If its as good and affordable as the 35mm 1.4 it will sell like hot cakes. Competition is good for us

Both Panasonic and Fuji announced f/1.2 lenses. The Panasonic even has image stabilization....now that's different.

1.2 lenses for aps-c.... Equiv of f1.8 full frame in terms of depth of field.

If i recall correctly-
Fuji's is ~$1000
Panasonic is ~$1600

I highly doubt this Sigma will cost that high, not to mention this is for FF and will work downwards to crop adaptors, whereas those are only in x-mount and u4/3 mount.

That's not really the point I was trying to make. I don't want to seem like I'm complaining but who really needs a 50? We already have plenty of great ones to choose from. I say this before a single image sample is released. It could be something special as far as IQ is concerned, we'll see.

The only 50mm f1.4 that I have seen that is tack sharp wide open is the Otus. All others are relatively soft compared to the likes of the 85mm's. I could be wrong with that assumption, but that is the way I see it.

As someone who thinks every Nikon 50 is "meh" at best, I'm excited as hell. The original Sigma 50 was decent, but focusing issues (on 4 copies) made that boat sink. Hopefully it's on par with their 35.

I guess if you're not satisfied with the current options then that would be a good reason. I believe Sigma is simply updating all their lenses to the new A1 lenses and it was just time to do the 50. It weights a pound and has a 77mm filter thread which will be too big for my liking. I personally would have considered it if it was a pancake design, then it would replace my current 50mm pancake which is an AI-S lens.

Ya, for sure, this isn't a travel lens, nor a lightweight option. A pancake would have been f2.8 for sure. Lot of difference between f2.8 to f1.4. Either way, like the 58mm f1.4 nikon just released. Some will love it and others will look for other options.... like this sigma.

It would be quite the sensation if it's 90% the Otus at 1/5 the price. After the 35 ART and the startling Merrill DP trio, Sigma has shown itself quite capable of such a hat-trick.
