Already experimenting with it and it seems to make world of difference I just have to get a hang of what kelvin to have in what situation I see there is a Kelvin chart so between trying to memorize it and experimenting on my own I hope to get a hang of it.

Thanks! to me I just see as the reflective light taking over skin tones and whites Blues, yellows and oranges seem to prevalent.. maybe im trippin? ha

or maybe that wasent the best representation, you can see what I mean here if you have time.

I'm really color blind so I usually have to rely on the technology at hand for WB adjustments. I shoot RAW and in AWB and find something neutral in the shot with WB eyedropper. If there is nothing in my keeper I can usually find something neutral in the shots before or after and than copy and paste the setting into my good shot. Light meters and sensors in the cameras are so much better than they used to be. It is huge difference between my old 40d and 6d as far as AWB goes.

I'm now having sigma 50mm f1.4
Should I buy sigma 35mm f1.4, because my 50mm f1.4 can not render landscape picture well. Truly to say sigma 50mm f1.4 is such a really poor, low quality landscape lens
I'm not interested in zoom lens so much, just want to buy a fix lens does everything. So should I buy 35mm f1.4 and sell 50mm f1.4? How about the landscape rendering quality of sigma 35mm f1.4? I love f1.4, and just wonder if I use this lens for landscaping because I experienced really poor quality of 50mm f1.4 about landscaping ( However it captured portraits really well)

If landscape is your thing and 35mm is on your radar, I think you should look at 24mm instead.

Thank you for recommendation. I used to have samyang 24mm f1.4 instead but I just do not like the feeling of focus, close the aperture, do the metering manually then shoot. And actually the quality control of Samyang is far worse than Sigma or Canon.
Canon 24mm f1.4 L II is just too expensive, out of my reach. I only can afford sth like sigma 35mm f1.4 vs filters
Actually landscape is not my everything, I love to take everyday photos with environmental portrait, travelling and I'm a kind of bokehelious man. That's why I bought sigma 50mm f1.4 but that lens is really poor at rendering landscape photos :(
I love the 35mm focal length of Siggy 35mm, but just wonder the landscape - travelling ability of this lens
Plz give me some advices because I watched this topic for about 100 pages but haven't decided yet. And right now I'm just a student and sth like 1000$ is really hard to earn

I thought I'd use this place to vent. Basically, as I was updating my lens earlier this week, I was reminded of the official tech support's report on my lens. I sent it in because it was acting up a bit whenever I focused on a window at my house, doing these weird cranking noises, really fast, so I figured, might as well, and ask for it to be focus calibrated for my cameras.

Their response was that they were waiting to receive a firmware update. I wanted to believe them, so I did. Kind of.

This week I got the Sigma USB Dock and was happily updating the lens' firmware to version 1.02 when I noticed the version installed in it was the original 1.00. So I got two things out of this: it still acts up when it focuses on that one window which I kind of accepted and moved on from, it also seemed to focus, at least in my mind, quite more accurately. Also, these guys flat out lied to me. Which is great, you know.

What I take from this as a lesson is that placebos do exist and work. I honestly thought the lens was misfocusing but the error was, apparently, all mine.

Well that and don't contact these people for tech support ever again.
