I always buy brick and mortar instead of online for big ticket items. I like that if I get a lemon, I can just go right back for an exchange. I've only ever bought one lens online (Adorama) and that was only because they were running a special promotion.

btw, you can see some of my wide open samples here: http://www.stanc.net/s​igma35 (external link)

Nice shots, ill take that Lotus now thanks :cool:

I just came from a local camera store in Dallas with this lens; I'm using it on my 1D series. I have to say this thing is impressive. I've always dismissed sigma in the past for their build quality and lackluster performance from the few I've tried out.

Build quality is better than my L lenses (much like a zeiss lens really), the colors out of camera are excellent and focus is spot on for me.

My main concern going is was focusing so I played with it in the store and purchased it after micro adjusting it a bit. So far I've tried indoors under fluorescent lighting and in some very dark rooms, outdoors in bright sunlight and heavy clouds I've tried many different situations between f1.4 and 4.0 and focus is great. Before micro adjusting it I had a small bit of front focusing but now it hits it right every time.

I'm blown away by this lens, I've always been an L glass kinda guy but I could see being a sigma owner if they made more lenses like this.

Could the focus issue get worse over time used? What parts would worn, this should be my last lens for a while. I hope...

I had to send mine back to Adorama. focused great outdoors but, indoors it would focus really erotic. I like the lens so much I am considering buying another one along with the dock. im trying to decide between trying another Sigma and the 50 L 1.2. Adorama received the lens yesterday. It should not be too long (they said about nine days to credit my paypal) until I can you pull the trigger once again.

Yes, try it again with the dock.

I had the same debate a few months ago. After playing lenses; I decided I liked the 50mm perspective better, and for what I wanted the lens for (low light portraits pretty much); 50L just seemed a better fit. (Brighter; better low light focusing(than almost anything), compression, etc)

Here's a landscape I took with my Sigma 35, focused with live view. I did some pano's with it too, such a sharp lens!

So where is the best place to purchase this lens online?

Adorama?

Amazon?

B&H?

Samys?

Beach Camera?

You can't go wrong with either one of those. If you need an exchange Amazon will ship one out before receiving the original shipment back...

Well, there are faster deliveries available than through B&H, but I sure liked the rebate that came a few weeks later.
