Re: Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART

I never was blown away with the Sigma 85. Didn't have the bokeh, flare resistance, sharpness, or contrast of the quite excellent 85/1.4G. For me Sigma majorly upped the quality of their optical designs when the 35/1.4 came out.

Even with that, as much as I love my Sigma 35 (and I use the hell out of it), I'm of the opinion that its coatings aren't as good as the better Nikon and certainly not the Zeiss lenses. That's the one area they could improve upon a little bit. Thus, I won't be rushing off to buy a Sigma 24/1.4 if they make one - the current Nikon 24/1.4G will be far harder to beat for landscape use than the Nikon 35/1.4G was, given it has very good sharpness and amazing contrast and solid flare resistance.
