I use this lens the most out of the three I have. It's never let me down (I wish I could say the same about the Sigma 30 1.4 :-()

Gary.

can you go into this a little deeper. I'm seriously considering the sigma (after I change my 50 1.8 for a 50 1.4). Anything you have to say about the sigma would be appreciated. Feel free to PM me if you'd like, I don't want to hijack the thread. :lol:

I dunno about that Andy. What can you really use a picture of your lens cap for? :p

Me, I know... if I loose the lens cap, then I could watch the picture of it, and sigh, thinking "I miss it so much"...

Tis a great lens, indeed! You have to respect the super shallow DOF and take multiple shots with re-focuses to make sure you don't miss it unless you are far away), the DOF up close is about an inch

I guess there is a need for an L in this focal length.;)
