This review is from: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens For Canon
Pros: Portraiture is perfect with this lens, so is being able to use that very wide aperture for artistic shots, Gret build quality, HUGE glass, you will be serprised by the quality of this lens, even better than sigma's 50mm 1.4 if that is even possible.
Cons: Vignetting on my fullframe camera, CA not as well controlled as the 50mm
Other Thoughts: I've owned thislens for quite a while, it is usually with me for anything I shoot, especially portrait outings.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG HSM Autofocus Lens for Canon EOS
Pros: Bought a full framed 5D Mkii realized I still needa wide angled lens, was going to get the canon 24-70mm but was talked outof itby the store clerk, ended up getting this in stead. I must say forthe $600 I saved, I certainly didn't loose much in image quality. The lens is more compact than the canon, so that is a plus and the barrel extends properly unlike the canon model.
Cons: At 70mm bokeh is a bit week which is dissapointing but not serprising. The construction is not nearly as good as the conon model, not to say it's not bad, but thereis some noticable weight difference, plus no wheather sealing or dust sealing. Filter size is 82mm which is expensive, be warned.
Other Thoughts: Great alternative for my 5D I love the wide angle and what I will be able to do with it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Autofocus Lens for Canon SLR
Pros: I own this and the canon 50 1.4 compared to the canon it's a no brainer,the CA is completely held in check, compared to the nikon 50mm new or old verion, it's also the best. The front elementof this lens is amazing, Why do we need such large glass? Ill tell you, it's ot improve the image quality,I wish canon would do somethign about their 50mm line-up... HSM and manual override, plus the lens hood and carry case.
Cons: That being said, it's still not as sharp as the canon 50mm 1.2L but it's half the prie and still pretty close, the CA can still be an issue, but is quickly taken out in PS
Other Thoughts: I use this lens on the 5D Mkii and rebel t1i both show great performance and blow the "comperable" canon out of the water.READ FULL REVIEW
