Please forgive me for not having time to read through all these pages- I was wondering if this lens has any vignetting wide open? I shoot a lot of newborns and my Canon 24-70 mkII vignettes a lot wide open- which can be nice sometimes, but I am fixing a lot in post because I don't always want a vignette with a newborn. I have looked over my images and many of them I shoot around 50mm. I have a Zeiss 50mm, but for older babies that move a lot, I prefer to have AF. So I was thinking of getting this lens, but want to make sure I would not have the same issue with vignetting. I might not be shooting at 1.4, maybe 2.0 or 2.8. TIA!


I want lenses more than diamonds.

Do you use Photoshop or Lightroom? Both should have a lens correction feature with most popular lenses having pre-loaded profiles. Yes the 50 Art does vignette. It is a one click removal for any lens though to get rid of it.

Here is a good comparison tool:

Looks like when both are at 50mm 2.8 the Sigma has less vignette.

A DJ friend ask me to do a headshot after we bumped into each other in a cafe, had the gear in the car from a shoot earlier in the day so a quick set up and shoot. Was a bit of fun on the street with lights set up and the computer resting on the roller for a tether table.

Thanks, Bright sun so just a 33' Elinchrom reflective umbrella camera left about 45º and at head height, just for fill, think I might have placed a white reflector high up to his left too. We where using the 2/135L as it was still on the camera for the earlier job but felt his shot was in landscape so the 50A got popped on.

I have CS5, I will look into that again. Someone once said those profiles don't match that well so I never tried them. But that was YEARS ago, so I am sure the technology is probably much better now. I honestly forgot about those it has been so long. Although, since my version of PS is so old, I don't know if either lens would be supported. I will investigate more this afternoon. Thanks for the reminder!


I want lenses more than diamonds.
