hmmmmm....I am a huge fan of my Sigma 35mm Art on my 5DIII....LOVE that lens. I have to say...after seeing the comparison to the 50L I can actually see some photogarphers preferring the rendition of the 50L...especially for portraiture, perhaps. You better REALLY love it though as it comes at a hefty price premium. (If I REALLY need background smearing I go to the 85L, when possible). ..I own the original Sigma 50mm f/1.4, and I have really been happy with my copy from the stand point of build, size, weight, price and general image quality. Couldn't see paying for the 50L at the time (as I have the 85L)....and would not go near the other Canon 50mm's...but I would love to see a comparison of the new Sigma 50mm vs. the old Sigma 50mm. I know the new one should totally kill it in the corners.... I will probably buy the new one when all the hoopala dies down....and maybe save $50.
This sure is fun.
