About Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM

Save $31.93 when you buy this Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM . This Value Bundle comes with a Adorama Cleaning Kit, Tiffen 77mm UV Filter, ProOptic Universal Lens Cap Tether and a Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM and Shipping is free! .

This is a large aperture prime lens with a standard focal length of 50mm, ideal for all digital SLR cameras. This lens has superior peripheral brightness even at the maximum aperture and corrects a possible sagittal coma flare.

This lens is perfectly suited for a wide range of subjects enabling outstanding, sharply defined images against a nicely blurred background. The fast, F1.4 aperture makes this lens desirable for use with Digital SLR cameras.

This lens effectively becomes an 80mm medium telephoto lens on digital cameras with APS-C size image sensors. The optimum optical design and molded glass aspherical lens element provide excellent correction for all types of aberrations.

The super multi-layer lens coating reduces fare and ghosting. Superior optical performance is also ensured throughout the focusing range. This lens has a minimum focusing distance of 45cm (17.7") and has maximum magnification of 1:7.4.

It creates a very attractive blur, even when a small aperture is used. This lens incorporates HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor), which ensures a quiet and high-speed AF as well as full-time manual focus override.

Most Liked Positive Review

 

A good lens for portrait photography.

Though I had a bit confusion before purchasing this lens for my Canon 60D, however I opted for this lens for its Strong Construction and wide aperture. It would may give some unexpected result if anybody use it with multi-focus point. The best performance I have found setting "One Shot" and single focus point in my camera. I don't have experience with the Canon 50mm 1.4, but I am happy with this lens.

useless kit

I love the lens. The kit that came with it is probably something that they had laying around. The cleaning kit smelled like mold. I installed the screen protector on my 60d and I would smell that moldy smell every time I took a picture. The UV filter that it comes with is terrible, lens flare would show up in my photos when used in daylight. I would be afraid to keep any of it in my camera bag of fear of getting mold in my lens and camera. Don't think you are getting a good deal with this kit.

Fantastic 50mm - no joke

By

from NYC  -  Pro Photographer

I have to admit, in the more than 30-years I've been a professional commercial/advertising photographer, I have, generally, always been brand loyal. In my case, that's Canon. For years, I used the Canon 50/1.4 (going through two of them) and replaced my second one with the Canon 50/1.2. I have to say, for the past three years I've owned that lens, I've been underwhelmed. I've always felt the adage was true -- almost any lens is sharpest 1-1/2 to 2 stops from maximum aperture. Sadly, this was never the case with my 50. I had to stop down to at least 5.0/5.6 to get decent sharpness across the frame, which negates the reason to own a fast, expensive. It was time for a change. I decided to rent the Sigma 50/1.4 three different times to use on three different shoots, because of the various reviews I'd read. Each time I was impressed by the sharp images the lens delivered. If there is a negative, it's slight. I discovered the the lens is perhaps about 1/3 stop (maybe 1/4 stop) darker in exposure than my other Canon lenses at any given value. (95% of the time, I shoot on manual, so you see the difference. This is not the case when used on "Av".) So, the true transmission value is less than the nominal f1.4. Not a huge deal, but worth noting. What IS worth noting is that the lens is quite sharp at 2.5 to 2.8 -- much more so than my Canon. My only other potential reservation is servicing. I know what I have with Canon (I'm a CPS member), but I hope I won't have to send the lens to Sigma. From what I've heard, though, they've much improved their repair support over the years and turnaround is relatively fast. An additional note: buy the Sigma Lens Optimizer (for focus tuning). I haven't had to use it on my bodies, but it's peace of mind to know that I can fine tune the lens if needed. Buy this lens. You won't be disappointed with the quality -- both optically and build.

The BEST purchase that I've made

By

from Phoenix, AZ

I purchased the Sigma Art 50mm specifically for boudoir photography, and it did not disappoint. The lens is crisp and clean. I love how my images turn out. It's a fast lens, and is a great addition to my equipment. I was hesitant to purchase it because of the piece, but I am so sorry that I did. I highly recommend this glass.

Sharp Lens with set backs

By

from Findlay, Oh

I use this on my Canon 6d. This is by far the sharpest lens I've ever used. It doesn't focus as sharp on the outer edges. When you use your outer focus points, it struggles to keep up with Canon's L series lenses. But overall I would recommend this lens as a cheaper alternative to the Canon 50mm 1.2L.

Finally! A Canon 50mm f/1.4 Replacement

By

from Atlanta, GA

USE: Everything and anything for low-light and dramatic day-time photography. PROS: Spectacular MTF optical clarity like the Zeiss. Beautiful bokeh. Great build and ergonomics. No plastic feel. Solid and accurate internal focus system. Great advantage over the Canon 50mm f/1.4. Wider field of view than the Canon 50mm f/1.4. CONS: Much longer and heavier than the Canon 50mm f/1.4; however, given the optical improvements, the size naturally has to increase in order to output the proper results (so not really anything to complain about).

Jorge R  Hi, I do wedding films with my canon 60d and I'm thinking seriously to get the " Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM " or " Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Standard & Medium Telephoto Lens " someone could give me some advice about it ??? Which is better to do clear and bright video ??? Thanks in advance !!!
DEBORAH H  Hi Jorge, I saw this and felt it important to answer. I have been a professional for 12 years and have owned both. I believe that both are fine lenses, for their build and performance. I did, however, get a bad copy on my Sigma (back focusing issues) and had I had a good copy, my only complaint about it was that the glass is very heavy and I am a small woman with small hands, so when I finally set down my large lenses to use it, I had wished it was lighter! The Canon, is exceptional. It is light weight and tack sharp and I have never known anyone that didn't love their Canon 50m, 1/4. It is an all around great work-horse lens for photo and video. Hope that helps and happy holidays! deb
Jorge R  Thank You Deborah, always is better to get more points of view from the people who had worked with the items requested !!! I'll try with the sigma ( my heart bets tell me this can cover my expectations ) even if I'm a big man with big hands !!! Thank You Again, and I wish you happy holidays too !!!
(unknown) (  Would you please let me know if how good is the autofocus? I heard from others that the autofocus is not very accurate.
PETER G  The auto focus is OK. Obviously worse than native Olympus and Panasonic/Leica 4/3 lenses, but you cannot expect the same high quality from Sigma. It hunts quite a bit in low lite and sometimes misses.
