The first image tests of the upcoming and highly anticipated Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ART series lens have surfaced on Xitek.
The lenses used for comparison are:
- 311: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art
- Sony: Sony Planar T* 50mm f/1.4 ZA SSM
- Nikon: Nikon AF-S 58mm f/1.4G
- Otus: Zeiss 55mm f/1.4 Otus
Sigma is boasting that their new 50mm lens will rival the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 for a fraction of the cost optically, and it'll have autofocus to boot! Here's hoping the claim is true. Judging by this very small sampling of image quality, it's quite possible it will be.
