Dave, you did not notice the noise and DR differences between both? I use Iridient, no problems.

Hellraiser: The lens is a bit outdated. Time to bump its specs a bit? f1.8?

seriously, what Sony sharpness?

Mateus1: Nice camera but... same old soft lens at F2 and portraiture distances, no distance marks on the lens, stupid placement of AF-L/AE-L buttons (too far from the thumb - it useless for back AF focusing) and Q button too, and same hopeless 4 years old eyepiece without eyecup attachement.

Hope X-E3 will not have these issues.

the portrait samples look sharp to me

Mihai Muntean: #10 Find yourself in situations of great human suffering and be sure to have at least one person crying in your shot...

Shoot that scene with a RF camera too, red dot preferably - top award material.

Derek Dean: A lovely group of sample images that do a fine job of showcasing this lens. Well done.

Yes, the set of images shows NOT to use the lens at the long end. Very informative at that.

villagranvicent: What exactly is a Leica-Style portrait?

Plus plenty of spherical aberration and low contrast coating, voila!

OlyPent: Reviewing Leica is like the auto magazines that constantly review $500,000 cars. Next to zero of the readers will ever own one, but it's interesting to read about them.

especially if it's a $500K car that runs slower than a Toyota.

skanter: Fixed LCD - useless camera. I would not use this on the street if it were free, let alone $7500.

Skanter, with that size and price, you're an easy prey on the street, but the SL also works wonder as a self defense tool

Leica only deserves the Platinum award, which DPR doesn't have.

garyknrd: Sounds like a Pentax review. Except for the price?

the K-1 has better sensor, the SL got the red dot. Your choice.

ttran88: I'll just stick to my 18-55mm "kit" lens. Perfect size, build, OIS, good optics (if you get a good copy).

Elliot, 'good copy' and 'bad copy' apply to all brands. I've got bad samples from Zeiss (ZE 25/2, ZF 35/2), Canon (many 24-70 L II), Pentax (DFA 28-105, DFA 24-70, DA 35/2.4), Sigma (new 85 Art was severely decentered and replaced) and Fuji 18-55. It's common these days. Some will notice, some won't. The best way to tell is shoot cityscape/landscape and set the focus at infinity mark - see if the left/right part of the frame has equal sharpness.

In reply to:

Contra Mundum: It's not a bad lens, just soft, suffers from spherical and chromatic aberrations. But why is it priced so high? An optically better Canon EF-M 22/2 retails for $249, and was often available for $100 grey market.

because the sensors on the M sucked?

Nick Brundle - Photography: Stop using those silly adapters and mount this on the Nikon D810.
Then we can really see who the champion is

LOL seems like both Sony and NIkon fanboys are getting irritated by the Sigma,

In reply to:

mxx: I'm confused. Is this a test of the Sigma, or a comparison test between the Sigma and the Sony?

You couldn't notice it is both?

Frankly, 24MP without AA filter is more than enough for most people esp those who rarely print and only post photos in social medias.

In reply to:

Eric Glam: I would call this lens an "F4 lens", which happens to do OK with wider apertures.

Canon 85L has some glowings at f1.2 though sharp. The Sigma is contrasty and tack sharp at 1.4. The corners are not bad too.
