I'm getting missed focus from my Sig 50mm when I have my Hoya ND filters on as well as the Polarized Hoya, trying to figure out if it's an issue with the filters I'm using or an issue with the lens? do others have this problem with different filters maybe more expensive ones, if not I guess I may need to drop more cash for better filters.

Other than this one issue I have had no other focus problems from my (new version) Sigma 50, its on my camera more than most other lenses well maybe a tie with the Canon 135.

Are you getting the same focusing issues without any filters? If so then it's likely the lens. Unless the filter is somehow really bad, it shouldn't affect AF performance as they just reduce the light coming in. Assuming you're not indoors with low-light situations with the ND/CPL filters on, I can't see it being the filters.

Will probably move to the Canon 50mm 1.2 eventually.

I actually read not long ago on Canon rumors that Sigma are actually planning to make a 50mm 1.4 art. Considering how good the 35mm is, the art addition could fix the focus issues. I would personally rather just sell my Sigma 50mm 1.4 and upgrade to the art than get the Canon 50 L.

Here's the link if anyone wants to see

No other issues its tack sharp and focuses fast, I use this lens allot, its almost as sharp as my 135Lf/2

That's bizarre! Anyways I guess your only option is to try different filters. The only one I put on my 50 was a Hoya pro-1 digital cpl, and the were no issues to be had.

Good luck!
