I agree with the conclusion that the Sigma doesn't have the best bokeh. I've seen more pictures with a not so nice (to say it friendly) bokeh of this lens.

I am convinced that even most 35 f2 or f2.8 lenses have a nicer bokeh than this f1.4 lens. The Zeiss f2 for example is one of them. I suppose it is the drawback of being very sharp with hardly loca.

I am not a big fan of the Zeiss 35mm f2 ZE/ZF bokeh ata ll.. I do not think it is better either.

You think this or are you sure? The bokeh of the Sigma is very ugly in many situations. I have never seen that with a Nikon or Zeiss. Some ugly examples of the Zeiss and Nikon enses might help (there are enough samples of the Sigma in this thread). But these are hard to get I think.
