Got it with 5dmk3 and it seems to be working real nice. I was worried about all this softness and harsh bokeh thing.

my old FD 50mm SSC lens is soft anti sharp.. but very very creamy when its bokeh'd out... not so much into very sharp picture if im rocking the FD lens.. all i want is creamy bokeh with alittle softness...

everything is manual focus... still getting used to manual focusing...

MY FD50 1.4 is NOT soft. It's very sharp and does beautiful work. Problem is I never liked 35mm even when I shot film so I rarely use it. I'm thinking about getting an EF adaptor without optics so I can use it for a macro lens.

Yep, just make sure to keep a hood on it. A bump to the front of the lens could knock the AF motor off sync.

Going to try out one of my co-workers 50mm f1.4 today on my 5D3 to see if I should buy the 1.2L or the 1.4.

Your pictures makes me think that the 1.4 will be enough. Going to be using this as a low light walk around lens when I go to Asia, as well as for video shooting.

I have sigma 50mm f1.4 and it is really nice on my 5dc. Tested it against my co workers 50mm f1.4 and I couldn't mind much differences except canon 50mm was little faster to AF. Sigma is built much better though. Now after getting my own canon 50mm f1.4 I need to decide which one to keep.

I do like a lot of sigma products hmmm.. I wonder how much the 5D3 build-in lens optimization/correctio​n actually helps (my reason for going with canon lens going forward). More research is needed. :neutral:

I went from a 50 1.8 to a 50 1.4 a few weeks ago and I thought my 1.8 was nice and sharp until I stuck the 1.4 on. My 1.4 is very sharp wide open, much better than the 1.8 was when wide open. I also got a 35 f2 and an 85 f1.8 and they are both very sharp too. It seems much better build quality than the 1.8 ever did too.

Wish it came with the hood though. Any recommendations besides official canon one?

Possibly a pricey update to the 50mm f/1.4 is on its way.

The way canon is going, it will be probably 50mm f2.8 IS for close to $800.:D

I have then EF 50 f/1.4 too and I think it's a great lens.
