I haven't found any review that prefers the canon.


I imagine that it's hard to say. If you already have a 35L why would you be toying with the Sigma? I have the 35L, but I'm not tempted to try the Sigma because I already love the lens I have. The Sigma may be very good, but so is my 35L There are no circumstances where any marginal, if any, advantages in IQ would lead me to change.

Agree. My 35L focuses perfectly, no MA. The bokeh leaves something to be desired but from what I have seen, the near DOF bokeh of the Sigma is harsher. This, and my past experience with a few Sigma lenses (15, 50, 85), makes me stay away from it.
