I'm very tempted to sell this lens for the Canon 85mm f1.8, but there is a part of me that wants to keep it!

A few images from the Hyper Japan event in London. Gotta love the characters there and their outfits! :)

I picked up the Sigmalux, so far I can definetly tell it's not an ART lens (I have the 35mm ART), also been playing with the MFA I have it set at +6 right now, I'll probably hook it up to to FOCAL tomorrow.

Regardless I think this will satisfy my 50mm itch. I just couldn't sink the $950 on the ART version, and the Canon alternatives didn't seem any better.

Having owned the 50 f/1.8 Mk1 and 50 f1.4 USM, the 50mm Sigmalux is far better than the 50mm Canon f/1.4 USM, particulary for wide apertures. And I found the Sigmalux well built. My next purchase will be the 35mm ART...

35mm ART is Fantastic, you will love it.

Anyone using this lens on a 70D? I was about to purchase this but held it after reading some issues on this thread... I really like this glass but need to be sure of its reliability and performance. Now I am torn between the ef 85 1.8 and this lens. Also, the 70D has speculated issues on its focusing (including mine) and some compatibility problems with 3rd party lenses... Anyone?

50mm and 85mm are really different focal lengths, choose which suits the best your usage.

Buy one in second hand, and sell it at the same price if you're unhappy with it...
