Anyone using Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM for Portraits?
Apr 18, 2014

I'm thinking of picking this lens up for portrait work and I'm wondering what others think who have used it for portraits?  From the reviews the positives are that it's very sharp even at 1.4, less vignetting than others, very fast and silent focus operation and built like a tank.  The negs are size, weight and price.

I also am using a Tamron 28 - 75 f/2.8 so this is a bit of overlap but the beautiful bokeh with the fast f/1.4 I really think it would be a useful lens.

It would be used on a K5II.  Thoughts?
