I'm still on the fence. I had a Canon 35mm f2 and rarely used it. Not because of the IQ, but because it just isn't my preferred FL. I love the shots in this thread, but I'm not sure I'd shoot like this.

I'm going to make it my mission to shoot like this. I love looking at all the 35mm threads. So many beautiful shots. Had a hard time deciding between the Sigma and the Canon f2 IS Hopefully I'll have no focus issues with the Sigma and look forward pairing it with the 70-200.

I have this same mission for the same reason :D The 35mm f/1.4 lens just has that special feeling!

I couldn't agree more. It's the reason I chose the 35mm focal length to master on FF before 85mm.

85mm images look crisp and amazing.
35mm images look crisp, amazing, and have personality. :lol:

Also, that is the best pacifier I have seen yet.

Hmm.

Upgrade to 5D III,

or buy this lens.

What would you guys do?

Ryan, do you shoot much sports, animals, or small children? Or indoors in low light? In those situations the 5D3 is much better than the 5D2. If you don't, you would probably be better off putting your money into good glass.

This exactly....If you shoot anything that moves go for the 5D3. You will never look back.

Not particularly limited by the Mk II's AF? Then lens. Only reason for you to upgrade to the Mk III is for the better AF. If you need it, then a new lens isn't going to solve your problems.
