Loving your shots. Would have been interesting to see the ship shot at f/1.8

Cheers. Sorry, didn't shot that one @f/1.8. I try to avoid shot wide open as the CA is pretty bad.

Some early samples from new lens

Nicely sharp across the frame

Reasonable close focusing and sharpness allows a good amount of deal of detail - as in this crop

Adding a Kenko 12mm Extension tube allows you to get in closer

According to the Reikan Focal Aperture Sharpness (external link) test, its pretty uniform from F/2.2 to F/11

Mine needed +1 MFA which is about the best I have had from an out of the box lens. Best as in calibrated to my 70D.

Great shots!!!

After breaking my 50 years ago, I went to the 50mm 1.4, then the Sigma 30mm 1.4 and now to the STM and have to say it's a great little lens.

I know it may be unfair but has anyone tested this against the Sigma 50 ART?

I don't know why anyone would. That'd be like comparing oranges to bicycles. :P This is essentially just a better built nifty fifty with some different coatings. It's in a completely different league, altogether. For what it is though, it can't be beat as far as I'm concerned. I own this new 50 STM as well as the 50 Art. The only reason I bought the STM was because my wife prefers the size and weight over the Art lens.

Like your wife, I prefer the size and the weight; that's why I was asking and was thinking on selling the Sigma 50 ART but would probably regret it by the quality loss.

You shelled out the $$$ for the Sigma in the first place though, clearly because you care about quality. Why go back now? It isn't 'that' heavy! :P

I loved my Art but it was heavy, which is why I bought the STM, so small and light but doesn't feel like a toy

Even though the STM AF is a little slow on the 24 STM, 40 STM, and 50 STM, as others have shown, it is fast enough for most things.

All the other STM lenses are very fast.


Mike, is the 40 sharper than the 50
