My 35 Art was wonderful about 90% of the time, but had 'bad days'. When it acted up, it would front and back focus without reason. Similar to what has been described in some of the reviews written about the 50 Art. But, my copy of the 50 Art is stellar in AF consistency. Up to about 15-20 feet, it's perfect. After that it's not right and I'm sure a dock could fix it for me, but in the 2,000+ shots I've taken with this lens, I've only shot at 1.4 past 20 feet two or three times. Given how well the lens works for what I do, I don't want to mess with the dock.

Because I have had issues with (multiple copies of) the 35 Art, I understand the frustration of inconsistent AF (inconsistent, not just always front focusing, or always back focusing - which is easy to fix with AFMA). My experience leads me to believe that there may be copy variation in the lenses. I seem to have found a great one and am really pleased. But, I do want to reiterate what I wrote a few posts back; When I first got the lens and shot static 'test' objects, under backlit or low contrast conditions, the lens appeared to be inconsistent. However, using this lens in the real world with clients and my kids (my kids move quick) this lens is just as consistent as my L lenses.

OK, this is good to know. I don't do much portrait shots so I intended to use this lens for nature close-ups, still life, urban life & travel, scapes when my 16-35mm is too wide for the scene, occasional friends' portraits... Which means many different focus distances, so I'm not sure this lens will work for what I do, even if I reaaally love the image quality it delivers. But I've got plenty of time to think about it, I just bought the 6D + a second-hand Canon 16-35L so my wallet won't allow me to buy a new lens any soon :-D

I have the Sigma 150mm that I usually use for macro shots, so I focus manually. But when I upgraded to a full frame camera, the focal length became more usuable for other types of shots, and this is when I realized how messy the AF is vmad The AFMA didn't seem to help much. Sigma really needs to improve on this point...

What are you doing with your PP'ing to get it to look like this? Is it a filter? Your photos consistently have a certain 'look', I'm colorblind (rather, "deficient") although I love this look. Cheers!

Well thank you! I am trying for consistency, although I'm always trying different processing as well. Sometimes I'll start with a VSCO film preset and tweak from there. That gives it matte film look that some like and some feel is overdone in wedding processing, etc. Clients seem to love it, which is all right by me! :)
