It seems like Sigma prime lenses are very consistent for having a nice smooth background blur. Even if the background is busy, it`s still pleasing to the eyes. Canon cheap primes below $500 seem to hurt my eyes a bit.... On the contrary, Sigma is very consistent producing bad copy with AF issues.
Still, I love Sigma prime a lot! Does Sigma know about these issues? What if we all send an email to them and tell them how much we like their prime lenses and open this AF isssue?
We need to start a campaign! :-)

You'd think they would have to know. If that is the case, I don't understand why they don't try to improve their qc. Seems like it would be a lot easier get get it right the first time around for the customer and themselves. I'm just going off what I have heard, you probably don't hear as much about the good copies.

The way I see is, canon produces WAY more lenses than Sigma does so that means a lot of happy customers over ones complaining about bad copies.

You also have canon customers who don't really know better. My friend had an L glass and was fine with the softness because he didn't know any better.

People branching off with other brands tend to pixel peep to justify their non brand purchase, thus, we hear more about the bad copies....

Realistically though, I think sigma QA isn't any more worse than Canon. Canon just has a lot more people who settle for what the get because they don't know better. Most of my friends who have a dslr, just for family pics or what not, don't know anything about image quality.

They also won't buy non Canon lenses just because their camera says canon. Not because they are brand loyal, but because they don't need to put in the research photographers do in order to get the best quality out of their glass.

So Sigma = less customers who know more about photography/equipment
Canon = a ton of both kinds of customers

This thread has me really tempted... I ultimately want to have the 24mm f/1.4L II, but it is too expensive for me at the moment. I am currently torn between this Sigma 24mm and the Sigma 15mm FE for my next purchase. Hopefully we can get more pictures in this thread to convince me :)

Wow. What a lens.

I'm thinking of dropping my dreams of HD Video (for now, so no more T1i/T2i) ... and picking up a 5Dc with this lens. The focal length is a bit wide, but I love that look...

Combined with a 50/1.4 and soon the 85/1.4, the winning Sigma combo? :D


Too much gear...
take nothing but pictures .... kill nothing but time .... leave nothing but footprints

That's a smart choice. I have a T1i as a back up camera but the my 5d mkII (used a 5d classic in the past) are just killer combos with fast primes.
