Everyone says this... but the charts are valuable. I've seen alot of charts and have shot alot of glass. Seeing the charts lets me get an idea of how it will perform. Dustin likes Tamron glass... I personally hate the warm cast it produces vs the Canon. Sure I've learned how to "tweak" the images in post to get it close to the Canon but I'd rather shoot glass that performs like the Canon. Sigma glass does that.

I think if I was to go but any non real world tests, DXO mark lens ratings can be more interesting since they measure lens transmission too. I've also read that every company does MTF charts differently so makes it pretty pointless comparing them if they are from different manufacturers.
I like to just wait and see real world tests and some prefer to see charts, everyone's different.

nope, there are a few guys on this forum that have been through FAR more gear than Talley. Talley only dabbles with two mount types, Fuji X and Canon EF.

I've got 75 and that doesnt even include a few newer acquisitions and the MF glass I've been through, dozens. I know others that have gone through FAR more lenses and gear than I have.

Darn you!!!!!!

All in all I'm probably over 100 lenses if you include my wifes systems too... I've cycled her through a bunch as well. I looked at her LR and hers is at 66 lenses and while some of ours are shared there has been a bunch that hasn't.

People have me beat for sure....

But I'm not far behind :)

I'm already at a tipping point for me to swap the 24A & 50A for the 24-70mk2. If I swap the 85A for this 85 IS then the only thing left for me would be the 35 so at that point I already told myself might as well go all in and get the 35II.

So we'll see.

This. If it isn't, I guess I am stuck with the 1.8 for another 25 (?) years.

My last 2 purchases were the 85 Art and the 24-70(11)

both have been 100% spot on

My 85 art is killer so not even thinking about the 85L. I have an excellent copy. I have been pretty lucky with Sigma.

Go all L glass and you'll have very reliable autofocus regarldess of lighting and situation :)

35Lmk2 is logical lens to buy if you love the 35mm focal length.

images stabilization would have been more logical in a "new" 135L. 85mm I still find it an odd match unless you intend to use if for video.
