The f/1.4 capability is more valuable than having IS at f/2.0... but I am a happy 35L user already :)

+1.

(Except that I'm not a 35L user.)

I don't think so.
I'm going to pick up Zeiss 1.4/35 ZE; otherwise 35L all-the-way ;)

I don't think any off brand will get my attention if an equivalent is in the Canon line.
I have the current 35 mm F2 and love it.
So my stone cold choice is the Canon 35 mm.

I'm mostly interested in the Sigma. I don't see the value in an $800 f2 prime either, IS just doesn't seem useful at this focal length for what I shoot.

I'm hoping the Sigma is stellar, especially the af, it would have to be for me to part with the 35L. I have entertained the possibility of selling the 35L and getting the Sigma + Canon 1.4 tc III for roughly the same coin. :)

Curious on what more people are looking forward to... The Canon new 35mm f/2 IS or the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 coming out.

Both around the same price... Optical quality should be excellent with both... One with IS, the other with f/1.4.

Don't reply with neither or other options... This poll is strictly for people looking at one of these TWO lenses coming out soon.

Myself, I think I may go for the Sigma 35, IF the AF performs well. The f/1.4 will be more useful than the IS of the Canon for me.

So which one and why?

Sigma is f/1.4 and it is not the same price, is it 30% less

The Sigma for me. Assuming it doesn't have QC issues I will likely pick one up in a few months.

I really like the look of both, its a close call but the Sigma looks to have the magic that makes me love my Sigmalux

I'm also a tinkerer and a computer geek, so I like the idea of being to plug up the Sigma and adjust it myself!

I said the Sigma was f/1.4... Also, where are you getting your prices from?

Sigma is $899... Canon is $849... The Sigma is about 5.5% more expensive.

Interested in both but right now I'm leaning more towards the canon but will wait for reviews on both before ordering either.

usually more aperture is better, but I think this 35 may be the exception to the rule. I find that shooting F2 is about as wide as I want to go most of the time, so the addition of another stop... not worth the flexibility of IS. Just my opinion.

If the sigma had IS, it would be huge, but it doesnt, and it's priced kind of high.

I've never been burnt by Sigma and continue to love their lenses. If the Sigma 35mm is as optically sharp as my Samyang 35mm, I'll be selling the Samyang.

I took my Sigma 85mm in to get some purple fringing problem checked, and Sigma Japan fixed and returned it in 1 week.

In near future, 35 is going to be my ff walk around lens. So IS will help. Also with group of people or landscape, f2 is good enough. On other hand my future 85 will be good if it has 1.4.
Only a wish list for now.

I have been hurt waaaay too many times with mis-focusing sigma f1.4 lenses to trust them again; even with their claimed new QC. But when Sigma's are good they are really good and usually have Excellent Bokeh.

I have the 35L and it is great except for the awful purple fringing whenever I use it outside or on anything shiny inside. If the 35 f2 IS is as sharp at f2 as the 35L is at f2 them I will pick it up (and the MTF charts for the 35/2 IS look like it will be).
