Having purchased the fantastic cheapo Canon 50mm f1.8 mk2 a couple of years ago and used if probably 50% of the time on my 60D, I decided that my next lens would be an upgrade to this one. I was initially going to buy the Canon 50mm f1.4 but after checking out the lens at my local Jessops felt that it was too much like the f1.8 in poor build quality. As the Canon 50mm f1.2 L lens was abit out of my reach I decided that I would check the Sigam 50mm out.

Right, first things first, as nearly all the reviews I have read on this lens state, the quality control is diabolical, if you get a duff one (and this is more than likely) it will either back focus, front focus or not focus at all at any aperture. The first one I purchased would either front or back focus and to such an extent that even if you manualy tried to compensate it would focus somewhere else, a total waste of time. After receiving a replacement this too would not focus correctly again with total unreliability. I decided to return this and got my money back.

But, there was something about this lens that I really liked, the build quality was second to none and in some ways is better than my 24-70 f2.8 L lens. The large glass at the front (77mm) may be annoying to some but I really liked it and it must capture alot of light.

I decided to try again and this time I went to a shop that had a lot in stock (Warehouse Express in Norwich), the sales assistant allowed me to try all 9 units that he had on the shelf (a number looked as tough they had been returned) and after going through them all, I can honestly say there were only two that I was happy with, one of which I purchased and I love it.

It is super sharp down to f1.

This was a lens I deliberated about for quite a while before buying. I'd read lots of negative reviews about poor focus performance - and a lot of reviews from other very happy users. Eventually I tried one in a store and bought it.

Maybe I was lucky, but my copy focuses perfectly. It's a little slower to focus than my L zooms but it's no slouch. The build quality is far better than the Canon f1.4 lens and the lens balances well on a larger body like a 5D. The images the lens produces are slightly warm (a Sigma trait apparently) but I like the look and the out-of-focus blur is smooth and creamy. There is a little bit of purple fringing in high contrast areas but this is common on fast lenses.

I recently took this lens on a short break along with the Canon 24-105 f4L IS but that lens hardly got a look in - the Sigma was on my 5D nearly all the time.

The warranty is especially good on Sigma lenses right now with a total of three years available upon registration. So if you do get a duffer there's plenty of time to get Sigma to fix it at their expense.

By the way, Just to show that all manufacturers make a duffer sometimes...my Canon 50mm/1.8 backfocuses terribly.

It's EX series, so it's very well made, solid casing, looks great. However, while testing with the canon Camera (5D) it shows serious strong tendency to random focusing, which is impossible to control. Sometimes front sometimes backfocus, impossible to predict. The effect is that most of the photographs are out of focus.
For my needs this lens if far from sufficient to be used in professional photography.

The Sigma 50mm f1.4 EX DG HSM is a full frame compatible lens which on a x1.6 crop APS-C camera will be the equivalent of 80mm. The lens appears to be well made and well finished and is supplied with a hood and a carry case.

The aperture range is f1.4 to f16 and although I'd prefer a smaller aperture for occasional use the aperture range offered should be suitable for many occasions and as one of the main advantages of this lens is the availability of f1.4 the slightly restrictive smallest aperture of f16 is perhaps excusable.

The lens is quite large for a 50mm lens but it is smaller than many prime or zoom lenses and feels comfortable and manageable enough when fitted to a camera body. It has a manual / auto focus switch on it's body and a well positioned if rather narrow focus ring towards the front of the lens. As the lens has HSM manual focus is possible in both manual and auto focus modes. Rather disappointingly if the lens hood is reverse fitted to the lens the focus ring is obscured but this lens is by no means unique in this respect.

I have found this lens to be a joy to use at all apertures including f1.4. I have found that focus is achieved quickly and accurately and quite quietly too thanks to the HSM. I have no real complaints and would happily recommend this lens to anyone looking for a fast prime for available light, creative limited depth of field or general usage.

One note of caution though, when used at f1.4 the depth of field is very limited and any movement of the camera or subject relative to each other can have an effect. Focusing on a scene and then recomposing the shot is not the way to use this lens at f1.4.
