Sigma has produced some really fine lenses over the past few years, including the 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM (which we liked a lot when we reviewed it in 2008) and the 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM. But the 35mm F1.4 DG HSM may possibly be its best yet. In fact it's one of those rare lenses for which finding any fault seems almost churlish, so good is its overall performance.

Newer Canon camera bodies for measurement?
I'm actually very interested to know why the canon lens tests are still based on 1ds Mk 3 or 5D mark II, both of which are quite old models, while Nikon has already started using D800.
Or is DxO expecting very close performance between 5D mk 3 and these models?

Re: Newer Canon camera bodies for measurement?
Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.
Your question is very relevant: we are about to review 90 lenses mounted on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and the results are amazing...
Stay tuned !
