Review Date: Jan 3, 2012 Recommend? no | Price paid: $379.00 | Rating: 1 

 
Pros: Nice bokeh
Cons:
Schizophrenic autofocus

I purchased this lens new 7 months ago and I have sent it back to Sigma twice for autofocus issues. The lens alternated between front and back focus. Sigma claims to have 'different firmware' that they install but thus far the lens is quite useless. I did a comparison / video review between the Sigma and the Canon 50mm f/1.4's here:

Clearly the winner is the Canon 50mm f/1.4 for over $100 less than the price of the Sigma.
