Re: 35mm 1.4 lens choices

A mount conversion probably makes the most sense for you but if you have extra cash lying around, then definitely the Sigma 35mm 1.2 is going to give you everything you want.

Sigma changed their focus motors since the 85mm 1.4. The 24mm and 35mm are older sigma lenses so they have slightly slower AF. Sigma just changed their AF motor again with the new 35mm 1.2, so it will be night and say difference between the new and old 35mm.

I actually just got that lens and I can confirm its my fastest focusing sigma lens. It will give GM lenses a run for their money in terms of focus speed. Its a 35mm so honestly focus speed isn't even a requirement so its as fast as you can possibly want.

The sharpness is of course insane because anything sigma makes is super sharp and with sigma tradition, the lens is HEAVY and this time its actually a tad expensive for a sigma lens at least.
