  • Excerpt: bought this for my Sony A77m2, quiet, fast, accurate auto focus, manual focus ring moves smoothly, a little on the hefty size, nice lens hood included, I like that it can be kept accurate via the Sigma USB Dock

  • Excerpt: I use this on my Canon 6d. This is by far the sharpest lens I've ever used. It doesn't focus as sharp on the outer edges. When you use your outer focus points, it struggles to keep up with Canon's L series lenses.

  • Summary: This is a real world review of the sigma and more of a hands on for the Zeiss as I don't actually own it but I did take pictures with both lenses in the same setting at 1.4 on my a99 to develope my opinion.

great lens

  • Summary: Extremely sharp, which I expected. The bokeh is sometimes (rarely) a little busy, and in that respect distinctly inferior to my old 50mm nikon f/1.8 if there is a variegated background to start with, like middle distance leaves or grass. (I do a lot of nature photography.

Beautiful lens with disappointing autofocus

John Pavlish, Amazon
5 September 2014
  • Summary: I was weary to buy this lens due to many review of the autofocusing not behaving. I bought 2 copies to hope that one would work with my camera. I noticed within the two copies that one was softer than the other. The autofocus is also not super at low light situations.

  • Excerpt: This is a very good 50mm 1.4 lens. I use it with the 5d3. I have not made any adjustment with the USB dock yet as I got the WRONG mount! But out of the box, the lens is very sharp. Great color and contrast. If you buy this lens, I hope you use it at 1.4 to maximize its greatness.
