Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM review by JimG

  • Summary: I have read all the issues users have had with inconsistent focus on this lens. These reviews were from 2007~2013. It is now mid 2015 and I have not had any focus issues at all with this lens. Focus is fast and dead on. I am guessing Sigma corrected the focus issue or I got lucky.
  • Pros: Very sharp, Excellent IQ, Fast to focus, Solid build
  • Cons: Low light focus sometimes off

Better Than Expected!

  • Excerpt: Just like everyone else who considered buying this lens, I was very weary of the autofocus issues. However, those issues seemed to be related to multi-point autofocus as opposed to just using single or zone AF.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy

Canon or Sigma?

  • Excerpt: I do professional Videography and some small amounts of photography and have to say Ive used both lenses from canon and sigma. The canon is smaller in comparison to this model but the pull on the focus ring has no weight behind it. Feels cheap and almost toyish.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I used it to photograph a band at a bar with almost no stage lighting. I shot at the bar the week before with my f/2.8 24-70mm lens and had to set ISO to 16,000 to get proper exposure without a flash. Shooting the same bar with this lens I was able to dial the ISO down to 6400 @ f/1.4
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
