SIGMA 50MM A LENS F1.4 DG HSM CANON EF MT
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.
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.
There are 2 main points in each of the Pro and Con categories:
1. The lens is tack sharp, sharper than any of the half dozen L lenses I've used. Seriously, it's very sharp.
2. The chromatic aberration is lower than any L series lens I've used as well. The Canon 50mm 1.4 L has major chromatic aberration issues. But this thing barely ever gives me anything. I pretty much never see anything on the outer edges. But of course reflective surfaces or direct sun hitting the sensor can def give you some chromatic aberration, it's nothing like other lenses I've used. Very happy with the low chromatic aberration in this lens.
1. This thing is a brick. It's larger and heavier than any 50mm I've ever seen.
2. It doesn't have weather sealing and doesn't seem to have the most durable build. Don't get me wrong, the construction feels really good. Nothing rattles or makes noise, and the focus is as fast as you could reasonably expect. But because of it's heavy weight, I get the feeling if I ever drop this on from waist level on cement, it might shatter the glass. But again, it doesn't feel cheap or specifically breakable.
I've heard other people say they had focusing issues. I had a minor issue, but my Canon 5D Miii has lens calibration. I adjusted it one single notch and now it's fine. I don't have any problem with the focus unless there is really low light, just like nay other lens. What else.. the distortion is very low, although that's probably most 50mms. The bokeh, if you're super picky, is nice-- it's smooth and doesn't feel chunky.
I recently bought the companion Sigma 70-300mm and am quickly gaining an appreciation for the Art Lens series. Overall the image looks fantastic. My final ruling is that while the build leaves a bit to be desired, it makes up for it and then some in excellent image quality. I really do love this thing.
