Summary: A fine lens that works well on a full frame sensor camera. I shoot Canon bodies and this works very nicely, is compact and is fast. The only caveat is the lens hood screws on the front barrel it is a shallow hood but with it in place the user cannot place the lens cover on to protect the lens between uses. All my questions were answered by Sigma at their site promptly and politely. Your milage may vary.
Summary: I needed a 50 mm prime that also had true macro capabilities to round out my "outside" lenses. I have a Canon MPE 65 5x macro, which is a fantastic lens, but not at suited to outdoor close-up photography. At first, I was hesitant to buy a non-Canon lens for my 5d, but, since Canon doesn't make a true 1x macro in 50 mm, I decided to give this little guy a try. I am not sorry that I did! The colors are great, and the AF works quite well at close range.
