Hehe i switched to the sigma 50mm after owning the canon 50 1.4 for a short while~a week in fact. The canon one lost quite a bit of contrast wide open that I actually preferred my 50mm 1.8 to it :confused:

The sharpness of this len wide open is pretty good at the centre and the autofocus is spot-on most of the time. Contrary to others' experiences, this copy i had was the first one that i tried and i bought it immediately without testing out other copies.

Anyway, here's the link to the video you want to see:

I've been heading that project for the past 1year 3 months. Yours truly in the photo above ;)

I dont know what it is with sigma primes but IMO I think canon primes are sharper with more clairty although the sigmas produce better colors.

you are right... once it gets up past f 5.6 the canons are a little bit sharper, at least the 50mm.
but under 5.6 sigma destroys it,

Your test chart results would suggest that your lens is slightly front-focusing. That said, I can't tell if that's the case from your "real-world" examples.
