Sigma 85mm @ f/2 on my 5D3 with a speedlite in a shoot-through umbrella camera left. I'm currently like 6 shoots behind on processing, but while i'm waiting for a gallery to rip, i'm visiting :)

I know, just joking lol. Yeah, i can pretty much pick out which ones came from the 85 when looking at the thumbnails in lightroom just by the color and contrast. The canon 35 is much the same way. super contrasty. the sigma 50 seems to have lower contrast bokeh than those two. I'm wanting to do some testing with it recently to see if it's just my mind playing tricks, or if it's true. (looking now)

i just looked at a comparison of two almost identical shots, one from the 35, and one from the sig 50, and i was wrong, the sig is fine.

No, i've never used the 135 in my life actually.

Just got my copy last night and it's awesome. Only needs +5MA and it's tack sharp all across the board with center focus point and all outer focus points. Same with MFD and infinity. Did a small test with the 85LII i have from CPS right now and they look very very comparable.
