It's been horrible outside... but I've been giving this lens a workout in the kitchen...

I made gingerbread... the wife did the decorating.

Troll post I see :lol: take it down we don't want people thinking the soft 35L shots come from the Sigma 35 ;)

Used the lens outside today on the 5d3, using outer focus points, front focused really badly. Is this typical of used the outer points?

I haven't had an issue with the outer points.

Could have been me... I was doing a chest-up portrait... I could have easily wavered... I'll try again tomorrow....

I had a 35L that front focused badly with outer AF points. Bought another brand new and it was perfect. Not sure why one was so bad, but it could be a type of lens variation. Drove me insane though!

One of the few keepers I got. Shot at f/1.4. But even this looks a tad front focused on the zipper.

How is the AF consistency on this lens? My sigma 50 after calibration with my body could never hit spot on even with a tripod when I was trying to MA this lens. The target zone would have purple or green fringing.
Surprisingly though..shooting in live view with quick focus(phase detect AF) mode was very good after calibration and zero MA.

Whereas the canon lenses would respond positively to MA

AF seems fine for me, accuracy of AF hit rate is higher than on the 85mm but there's not much in it. Neither the 85 or this needed micro adjust for me.

35mm can withstand a light shower:

Nice shot. Yeah, 1.4 can be tough. Don't forget to also hold your breath when you take the shot.
