Just realized that only 'Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM'-thread has more views on the first page of lens photo sample archives than this!

Why'd the change the finish on this lens semi-recently?

It's an entirely new lens.

New 30mm f/1.4 (aka 30mm f/1.4 DC HSM A):

Bought this lens brand new in Tokyo for 290$ in february. I am very happy with it, but I'm wondering if there's something I should check, like check for focus problems/backfocus problems. I haven't noticed anything yet, but is there a way to test the lens properly? And I've heard people calibrate their lens with their camera in Sigma stores or something.. Is this recommended?

As I said, im pleased with it, but if shall or could be more sharp, I would ofcourse like to know.

Well.. as you say yourself, you haven't noticed anything yet. Most likely you will never experience any focusing problems (I haven't) and if the lens lives up to your expectations, I suggest you spend your time enjoying this awesome lens, instead of spending it wondering if it could be better/sharper.

..just my two cents :-)

That's probably true. Can't wait to take this baby with me to Paris..
