  • Summary: I received and subsequently returned three consecutive copies of this lens from Amazon.com. Every copy had a very significant "back-focus" problem at f/4. When focusing on an object at f/4, the object in question will be slightly out of focus, while objects behind it will be in focus. For example, when focusing on a person's face, their eyes will be somewhat blurry and their ears will be in focus.

  • Summary: I have used Sigma's 50/1.4 on both Canon and Nikon mounts the old Minolta 1.7 and Canon and Nikon's own version. Sony is the worst of them. Sony is trying to get into the pro market but will need to do a much better job. This lens is way to soft in the corners, the focusing ring is not very comfortable to work with and and it is slow to AF on the A350 and 7xi bodies I tried it on. I know Sony can make some decent lenses but this is far from it.

AF == - nicht immer besonders schnell - neigt stellenweise trotz genügend Licht zum "pumpen" Das absolut Fatale : -------------------- Der AF sitzt so gut wie nie richtig (Backfocus) -> Bei ca der Hälfte der Bilder wird der weiter...
