If you have been following my discussion on the Nikon 28mm after 2 test I was a little disappointed in my findings. This morning I went back out and ran another test against a very good copy of the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art series. Now this is my second Sigma lens and I did get lucky to find a good copy of it.
I was out early this morning to beat the heat which here in Pheonix its been well over 100 degrees so its early light but I did get a test off that is better on the Nikon , now let me add here I found something very odd at 1.8 and I will start posting images and point out one anomaly that makes no logical sense when the Sigma does not show it at the same 1.8 aperture and given the Nikon is a wider lens it really makes no sense it does not carry a area that is very close to critical focus are. I will clearly point that out but reports of smearing seems to be the case on the Nikon.
First some full frame images which are very close to each other.
