I was gonna keep my lenses around for adapting to my new A7S2, but after using my Canon 50mm 1.4 I feel like it's time for an upgrade. I'd possibly keep around my 24-105mm but there's probably something better in the Sony line or a 3rd party brand I can get with time. The lenses i've been looking at are the: Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 Mitakon Zhongyi 50mm f/0.95 Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Sigma 35mm f/1.4 The Sigma I would have to get an adapter for, but i've heard SOOO...

Newbie here in terms of membership as well as photography, so please bear with my apparent lack of in-depth knowledge in the field. So I recently purchased the Sigma 35mm f1.4 art lens and later the USB dock, anticipating that I could run into focus issues with my D810 (I know, I know, D810 is a bit rash for a newbie, but I swear that this is my only toy). Before the dock arrived, the lens had to be adjusted to +18 using the in-camera settings, which resulted in satisfactory sharpness for...

Hi People, First off, I wanna just say that even though I am a new member of the community, I have been checking out your forums for quite some time now to find a specific answer to my following question. I know all the data regarding subjects related, what I could really use now are impressions and your unbound feedback. I am considering going for some semi-pro gear now (from a 40D w/ 17-85 f4-5.6, 70-300 4-5.6), I am getting very passionate about this topic, in the future I might wanna go...

I was looking into differences between Canon's EF mount and Nikon's F mount and one difference was that most Nikon lenses use a physical lever on the camera mount to control the aperture. This is compared to Canon's EF mount which is 100% electronic with no moving parts on the mount. I know on many Nikon G lenses they use the physical lever on the mount. But do 3rd party lenses, like the Sigma ART series, control aperture completely electronically or do they use a physical lever?

Not sure if this is where to post this. Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 micro adjustment for a Canon 70D? Looking for anybody who has in camera instructions on how to perform this for my camera model specifically. I know they have a usb dock to purchase to do this, but it looks 1) Really confusing and 2) I just spent almost a grand on a lens, I shouldn't have to buy an accessory to fix the focusing. Thank you for any and all answers.

I recently purchased the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART lens to use with my Canon 5D mk iii. I love the lens, but am having major problems with vignetting when using my on camera flash (Canon 580 ex ii).  I ruled out that the lens hood might be blocking the flash. Vignetting happens without the lens hood as well. I also tried adjusting the ZOOM setting on my speedlite to 50mm, 35mm and 24mm, & the vignetting continues. Stopping down doesn't seem to help either. Is there something I'm missing? Or is it...

Can anyone comment on the comparative focus speed of these lenses? I recently picked up the Nikkor 35mm f/1.4 and the focus speed is a little pokey. Is the Sigma faster? Thanks, --Marc A. Garretthttp://since1968.exposure.co

Just picked up a Sigma 35 1.4 Art lens today.  Initially, it seems like it is requiring a +17 adjustment to properly focus.  Is that with in the range of "normal" or should I maybe try a different copy?

Hey everyone! I'm new to the community here. Just starting to get more into digital photography, and I'm looking to buy a Sigma 35mm 1.4 for my canon 60d. My interest was peaked by an individual selling their lens here in South Korea where I currently reside for 580,000 won (about $530). The price is very tempting, but my main concern is that the lens has a small crack or scratch on the distance indicator. You can see what I'm talking about...

Which is better in terms of IQ? Fujifilm X-T1 with XF 23mm f/1.4 R or Canon 6D with Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM? --http://500px.com/AkshaykumarKale
