Is there a decent fast 50mm?
Nov 2, 2011

Why is it that the "standard" 50mm is a vacuum of quality compared to the fast lenses either side of that length. The Sigma appears to be the best of a bad lot based upon the various review and side by side comparisons. Even the 24-70 appears to best this group at 50mm.

I there anyone truly happy with a fast 50mm on a FF body?

I would really like to hear from those who are happy with their 50mm lens.
