Hi guys,

I've had this lens for about 4 months now, I absolutely love it but it does have focusing issues, after autofocusing then I manually adjust it backwards slightly. It's not really an issue when the photos are personal, but for work I can't really use it.

Anyways here are a few snaps out and about:

I miss my nifty-fifty but not the build quality, been thru two of them. How does this lens compare to the canon 50f/1.4?

Have you tried messing with any microadjustments?

I personally believe the Sigma is sharper.

L is definitely my preference, but if you are on a budget stick with the Sigma. The only reason you would buy the L over this lens is for f/1.2 and the 3D look the 50L produces (which can be a big factor). Otherwise in almost every aspect, the Sigma beats out the 50L IMO and I have owned both for extensive periods of time.
