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.
Stop down to 5.6 or 8 and you get an extremely crisp and clear image from center to corners. Color seems to be rendered subtly and naturally (unlike the Zeiss 50mm I used to own, which seemed to oversaturate the image). As an architectural and real estate photographer, I use it mostly at f/8 and f/11 and have yet to notice any hiccups in focus, nor any chromatic aberration. Manual focus (which I use sometimes) is smooth and precise.
It's not a light lens...if you're looking for a compact, featherweight 50mm (there are plenty of options out there), this isn't what you want. It feels solid, as if it were hewn from a chunk of magnesium alloy. It has that strong tank-like nature which the heavier Nikon lenses possess...it seems strong enough to handle some rugged use (i.e. a drop or two, poor weather, etc...).
I'd feel very comfortable recommending this lens to anyone who's looking for a solid performer in the 50mm range.
The good news is that the Sigma support is the best. I Emailed my concern to them. They asked me to send the lens back to them. They re-calibrated it back in their shop and sent it back to me within a few days.
This lens is now my go to lens for all indoor sports.
