Sigma ART 50 Shipments - Have you received your confirmation
« on: April 29, 2014, 01:04:38 AM »
Curious about US based purchasers…. Once you receive your shipment confirmation, let the rest of use know from whom, and when you placed your original order…

In my case I ordered on 4/18 from B&H… Haven't heard anything yet.

Hey, based in Shanghai? Me too. Where did you get yours and what did you pay? I've seen that they're all over Taobao now, but I usually go to the Xing Guang camera stores at Luban Road.

How's the AF behaving on your 1DX?

Cheers!

Actually... I don't care about 50L v 50 art as much as I care about 50 art v 85L mkii.

So if anyone wants to compare those...

well i have the 85 sigma

at 1.4 the 50 art easily beats it and i think the bokeh is better
I feel there is not a significant difference in sharpness between the 85L II and the 85 sigma but the 85L II has better bokeh. I think the 50 art bokeh is pretty awesome to be honest this lens is a bokeh monster

How does the focus-consistency feel? Anything like TDP's 40% miss-rate?
