Sigma 50mm f/1.4 ......what will be next ?

Hi y'all.

After reading the latest lenstests of the sigma 50mm f/1.4 I have decided to buy myself one and sell my canon 50mm f/1.4 on ebay.

It looks like Sigma has made a clever move with this lens as it appears to beat it's canon counterpart on image- and build quality.

It also doen't suffer from a big amount of CA like Canon's 50 mm L does yet it costs about 1/3 the price.

I get the impression a lot of photographers are thinking of making the same move.

If this lens is going to be a commercial succes, I can well envision Sigma going for other large maximum aperture fullframe primes with modern USM like a 24mm f/1.4 and 35mm f/1.4

Could be good news for us customers, no ?
