Has Sigma announced plans for a 50mm "Art" lens?
« on: March 17, 2014, 08:25:38 PM »
I saw the recent rumor (CR1) of a Canon 50mm IS f1.8 or 2.0. While I'm sure this will be a great lens for many people, I have no need for IS at 50mm (as I mostly shoot pictures of my daughter, who never stops moving) and I'm more interested in a wider aperture. I've owned two copies of the 50L and had a love/hate relationship with it. What I'm really looking for is a 50/1.4 or 50/1.2 that is sharp wide open, focuses accurately, and has great color/contrast. In other words, I want the Sigma 35/1.4 version of a 50mm lens, and it seems Sigma would again be the company to do it.

Have they announced any intention to do so?

Sigma has announced a new lens "50mm Art" which is due in stores in April. Rumor has it that image quality equal to or better than "35mm Art".

Wow! Somehow I missed that. Thanks for the heads up—I'll be first in line.
