Yea, the more I read on the new Art series the more I wonder if it is just a vocal minority with actual issues or if it is a mix of real issues AND technique problems. As a newbie who has a Sigma 30 1.4 Art or the 35 1.4 Art on my radar as the next purchase I make (other than maybe a battery grip). I am having to balance the previous Sigma AF history with what in almost every thread I read about problems seems to be the first response from generally more experienced members stating that at lower apertures any minor technique mistake or issue is magnified.
I''ve been looking through my images more closely, and I'm starting to think that the focus issues aren't as bad as I thought. Slightly too slow shutter speed may be to blame for some of it. The lens is still a little slow to grab focus sometimes though, which is a bummer for me. I really need to do some focus testing, but I don't currently have my tripod..
I am testing out a Canon 28 1.8 for a few days, and it's certainly no sharper than my Sigma. But I think it make be a little quicker to grab focus, and it's ever so slightly wider, which gives a little different field of view that I may like a little better. I'm tossing around the idea of selling my Sigma and UV filter, but can't seem to make up my mind...
