The one thing I miss most from my A6000/A6300 is the Sony Zeiss 24mm f1.8. It was an almost perfect combo of FL, speed, sharpness, rendering, color, contrast, bokeh, close MFD, etc. What it lacked was a body that could take further advantage of its quality at full resolution (as opposed to APS-C mode). I moved to FF (A7II) for many reasons, some of which included IBIS, low light performance, better resolving power, etc. Moving to full frame, I am currently using an adapted Canon 40mm f2.8,...

I currently shoot with a 5D (the first one). All I have right now is a 50/1.8 II that came with it when I bought it. It's fine, but I'm more comfortable with the 35mm focal length. I'm wondering, given that I don't readily have much cash to drop often, should I hold out and get the Sigma 35mm ART or settle for the 35mm F2 IS?I know eventually I'll get the Sigma anyway, but I'll be needing a 35mm soon and I can't make up my mind. Anyone have any common sense or just ideas to throw my way?

I recently bought a Nikon D750 with the 24-120 f/4 lens. I haven't used them enough yet to become very familiar with them, but I have read reviews on this lens and it seems most think it has some significant flaws. I would now like to get a very good prime lens that would compliment the 24-120. The lenses that I'm most interested in are the Sigma 35 1.4 Art lens, and the Sigma 50 1.4 Art lens. And to a lesser degree the Nikon 1.8, and Nikon 85 1.8. I can only afford to buy one now, and maybe...

Hi so i plan on getting a sigma art lens for wedding photography but im on a budget, caught between the 35mm sigma f1.4 and the 85mm f1.4. Both focal points are important to me. i was thinking of getting extension tubes with electronic contacts for the 35mm to make it an 85mm when i need it to. A cheaper alternative as im on a budget , i want to know if this is possible and the essentials i forego by doing this. do i get similar bokeh i would rather get on an 85mm sigma? does anyone have any...
I was gonna keep my lenses around for adapting to my new A7S2, but after using my Canon 50mm 1.4 I feel like it's time for an upgrade. I'd possibly keep around my 24-105mm but there's probably something better in the Sony line or a 3rd party brand I can get with time. The lenses i've been looking at are the: Zeiss Loxia 50mm f/2 Sony Sonnar T* FE 55mm f/1.8 Mitakon Zhongyi 50mm f/0.95 Zeiss Loxia 35mm f/2 Sigma 35mm f/1.4 The Sigma I would have to get an adapter for, but i've heard SOOO...

Newbie here in terms of membership as well as photography, so please bear with my apparent lack of in-depth knowledge in the field. So I recently purchased the Sigma 35mm f1.4 art lens and later the USB dock, anticipating that I could run into focus issues with my D810 (I know, I know, D810 is a bit rash for a newbie, but I swear that this is my only toy). Before the dock arrived, the lens had to be adjusted to +18 using the in-camera settings, which resulted in satisfactory sharpness for...

Hi People, First off, I wanna just say that even though I am a new member of the community, I have been checking out your forums for quite some time now to find a specific answer to my following question. I know all the data regarding subjects related, what I could really use now are impressions and your unbound feedback. I am considering going for some semi-pro gear now (from a 40D w/ 17-85 f4-5.6, 70-300 4-5.6), I am getting very passionate about this topic, in the future I might wanna go...

I was looking into differences between Canon's EF mount and Nikon's F mount and one difference was that most Nikon lenses use a physical lever on the camera mount to control the aperture. This is compared to Canon's EF mount which is 100% electronic with no moving parts on the mount. I know on many Nikon G lenses they use the physical lever on the mount. But do 3rd party lenses, like the Sigma ART series, control aperture completely electronically or do they use a physical lever?

Not sure if this is where to post this. Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 micro adjustment for a Canon 70D? Looking for anybody who has in camera instructions on how to perform this for my camera model specifically. I know they have a usb dock to purchase to do this, but it looks 1) Really confusing and 2) I just spent almost a grand on a lens, I shouldn't have to buy an accessory to fix the focusing. Thank you for any and all answers.
