Some more examples at lenstip:

To me, it's very good, without ring highlights and it's smooth in the back and also in front of focus plane - even in most demanding bokeh shots with trees branches backround.  It's also very sharp and contrasty at 1.4! (look at postbox photo). If I'd be in market for a 50mm lens, this would be definitely strong contender. I have a Zeiss Planar 50mm 1.4 and it can't be compared to this Sigma - Zeiss is inferior. From what I could conclude from those pictures, my Zeiss is about equal at F2.8 to Sigma at F1.4 (comparing central sharpness and contrast)...

It seems that Sigma has another winner here...
