This is an amazing lens. Great balance of sharpness, speed, value, size and build quality - and then the icing on the cake is that it focuses very close (relative to it's competitors). I only wish they (or someone) would make a fast 65!!!!!!! Come on guys someone frigin make one!

Tack sharp wide open and across the frame, good bokeh, great build quality, close focus, VC works well. The Sigma 50mm f/1.4's (pre-ART and ART) have more bokeh, but IMHO this is the more useful lens overall at this focal range thanks to VC and weather sealing. Highly recommended.

A fast prime at about 60 mm or 65 mm would get my attention too!
