True, and I've only owned one Sigma (the 12-24 II) and while I didn't find anything wrong with it, I rarely used the AF and certainly didn't use it for bokeh. The bummer with it was when I went to sell it and received a fraction of what I paid. I fear this will happen with the 50mm, and I love my 50L and I'm not sure the Sigma will be that much better for portraiture. For everything else, the 24-70 II is more than fine at 50mm. Decisions, decisions...She is gorgeous!Thanks, Menace, and it's shots like these that have me thinking that I should just cancel the Sigma 50 f/1.4 pre-order. I'm perfectly happy with the 50L.
I know the feeling
You can always put a red rubber band on the Sigma
I'm gonna try to be cool and NOT have this new Sigma on pre-order. Wish me luck
