SLRGear has completed their review of the highly anticipated Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art series lens. We’re very happy to read that the lens just may live up to the hype created by Sigma themselves.
“The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art is the most exciting lens we’re likely to review this year. All competing lenses from Canon and Nikon fell short when compared to the resolving power of the 50mm Art. We haven’t (yet) tested the very best from Zeiss, but we are confident Sigma will trounce it in one key area: price. This difference is likely to be a yawning chasm. Our expectation for pricing on this lens is for something at least a bit less than Canon’s 50mm f/1.2 L, which goes for $1,700; despite a variety of rumors and no official price for the Sigma yet, we’re expecting it’ll be less than that.”
Pricing for the lens is expected to be announced on or around April 11, 2014.
