Pros: Sharpness, 1.4 aperture, excellent bokeh, good construction, AF with eos r does not miss a beat

Cons: Not found yet

Opinion: Lens in my possession for a short time, used and happens almost immediately, first fixed lens at f1.4 and I find it gorgeous, I confirm the merits listed by other people such as the excellent sharpness already in ta, bockeh, etc ... a little less who says the weight (compared to other fixed ok, but calculating the quality that gives you already a ta you carry quietly all day coupled to an eos r, I was used to 5d3 and 24 70 tamron 2.8 stabilized, maybe this helps?). No focusing problems with eos r, compared with Canon lenses in my possession (16 35 f4 and 70 200 2.8 II) is slightly slower, but nothing like that, a few thousandths of a second more!!! After all, an excellent lens, excellent value for money!

Pros: Sharpness

Cons: WORRYING AUTOFOCUS

Opinion: on sharpness, I do not add anything else is very good particularly from 1.8 even at the edges THE PROBLEM: AUTOFOCUS , my analyzes on both d800 and d850: outside the central points of the cross sensors (the three central rows), simply NOT THERE. he hooks but is never sharp. >>> IF YOU WANT THE PERFECT FIRE you have to focus in the center and recompose or use the LV large shadow even on the whole ART series. TOO BAD REALLY . Just to clarify with Tamron 70-200 g2 and 35 35 1.4 this does not happen or much much less. TOO BAD. it is important to be aware of it and train yourself to recompose

Pros: The best 50mm on the market, frightening sharpness already at F1.4, quality of the final photo, wonderful bokeh, heavy lens (it is the quality that returns justifies the 800g or so), you fall in love with it to such an extent that you do not disassemble it anymore, but as indeed the whole series of fixed Art makes you fall in love.

Cons: Maybe the Microcontrast, but my photographs in Post-Production helps me not to have it. I am not a lover of natural colors and super shot. I love it as it is. It has almost no flaws, sometimes perhaps it does not hook in the dark, but it is rare. I lost fire very rare times. Considering I had a 6D Mark I (the very first 6D, which certainly wasn't lightning to focus).

Opinion: History of my 50mm: Canon 50mm F1.8 STM > Canon 50mm f.1.4 USM > Sigma Art 50mm F1.4 | The quality of the files has changed markedly. Chromatic Aberrations do not even exist at TA, the detail already at TA is scary! I have no words of how much I am verifying the quality of the Sigma Art that I own and try. Of course they are heavy, the micro contrast does not exist almost at all, but looks like a value because the flat photos in post you can work better: similar experience as it already happens with LOG files, in the camera set all flat so that I have in post a greater range of editing. As it happens in LOG files, the files must be colored, or almost, even if here it is simpler because it is not really a flat, but already a clearer chromatism. When I go to use my presets in Camera RAW or Lightroom Classic or Lightroom on iPad I will realize how precious sigma is in color grading. What with the Canon hardly succeeds. I have always loved the melancholic color, a little denatured and is an active part of my current style. I love what Sigma Art hunts and I do not consider it a defect, but rather a merit for me. Although sometimes it can happen that it does not focus, but it is also the fault of my old and beloved EOS 6D. But the Sigma on its part is fast, precise and if the fire hooks you challenge to compete with other canon L series (EF) fixed lenses. l 50mm F1.2L USM tested, and 1.4 is not as sharp as the Sigma, although it is a 1.2L (we seem that at TA the files are pasty and the sharpness loses especially on the edges. The Sigma, despite being an F1.4 is a hyper correct ethic, with many groups of correction lenses and this also justifies the comparison of the luca which is as if it were an F1.7 (F1.5 sometimes) the lent are slow and have a certain resistance to light. Explained why the much criticized micro contrast is also missing, Canon 50mm lenses have 1/3 of the lenses, Sigma have those lenses because the engineering of those lenses is perfect, but like all lenses they have flaws. who can only like or displease. But let's not blame the dear Sigma, but the physics (which is not a human cause) If you want such a perfect optics you will not have it in other Canon lenses. The Sony G Master series is very similar, but it's Sony, another story.

