  • Excerpt: I recently purchased this Sigma lens because a friend of mine asked me to take her daughters senior pictures. I have NEVER been asked to do such an important job before because I'm basically a soccer mom photographer, taking photos to use for our end of year banquet slide show and so other kids...

Mixed Results

  • Excerpt: I truly wanted to like this lens, but in the end the CA on it was what led me to return it.As a background, I love my Sigma 50mm 1.4 (non-Art) lens. That lens performs even better than the Canon 50mm 1.2 in terms of focus speed and CA control.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Can't help falling in love with this lens

  • Excerpt: - This lens is tack sharp, quick focus. I compared it with Nikon 85mm f1.4 side by side, as sharp, as good for 2/3 of the money, I would say it is slightly sharper in the center. This lens just basically add magic to your photos. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Thanks B&H for great customer service

  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy, Slow Focus

exactly as advertised -- and that's good

  • Excerpt: My primary reason for buying this lens is the f/1.4 aperture. That means that it has to deliver the goods WIDE OPEN. And it absolutely does. Contrast is striking and bokeh is buttery. It may not make ugly people beautiful. But it'll definitely help.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Sharp. Excellent value

  • Excerpt: Bought this lens for use in portrait photography. For the cost - excellent. I have used it on 3 sessions and a bunch of my own "for fun" work. Satisfied with image quality and lens performance. No need for me to spend twice the amount I paid for this for the top Canon 85mm. This does the job.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Heavy
