Nikon 35mm 1.8 FX vs. Sigma 35 1.4 Samples
2

So I've been wondering about this new Nikon 35mm 1.8 FX lens and seen all the discussion here about how it compares to the Sigma 35 1.4. While I don't necessarily think that's an apples to apples comparison, I've been interested too, so I went down to the local photo shop today and they let me shoot a couple frames outside on my D600. I've posted the shots below. These were all handheld while resting on a fence, focus on the window surrounded by white on the far building. Not the greatest shots, or a scientific test by any stretch, but just thought I'd share for what it's worth. At 100% on my retina display, the Nikon looks to certainly holds its own.
