You can see the full review of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens on The-Digital-Picture.com. Below are the reviews from DxOMark and ThePhoblographer.
From the ThePhoblographer review :
“Sigma’s 50mm f1.4 Art DG HSM is an exceptional lens. Starting with the design, it very much is in line with the company’s 35mm f1.4 Art optic. The outside feels and looks like something that Hasselblad might make. It feels just so great in your hands that you’d never want to let it go. In fact, if you’re a big fan of the 50mm field of view you might never want to give it up.”
From DxOMark review :
As part of the company’s new Global Vision Sigma’s reimagining of their premium lenses is reaping dividends. The 50mm f1.4 DG HSM A is every bit as good as the earlier 35mm f1.4 model, in fact it’s slightly better in outright sharpness and uniformity. If there’s a downside it’s that lenses built with few compromises are generally large and heavy, but at least Sigma isn’t making you pay through your wallet. At $949, the new lens isn’t much more expensive than the firm’s high-speed 35mm, and is similarly competitive when compared to rival offerings from the big-brands.
DxOMark has posted their test results for the new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. With 35 points score, Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens has an impressive performer with very good transmission and high peak sharpness. See below:
