I am wondering who uses this lens with the 6D? And if you had the lens prior to getting the 6D did you notice better performance with it compared to your previous body?

^ I use it with a 6D. I actually got it as my main lens, but did use it a bit on my crop 50D before I sold the 50D. Due to the crop image circle, the 50 was definitely sharper on the 50D, but you'd have to pixel peep. One thing you lose with using it on crop is the intended wideness, and the extra dof (or is it smaller?) using the lens wide open on a FF camera.

If you notice issues with your 6D without pixel-peeping, then there's likely an issue with the lens.

Thanks for the response! Did you have to micro adjust your lens at all? Mine does miss focus consistently so being able to use Micro-adjust would be great for me. Yes you can get a much more shallow DOF on a ff since the framing you will use is closer to the subject. I'm hoping it will work much better on my 6D when I get it since it is pretty good on my 550D.

I tried to, but unfortunately when I got it tack sharp at 1.4, it would be off by a few inches closer to infinity. Sharpness at 1.4 is acceptable, but not the best. I left it at 0, and I don't seem to see any misfocus issues.

Just received my Sigma 50mm as I got absolutely sick and tired of the Canon 50mm. I had it MA adjusted by a huge +17 and it still missed focusing a lot

Initial thoughts on the Sigma - Nice - very nice. Just ran a calibration and it is only needed a +5 MA adjustment. Before calibration it was just ever so front focusing so fingers crossed not a bad copy.

Colour looks much warmer than the Canon, which I actually really like, as this lens just about lives on my 7D it will get a bit of a hammering over the next month or so with the festivities.

That seems to be a trait of all Sigma lenses. Enjoy the lens- it lives on my 6D full-time, at least until I feel jealous about not using the other glass :P

I finally got the 6D and the Sigma seems to be going pretty well on it. I've only tested it in low light but the focus is much more accurate than my 550D and although the colours it produced where great on my 550D, the 6D is amazing!!! I don't think I'll need micro-adjust for it at this point but I will test it in proper lighting and see tomorrow.

^If you liked it in low-light, you'll love it in better lighting conditions.

I used to be really picky about sharpness and what not, hence me trying to MFA the lens. But at 0, 1.4 is acceptably sharp at MFD, and sharp anywhere further. So I just left it and kept on shooting.

If it's noticeable, I always say just exchange the lens. It's easier on the mind knowing you didn't settle on a defective lens :P

I took this today at f1.4 without any MFA and I'm very happy with the focus

There's a few shots that didn't seem in focus on the 6D screen but once I looked closely on the PC I realized they where. This one was shot at f1.8 and focused well too

I'm very happy with this lens on the 6D and I can't wait to shoot at night with it!

If you set up the "magnifying glass" button (zoom) to zoom in 10x or whatever it is, you'll be able to discern whether you have focus where you want it a lot easier.

Glad you like the combo!

haha yeah I know how to do that but for some reason it just didn't seem as sharp to me on camera compared to on the PC, maybe my eyes are going! LOL.

I love it, I swear the blur at f2.8 is as good as f1.4 on my 550D!
