Sorry, but this is (most likely) NOT the MTF chart for the new Sigma 50/1,4. This chart is given as an MTF chart guide for each and every Sigma lens. Just click on the map "resources" and see for your yourself (Resources -> MTF chart guide -> View details). The real MTF chart will appear in the section "tech specs".

This might be your answer. Sigma just announced the 50 mm f/1.4 Art lens. If the MTF plots prove to be correct, this will be as good a lens as the 35mm.

Correction on Sigma 50mm f/1.4 MTF Plot
In reply to Scott McMorrow, 6 months ago

I apologize.  The MTF plot shown was not that of the new Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens.  It was an example MTF curve, and turns out to be the 50mm f/2.8 Macro.

The Sigma MTF plot for this lens is not yet available.
