I'm seriously considering selling my 85 f/1.8 to fund this lens... I can't wait until my birthday in April... Then I'll just buy the 85 again for my birthday...

Wise plan?

This lens should be in addition to your 85.

Nope.. Keep your 85 if you can:) You will regret selling it.

I would almost say sell the 24-105mm unless you really use it often and buy the sigma

I need it for my work :)

And when I'm running around places like Venice for a day with no time to switch lenses around,

I dunno - for walking around on foot around a city, would you rather have a zoom or a couple primes?

Dunno if 35 would be wide enough to use as a walk-around for a place like Disneyland for example, how are you going to get ALL of the castle and ALL of the Disney statue in the frame at once? (and the matterhorn in the background?) hehehe

I had 2 primes when walking around Venice, and thought to myself the whole time "I wish I had a zoom"

Zooms are very useful, but in situations like getting all of the castle and statue, stitching photos together taken by the sigma would get you a better looking image than one shot at 24mm on the 24-105.

I am so glad to see that photosurgeon is banned.

Now back to the 35mm stuff.

I think I will try the Sigma 35 one more time in a few months... If it still shifts like crazy I will give up!

But I loved the lens... I just want it to work right in all conditions. But next time I will order via Amazon and have free return shipping if anything. Canon did some AF adjustments on my body and replaced some internals so my camera should be ideal again to test it out with!
