Personally I cannot wait to purchase mine. I will when there is no backlog...no hurry.
Gee.. I have 30 days to return it at B&H for full refund. I am sure it will be a great lens tho.
One thing you can bet. I am not going to over measurebate it and spend the rest of my life here complaining about it...I will be out creating images!!!!!
...but hey...I loved my original Sigma 50mm f/1.4. Had a GREAT copy...just sold it for $500! LOL...$100 more than I paid for it.as they have been backorder for a while and I had a colleague who loved the lens and wanted my copy!!!!..Hated to see it go...but I cannot justify owning that and the new one....WHAH!!!!!
I would also like to read Justin's review before purchase, as I know that that should be coming soon!
Oh, then you're gonna love this: Popular Photography apparently did a test on the new lens and concluded it was not as good as the last 50mm f/1.4. I nearly coughed up breakfast when I read about that!
I have some recent baby photos!
Hi Infared, I like it, as I like a lot of your Images, I've tried to think on why, other than your Images are always technically well done, I think it's the approach, you present your Images a little outside the Box, well, inside the Black Box actually, but they always make me think, which I like.
So on the fence about cancelling until issues and supplies are all worked out...But keep imagining this will be a great newborn lens...
Sure hope I'm not getting one of the lenses the OCD folk are tweaking to death and returning. The stories here of lens churn are revolting.
It seems that the recent competition for Sigma has propitiated that Canon launch prices closer to market reality. If the picture is as good as it looks on the MTF chart, these two lenses are sales success.
Sure the EF-S looks a good price, but the 16-35 is a 17-40 replacement, at 150% the price. Not saying I feel the 16-35 is particularly expensive, and I very much doubt Sigma had anything to do with it at all, just pointing out it is 150% more than the lens it is replacing with less zoom range.
Upgraded from the original Simga 50 to the Art 50…. Have a much higher hit percentage on the autofocus, and the image is just very sweet… I would recommend upgrading (the size isn't that much more in reality, unless it just won't fit in your camera bag).Stop..stop...I have to buy a new truck for work....stop!!!!!! LOL!
B&H is going to send me both the 50 Art along with the older Sigma 50 so I can compare them side by side. I don't own the Sigma dock, and so I am wondering how much of a factor that is going to be to getting accurate AF from the newer lens.
Do I need to have them send me the dock, too?
