I really like the lack of CA and much better contrast with the Sigma in those examples. The color rendition looks great too.

Agreed - first thing I noticed was CA on the 35L. Not sure if we can fully discount the 35L yet, but the 35 Sig looks like the best value by far...

Sorry Tony Parenti, but the 35L image is focused in front of the object (see the wood deck). I think the CA and loss of contrast are due to the 35L being out of focus.

Really. Because my focus point was solidly on the clay...

Looking at the 100% crops you could be right... hmm... possibly the lens front focused. I mean I wasn't that far from it and my focus point was right on the clay part.

From an exhibit at the NY botanical gardens. All buildings were made of natural materials. Which is pretty cool:

seems like the Canon has a much thinner DOF. Could it be that while they achieve the same f-stop they don't achieve the same DOF.

The Sigma should actually be shallower, as it appears to be a bit longer than the Canon focal length wise.

This is quite impressive! Of course, the praise is aimed mostly at the photographer and just a little bit to the lens. Great photo.

Still love mine.

Is the 85mm this rad? Might have to sell some other lenses if it is.
