The downside to the lens is CA in the borders of OOF highlights, but the alternative is something like the really harsh over-corrected OOF rendering of the Sigma.
I am critical about what appeals to me regarding bokeh. For example, I dislike the oof rendering from my Batis lenses...it feels a bit swirly and astigmatic (love them regardless!). The Otus 55mm will always be my standard for "perfect bokeh", though I've seen some people be very disparaging of the Otus' bokeh. Such a personal taste thing. All that to say that I actually do not dislike the Sigma's bokeh, though I concede it is no match for the Sony's oof rendering.
Indeed, last night it dawned on me that I may be heading towards buying a Sigma for my needs for three reasons: 1. I have always liked the IQ from the lens (though I have a small issue regarding color), and 2. It's the most affordable high-performing 35mm f/1.4 lens I can think of, and 3. It has the same 67mm filter thread as my Batis 25mm and 85mm, which adds considerably to its overall affordableness.
Downsides are: 1. not native, 2. adapter adds weight making it a heavier choice, not weather sealed.
Sooooo, Nadim or Gene: Get rid of your Sigma 35.........and give me a super nice price for it. Pretty please?
