Re: If for reportage work...

I've rented the sigma and the 35 f2 IS and I bought the 28 f2.8 IS.  the 28 is the smallest and it is critically sharp wide open.  if you like the FL this is a great lens.  the sigma is sharp wide open too, an amazing lens really but large and heavy and well...sigma.

where the f2.8 IS is similar in size to the 50 1.8 the 35 f2 IS is similar to the canon 50 1.4.  at f2 it is not as sharp as the f2.8 wide open but you do have the extra stop  and I prefer the FL.

the canon lenses are going to focus better on the new canon FF sensors.
