Re: Sigma 50mm 1.4 soft?

I had one and could get sharp pictures but it's obviously a little tricky @ 1.4 but a bit hit and miss.

Make sure you do your tests with a static subject and with a tripod as you or your subject may be rocking slightly back and forth.

Please note you also have a global lens adjustment which cumulated with the individual lens adjustment could allow you to adjust the equivalent of -20;0 or 0;+20. Although that will probably induce issues with your other glass.

As above, It'd be interesting to know if you can get sharp pictures in live view.

Do you find the lack of sharpness is more pronounces on a specific side?
