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

Hello. I would appreciate it if somebody shared his/her experience with the Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM focusing speed and accuracy for indoor photography of moving people. For indoor non-stationary sceneries I use my 5DIII paired with the 24-70 2.8L II lens. This is a superb combo, enabling plausible shots at 1/125s, f/2.8 and ISO speeds between 1600 and 6400 in most of the situations and most often requiring no flash. I mostly shoot my two little vivid kids playing, hence focusing speed and...

Hey everyone, I'm kinda new to documentary photography, I own a Canon 550D, and I want to buy a new lens (since I only own the 18-55mm and a 55-250mm) to suit the field. So I've kinda narrowed my choices down to either the Canon EF-S 17-55mm F2.8 IS USM, or the Sigma 35mm F1.4 DG HSM. Regarding the Sigma, I haven't dealt with fixed focus lenses before which makes me a little hesitant to lose the range, even though i seen that it has great reviews. Another factor is the fact that I have a...

Hi all, I have an A77 and a Minolta 50mm f1.7 and am tempted by the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens. is it enough of an improvement to justify the purchase? Does it noticeably outperform the 16-50 SSM Sony lens even? My local store does not stock one otherwise I'd test it myself. Opinions appreciated, thanks! --Prejudice is ignorance

I bought a D610 not long ago and my goal is to have a nice small set of primes—as in two or three—because I like how my creativity works, when I'm limited like that. I'm planning on buying the Nikon 85mm f/1.8G, I already have the 50mm f/1.8G, but I plan to sell it, and now I need to be sure about what my second lens will be. So far I'm torn between two lenses: the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art and the Nikon 28mm f/1.8G. The Nikon is cheaper, the Sigma is sharper wide open, the Sigma also handles...
