Curious on what more people are looking forward to... The Canon new 35mm f/2 IS or the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 coming out.

Both around the same price... Optical quality should be excellent with both... One with IS, the other with f/1.4.

Don't reply with neither or other options... This poll is strictly for people looking at one of these TWO lenses coming out soon.

Myself, I think I may go for the Sigma 35, IF the AF performs well. The f/1.4 will be more useful than the IS of the Canon for me.

So which one and why?

Sorry, been burnt by Sigma twice. Never again.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Thrice for me, but the first one didn't count. I'd go with the Canon.

Yeah, I am definitely not going to be an early adopter. No real rush to be this time around... Probably waiting until the new year or even early spring.

I had the Sigma 30 prior and although optically it was great, the AF was mediocre. So I will for sure wait to see how it reviews long term.

If the F/2 IS is sharp wide open then this is the lens that i want for my video needs.

Sigma 35 sounds interesting - most because of their new quality controll - will it work and most customers statisfied with quality.

But I am much more interested in the Xenon 35mm f/1.4 (external link) lens that Schneider Kreuznach has annouced on the Photokina for next year. Should be good enough for high resolution cameras.

Out of the 2 I'd side with the Sigma, but am happy to keep my 35L :D

The f/1.4 capability is more valuable than having IS at f/2.0... but I am a happy 35L user already :)
