Re: Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART

Nope. The Nikon 58 was designed by Haruo Sato as a personal project of sorts - a lens that he believed lives in the spirit of the Noct-Nikkor, a lens with a distinct (and non test chart biased) rendering. I've researched his designs and his philosophy and in everything I've read about the 58 Nikkor, I come away strongly believing it was not made primarily to be a DX portrait lens. Not saying that it can't be used as such, but that was not it's primary intent or purpose in life. Not even close. Nikon as a lens company isn't even really paying attention to DX designs, so that right there tends to indicate they're not going to emphasize DX oriented lenses at this time anyway.
