Sigma 50/1.4 AF still iffy?
Feb 19, 2010

My Canon 50/1.4 AF motor is (once again) broken. I'm not sure that I want to pay a second time for repairs on such a fragile lens, so I'm looking at putting the money towards a different prime.

Some reviews say the Sigma 50/1.4 is awesome, others say it won't Perform AF consistently. The Sigma 30/1.4 had the same mix of opinions, but by the time I bought my copy the lens performed AF flawlessly and continues to do so 3 years later.

Has the Sigma 50/1.4 "settled in," or is it still an iffy choice? Thanks.

Sal
