Okay, I did it. I ordered the 35mm 1.4 MKII.
Now I have to wait for a couple of days. Hopefully it will arrive in time for our trip.

Thanks for all the help and the info guys.

Cool and good luck. Would love to see some shots from your trip.

Let us know how it is. If you've never shot with a fast prime there is a bit of a learning curve. Don't be put off if initially you're having some difficulties. Getting good results at f/1.4 consistently takes some experience. And don't be resistant to stopping down when appropriate. I read too many posts from those that say, "I bought a fast prime to use it wide open".

I will. I own a 135L and a 300 2.8 IS and I think I know what to expect when it comes to shooting a fast prime. I'm not expecting (especially after reading all the reviews) many difficulties shooting this lens wide open. I do intent to use it a lot wide open. If I want to stop down I could use my 16-35 F4IS for more flexibility.

My wife, a senior manager for a major hospital happened to read your off handed comment over my shoulder a moment ago. She makes many important decisions every day that actually affect people's lives and didn't appreciate your intended humor and its stereotypical implication.

People complain about focus issues with canon bodies ALL THE TIME, doesn't surprise me to see the same complaints with lenses.

I rarely take that stuff into consideration. Buy the lens, it will eithe do what you want it it won't. Oh, and yes, I am talking about the Sig 35A.

Occasionally I try to talk myself into either trading the 35Afor a 50A, or just buying the 50A, but in the end, I like 35 much better than 50 and rarely find myself shooting there with a zoom lens anyway. If the Sig gives you fits, send it back, but I bet you won't.


Edit: oh, okay, enjoy. lol
