Hey all, so I just got the 50 art not long ago. I used it for my recent family shoot and noticed it was hitting about 85% of the time it probably needs a minor adjustment.But when it hits the shot stopped down oh is it ever pretty blows my 50 L in terms of sharpness and in my opinion the bokeh is pretty spectacular. The 85L is still my favourite but this this lens is right there.

Snapshot from when we got home from kindergarten today, @1.4



From this afternoon at the playground, I pushed the swing and quickly pulled up my camera and took one shot before I had to get out of the way, needless to say, the 50 Art focusing issues are very much gone. Shot at 1.4.

Thanks! I love this lens more and more each day. I'm buying a second copy 35 Art over the weekend, hopefully the AF doesn't suck like the first 35 and the first 50  ;D At least now I have the docking and I know that they can work and be epic.

I don't think you will regret the 35 it's AF in servo is amazing and my copy just never misses focus i cant wait to see what they do with the 85! it needs some wide open improvements and AF could be made better over the current version

I sold the 35 in one day, it was just more of the same rubbish, I will never buy it again, ever. The 50 however is basically all I use now, I think it's one of the greatest ever.

I gave up on both the 35 and 50 Art lenses. The 50 is sold and the 35 will go as soon as I get a reasonable bid. With the AF issues I have had with both, it will be a loooong time before I buy a Sigma again ... A pity though, considering the excellent optical performance of both lenses.

Sorry to hear that Eldar, I wish you could borrow my 50 and see for yourself, but fully understand you have up, I mean the 35 is not even considered anywhere in the future for me.

Anybody know what the current firmware version is on the 50 Art?  And how will we know if/when it gets updated, and, more importantly, FIXED for outer AF points on the 5DMkIII and other Canon cameras?

I've searched Sigma's site--I cannot find the current version there.
