Sigma Lenses for the SD1 Merrill
May 21, 2012

Hello folks,

I'm about to get the SD1 Merrill for portrait work only and I was wondering about which lenses I should get for it. I have a Canon 5dII setup (if interested see my gear list) which will take the back up role now but I can't decide between the 30 1.4 or 50 1.4 for my first lens with it. I really want a "normal" lens first off but I've been seeing conflicting reviews on the net for the 30 1.4. Some tests show it is great and some show it's kinda "meh". What are you guys using for a "standard lens"? I'm definitely gonna get the 50 1.4. Are there any good wides available? Something like a 28mm equivalent on FF?

Also since I'm adding camera I have to part with one as well. Bye bye DP2s. Any takers?
