The big question: is the Sigma 4 times better than the 50 1.8G?? I'd love to see shots sidebyside from each. I'm sure we will soon! Is it twice as good as the 50 1.4G? Nikon makes such good/cheap 50's already, so the Sigma will have to make a strong case.

On the other end, the Sigma has to convince Canon/Nikon shooters to give up on soft creamy bokeh coming from the 58 1.4G and the 50 1.2L. When you're spending $1000 on the Sigma, it migh be worth it to some, to spend a little extra for bokeh. The Sigma is going to make you choose between clinical sharpness and artistic bokeh.
