Re: 35mm 1.4 ZA Lens vs. Sigma 1.4 Art Lens

You've probably read a few of the discussions about these lenses.

I'd say:

If your budget is low, get the Saymyang.

If you want the sharpest images, then [it's a tossup between the Sigma, though a good copy of the Sony is very sharp. If you take 10 copies of each lens the Sigma will be slighly sharper, according to MTF charts.

If you want the nicest rendering, get the Sony. The sigma bokeh is not pleasing. I love the Sony; it's my favorite and go-to lens. The OOC photos barely need editing. It's a marvel (just shame about the QC, though sigma QC is similar to Sony's according to the lensrentals writeup, I believe).

If I had to take one lens for any trip it would be the Sony 35mm 1.4.
