Jefferson, your first photo is an excellent example of why I sold my Canon 50 f/1.4. The lens just takes blah pictures in my opinion. They aren't saturated, and the contrast is not good. I got the Sigma 50 f/1.4 and the IQ is MUCH better. The focus on my Sigma 50 is fine for a walk around lens.
Actually I tried the Sigma 50 f/1.4 on my 5D and that’s the reason I went with the Canon 50 f/1.4…The Sigma would only hit focus about half of the time…when it did, the Sigma showed better…both were sharp, but I didn’t like the hit or miss of the Sigma…
I think for a relatively inexpensive lens, less than the Sigma, the Canon did a pretty good job on that first shot…there is a fair amount of bright and dark areas in that shot and I took my metering from the wood to the right of the Goodyear sign...bright sun just out of the shaded area in front, and the top of the Flea Market sign is faded…If the shot had been capture at 9AM rather than 3PM, the image may have looked different…but it was taken at 3PM…I could “fix” it in light room, but then that would not have been the way it was…There was not all that much post work done on the image…I wanted to show what the lens captures for the most part…
I got metering off the kid in front on the second shot...
