I rented a Sigmalux to try it out on my 6D and it took about 12 seconds to remember I hate autofocus with a passion. These shots were all manually focussed which worked better than I expected. It's a nice lens. I did get some ugly green flare when shooting into the sun though - I didn't have a hood.

Now I know why they call it sigmalux. I didn't pay any attention on this lens before. I may not survive a blind test. I really want their art version of this lens.(if they can improve its f1.4 performance further) at the same time, why there are so many damn good 50mm lens out there.

I absolutely love this lens. Its brilliant. If Sigma makes an "Art" version that is better than this, I'll have a hard time not buying it.

The Sigmalux is my workhorse. And I'm barely use it wide-open.... which is quite a shame.
Very nice pictures btw!

Thank you. The Meyer is rapidly becoming one of my favorite lenses. At $125, it is a lot of fun and without any guilt.

About two months ago I purchased my first alternative lens - Zeiss Contax 100mm F2 - after a photographer friend sending me his to play with for a couple of weeks. Needless to say, I was hooked and as soon as I found one in the condition I wanted, I jumped on it. Thanks to Grenache for showing me the way.
