Top Customer Reviews
Overall I would highly recommend this lens to anybody who wants a really professional quality lens on a bit of a budget.
I will update this when I have had more experience with the lens.
After having used the lens for the past few months I thought I'd make a few more points about it and upload some pictures to the user image gallery.
The lens construction is really nice, the thermally stable composite material feels extremely stable and more like a metal than a polycarbonate.
The focus ring is really thick, its wider than any of my fingers. The focus ring is also very grippy and nicely damped, which makes it easier to nail your focus evertime. Overall manual focus is a very pleasing experience.
The lens did not need a single bit of AFMA, it was dead on with all of my tests right out of the box.
Vignetting is minimal and completely gone by f2.
Chromatic aberrations are hardl there, if the are its usually less than one or two pixels of fringing.
Autofocus is incredibly fast, near instant in some cases.
In focus areas are tack sharp, even at f/1.4
The bokeh is super blurry and very pleasing.
While the depth of field is very narrow at f/1.4, you can easily stop it down and not have to worry about the out of focus areas getting jagged since the 9 aperture blades keep things smooth.
Its crazy sharp, awesome bokeh, no distortion or vignette that a human being would notice. All lenses distort a little but any larger and this lens would be weird, its construction is better than canon L lenses its well balanced with a FF DSLR.
I shoot weddings and its on my camera 90% of the time. it absolutely blows every 50mm out of the water including the 1.2. If you need more bokeh than 1.4 use a longer focal length. If you need more sharpness there isnt anything that autofocuses at 50mm that beats this.
Update on durability: I dropped then lens while shooting a wedding. It fell hard about three feet onto a marble floor. Something inside of it came loose. Sent it into Sigma and it was 150 to get it fixed.
So when I read reviews on this lens, I knew it had to replace my Canon 50mm 1.4. The Canon is good. Not great, but good. Sharp. Fast. Terrible at f/1.4. Ok at f/1.6. Starts to get good at f/2.0. It's noisy when focusing, and the minimum focus distance isn't great.
The Sigma improves on all of these things, a tremendous amount. Super sharp, even at f/1.4. I have never used a sharper lens. It's crazy. Even the corners are sharper than the canon was at the center! And this is on a full frame camera.
The focus is fast and quiet. It did need a few adjustments to be spot on. The Sigma dock and about a half hour dialed everything in nicely. I really like the ability to set different focal adjustments at different subject differences. I needed that, as everything but the closest distance was off, and by differing amounts.
I also like that it has a pretty close minimum focusing distance. Still not macro, of course, but an extra 4 inches over the Canon makes a huge difference when trying to compose up close.
The only knock is how big and heavy this is for a 50mm f/1.4. It's about twice as big as the canon, and over twice as heavy. Makes walking around with it definitely more noticeable. But I'm a big guy. I sometimes walk around with the sigma 150-600. So this is a cake walk compared to that.
I will certainly be buying more into Sigma's art line after this.
I have been using this lens more than any other lens in my bag, and I wish I could give it 6 stars. It's easily my go to lens for walking around. Normally I go with a zoom lens for the versatility while walking, but it's hard to pass on the sharpness of this amazing piece of glass.
I have attached a few photos that show off this lens.
