I’ve never been a fan of Sigma to be honest. I’ve always thought they were a poor quality mass market company. I suppose that was true for most of their life. Lately however, they’ve been trying to compete against the big names like Canon and Nikon. Their 35mm f1.4 Art lens is said to be very nice, so when they announced the 50mm f1.4 Art for Canon, I really wanted to try it!
We put one in the rental case where I work, so I got to play with it and discovered it lived up to its hype. I’ve converted almost every person that rents the 50mm range of lenses to being a Sigma fan!
Naturally, I couldn’t keep borrowing one. I had to have my very own!
