Samples

Ok, will try to post my photos here:

I still have to try it out in better weather conditions, but I really like its crsiyness so far.

@Mistral75 Merci beaucoup de votre aide, c´est apprécié! Je montre les photo ici aussi. Meilleures salutations d´Allemagne.

About mentioning the sharpness only: This is to me the most important point. All arguments concerning faithful colour rendition are absolutely correct. But I can change that via software. But not the sharpness of the picture...

So I pointed this out in the first place.

But, frankly said, as I owe the other two 1,4s of Sigma too: I like these Sigma lenses, as their colour output is most satisfying and appealing to me.

But this one lens, the new "A" Line is a real pleasure to hold. Although it is composited of metal and synthetics it almost feels like a real ltd. lens. I can strobly recommend it by now. But I´ll hve to wait for fair weather ;-)

Best
Georg

Looks good. But sharp images with shallow DOF without decent bokeh is not an attractive attribute, IMHO. Most pople seem to always strive for better pictures in sharpness. When you finally get there, the next step is lens rendering, I feel.

Nice rendering, but looks big!

Thanks for sharing.

For those interested in seeing the Sigma in its native focal length, on this thread are some of My First Shots with it here on PF.

Bokeh doesn't look as horrendous as people are saying.

The images I have seen where the bokeh has been harsh have all been over sharpened/saturated/processed. The images that have only had moderate processing have all have very pleasing bokeh.

Not at all, it looks very nice to me. But a prime lens that's about the same size and almost twice the weight of my DA16-45? I think I'll rather take the FA31 (though that's even more out of range of my current budget...).

Same here. Would rather own the FA 31, maybe not quite as sharp but more character and better bokeh IMO, also smaller.

The bokeh is quite reminiscent of the Sigma 30mm 1.4 in my opinion. I don't think I'll be trading my FA31 for this...
