Check above TDP review. Your observation seems complies with above review.

Then check TDP resolution test between two lenses. Sigma at F1.4 seems withstand 85/1.8 at F1.8 well.

Personally I don't own either lens. The future Sigma 85/1.4 Art if Sigma ever updates (that supports the USB dock) will be interesting to me. I will get Sigma 35/1.4 Art first later this year.

Thanks for the feedback.  I rented the Sigma 35 1.4 a few weeks ago to test.  A very impressive lens.  I'm waiting until later in the yer too to see if the price drops a bit on this and the Canon 35 f2.0 IS.  I'm interested to compare results from these two lenses.
