It took a while, but Justin completed his review of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG Art series lens. This isn’t a usual focal length for him, so there was some challenged when using it on jobs. He much prefers the 35mm focal length.
He did come away impressed with the lens, like most reviewers out there.
Reviews here at Canon Rumors have slowed down while we work on a new web site, we hope to increase the pace at which they come in the spring.
“I wasn’t sure how I felt about this lens after I sent it back. I didn’t have it long enough and I didn’t really push the lens against its competitors. I tried to use it on every job I had for a few busy weeks, and I used it. I actually used it. I hardly ever use my Canon 50mm f/1.4, as there’s something about the resulting photos that don’t blow me away. I keep it in my kit because it’s relatively inexpensive and not really worth selling. While my general feeling is that the Canon 50mm f/1.2L isn’t worth four times as much as the Canon 50 f/1.4, the Sigma is definitely worth the two and a half times price difference.” Read the full review
