Give me a break. It must be a full moon. The bokeh peepers are at it again, just like they were with the Sigma 35mm ART.

Different people are looking for various features out of their lens. I get that. But to try to condemn a lens you only have seen ads and a few pictures that were not well shot is troubling.. If a $950 Auto focus lens preforms as well/almost as well as a $4,000 manual lens guess which one most people will choose.

Both this new Sigma and the 35/1.4 show nervous and distracting bokeh. Call me a bokeh peeper, but I prefer good bokeh above a little bit additiional sharpness that this lens seems to offer.

As far as I now can see, this Sigma doesn't come near the Zeiss Otus. Perhaps only a little bit with sharpness. I think it doesn't come near the Zeiss 50/2 MP either.