Pros: Mainly sharpness, good already at full aperture in all conditions and at any distance of focus

Cons: Boring and flat rendering, amateur autofocus sometimes does not hook, high weight to be a 1.4, worse construction than it seems

Opinion: SHARPNESS: let's start with the merits, the Sigma 50 Art is sharp, disgustingly sharp. It is able to perform well in any condition already at full aperture, whether it is a close up or a distant full-length portrait. GENERAL YIELD: when I bought it (used at 450) as the main work lens I was very happy because compared to my old canon 50mm 1.4 it did not knead at full aperture over the meter of focus, it had less aberrations (than those that you do not remove with a click), more sharpness and general contrast very good, but after two years I wanted to sell it because it has a very flat yield anyway, opaque, which soon bores, the colors are never decided and has like a "patina" that kills photos with a lot of color variation inside them, I do not know if I explain. Example, a portrait of a blonde with blue eyes does not make it well, it is sharp but flat in tones, regardless of the color profile used or highlights the cold colors (blue eyes) or warm (dark blond / brown hair), the microcontrast of this lens is really mediocre. Before selling it I had it for some time together with the Canon EF 50mm 1.2 that replaced it, well they are two lenses of different categories. The numbers and reviews say one thing, while the experience in the field says quite the opposite, there is a reason why the sigma on the used is found at just over half of the Canon. The Canon L has much better colors and a much higher halftone yield, but I'll come back to that later. AUTOFOCUS: another note against the sigma, the focus (at least on Canon bodies) is mediocre and at key moments you risk losing the exchange of the rings and this is not a good thing, there is a problem of front back focus (which it still has) but not to hook the subject! BOKEH: the blur of the Sigma is good but not excellent, even here I would call it boring. Quantity but not quality. BUILD QUALITY: it has never taken shocks but after only a summer of weddings I found it with a crack on the plastic around the front element, bad bad sigma. DIMENSIONS: a really excessive weight for a 50mm 1.4, but this is the price to pay to have a hyper correct optics. BRIEF COMPARISON WITH THE CANON EF 50mm 1.2 L: the Canon is less sharp at full aperture but is already sharp enough for every use, has a blur of a completely different caliber (quality and quantity), majestic colors and a rendering of detail (NOT sharpness but tonal detail) at full aperture to leave you speechless. All weighing and cluttering less! Then if you are interested in distortion (correctable with a click and in any case nothing tragic) aberrations (also here nothing dramatic) and sharpness at the edges at full aperture buy the Sigma, if instead you are photographers and you want a lens that can make the difference and give you that "more" invest yourself with your eyes closed on the Canon without thinking twice. The Canon is a lens that does not always use it at full aperture because, generally speaking, it has its own identity from 1.2 to 1.8 (magical) and another identity from f2 up (sharp and microcontrasted not to be believed), so it is like having more than one lens in one depending on the yield you prefer, a daydream (1.2), a daydream but engraved (1.8), a blade with otherworldly colors (from f2 upwards). Sigma has for better or worse the same identity at every opening, not surprising, without infamy and without praise. CONCLUSIONS: in short, it is an amateur lens suitable for general use and very unsuitable for portraiture in my opinion, if you want to take on an exaggerated weight for a 1.4 spending 450 on the used (not worth a euro more especially for the build quality and autofocus) this lens is for you, but if you are professionals it will not withstand either the test of time or the comparison in the field with optics of other caliber such as the aforementioned Canon 50 L or some other zeiss pearl

Pros: Superlative sharpness, price, construction, optical quality, addictive

Cons: Every now and then he suffers from Front/Back focus with little light

Opinion: Optics that I would never change and replace, absurd sharpness already in T.A., the weight is not so excessive and you can manage quietly, the construction is solid and well done, really superlative optics, the only flaw (but you know) the focus is not lightning fast (on Sony A7ii) and with little light every now and then it struggles to find the focus point , I honestly do not consider it such a persistent defect and that makes you hate the lens, the price in relation to quality is in my opinion perfect looking at what the competition offers. I think it's one of the best (if not the best) optics I've ever had.
