More Samples from Sigma 35 1.4

We had dinner out and I took with me the D600 and Sigma 35 1.4, which is becoming my walkaround combination. So here are a few more samples from the Sigma.

I really like the tantalizing quality of the bokeh.  In my preliminary review, I mentioned that I haven't seen onion bokeh (which can happen when a lens has an aspheric element) in a real world shot.  However, I managed to create a test shot that had one:




The onion pattern is faint enough that I personally don't find it distracting.  And again, I have to emphasize this was a test shot.  I haven't seen it in a real world shot but now I know it's possible.  No big deal.

Anyway, here are a few more shots with the Sigma.
