  • The Sigma 35mm Art. Absolutely killer combo. My sample had no focusing issues unlike others who've reported problems. I also have the Canon 40mm pancake when I want to go light. Next lens will ...
  • Hi Richard The double image stuff is something that I've noticed with all lenses. It's essentially a faint double edge in the out of focus areas at certain distances and apertures. I think it has ...
  • I have the 35 art and find the bokeh to be fantastic. Very shallow DOF and excellent blur (although at times a bit nervous with that double image stuff). While I don't have the 50 Art, it appears ...
  • Stuart, those are great images and that's a great lens! (In fact, I have the same combo of 6D and Sigma.). From poring over the images so far it looks to me that the 35 may be a tad better than ...
  • Replied in Agreed.
    For the record the camera I use is a Canon 6D, my first FF digital and my first DSLR (prior to this I had just a Panasonic G1 and the Sigma DP2 Merrill) and just two lenses. The Sigma 35mm Art ...
  • Replied in Agreed.
    One more thing...when shooting wide open in daylight if you use a good neutral density filter like the B+W coated ones made with Schott glass the results you can achieve approach the look people ...
  • Replied in Agreed.
    Yes. In fact while this is just one persons opinion I feel the 35mm Art may be the best Sigma lens out there. Or anywhere. On Photozone if you look at tests done with various lenses on full frame ...
  • Is a swivel LCD the same thing as a fully articulating screen (like G, GH and FZ series)? Or do they mean 'flippable' (180° up and down only)? Can't tell from the 4/3 rumor pages. Thanks!
  • Created discussions Bokeh vs Bokeh
    Last December I bought the Canon 6D and for a lens I bought the Sigma 35mm ART. And I've been absolutely thrilled with the images those two have been able to produce. When I want sharpness I get ...
  • Thanks for the great responses. @Lighthunter: great shots. Thanks for posting! @Trevor--truer words were never spoken. Thanks! @Dan--the 50L wouldn't be used for landscapes. I have ∑ 35mm f1.4 Art ...
  • I have the 6D and I love the full frame images it produces. Admittedly I'm a bokeh lover and I started to look into the new Sigma 50mm Art lens. I already had the amazing 35mm Sigma Art and ...
  • Actually, for me, it was the fact that the 6D DIDN'T have a pop up flash was what appealed to me. With AF that had better ranging in low light than a bat combined with it's hi ISO IQ a pop up ...
  • This is a really interesting development that will no doubt affect lens design yielding smaller faster lenses with what could be stellar edge to edge sharpness. But I wonder how it will affect an ...
  • There are a lot of fine lenses out there. Canon's 24mm f1.4, 35mm f2 w/35mm Voigtlander OVF and 23mm f1.4 IS, 85mm f1.2 (and if ultimate aperture isn't necessary the f1.8), 40mm pancake p, ...
  • I use both P and Av modes but set up with a number of parameters in C1 and C2. With the Av mode I keep it at widest aperture (lens I use is 35mm Sigma Art) with auto ISO (the 6D errs on the side ...
  • The Canon 85mm f1.8 is a terrific lens but my recommendation would be either the new Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art lens. Or wait until the rumored Sigma 85mm f1.4 Art comes out. Sigma has been on a roll ...
  • Replied in Define "Pop"?
    The "3D Pop" you refer to is generally a result of all the aspects others have mentioned like micro contrast, color rendering and that elusive quantity of focus falloff called bokeh. It's most ...
  • That page is pretty good and I appreciate your taking the time to find it. Unfortunately it's for when AF is properly set up. Somehow I did something that ONLY allows MF (and when you touch the ...
  • One more thing, the lens IS set to AF and not MF. That's where I am totally stumped.
  • Created discussions Need EOS Remote help.
    Last December I bought the 6D and love it. And one of the things I love about it is having ability to operate it remotely via an app for a smart phone. (I use the iPhone 5.) Recently I was ...
