Re: Baby Portrait Lens Advice

I have the Sigma 50mm f1.4 ex dg hsm and the Canon 50mm f1.8II, the difference in use is night and day. The difference in result is less apparent to some than others. The Sigma is sharper wide open, much nicer bokeh, and obviously 1/2 stop faster. It's a lot larger/heavier, and the AF is HUGELY better. Here are some shots from both.

Sigma at f1.4

Canon at f1.8
