  • 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.

Sharp overall, but focus issues

Joseph Brewster, B&H Photo
1 January 2015
  • Excerpt: I was on the fence about getting an 85mm for my DX, but since the sigma 50mm comes close to that on a crop sensor, I decided to spend less and see if I would be happy with the focal length and quality in order to get the 1.4 I wanted on a budget.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Inconsistent focus

  • 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.

Very sharp

  • Excerpt: I got this with a very decent deal. With this price, there is nothing to complain about. I also compared with 50L F1.2, the difference is really minor. Only concern is focusing, which really depends on your camera body. It works perfectly well on my 6d.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Focusing Issue

  • Excerpt: Still not quite the perfect low light lens, but pretty close for the price. Pleasant Bokeh w/ my 60d. -Perfect body would be full frame or larger -Perfect lens would be constant f1.2 zoom ... both consumer size. Bravo, Sigma for including a case & hood.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

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.

  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Very Sharp In Center
