Does anyone like the canon 35mm 1.4 more than the sigma?

The sigma leaved me underwhelmed. Sad really, I LOVED the Nikon 35g - it was my favorite lens. I can't place my finger on why I'm not endnotes with the sigma, so in wondering about the canon instead.

I hear ya, I have the 35g in my Nikon kit. Ridiculously over priced, Feels cheap/plasticy , focuses dog slow, has excellent IQ. Have the 13yr old design 35L on old 5D, quality build, can focus circles around Nikons new G, IQ is excellent. I don't care one bit if sigma is showing superior mtf, only canon mount 35mm I will consider is the next one from canon
