Despite the horrid luck we had with the newer Sigma telephoto zooms, we decided to stock the new Sigma 50 f1.4 since so many of our customers wanted to try it. The lens has an HSM (hypersonic motor) drive for quick autofocusing, multiple coatings and aspheric elements to prevent flare and chromatic aberration, and appears to be a sharp, contrasty mid-range prime.

It’s become apparent through many tests and online forums that the Sigma 50 is a ‘special’ lens. I was glad to find this out because it was driving me nuts. It’s a very nice lens when you use it just right, with superb sharpness and smooth bokeh. But here’s the summary:
1) It works very well on crop frame cameras and at middle (5 to 15 feet) distance, so its a wonderful indoor lens.
2) On full frame cameras and to a slight extent on crop frame cameras, the lens exhibits what I will term ‘schizophrenic autofocus’: Closer than 5 feet it will front focus, further than 20 feet it will backfocus. This is not a calibration issue, its just how it is.
