  • Summary: The Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art is distinctly large, heavy and expensive for its type. However this is more than made up for by its fast silent autofocus, solid build quality, and absolutely outstanding optics. Overall it stakes a very serious claim to be the best autofocus 50mm prime on the market right now.
  • Pros: Stunning image quality - super sharp, minimal CA and practically no distortion, Impressive flare resistance, Generally attractive rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds, Fast, silent, and accurate autofocus, Excellent build quality
  • Cons: Large and heavy for a 50mm F1.4 prime, Relatively expensive for its class, No weather sealing

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens

The Digital Picture
4 August 2008
  • Excerpt: It is hard not to be drawn to a fast prime - the short, fat, solid-feeling lens with very low-light capability is very attractive. So, I don't find it surprising that the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens has received a lot of attention in the early days of its availability.
