I took delivery of a used Σ24A yesterday. With nothing better to do in the middle of the night, I rattled off a bunch of test shots. Conditions were dimly lit TV room with a mixture of lighting. As expected, LiveView nailed focus every time. I got roughly 70% in-focus shots using phase-detect AF. Most of the misses were back-focused. Two out of the 30 misses were front focused, badly. For the conditions, I think the lens performed about as well as Canon lenses, maybe a touch worse. It did perform worse in dimly lit areas of the room, and on targets with little contrast, but I got the 'beep' every time. Using focus assist from 580EX II made no difference. Is this, more or less, what I should expect from this lens?

EDIT:
Will the dock help?
P.S.: Haven't tried it in decent light, yet.

When AF goes well, the results are astounding. Both shots are about 100% crops. First is 80D @ f/1.4, second 6D @ f/2.8.

Is there not much love for this lens? I picked one up recently and really like it so far. I also have the 35A, but the 24 gives a different look for sure. Here's a couple from a recent family session.

Just picked one up from LensAuthority; $500 was too good to pass up. This is my first Sigma lens, and so far I'm sold! Have only shot it on my 5d3, but this is impressive wide open...

yup, it's an impressive lens.
I had issues with it focusing properly on my 1DS III but it works gorgeously on my Canon mirrorless cameras... with or without the speed booster.
Even with the AF issues, I still use it on the full frame because it is just magical.
For me, I love using as a pet portrait lens; fast enough for decently shallow DOF, wide enough for engaging environmental portraits. All around awesome IMO.

Yeah, I haven't noticed any focus issues on the 5D3, but I haven't been in super focus-critical situations, either (if focus on that fern I just posted were a bit in front or behind, it wouldn't really change the photo much). Pet photos sound like a great idea- I'm hoping I'm going to get to see my parents for a 6-ft-distant outdoor visit this weekend, so I'll have to bring this along to try with their beagle!

I'm assuming that the issue is because of my old 1DS mk III. I have a bunch of other Canon crop sensor cameras (mirrored and mirrorless) that work fine with the lens.
I'd love to see the Beagle photos when they happen!
Here are two of mine. The first is nothing special but it shows the capabilities of the lens pretty well. It is shot wide open but the speed booster makes the aperture read as f/1.
The second is a better photo but really could have been taken with my 24-70 just as easily. Either way, I love this lens!

Been 7 months since someone posted here. Enjoy a random self portrait I did, which is way harder than you can imagine when you have almost no way to see clearly.
