The best 50mm lens for FF
Dec 25, 2010

When I got my a850 I refrained from buying a 50mm until more feedback came in on the sigma 50mm. I'm ready to get a 50mm and was wondering what you guys think is the best 50- the minolta 50 f1.4, 50 f1.7, sony 50 f1.4, or the new sigma 50mm? The heavier weight and higher price of the sigma aren't an issue as long as it's sharper and better at large apertures. But bokeh, rendering and color are important to me too which is why I'm still leaning towards the minoltas. I also really like the flare old lenses produce over new ones(yes I actually like flare & glare )
So what do you guys think is the best 50mm for Sony FF?
Thanks in advance & Merry Christmas!
