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

I have used both and settled with the Sigma. I liked it just a bit more - and value wise, in my personal opinion, it is a clear winner.

But, as you say, it is very subjective, and there certainly is room for disagreement (as there should be in any rational discussion about which of two fine lenses is better!)

I totally agree with you that sharpness isn't everything. And if I already owned the Canon, or the Zeiss, then I wouldn't consider trading for the Sigma. I'm fairly certain that all these 35's are more than capable of delivering top quality images.

If both lenses were the same price I doubt you would have the Sigma on your camera right now.

Perhaps - as I prefer to go for Canon glass usually - so maybe I'd have already gotten the Canon. But in this case, I wouldn't be so sure if I was you, particularly considering thispost of yours, where you talk about how much you rate sharpness! If you like the sharpness of the 24-70, then you'll definitely like the Sigma 35 - it's sharper.
