there is no such lens as the old sigma 35mm f1.4...there's only the art version...you mention how much you don't want to spend, but how much do you want to spend?

also do you have any sort of zoom lens that you can use to determine which focal length you would prefer?

Oh odd! I must have been thinking of the 30mm f/1.4. Well that option is out.

I have the 50mm 1.8 to test the field of view of 50mm, but I don't have any 35mm (in a zoom or prime) to compare.

any 50mm 1.4 are great lenses. My first sense was canon 50mm 1.4. super sharp and blurs the background nicely..decently priced as well

I have the 50L and love it. It is expensive but I have no complaints on performance. My favorite attributes:

Fast and accurate AF.
Flare performance
Bokeh, both front and back of the focus plane. Very smooth and neutral.

thats weird about the 50 1.8, i have the mark 1 and unless its completely dark, i cant even remember it missing.
what about the 35 f2 is? not as good as the sigma, but the best bokeh at 35mm, but maybe a little wide. im waiting for the 50 canon with is:lol:.

Avoid the 50 1.8 II. I've tried three copies of it on at least 4 different bodies. I could not get it to focus consistently. :)

I have owned all three Canon 50mm lenses, and agree - the AF performance of the f/1.8 II is terrible. The f/1.4 had consistent and accurate AF, but it was noticeably slower and less smooth than the AF of all the ring USM lenses I own or have owned -- it uses an inferior micro motor, similar to that of the 70-300mm IS (non-L). I upgraded to the 50L when I found one for a good deal... this was before the Sigma 50 Art was ever announced.

Much appreciated. I will probably go for the 50mm, now I just need to decide which one.

"I'm really leaning towards saving a little more money and getting the Sigma 50mm 1.4 Art lens. I keep hearing such amazing reviews!"

-> Let's face it, you have answered your question. If you don't buy and at least try this you will never know or be satisfied. That's the main principle of Gear Acquisition Syndrome (LOL).

I know half my purchases have been based on this.


FUJI XT-2 & FUJI XT-3 ->
12mm Roki, 16 f1.4, 35 f1.4, 56 f1.2, 80 Macro
10-24, 18-55, 55-200, 100-400
