Just sold my Canon 50 1.4 on craigslist for $315.

I prefer the Sigma 35 1.4 to all the L lenses I have owned. Including the 135. I have had no issues with the AF but lots of issues with the AF failing on my Canon lenses. It really leaves my 5d mkiii.

That camera looks amazing. I love the leather strap. Mostly I am jealous Nikon gets yet another 50mm.

Exact same thing happened to me last week. I just got it back from Canon $147 total to get fixed. Still cheaper than the 50L which I had but didn't like.

Sold my 1.2 and returned to the 1.4. 1.2 had terrible CA and was very soft. I am desperately awaiting a new 50 from canon or Sigma.

Yes. It does look kind of dated.

I have the sigma 35 1.4 with an 85 1.8 and I couldn't be happier when taking pics of my boys. Though I love the 50 focal length, it sits on the self a lot because the IQ just isn't close. The 135 is my telephoto and it is amazing

I would still definitely get the Sigma over the Canon. Even if the Canon was cheaper the Sigma.

Were there ever any press invites?

I would buy a new 50 in a heartbeat. Canon or sigma.

I just bought the 135L and love it. What I really need is a 50mm that is as good as Sigma 35 1.4.

Maybe I will get my 60d back out of my bag. That lens sounds awesome!

Excellent review. I couldn't agree more. Simply incredible lens.

I picked up this lens a couple months ago. It is on par or perhaps better than my 135l in sharpness, color and contrast. It truly is a phenomenal lens. It makes my canon 50 1.4 look like a joke. The bokeh is superb. I have enjoyed it so much I wrote Sigma asking for a 50 in the same line. This was their response:

Hello Shane,
                The new Art, Sports and Contemporary line are the way of our lenses to come, when and if the 50mm 1.4 is updated it will be in the same vain as the 35mm 1.4.
Yours Truly,

I have the 70-200 f4 IS with a 5d mkiii and it does fine. However I picked up a 135L and now that is all I ever use. The shots just turn out so gorgeous. I don't mind missing a shot here or there if the ones I am getting with the 135L are so much better.
