Why not have a canon compatible radio like the indra and rovelight? Bought the indra 500lc and loving it.

Just bought one today. Somehow my dealer seems to get sharp copies of all the lenses that I bought from them. Love this lens, not as heavy as I thought it would be. Actually, I like the feel of this lens as compared to the f4 IS.

As expected, vignetting is extreme at 2.8, but +1 comp seems to make it better. I haven't upload the latest lens correction from Canon. Will do that tonight.

The auto focus is amazing. Nearly silent. I already have ideas of what type of photos for the extreme vignetting. Of course I will shoot this lens at 2.8 most of the time.

Great lens Canon!

The Canon still rules, second to none.

Not a Nikon shooter, but I do have the Nikon DC 135mm and I will definitely get this lens for there is no Canon equivalent. I can get a D750 second mint for dirt cheap. Lens first, Nikon body later.

I bring my pelican carry on case and abus cable lock, lock my pelicans with master locks and lock the handle with the abus to whatever object I was near like tables etc. When I rent a car, I put the locked pelican in the trunk and the abus cable lock around trunk hinges.

One can almost always find a better camera in the second hand market or manufacturer refurbished. Overall Sony and K-1 deemed best, but how much system depth and lens selection compare to Canikon?

Deliverator: Awesome camera. But man... the bokeh on that 135mm f/2D DC is just... wow...

You don't need a d5 for it. I have the lens since 2010.

abi170845: Wouldn't a person be more interested in buying quality lenses than a DSLR?

What I am saying is there is a bunch of "pro" bodies on sale second mint etc that has lost so much of their value, go and check how much a mint d810 or like new with warranty cost? Compare that to the price of 1.4 G series lenses.

Lee should also make reverse grads and strip filters for the sw150.

Okay, how about battery life? I get over 1000 shots with my dslr. Do you offer radio trigger for flash? Third party TTL flash from phottix etc? Ultra wide lens like the Canon 11mm zoom? How is your after sales service and spare parts? or is this part of BATA (Buy and throw away) product?

Hibiscusbloom: Maybe I am just ignorant but why are they putting in so much resources in making a 35mm lens? They are getting not getting any smaller and remain big and chunky. A PJ's lens should always be small and as light as possible.

get a leica then.

dynamics4u: Dear DP-Review: Thanks for a truely excellent lense comparison (&comparison tool). Very objective.

Dear readers, I did the jump over the $$$ fence of the EF 35mm f1.4 Lii one day prior to my trip to Scottland end of last year as I knew I wanted to have a high performance lense for the low light indoor images in some of the Wiskey Distilleries.
Low Light, available indoor light images with this lense have not been in this nor in the D.Abott review recently, nor are images simple to find on the web on this lense, yet.
For the sake of sharing with the community find some examples here:
http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/5583205170

Note 1: All Images Not postprocessed, without Flash, without tripod
Note 2: The Wiskey Casks with RAW in Lr and with Dark-Contrast variation, blew my mind what the EOS6D and 35mm could achieve, as one can see back wall (lighten up) or vary the DOF effect of the casks perspective depth via adjusting (darken down). Better than human eye.
Enjoy

Exactly! I am STILL waiting for a copy to pop up at my local store, I am in Jakarta Indonesia and the sole distributor Datascrip has been extremely lacking updates to new Canon products such as the M10, the G9X, the G5X, I think they better just let somebody else import Canon products. In Singapore it has been out sins mid October 2015!2015! 3 months ago!

A lot of people are missing the point. It is not all about sharpness. If one is going to buy the Canon 35mm Mk2, it is for shooting wide open under low light or to stop motion, I don't see the point of using this lens under good light. Why spend all that money for an 1.4 if not using it at that aperture 95% of the time.

Thus, it is also the focusing performance, at 1.4 under low light and less than ideal light(indoors etc). So we must compare the focusing performance of the Canon against Sigma and Tamron under low light and the focusing accuracy of all lenses under real life condition.

maximme: this review convinced me to get the Sigma today !

When you get your Sigma, try it under low light such as indoors.
