No IS? Come on Canon...

If it had IS I would have saved my pennies.

I went with the 35 F2 IS two years ago for this reason. It's wicked sharp wide open and has very good IS for like $500 new.

At this wide of an angle, when you compare F1.4 to F2, it makes you wonder, is it work the price hike to go 35L (MKI) when it's not optically as good as the newer 35 F2 IS. Now, with the 35L II, I'm sure optically it will be slightly better than the 35 F2 IS, but... one stop, and no IS, for $1300 more. I just don't get it.

So at this point, I'm just really curious from an academic stand point, how it will compare to the Sigma 35 ART (which also made me wonder, why is there no OS on this lens?).

Very best,

I'm buying this. Sigma 35 Art has bleep autofocus when the dollars roll in (high end wedding photojournalism). Sharper than the Sigma 35, weather sealed, and reduced CA? Well worth 1800. That said, I do wish it was the 50mm f/1.2L II. Actually, 1800 for that for the same MTF and weather sealing and improvements would be more than fair. I guess 1800 is still a lot considering the 35mm focal length's not as much beesness for me as the 50 focal length. Still, Sigma is overrated for profesh work. Ok for entry level pro and amateur work in great light. Focuses and hunts when the sun creeps down or contrast drops.

Pre-ordered. I thoroughly enjoyed the 24Lii when it first came out. Was one of the first to buy it and never regretted the purchase. I have a feeling I will enjoy the 35Lii just as much. :)

Just went ahead and preordered. First time I'm buying something right out the gate. Hope all goes well and ships on time before I start flying around the world.

I have no doubt the lens will be amazing. Canon may not be making the best cameras right now, but their lenses are far above the competition.

I can run laps around folks with Nikon and Sony. :D Gonna set my 12k wedding goal for next summer now that Canon primes are getting refreshed, haha.

so...question...is chromatic that strong on the 35 v1 or the 35 art or even the 35 is?

ive never been impressed that it was the main issue...

but the idea of the new biological optical formula sounds interesting.

Im owning the Sigma 35mm. I would pay 1800$ on the Canon if the focus consistency will be much better.
I also feel like the Sigma struggles a bit in really low light and focus is critical for weddings.
What I dont like about the Sigma is that when I shoot with a strong backlight, the damn colors in my shots are washed out, and there is no pleasing flare at all. Just washed out shots.

If it wont do that, Sigma is still the best bang for the buck.

Can't wait for May/June/July to arrive so prices drop to around $1,440.

Thank you Sigma, Nikon, Yongnuo, Zeiss, Rokinon, Bower and Samyang for putting out 35/1.4 to keep competition alive.

The Series one currently sells on BH for $1,479

Better than the Art in the corners, weather/dust sealing, and native AF.

I can live with the Art. Now who wants to make me a deal? ;-)a
