Sigma 35mm 1.4 to Canon 35mm 1.4 L II worth the upgrade?

I’ve had my Sigma 35mm 1.4 for a while now but it’s started giving me some focusing issues. I’ve tried using the Sigma USB dock to try and fine tune the AF but it still tends to miss focus.

I’ve been considering dumping the Sigma and going for the 35L II. But before I go all in I thought I’d ask if anyone has done the same thing or if anyone has any input about the situation.

Thanks in advance!

The lens might still be under warranty. At least as of today, content below indicates 4 years so I would definitely attempt that route below replacing.

Full protection. All brand new Sigma Products purchased from a USA authorized Sigma dealers are covered for 4yr USA warranty against defects in manufacturing and workmanship only. Your warranty period begins the day you purchase your Sigma camera, lens and/or flash and runs for a period of four years total from that date.
