Personally, I look forward to the release of this lens and real-world testing. The lab shots are encouraging, but I want to see something outside a controlled atmosphere.

It will be interesting to see if Sigma comes with an ART 1,4 50mm lens...
Autofocus and easier to make very well at the same pricepoint as the 35mm ART lens
If that happens... Nikon and Canon have a problem becoming third and fourth in quality...
A good reason for them to make a good standard lens too - better than their 350 euro plastic stuff...

Hi,
i 've talked to Mr Dr. Nasse from Zeiss who is the leading engineer of this lens. This lens is designed by Zeis but build by Cosina in Japan. And he said, that Cosina build several lenses for other big photo companies. This lenses have AF!!!! And they have an agreemant with this big companies that cosina dont build lenses with AF. Then they dont loose there partners..

Canon and Nikon have been focusing on their zoom lenses making significant progress.

Just compare the new Canon 24-70 with the lauded Sigma ART 35mm 1.4.

Hi,

Much of the effort is going into making f/1.4 workable and getting rid of color fringing.  Most good lenses are good at f/5.6.

Best regards
Erik
