Omar, those are burgers...well, just the meat. So you might be surprised if you eat one of them thinking those were cookies! :)

Yes. All at f1.4.

Whoops! Serves me right for seeing this on the iphone. Now that i see it on my computer it would have been odd to see a cookie with a piece of onion sticking out :lol:

One thing I do really like is, if you put the lens hood on back to front (not using as hood), it has rubber protection on the edge to stop the lens getting knocked. Nice touch.

Just got my Sigma 35 copy delivered today. Haven't had much time to play with it but from what I can tell it's pretty darn sharp. Just some random shots below. All SOOC exports from LR no sharpening just JPEG conversion.

ACR

I'm just viewing in LR 4 and with fxif on firefox. Flickr/Zenfolio also seem to have no trouble. But I haven't tried ACR.

Has anyone had to micro adjust the their lens? I have both the Canon 35mm f2 is and the Sigma 35mm 1.4 and the sigma seems to either back or front focus compared to the Canon. If I use the center point the focus is either behind or in front depending on the subject. I tried the micro adjustment and it's still off. This is on a Canon 6D. The 40mm 2.8 and 35mm f2 is are spot on all the time. Can someone using the canon software take a pic using the center AF point and then view it 100% on the screen w/ AF point selection on the canon software to check.. I'd appreciate it.

Try it on a tripod so you can eliminate user error; f1.4 is very thin DOF compared even to f2, and even a small movement from you back/forward may throw off focus.

Mine seems to be perfect so far, though I haven't done any real tests since I believe in only testing when there appears to be something wrong, otherwise you end up looking for problems.

I did that... Shooting on a flat surface everything is okay.. but for example shoot a person and focusing on their nose tip, I get the lips in focus.

do you do focus and recompose? for thin DOF it's not advisable. little shifting will also shift the focal plane.

Was it tripod mounted when you shot the person aiming at nose tip?

Those are nice shots up there Tony. Number 2 is fantastic. How do you go about softening an image?

Alien Skin Exposure - it has a fantastic blur slider

It's a Photoshop Plugin
