I want to try and provide as much info on what I have, what I'm looking for, what I want to use it for, everything so I can hopefully get the best recommendation.. Before I explain, just know that I'm not entirely the best with camera knowledge and hope to get some pros to help me out! I also don't understand ALL the lingo with lenses/cameras - just the basics. anyway, i have a canon 70D and the kit lens (18-55mm STM lens). I don't hate the lens necessarily but its just not providing me as...

I started playing around with my Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART on my 80D for video recently but couldn't past this focus issue I was running into. When it attempts to auto focus, it sounds like it's constantly getting "stuck" on the way, leading into this odd stutter sound that's picked up (very well, unfortunately) by the onboard mic. Anyone seen anything like this? Here's a (admittedly, bad) video. https://youtu.be/c7aHezMtrH4 I know focus noise is always an issue with setups like these, but this just...

Greeting y'all, I just upgraded to a Canon 6D Mark ii and my Sigma 35mm 1.4 art is now experiencing some issues with the camera. Shooting in live view causes the camera to shut down and diplays err 70, as well as some weird concentric circles being present. I know that there is a USB dock for the lens, but does anyone know if Sigma has released a fix via software update? Thanks.

Hi there.  I'm anticipating the release of the 6D Mark ii in my area, so right now I'm looking to get a lens capable of many scenarios such as automotive photography, portraits, street photography, landscapes, and astrophotography.   I'm typically inspired by photos from the following Instagram pages: SuperStreet, Speedhunters, and Petrolicious.   I was thinking of investing into Sigma 35mm F/1.4, as it's a wide-angle, but not so wide that it'd be atrocious to use for a single subject in...

I found a problem wih this lens and D810 trying to use AF in liveview. AF refuses to work completely. AF through viewfinder is ok. I had no problem with Nikon D800 and no problem with a recently bought Nikon D500. All other lenses I own work as expected including a Tamron 2.8 / 70-200. Any idea or experience?

Hey guys! Long story short: do I need a new body or would the Sigma 35mm 1.4 work well with the Sony A58 and improve the quality of my images? Here's more info: So I own a Sony A58 that I bought back in 2013 when I was quite a noob and not that interested in photography. I simply used it for my fashion blog. However, this year I started taking photography seriously and I'm enjoying it a lot. I am just struggling with low light photography. I don't know if it's the lens or the body, but I do...

I've always done on-location, outdoor photography. I had a client call me wanting to do a mini Easter shoot at her house with her 6 month old. The chilly outdoor temps are not going to work well for outdoors. What would I need to set up a little set inside of her home? I'm tempted to buy some kind of portable floor or backdrop with props of course, but what lighting would I need? I am open to any suggestions! I have a Canon Rebel t5i with a 35mm f/1.4 sigma art lens that I like using for...

HI I have Canon 80D. Crop sensor. I want prime lenses! I just bought my first prime lens canon 50mm 1.4 USM. Now this gives me 80mm equivalent so im not actually getting 50mm from the camera with this lens. I'm going to go for a 30-35mm lens in order to meet the equivalent of 56mm on my camera. Now here's my dilema... The bottom line is that I want the best images possible from my equipment. sharpness and image quality, the bokeh is a bonus to me but first must be definition in the image. Now...

Hi,  I noticed the following with my Sigma 35mm F1.4 A on a Canon 550D. 1. The AF image quality is identical to that MF if the subject is focused through screen. 2. The AF image quality is obviously  inferior through the viewfinder. 3. The same metering mode was used and the subject was placed at the centre of the frame, the shutter speed of #2 was slower than that of #1.  The two cropped images are: Screen AF  Viewfinder AF  The subject is about 15cm high and the lens was 550cm (5.5 meter)...

Dear All, I am totally new to the forums and I'd really love to get your kind opinions about a question that I'm really finding hard to unravel. I am professional photographer and use sony gear since the beginning. I currently own two A99 and an A7RII. I love the quality of the latter, I also had the opportunity to try the newest 35mm 50mm and 85mm 1.4 e mount lenses and I feel they're quite superior even than my a mount zeiss 85mm 1.4. But, I also fee that the A7RII isn't quite ready for...
