I don't get it either... everyone has this crazed mentality of having to have the "best" possible lens and camera all the time...

Whatever though, I'll happily continue to treasure other people's "garbage" :lol:

Saying stuff like that isn't really much better than the idiots that are always saying their expensive crap is better and do fit that description. While it is accurate for a percentage of people, I am sure at least half of us that preordered are not gear snobs, don't look down on non current gear, and maybe really have been kinda waiting on a 50 of some sort that is not $1600 with some questions, or $400 with even more. And not to mention, other than vintage lenses(of which I am also a fan of and own), $950 preorder price is still a serious value compared to today's lens prices of similar alleged quality.

I know your point, and those people are here, but don't lump everyone into that category when most are likely responsible people that reasonably indulge and see things in their proper perspective.


Everything is relative.
Gear: 6D, Unholy Trinity:twisted: (24Lii, sigma 50A, 135L), and for the other ends of the spectrum, sigmaEX 14mm2.8 and sigmaEX 100-300F4.

I never said everyone is in that mentality, I just know plenty of people are, people are already saying they'll sell their 50L for this. I think it's great that Sigma has made such a lens, but the size and weight kill it for me. I'm happy just using my X-E1 and 35mm as a walk around kit for now, since that's mainly what I use 50mm for anyway.

I don't think the weight will be a killer for everyone. I doubt it ways more then the 24-70. Waiting for DXO results

Yes, but a 24-70mm is a very useful lens for many different things, especially events. To me the real appeal of a good 50mm is its convenience, that FL doesn't really excell for any particular thing imo.

No... you get a 50mm for the bokeh. If you're after convenience you'd get the 40mm 2.8.
Hopefully the Sigma 50mm Art will offer a lot sharper image wide open than the 50L and the other Sigma 50mm 1.4.

That has been proven in slr's review? Why hope when it's a fact already....

50L @ f1.4 loses in sharpness in the center and especially corners, CA, vignetting, distortion you name it...

Why argue over the lens. If you like it buy it...if not don't. Everyone uses their gear differently and if a 50mm lens is of no use for some, then this lens is of no use to them.

After seeing this Korean review, it will be hard for me not to get this lens.

Exactly.

the 35 I find a little too wide and the 85 I find just right. I'm thinking of ditching the 35 and picking up a 24 in it's place and grabbing one of these sigma 50s.

It weighs as much. The 50L is significantly smaller, and even then, wish it were smaller..... That said, if I didn't already own a 50, i'de likely suck it up and deal with it. Loved the 85L, regardless of it's size.

If a lens is amazing, I'm forgiving.

If you're after "bokeh", then why wouldn't you go for a more telephoto lens like an 85mm which has the added benefit of not adding perspective distortion?
