Re: Best 50 mm lense!

I had a 50mm F/1.4 for probably close to 10 years before the focus gears gave out.  I don't baby my gear, but I take pretty decent care of it.  Personally I waited and saved for a 50L.  I shopped a long time and almost pulled the trigger on the Sigma 50mm F/1.4 but decided in the end I would still want the 50L.

I have to say that I really didn't shoot that much with the 50mm F/1.4, I didn't like how it felt on the camera and was never very happy with the photos.  Since I've gotten the 50L it has rarely left my camera.

Hi everyone, I am looking to purchase a 50 mm lense for a Canon t4i. I have been reading a ton on the different lenses offered and I'm currently debating these three: Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 50mm f/1.4, and the Sigma 50mm f/1.4.

I would greatly appreciate any comments/concerns for any of these! I have heard that the Canon 1.8 often gets stuck in cameras, the Canon 1.4 freezes and stops working after a year of use, and I have heard only great things about the Sigma 1.4.

Thank you so much in advance
