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:

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

This is an 100 crop from about 10th of the image
Shot at f1.4

Note the detail in the mans hair, note the splendid CA of the boy's shirt!

Here's one shot with the EF 50mm f1.4 on a 5D. Av was 1.4. ISO was 1600. Tv was 1/100. Cheers.

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