Quite frankly I'm kind of tired from reading about test charts and what not, this is why I'm going to write about "why I chose" for my equipment collection. I'm sure some of you out there feel the same too (or... Am I alone o.O).
If you don't know me, I'm a big fan of the 1.8s because I don't use f1.4 much, or even at all so there's a cost saving benefit there, plus the difference is negligible after f2, so why did I choose the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art?
"I've always wanted a 35mm"
Well I've always wanted a 35mm <-- Impulse want!! and the ONLY reason is because I got lucky. Someone was selling the Sigma for $600, practically brand new and still under local warranty. The Nikon's is already $600+ brand new so it's a no brainer.
If it wasn't for that reason, I would have eventually bought the Nikon 1.8 version, even though the Sigma is worlds apart in terms of IQ and build quality.
This is just a short post, but there will be a Nikon 35mm f1.4G vs this Sigma post coming soon, so stay tuned!
