Although more luminous and more expensive Canon 50mm F1.2 does not reach the level of sharpness of the Sigma 50mm F1.4 Art, even when both are compared at F1.4.Canon 50mm F1.2L at this time is more expensive, and worse sharpness than the Sigma Art.Sigma 50mm Art 1.2?
Look at this comparison between Sigma 50mm Art, and Canon 50mm L:
When friends ask me about Canon 50mm lenses I answer the following:
The 50mm F1.2 model only has decent sharpness when used at F1.4.
The model 50mm F1.4 only has decent sharpness when used in F1.8.
The 50mm F1.8 model only has decent sharpness when used in F2.5.
The 50mm F2.5 model only has decent sharpness when used in F2.8
That seems rather ironic, but that's what I see.
Moreover, Sigma 50mm Art can be used at F1.4 with optimum picture quality and the bokeh is beautiful.
My apologies if you thought I was trying to suggest the 50 1.2L is sharper than the 50 Art. I don't (and never thought it ever was.)
