So are we just pretending that the Sigma 50 1.4 is not around?

I tried one and found it in another league above ALL of the Nikon 50mm versions. Do a search and I think you'll find quite a few people agreeing. The Sigma is even sharper at the center and produces bokeh on the level of the 85mm 1.4.

The only downside is that to accomplish this level of quality Sigma made the lens quite a bit larger than you might expect. I'll be giving away my Nikon 50 1.4 and buying the Sigma soon!
