Re: DA* 55mm - Awful review // Amazing specs

I have used the FA 50 and Sigma 50. Sold the FA after I got the Sigma. It did need a focus correction on my K-7, the only lens I've had to do that with. It's totally usable wide open and there is enough dof to use it there. Here's an example, f/1.8 ISO 1250 - just resized down no sharpening or other adjustments. It's limited as much by the ISO as lens here.

To me it's a no brainer, the Sigma delivers on the IQ and the price of the DA* is ridiculous. It's not that huge. About the same as my 10-20.
