Around the same time Canon releases a new 50 1.4.

Why would they wait for Canon?

Sigma knows there is a big demand for a new 50/1.4.

Had the Sigma 50 1.4 it was not that great in terms of AF performance corners not that great so lets hope they have done their homework with new "Art" 50MM they will be producing. The currant one is not a bad 50MM but its not great either so what the point? Just buy the Canon 50MM 1.4 since no slouch plus the AF is 100X better that the currant Sigma offering. I am sure the new 50 A lens will be a good performer seems Sigma has really taken their share of the market quite seriously and they will put a dent into Canon & Nikon's market hold if the keep up Sigma 35 1.4 A lens type of quality.

I had the Canon 50/1.4 and I disagree. The AF was rather inconsistent, the lens was soft wide open with lots of CA, the build was sub-par, and the AF motor is known for dying (which is worse than needing calibration).

Now it's Canon's turn!

Curious what the price tag will be.

Yeah there has been a lot of bad feedback on the internet regarding the Sigmalux, but as with everything, people tend to complain more than praise. I was really happy with my copy and was sad to see it go. I may be looking into getting this one when it is out.

so i read that this lens is going to compete with the new zeis!! now im really curious about the pricing. if it has autofocus and the image quality of the zeis, then it will be even better.

Getting close to the resolution of the Otus would be very impressive but, build quality needs to be there as well. The problem for Sigma will be price point. It will be a tough sell if it goes for more than a 50 f/1.2L. Considering how often I use my 50, I'd have a tough time going over about $600.

The build quality of the Sigma art series lenses is outstanding.
