I am happy with my sigma. It's pin sharp! Hard to focus if it's bright outside though.... But i guess that all fast primes have this issue.

Is this a fact? I am not a prime lens user but planning to merge on them.

Don't really understand, you mean Autofocus or Manual Focus ? Using optical viewfinder or live-view ?

Autofocus. At night it is spot on at f1.4 every single time. But in bright sunny day i lose lots of shots cause the af can't focus every time. It's not a camera isue. 40d and 5dii are great at focusing. I'm planing to get an nd filter to solve the focusing isue. If i go to f3.5 or a smaller aperture in brignt sunny day... it's spot on.. every time... as soon as i go to f1.4 i lose shots...

Your pictures are really fantastic so don't change too much your settings ;). What kind of lighting do you use ?

5Dii + 50mm Sigma... well. focusing is fast but the accuracy on every distance is kind of joke :lol:
In fact, even with these autofocus flaws, this lens is really a gem. I find the good method is to micro-adjust the Autofocus on distance of subjects you mainly shot (1.5m for example) and use manual focus when subject are far or closely.

Waiting for your next work!

Thanks!
On those pics i used my 40d backup body + sigma 50mm. Settings? i keep my iso very low... The shutter speed low so i can sinc a flash as the fill light at very low power. Aperture? first picture at 1.4, second at 2.2. But every location is different, every lighting settup is different. So.... I guess the composition is everything.

I've been trying to use this lens the last week or so, I've found that I really have to stop it down to about f2 to get the results I'm looking for. It's manageable, but not stellar. You really need to take a lot of shots with this one and hope that one turns out good. It's not a magic bullet like the 35mm ART, or maybe a 70-200 II, but it's fun I guess.
