sigma50-14jpg
Review Date: Dec 15, 2008 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $450.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Sharp, even wide open (Very impressive vs. the canon 50mm 1.4), quick focus for the most part, color is right on
Cons:
hunts a little bit in the dark when using outer AF points

The price almost kept me away from the lens but the quality after my first few times out with it keeps impressing me! I've never enjoyed the Sigma finish and the quickness you can see light marks so -1 for that. For the extra price, you get the hood and leather zip pouch which is an added bonus and their generous warranty as well.

I didn't have any real issues with this lens, just a little hunting in low light conditions while using the outer AF points in the aquarium and some night time shooting.

Overall, I'm very impressed with the lens and it was well worth the money... I took some full body shots... and was amazed at the clarity and detail that it picked up even on the smallest facial features
