That "L" lens "look" - Canon v Sigma 35mm1.4
Apr 22, 2013

I have been looking for a used 35mm 1.4L because I tried one a few years ago and was impressed with the colour of the images. Now I read reviews of the Sigma 35mm 1.4 and the consensus seems to be that technically it is superior, or at least equal, to the Canon. And cheaper. Certainly seems to be sharper at f1.4.

But my experience with "L" lens is that their colour, contrast or whatever, is great, and maybe more important than sharpness. Sharpness can be measured but the "look" that I'm speaking of is a purely subjective thing. There would be plenty of room for disagreement.

So what do you think? Does any undefinable quality of the Canon lens overcome the technical superiority of the Sigma lens?

Cheers
