Re: Canon 35mm F/2

It's a good lens optically, but I do think the Sigma is significantly better.
The weight is a non-issue to me, but if you simply can't afford the
$340 it takes to get a used Sigma 30/1.4, then get a used 35 f/2 at
around $190.

Here's a somewhat unfair comparison between the two lenses. The Sigma
shots were made on a sunnier day, but the results are still worth looking at.
The differences are more apparent near wide open. Both lenses are very
respectable, though.

Processing was similar on both shots:
