Re: Sigma 35mm f1.4 and Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Imatested

Thanks for the review, I also own quite a few 35mm including the new Sigma 35 and the Zeiss 35 1.4, from my experience of them on D3 and D800E, one thing I didn't see you mention and I want to bring it up is at F1.4, the Zeiss has very strong color fringing while the Sigma has a lot less, so I actually avoid shooting the Zeiss at 1.4 in some situation when I think this particular issue will show up in the picture, and with the Sigma I don't really have to worry about that, and I agree with you I still saw the Zeiss perform better than Sigma at my "landscape aperture"  like F8-F11 at the edge, the Zeiss perform so well there put my 35L to shame, so I am still keeping both for different applications.
