That 35mm f1.2 Art's bokeh has an odd quality about it (when used at "portrait distance", at least), and the wider angle makes sure you get lost of background to accentuate that. I'd be more drawn to the odd bokeh quality of the old Nikkor 35mm f1.4 (the really old manual focus former speed king), for you can call that odd bokeh "character", and for this Sigma to me it is just uneasy.
Odd is okay, as long as it'd be pleasing for one's taste, and for sure, monster lenses are not for everybody.
I'm looking forward if this "leaked roadmap" https://forum.opticallimits.com/showthre...6#pid48466
has some truth in it. If so, then I would really like to try out Nikon's 85/1.2 and 35/1.2 although they wont be much smlaller or lighter than the Sigma.
What I can say about the 85/1.8 S: It's not sharper than my Sigma 85 Art @f/1.8 But while trying it, I was under the growing impression, that the Sigma focuses more precisely. I want to look a bit more into that, because that would also be odd.
