So I started as many others with the 50/1,8 many years ago. Loved it but build quality was...well..not good. It broke at some point.
Bought a Canon 50/1,4 instead. I've had that for a couple of years now.
Though there was an accident. It was in a camera bag that fell to the flor. Now no more focus in it.
(I'v looked at a couple of Youtube videos but it seems like mine is more banged up than that.)
So now I'm looking at replacing the broken one.
So I could just go for a new Canon 50/1,4.
But for just about 200-250 USD (but in Swedish Kronor) I can get the Sigma 50/1,4.
This seems like its a lot sharper (especially at wide open), a LOT faster in auto focusing and WAY better build quality.
The only downside that I can see is that it is SO much bigger (and heavier). Iäve used my 50mm when I wanted just something "small and easy" sometimes.
So any thoughts about this?
Anyone made the switch? Regretting it? Loving it?
(and perhaps we should also throw in the Canon 50/1,2?)
