Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX Upgrade?
2 months ago

First off - I know the answer to this question may be heavily biases and response will vary depending on what the lens is being used for but just want some thoughts.

I currently have the Nikon 50mm 1.8g. I've seen some steep discounts on the Sigma 50mm f/1.4g EX HSM (not the new art lens) and i'm tempted to replace the 1.8g.

Question is - is it worth it for the extra stop?

The Sigma is significantly larger and heavier but if I'm able to take better pictures than I wouldn't mind. I've heard the bokeh is amazing.

Any thoughts would be appreciated! 

(If it makes any difference, I have a D600)
