Just got this lens for my 5d 3. I am very much by the performance of this. Observed little vignetting when shot wide open but nothing serious. Overall I like this lens.

This has been the only thing that I have not been TOTALLY stoked on. Other than that it is perfect for me. Enjoy!

Friend of mine rented this lens for a trip to Paris - he liked it so much that he's selling his Zeiss 50 1.4 and getting the Sigma.

Is this lens in stock anywhere? I'm thinking of ordering one from Adorama to get the free random cleaning supplies but they are back-ordered along with all of the other usual culprits.

Observed little vignetting

I just love the vignetting on this lens! I often add more in LR anyway. it make the image pop a bit more. Depending on subject of course...

Me too, but I would like to have control over when and where I had it! This said, I wonder if LR will be adding a lens profile for this one in the future? I have been using the sigma 85 profile just for the heck of it. Anyone have thoughts on this?

Yes, kinda. It makes a white vignette. I don't like it. The lens profiles for LR really help, but there isn't one out for this lens yet. It's not that bad stoped down a third or so.

The 6D have an anti vignetting setting that work very well. However I dont notice vignetting that much with the lens. It's there yes but I get nice photos anyway. I dont shoot blue skies often though. I think photoshop would help a lot in that case.

Use the profile for the 30mm f 1.4?

Who will... at 35mm, pay that for an IS version? where at 1/30th the problem is object-blur instead of camera-shake?

That would be me!
I need a motion blur resulting from times 1/4-1/8s and keeping sharp steady objects in my street photography.
I need sharp images of church interiors without wedding ceremony. I need possibility to take sharp picture in low light interiors where using a tripod is prohibited. I see many occasions to use IS at 35mm and very few to use f=1.4 instead.

Well, you got a winner lens then! I agree that IS can save the day in extremely low light when you dont want to raise the ISO too much. Dark museums and so on.

IS would be good for handheld video I guess.

Umm duh!?! I guess I could try that to! Thanks, I'm a little slow.

IS might be nice for handheld video.

It was just a thought. If the 35mm is half as good as the 30mm f1.4 it's a cracking lens (excuse the pun). Loving my 30mm so much that the shutter count on the 7D has jumped by over 400 just today and it's not even "beer time" in the UK! New gear love has that effect though. Have a picture....

My first impression: perfect sharpness at 1.4, almost steady focusing, absence of significant color fringe. In a couple of words all pros.

5D MII, 1.4
