Purchased a Sigma 50mm 1.4 EX DG HSM from another member here yesterday. Crossing my fingers for a good copy. I had a Sigma 30mm 1.4 back in the day. Would get 7/10 shots good with it, so I was happy. *Most* of the things I shoot I'm amble to take 3-4 shots refocusing each time and sometimes at different apertures so I was never really disappointed. It might be a bit challenging to get sharp photos of my dog or kiddo when they are on the move but we'll just see.

I know there's focusing issues wide open. If mine is sharp at F2 then I'll be happy.

Canon 6D, 1100
Sigma 50 1.4 325

For a grand total of 1425 shipped to my door. I'm going to start saving for a 70-200 F4L I believe.

yes, eventually you're going to want something longer than 50mm

Well, if you wanted opinions, you'll get them here. But it's likely to make it harder to make a decision. lol
My vote.... if your'e gonna go crop, pick up a used or refurbished 7D for $700 or less and put a Canon 15-85 on it. You'll never miss a kid shot.


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.
Canon 7D and a bunch of other stuff

Good choices. Both lenses are very sharp.


I use a Kodak Brownie

Thanks guys. Yeah I'd like to add a 17-40L or 16-35 to the mix down the road. Won't be right now though, need to let my bank account settle a bit.
