Canon 35mm f1.4 L II it is..
1

I picked the Canon 35mm f1.4 L II.

Tried the sigma 35mm f1.4 in 3 shops on 2 bodies 5DsR and my 5D IV in a span of 1 month only to find the AF problem with sigma is quite underrated.
40% of the shots were OOF especially those ones which were 3-4 metres away from the body. Under dim light, 4/5 shots were OOF.

On the Canon, there were no AF problems.
The IQ of the sigma is as good and perhaps better in areas like vignetting. The sigma falls short in AF. At timea I just could not feel the AF is indeed working.

The sigma costs 38% of the cost of the canon and that is quite unbelievable for its IQ. So is the AF inconsistency which is unbelievable too.
