Makes the other vendors 50mm look really bad.

canon 50L has 17p and the Nikon 50 1.4g with 15p

The nikon is 16 and costs half. The 1.8g is just as good(or poor) for an quarter of the price. So they are still good for the money. But the Sigma 50mm art can get some real traction here. People want some real data out of their 36mp sensors right.

So the sony looks like it's worth the price. I take back everything I may or may not have said about being overpriced for an f1.8. With these results it's just worth it. And anyone that is denying that is probably just a sore loser fanboy.

The Canon 50mm L is just not worthy of the good L name.
