Here is the funny part. Sigmas bokeh is dizzy compared to the 35L, sigma is colder but sharper.

I don't have the Canon 35L to test, but this site 6 months ago certainly helped me decide the Sigma was better across what seemed like every test, including the out of focus areas (or bokeh as you call it):

Had both and this comment captures my impression exactly: Sigma on all counts.  I found myself nodding at (pretty much) all published tests which say the same.  I wonder if anyone saying the two are similiar wide-open has actually tested Sigma or referred to the published test results.

Now, the new 35mm f/2 IS is another story, but then we are no longer talking f/1.4.
