Reason for selling: Just got a sigma 35mm 1.4... up until today, this lens was one of my most used lenses... It has been amazingly sharp for me on my 60d and is a joy to use.
This lens was bought second hand about a month after the original buyer bought it. I purchased it on 8/30/2010. The original seller included his original receipt from adorama and a blank warranty card. I filled out the warranty card, not expecting to sell it, and now the warranty has expired anyways. If you would like to see samples of photos taken with this lens, just ask. I've got plenty.
and here is a totally unedited photo i took with this lens a few days ago...
*side note... i bought this lens on another forum from a member there, who happens to be a member here... didnt make the connection until a day ago when i was looking back at this to see when i bought it.

You're going to love that 35 1.4. It is truly an astounding lens, provided you like the way that it draws. I've managed to resist buying one, despite 35 being my preferred focal length, but I may have to give in soon.
