Well Jens, That looks about what mine produced to begin with. I was very taken with the lens. But after a while ... it all changed. I hope for your sake that it continues to produce good results and I´m waiting to hear how it goes.

Hello Jens, thanks for your post and the photos.
What was your indoor low light experience with the AF specifically with white contrast subjects in the frame?

Eldar, candyman,

thanks, I'll keep you updated.  So far, I didn't encounter any focus problems in any light situation. In the museum shots, it's halogen and tungsten, mixed with daylight. I have two jobs coming, one Sunday, one Monday to Wednesday. Daylight, indoor tungsten, indoor fluorescent, energy-savers, all mixed with daylight. I'll try the Sigma 50A, have the 24-70/2.8 L II with me as backup.

After completing to upload the 3 JPEGS from RAW, I'll add six night-shots, 960px, EXIF intact.

Cheers,
Jens

Night Shots, 960px wide, EXIF intact. Again, different types of light sources, no focus issues at all.
Note the sugar glass in the last two samples in almost complete darkness.

Cheers,
Jens

Verbaine-Thanks so much for the pictures.  I can't wait to get my Sigma 50.  I really enjoyed your website.  I wish I had your composition skills :D

Wow. Those images are incredible. I can't wait for this lens. I just picked up the phone and called Sigma's American office. They are expecting delivery of their next batch of 50mm Art's next week.

So on the fence about cancelling until issues and supplies are all worked out...But keep imagining this will be a great newborn lens...

Sure hope I'm not getting one of the lenses the OCD folk are tweaking to death and returning.  The stories here of lens churn are revolting.

What do you mean? Did you do any firmware update? or any AFMA yourself?
