I just wonder, it looks like Sigma will have to deliver a lot of Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lenses.
Are they able to keep up the quality of each of those lenses? They did not have a very great reputation in Quality Assurance.

How long did it take for Sigma to fulfill their pre-orders on the 35 1.4?

Just wondering if it will be weeks or months before everyone gets their lenses.

I'm worried about the tested lenses around even. Some say the 50 is not quite as good as the 35 and dpreview for example says the 50 is better in every measurable aspect. and some sites shows samples pretty poor, and other looks fantastic. So you can either get Otus quality or 50 L sharpness it seems. Hope I'm wrong and it's just pre-production.

If there are min & max specs set in production, then I wouldn't worry much about QTY vs time. The 35mm ART seems to receive great feedbacks so far... ;)

The UK price comes in at an equivalent of over $1400 US - so you can have the one that I was thinking about.  ;D

My hope is that many people find things to worry about like this so that I can get my new Sigma 50mm with the first shipment.  It will go great with my incredible Sigma 35mm 1.4.

I had an earlier Sigma 50 1.4 that I did not use much. When I started using it I found it awful so I sent it back to Sigma for service as I was convinced that it was out of spec.
Sigma reported that an element had come loose and they had re-assembed it and it now performs beautifully.

Unfortunately, I find I seldom use this FL so the new one is of no interest to me. However the 35 does interest me.

I guess that regarding QA it all comes down to patience. Just wait and see the experiences of others  ;)
