Bryan has posted his review of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 "Art"

http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Sigma-50mm-f-1.4-DG-HSM-Art-Lens.aspx

The verdict:

"With excellent image quality and great design, this lens becomes the easy 50mm AF lens choice. AF consistency remains this lens' biggest weakness."

That was about as expected. Image quality apparently very good, but it does seem to have AF issues. That may well be Sigmas achilles ... Never the less, I am looking forward to get my hands on it!

Eldar, the good news is that you will be able to blame the Sigma for out of focus shots - something that's a bit harder to do with your Otus ;)

Looking through the photos he posted, the out of focus rate is almost 50/50 ???

AF inconsistencies are my biggest bug bare with lenses.

Think I'll stick with my 50L which may be softer wide open, but the AF nails it all the time every time.

He he, I do have problems with getting focus right whenever a light source is involved ;)
