Review summary from DPReview

DPReview Tested August 2008
This lens essentially redefines its class, and for once the results really live up to the marketing hype.
Andy Westlake Andy Westlake


The Sigma 50mm 1.4 has smooth out-of-focus backgrounds, improved sharpness at large apertures, and lessened vignetting due to its large lens barrel. It's a far better portrait lens on APS-C than legacy primes designed for 35mm film, as well as an extremely competent standard on 35mm full-frame.

Reasons to buy

  • Class-leading image quality
  • Relatively low vignetting even at wide apertures on full frame
  • Reasonably fast and positive autofocus
  • Very good build quality

Things to consider

  • Large and heavy for a 50mm F1.4
  • Expensive

Suggested for

Those looking for a sharp, fast normal lens with quick autofocus and good build quality -- especially APS-C camera owners in search of the perfect portrait lens.

Not suggested for

Anyone who wants their prime lenses to be small and lightweight.
