Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Reviewed by SLRgear

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens has been reviewed by SLRgear. As we said before, the official price for Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens will be announced on April 11th, 2014. SLRgear’s expectation for pricing on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens is at least a bit less than Canon’s 50mm f/1.2 L, which goes for $1,700. If it is really cheaper than the best of Nikon and Canon, Sigma will have made a friend of every full-frame shooter in the land. And you can also see the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens First Comparison Test.

Conclusion from SLRgear:

 

The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art is the most exciting lens we’re likely to review this year. All competing lenses from Canon and Nikon fell short when compared to the resolving power of the 50mm Art. We haven’t (yet) tested the very best from Zeiss, but we are confident Sigma will trounce it in one key area: price. This difference is likely to be a yawning chasm. Our expectation for pricing on this lens is for something at least a bit less than Canon’s 50mm f/1.2 L, which goes for $1,700; despite a variety of rumors and no official price for the Sigma yet, we’re expecting it’ll be less than that.

Even if the price is ‘merely’ even with the best of Canon and Nikon, this lens is easy to recommend. Put simply: it trounces any similar model available for less than $4,000. If it comes in significantly cheaper than the best of Canon and Nikon, Sigma will have made a friend of every full-frame shooter in the land.
