Interesting results...however I recommend skipping directly to the results at the end!

:lol: The results is what is the most interesting as the images were posted up without anyones knowledge of which lens was used. The rest of the video is just typical Kai :lol:

The show is a low budget, geeky camera mimic of Top Gear.

Sorry I haven't read all the thousands of posts since I last visited. So what exactly is the verdict on this lens. Is it only missing with the 5DIII or is the new QC still a tad bit hit and miss??

It seems to me like most people with issues have 5d3s. Mine works flawlessly on my 5d2 and my t2i.

So what exactly is the verdict on this lens

Work well for 80% of people. Some of the troubles were corrected by replacing the lens, some others didn't. If there's a miscalibration of the body AF system, the f1.4 and sharpness of the lens is going to show it.

Bottom line: The lens itself is stellar. Better to buy if you have MA on your body. If there's AF trouble apart from MA, exchange the lens. If problems persist, return it and get something else.

Kinda same as with Canon in my experience.

The lens works great on my 5DIII. Very small percentage of faulty copies made to appear more serious than it really is by the loud voices of those who are discontent.

LOL, a bit off topic, but very entertaining if you turn on closed-captioning for that video.

Yes. Well, she won't personally. But if you call in and order through Manny, you can have it tested for you on either a 5D2 or 5D3. Here is his contact information:

I had one that was consistently inconsistent on my 5D3. Specifically at longer focal distances. It has been replaced with another that, under normal shooting conditions, seems to be doing just fine and dandy. I would doubt it is a 5D3/siggy 35 compatible issue. While it is totally conceivable that there are some funky copies out there (I had one...I think), I really think that 1) the lens is under extreme scrutiny due to the fact that the sigma lens manufacturer is digging itself out of a hole as far as QC is concerned and 2) the fact that the the new siggy 35 is so totally out of this world sharp as hell wide open that people (myself included) expect every shot to be perfect. Even with the best lens out there you don't score the money shot every time. There are many factors that go into "nailing" the money shot...lighting, contrast, distance to subject are but a few. So when I get a shot that isn't quite as sharp as I know the lens is capable of, under the aforementioned extreme scrutiny, I would like to blame the lens and not the shooting conditions.

Drove 90 miles one way to get mine today. It is stellar. I tested on my body before buying, critical since I have original 5D without MA. Was hard to tell so they let me pop my card in a mkIII and check focus on the shots I took. Played around with it on the drive back before loading up pics on my imac. Wow. This thing is crazy sharp. Breathes new life into my 5D. So much so that I'm starting to think something could be off with my 135L because I do not think it is even close to being this sharp. And it's supposed to be pretty sharp.


Sorry for all the bad grammar. I'm pecking away on my phone
