Well i had a read on the a1 all looks good to me so I've ordered one :)

Rob.

It looks like a killer machine but £6500 here in the UK is a massive rip considering it's the same in USD over there. vmadvmadvmad
Aint happening for me!

Lol, that pricing is ridiculous indeed. In Canada, we're a bit luckier, the price is close enough to the spot exchange conversion (buying in USD would set me back about $8,250, the asking price in CAD is $8,500). With Ontario harmonized tax, that still comes up very close to $10k, and so a very hard pass for me as well!

I'm still quite happy to see Sony still in the race and not being about to be shown up by Canon.

The A1 will likely be over 10kAUD as the 1DX3 which is a similar price in USD is over 10k here....

Yeah, it's pretty steep price to pay for the latest technology, but in Ontario even though we have to pay the HST bodies are generally pretty close to US pricing once you factor currency conversion. I also prefer to support the local brick and mortar guys as much as I can, within reason of course;-)a.

Looking forward to testing it at the start of the birding season this spring.

Hehe yeah, I do want to support local stores as much as I can, and unless there would be a significant gap in pricing or practicality I usually buy my gear from local stores as well. If I could afford and/or justify that camera (neither of which I can) I'd probably take the hit on the difference and buy locally. Still, I'd want B&H to stay in business as well, they keep having a rather unbeatable stock too ;)

We don't even have good local stores to buy gear. The one we used to have was so overpriced...

Did some side by side shooting with the Sigma 35 1.2 and the Sigma 35 F2.

2 take-aways.....

1. the Sigma 35 F2 is wider than 35mm...the difference is enough to materially impact the FOV, DOF, bokeh, etc.

2. rendering of skintones and colors is very similar between the two lenses. This is a big positive

Sigma 35 F2:

That’s a surprisingly significant dof/fov difference. Both look great though - I might consider adding the f2 as well if the size is right (I’ve not been following these lens releases lately, so I’m just now learning about it). No way I’m letting my 1.2 behemoth go, but sometimes having a lightweight 35 would be really nice.

Not shot from a tripod so the diff might be exaggerated here, but from what I've seen so far, the 35 F2 is on the wider side.

I love the behemoth too, but it isn't always practical.

If I didn't already own the Bigma I would probably default to the 35GM....but the Sigma 35 F2 materially smaller than the GM and having a legitimately compact version of the 35 1.2 that doesn't give up much other than the max aperture is a nice proposition

Wow I remember you from my Canon days1Dm3 ..... Hope to see you here if you get one.

For me its a skip for now as my a9 and the 7r4 are quite capable but maybe a future upgrade as its nice to know where its going.

Nah, I'm not going to go Sony now, if the a9 didn't pull me in. But no question that SONY has been the leader driving innovation for a few years now.

Playing with ambient light. I used spot metering tied to the focal point and used a radial filter and adjustment brush in ACR to 'normalize' exposure on my face. In PS, I selected my shirt then applied a levels adjustment layer to darken it a bit more.

I used my Sigma 35 f1.4 Art lens at f2 for this shot.

I didn't go out for this little set.

I wish I could say that I did though :-D

I knew there were trees in the park, but I didn't really know that 'these' trees were here like this.
