    Hello Matt, I actually own the Sigma 35 f1.4 Art since August 2014. And yes I can confirm your review results. Especially when using it for landscape with focus on infinity I was wondering why the background is not that crisp and sharp as it is when using it for near objects. But when I focussed manually It worked just perfect. So after testing around a bit I calibrated the lens from near to infinity focus with the USB Dock and Sigma Optimization Pro Software. I found out that the lens has a small front focus (correction +1) in the near and a significant backfocus at infinity beginning at a ~1,5 m object distance (correction -6). After correcting it I am very happy with it. Bye the way I really like your reviews and cannot wait for your review on the new Nikon 300 f4 PF (perhaps my next travel tele).
