The Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM doesn't quite achieve the optical perfection of the $4,000 Zeiss Otus, but it gets close at a quarter of the price.

  • +

    Extremely sharp. Minimal distortion. 15.7-inch close focus. Available for several camera systems.

  • -

    Big. Depth of field scale isn't that useful. No optical stabilization. A little pricey.

The Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art is distinctly large, heavy and expensive for its type. However this is more than made up for by its fast silent autofocus, solid build quality, and absolutely outstanding optics.

  • +

    Stunning image quality - super sharp, minimal CA and practically no distortion, Impressive flare resistance, Generally attractive rendition of out-of-focus backgrounds, Fast, silent, and accurate autofocus, Excellent build quality

    Large and heavy for a 50mm F1.4 prime, Relatively expensive for its class, No weather sealing

Similar to the excellent Sigma 35mm f/1.4 Art that I have numerously praised here at Photography Life in the past, the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art definitely deserves the high praises. Unlike its predecessor thatfell short in a number of wayswhen I put it against other 50mm primes, the new Sigma 50mm...

Sigma recently announced pricing on their newly redesigned and reengineered (and not-yet-released!) 50mm f/1.4 prime lens, which sits on their Art Line. Many photographers consider a 50mm prime to be their go-to, foundational lens size, so it was exciting being able to try out a lens that has...

Sigma has added to their 'Art' range of fast aperture lenses with this new 50mm f/1.4 lens, which will be available to fit Canon, Nikon, Sony and Sigma SLR cameras. This lens costs around £850, which seems like an awful lot for a 50mm f/1.4 lens.

Back when we originally tested the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG AF lens , the first in Sigma’s new high-end Art series to be released, we weren’t just impressed, we were eager to see what would come next.

Although zoom lenses are certainly versatile and convenient, they do have some drawbacks, including relatively small maximum apertures.

This is a heavy, solid 50mm lens. It takes great pictures and is very sharp. However, I tested this lens on 3 different Canon camera bodies and found it focuses significantly differently on each Canon camera body. On a Canon 50D, I experienced very little focusing errors at F1.4, 1.8 & 2.0.

  • +

    Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great color rendition, Nice Bokeh

    Inconsistent Focus 7d, Read My Comments Above

6 January 2015

I use this on my Canon 6d. This is by far the sharpest lens I've ever used. It doesn't focus as sharp on the outer edges. When you use your outer focus points, it struggles to keep up with Canon's L series lenses.

Just received this Lens today at Christmas eve and believe me this lens is the best lens so far I have experienced so far. Without this lens any full camera is not complete.
