If it's sharp with reliable AF at f/1.4...my 50 1.2L might get nervous.

Given the current Sigma is sharp at f/1.4 and very sharp from f/1.6 this would seem to be a no brainer. Interesting to see what they have improved as current lens is already excellent. One big improvement I can see is mfd and max magnification. I like getting in close and shooting f/1.4-f/2 but current lens has only 0.11x max mag. Also current lens is actually only 48mm, so I'd like to see this new one be a true 50mm lens.

i would love to see lenses actually be what the manufacturer says.. It's a real problem. The 70-200 is no where NEAR 200mm. it's rather disappointing.

I have been looking for a good 50mm lens for a while. Hell, I tried an A7 just to see if I could use some of the great RF 50mm lenses.

If this sucker resolves the inconsistent focusing problem of the current sigma 50 then it may be time to try another sigma lens. Their current 50/1.4 performs well enough but I just didn't feel like playing the Sigma lottery for a good one.

the current lens has mediocre corner performance, even stopped down. that, and AF consistency/accuracy are the biggest things to improve on.
Sharpness at 1.4 in center is ok, but certainly not in the same class as sigma 35 1.4 (not many lenses are of course)

Ecstatic about this. This could be an Otus killer.

the 35 was supposed to be geeat, so many people ended up taking them back due to incosistant focus. I had the same bad experiance with the sigma 85 and will probably be skipping this lens.


How many people? Out of how many sold? I'm just really curious and would like to know.
Thanks

Dream on. Otus is a no expense spared tour de force of lens design that is insanely good even wide open. The Sigma just needs to improve on the already great current lens and offer more reliable AF, although mine's very good on the 5D III/1D X using the spot AF at well under $1K for it to be a smash hit.

Exactly. I'm really looking forward to this lens. Great to see 77mm filter threads as well.

I think I'll wait till we get real lenses in hands- the Canon is still largely a better value than either Sigma. It's marginally better optically, while being smaller and lighter, and mostly guaranteed to hit it's AF targets.

If it has the same great IQ and AF as the Sigma 35/1,4. I will buy it. Sigma rocks lately.....

Hmmm, with Sigma recently one no longer thinks that "50/1.4" is quite small, pocketable lens :-)

But I am glad that it is also an internal redesign, not just outside redesign. I'd love to see a successor to the 24/1.8 EX DG tho'.

Also , not that it should be an issue but I see it only stops down to f16

I thought most f/1.4 lenses only close down to f/16?
I bet a lot of people were hoping - secretly - for Sigma's take on a 50/1.2. That would've been quite something - the first f/1.2 lens in Sony mount and the first one with AF in the Nikon fit. Well, it looks that 1.4 is the new 1.2... ;-)

Me, I was hoping to see a 24/1.4A first that would've stopped me from eyeballing the 24L. :-)

Well, that's Canon's new schtick- and that lens should be coming out this year to. Assuming Sigma has the AF on their Art lenses dialed in, it looks like we'll be able to choose between a fast, sharp Sigma, or a slightly slower, almost as sharp but light and small stabilized Canon.

It's a nice choice to have!

Ilia you may be correct i think the current one stops down to f16 as well . canon's 1.4 is f22 but i see the 1.2L is f16 .
