100% Crop from previous picture. This was taken at f1.4! Larger Picture.
Another 100% crop at f1.4. This pictures was taken about 25 meters away. Larger Picture.
Took some more pictures with the Sigma today. My impression is that this is one of the best 50mm f1.4 lenses I have used. Insanely sharp even at f1.4. Focus is quick and sure. So far I have not seen any focus problems. The loose hood continues to annoy me.
Wide open it's definitely better than the Canon 50mm f1.4. This lens slightly vignettes even with a huge front element and a 77mm filter size.
