Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art: Next week at CP+?
« on: February 04, 2014, 08:54:11 PM »
Will we see this next week?  I had just broken down and bought the Sigma 35 Art 2 for Christmas, barely a month before this development announcement.  I had wanted to wait for a Sigma 50 Art, but I like the 35 so well I honestly can't say I regret it at all.  If this new 50 does live up to some of the hype I may still be tempted.

Would a 50 and a 35 be too redundant?  Would I be better off waiting for the Sigma 135mm they also are supposedly working on?

I have the sigma 35 too. Great Lens! I just sold my 50L because I plan on getting the new sigma 50 1.4. I don't think its to close but it also depends what you need it for. I use the 50 for wedding portraits but then would use the 35 as a walk around lens during the party, group shots etc... I'm wondering when this lens is going to come out....

I don't think that they would be redundant.  I see the 35mm lens being a great walk around lens and the 50mm good for people/portraits.  But, like Dylan777 said, only you can answer that.

3 more days, or 6  :D Let's hope they get it out into the shelves quickly.

35 and 50 is two of the lenses I have always had in my bag. For me, they are very different, and give very different looks, so I would keep both. If you also have a 2470 or something similar, it might be enough with one of those. Depends on your uses. I'll always have a place and use for both.

Sigma has updated the lens page. Two interesting points:

According to Sigma, this is "the best 50mm in the history of photography".

The weight is a whopping 815g!

Well I guess the Zeiss Otus is a 55mm not 50mm.  The rest of the 50mm competition is not all that great so they may have a valid claim if the MTF charts are true.  Here is to hoping it comes in at a sub $900 street price.  if it does I will pre-order.

Ha ha. Wow!  They really feel like they have something there. I am eager to see!

I'm put off by the weight. Not your random walk around or casual throw-in in your bag.

My 200 f2.0 is my favorite walk around, so this will be
a lightweight option. Now I can't wait!  ;D
