you know I've gone full circle I really really wanted it and now I don't know.

is the Sigma 50 going to be on par with the Canon 100 L or is it new standard?

I have sharp lenses.

I am in no way anticipating that price. Furthermore I'm not letting a leaked faux price determine my desire. I have nothing to base this upon but I anticipate Sigma starting this lens near the $999-1099  USD range, a premium over the 35 and a pricing zone no other 50 fits into, well one with AF that is.

I'm not sure I get the comparison between a 50/1.4 and a 100/2.8  ???

I'll bust out my depth of field calculator.... and it's broken. 

I suppose my point is that if the 50 and the 100L at a similar depth of field are equal in sharpness and the pettiness of the bokeh... I may pass.  I realize they are different focal lengths with different innate properties... but still.  It the 50 v my new 135L.  I suppose what I'm saying is that I was something transcendent for my money.

i am still rockin' an old 50 1.8 II, which I am looking to replace. This sigma might well fit the bill...  but like anything, i'll see what people say once they get their hands on it before i make any decisions!

I just picked up the 100L macro and I don't find it that sharp, I was using it for portraits and I'm thinking I may go back to 85L and return the 100L. The sigma 35 is sharper then the 100L so there's a good chance the Sigma 50 will be sharper too. I need this bad boy to be released already.

I'll let other people buy this then I might buy one second hand on craigslist or ebay when they are disappointed, maybe.

I'm confused: did you go full circle or only half-circle?   Full circle is when you're back where you started (you wanted it, then you didn't, now you do again.)   ;)

I'm at 540 degrees at the moment.... so full circle and change.

Haha!  I hear ya--I'm usually good for at least 1080 before I make any useful decisions.  Thankfully, this one isn't one of them.  But 5DIII vs 7DII and yay or nay on Tamron 150-600 on the other hand have got me doing Olympic caliber spins.

This is getting really deep, especially for someone with my native tounge ... I know the Stockholm Syndrome, but what does "they will pretty woman me" mean?  :P
