Sigma 50mm f/1.4?
11 months ago

Just out of curiosity, does anybody have any experience with the Sigma 50 mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens?  It's one of the holiday specials at B+H today, and it's rare enough to see a third party prime featured on a major store site with Pentax as one of the mount options that I took notice.

I'm looking around (idly) for a lens in the 50-55mm range, but I am willing, indeed eager, to sacrifice a super fast maximum aperture for small size and light weight.  But since there's no 55mm Limited (growls), I feel obligated to at least consider all the options.
