what a wonderful story. thats heartbreaking.
You feel that your $3,000 lens makes this particular $600 lens obsolete? OK, I will be sure to buy that $3,000 lens, and the camera to put it on. I don't want to carry anything obsolete.
Rational thought says it is rude to call other people's lenses "obsolete" because you found one lens and camera combination that suits your particular needs. Rational thought also says that there are still significant benefits to having f/1.4 primes vs. one giant 3.15 lb. lens that is f/2 and not f/1.4. Rational thought also recognizes that some photographers are and always will be prime lens shooters. Rational thought also says that $3,000 is outside of many photographers' lens budgets, no matter how much of a bargain it is for you.
The Tamron knocks this for six. Absolutely amazing. Hence the discount, the second so far scince the Tamron came out.
I really don’t like Sigma E-mount lenses with their in built adapter.
I imagine that this lens feels very unbalanced on a Sony. It's a weighty lens, and the built-in adapter section puts it out further from the camera.
Still not tempting me away from the Tamron...
Are you talking about the Tamron 28-75 f2.8 or their 35mm version ? I've read some great reviews on that one over Fred Miranda's page.
The Tamron 35mm 1.4, my friend just bought one and it’s stunning. I just prefer the feel of the Tamron’s in hand to the Sigmas too, but hey that’s a preference.
That Tamron 35 is a great lens , but to fair it's a newer lens. However for the price the Sigma 35 cannot be beat.
I commented earlier re the Tamron, saying it knocked the Sigma for six. Thinking about it though, and accepting your comment about being newer, it's more than that. Quite honestly, when I started using the Tamron I was astounded. I couldn't believe that any lens for the price it comes in at could be that good. Outstanding? Astonishing? Yes, and to be truthful, it seems to have changed a lot of what I am doing in photography because I find myself looking for excuses to use it and redesigning projects to some extent so that I can.
