds of images are being made with it prior to post-processing the shiza out of it.

I suppose it's just me. But based on the compliments of how great the sample shots look from other users, I feel like they are all being duped as those images are all clearly heavily processed and not real/accurate representations of how the lens truly renders.

To be more specific........
The two images posted by supermario343 both look like they have had film filters applied and a few of the shots posted by bwhip62 i.e. motorcycle shot, most of the dog shots (all have heavy-handed clarity boost).

Just speaking from the point of view of someone who would love to see more right out of the camera shots to help make a decision on whether to swap lenses.
