Sigma will be shipping its new docking station I hear roughly around March. The docking station and software will allow you to make adjustments with Sigma lens, with the lens "in" the docking station. I'd wait to see how helpful this new tool is.

And with the release of the Sigma 35mm f1.4 in the line up, and with it receiving excellent reviews, I'd seriously ask yourself would the 35mm do in lieu of the 50mm. I own the Siggy 50 but I took my Canon 35 f2 with me on a cruise, and I can tell you the Siggy would have been 'too long."

Hind sight is always better than foresight, except for lost opportunity costs.

Doesn't look like the 50 is supported by the docking station : http://www.sigma-global.com/en/lenses/cas/product/usb.html

Only three new Sigma lenses, 35/1.4 (art), 30/1.4 (art) for DX/APS-C and 120-300/2.8 OS (sport) support usb dockikng.  I guess Sigma will update 85/1.4 and 50/1.4.  Nevertheless Canon 35L, 50L, 85L, 135L and 200L/2.8 or very expensive 200L/2.0 IS all show their ages that need to be updated.

I'd pickup Sigma 35/1.4 over 35L and likely 85/1.4 over 85L.  Personally I will skip 50 (and I am selling 50/1.4).

BTW, do you realize it's a 6 months old thread?
