when compared to the Nikon naman daw:

flare control:  NIKON
sharpness:     SIGMA
bokeh:           NIKON
price:            SIGMA
AF speed:      ??????
weather seal: NIKON

ayon sa mga feedback sa net :o :o :o

sa 85mm f/1.4 department naman, hindi lumalayo sa nikon ang sigma, pero obvious na mas may contrast si nikkor at maganda flare handling dahil sa mang nano crystal coating ::) I shot with the nikkor before at totoong may kapangyarihan yung lens na yan na mahirap ipaliwanag pag nakita mo yung image, pareho sa 70-200VRII nung sinubukan ko. posible kayang yun mang nano crystal coat yun ::)

iyan laban ng Sigma Art lenses, sharp at wide open.  Yun lang, talagang trademark na ng sigma yung pakakaroon ng yellow cast sa lenses niya.

oo. para sa akin, kasing halaga ng flare control yung sharpness,eh. madalas kasi akong mag night shot. :o :o :o

ang hirap alisin yung flare o ghost na rainbow. ::)

maganda yan, pakita ng mga 3rd party manufacturers na kaya nilang sumabay talaga nang sa ganon lumiit liit yung ulo ng nikon at canon.

comment ko lang sa lens na ito, wala na yung strong yellow cast ng sigma... yung 28-70 f2.8 EX DG nila sobrang yellow ng captures.... yung phased out na 24-60 f2.8 EX DG nila very neutral yung kulay.... yung 85mm f1.4 nila meron pa unti yellow pero etong 35mm f1.4 more or less neutral... in short, marami sigma lenses na may yellow cast pero nde lahat meron... mabilis sobra af niya for a 1.4 lens and nagagamit ko for tracking... nung una ko nabili to, nagbabago af nya depende sa lightsource at distance... pag flourescent lighting kelangan ng microadjust or kung malayo subject.... after firmware upgrade, mas ok na sya with my eos 6D :)

haha I know the feeling.... masaya na ako sa sigma 24 60 ko kasi wala cast pero puro front focus e.... yung 28 70 na napalit ko maayos focus pero ang sagwa ng kulay :D yung coating nga ata na gamit nila sa karamihan ng EX lenses nila yung dahilan kaya may yellow cast yung lens.... happy to report na dito sa latest lens nila, maganda kulay... kung meron man, nde ko pansin... yung 28 70 ko, in your face yung color cast

Laki improvement ng Sigma with the Arts Lenses.

@Iron_trigger...sir regarding firmware update sa canon 6D with sigma lens.

How did you go about this update? sa body or sa lens?

Got focus issue din with my 70D+18-35 Sigma. Lagi Out of focus sa viewfinder mode.

But Tack sharp naman when using live view mode.

brought my lens to jt photoworld... they used the sigma dock there to update the lens firmware... hope they can fix your 18-35... zoom lenses are harder to test across its entire range...

I also have this lens. Sya pinakagamitin ko na lens. Best value for money. Medyo mabigat lang but other than that, no other complaints.

I bought the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 prime, paired it off with my Nikon D7100 body.  At first, I was choosing between this and the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 zoom.  But seeing long term, I went for the Sigma 35mm Art lens as it's already FX compatible.  In DX format Nikons, the 35mm is a focal length I'm comfortable using.  Not too wide, not too tight, it's just about right -- the "Goldilocks" lens for DX Nikons to my way of thinking.  If I were to own only one prime lens, for DX, the 35mm would be my personal choice though the 50mm ain't bad either.

Wala pang 1 week sa akin yung lens but my initial impressions, and I agree with the above-mentioned comments, it's tack sharp wide open and the yellow color cast is now gone.  I did not order the USB dock, and luckily, I haven't encountered any focusing issues so far.  I'll keep it as it is, right out of the box, with no tweaks needed.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it. 

I shot the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 A for the first time last Saturday during a wedding.  As they say, a camera + lens combo is sorely tested shooting the wedding entourage as they walk down the aisle, backlit and with subjects constantly moving out of your focal plane.  The AF speed was okay and I experienced no AF hunting issues whatsoever.  Other than the Sigma 35mm not being weather-sealed, but I have my old reliable Nikkor 17-55mm zoom for that, I have no issues with the Sigma and I think it's a good buy.  I'm a prime kind of guy, and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 A lens is the optic that's always attached on my D7100 most of the time.  I guess I'll have to buy a suitable screw-on ND filter for it to allow me to shoot outdoors at noontime wide open for certain shots I do.

Should Sigma update their 85mm (or 105mm Macro) and come up with the Art lens version, that's something I'm looking forward to and a nice duo to have.  For my needs, the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 A is a keeper.

It's really hard to use another lens after using the Sigma 35mm Art. This is my most used lens in my all prime stable now. Might change if the 50mm Art arrives already. For me, I got the USB dock. I found my copy (on a Canon) back-focuses slightly at infinity although I don't shoot at that range with this lens at all. The geek in me just loves tinkering with it. :D

One time I was tweaking my picture control using a raw file I captured with the D7100 via the Nikon ViewNX 2 software that came bundled.  I noticed that the EXIF data says "Nikkor 35mm f/1.4G" rather than the Sigma 35mm f/1.4.  No big deal really, just an observation.  1 month+ after, so far so good and I'm very happy with my DSLR and two-prime setup (35mm + 85mm) and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 never disappointed me.

Sigma reverse-engineers Nikon and Canon's AF algorithm to make lenses compatible with their bodies that's why on some programs, they will show up as another lens on which the algorithm was based on.

I have the Sigma 35mm, once when I was using Nikon and now on Canon. I love it. Very sharp, little to no fringing, and pretty good AF once adjusted with the USB dock. Can't comment on how it compares with the Canon 35L but I didn't need to anymore as the performance of the Sigma is great especially with it's price compared to the Canon. I also have the Sigma 50mm now and I equally love it. One thing that differentiates between the Canon and the Sigma that might be important to people though is the Sigma renders images with a little more contrast than Canon. Same goes with the 50 Art vs 50L. The closest example I can think of about this difference in contrast is when you compare older Nikkor D lenses to their Nikkor G replacements.

Been reading about the 50mm Sigma Art lens and it has been getting great reviews. Medyo malaki lang yung size nya. But I see the performance is amazing!

It's big and heavy talaga but the optics is great. I had to calibrate it at different distances with my dock with a simple ruler and target. I posted a preview of the lens on my website but I deleted the website. I'll make a review on the 50mm as well as the 35mm soon. But so far, I love these two Sigma lenses. Get the dock too as you may need to calibrate them.

Played around with the 35/1.4 Art yesterday, ibang iba siya sa nakaraang mga Sigma lens na nagamit ko before like the 70-200 and 85/1.4

Wala na yung warm color cast, ibang-iba yung itsura niya. Hindi siya subdued colors tulad ng mga Canon, very punchy yung colors tsaka contrasty yung look, tapos maganda yung natural vignette for portraits.

Ibang-iba na ren yung focusing, ang tahimik tapos snappy kahit sa MkII. Light and day difference sa 85/1.4 lalo na kung near to far or vice versa na focusing
Ang napansin ko lang kelangan ng microadjustment (backfocus) yung nakuha kong sample, unlike yugn 85 ko dati hindi na kelangan
