im still debating between this and a 35L. i used to own a 35L and loved it!!! but after seeing the siggy version. i kinda feel like i could use those extra $$$ saved on buying the siggy instead of the canon.

You and me both!

The S35 offers better sharpness and overall image quality for less money. I just hope I'll get a copy with consistent AF.

Do not worry about inconsistent AF, I have found that it is pretty accurate with focusing. If you don't have MA capabilites on whatever body you may have, I would recommend trying the lens you want to buy first, but if not it shouldn't be an issue.

Don't waste money on the 35L either, I have had both, this lens > 35L. It also feels perfect in my hands, it's solidly built and has a great finish to it.

I do have MFA on my camera and it works great as long as any problems with back focus or front focus is consistent at all focus distances e.t.c. But after reading about the problems that Invertalon and some others had, I'm almost afraid of this lens.

But yeah, I will buy it and test it out very carefully at the shop. :)

You guys/gals are making me crazy! Got some $ set aside and was ready to buy a 135 f2 (my second time) but, after going through this thread and seeing the possibilities this lens opens up I can't decide which way to go.

Lol, no matter what lens you buy there is bound ot be problems of some sort. Even though we, humans, can build some marvelous stuff not everything works 100%. Test it out, see what you think, and if you like it get it! I highly doubt you'll be disappointed! :)

Sadly I just returned my 35 to Adorama. Until I upgrade to a camera with MA I'll hold off on this lens. I was going to keep trying until I found one that worked with my 5D but after seeing what shipping cost that could get expensive. Someday I'll own it again.

I thought this lens had a USB slot so that you could adjust the lens's focus to your camera? That's one of the big reasons I find the new Sigma's so appealing... did I misread that somewhere?

Yes. There's a USB dock that is sold separately, and has yet to be released for sale. With that you can adjust the AF parameters of the lens.

Ah, I see. I though it was software sold with the lens and you just hooked it up to your computer. I won't be able to get one of these for some time anyway, and will probably go with the 50mm version if it turns out to be just as good :)

The software comes with the lens, but without the USB dock it's worthless. I think it was a mistake for Sigma to not have their dock ready for release with this first round of new lenses.
