Not about any "hype cycle" for me, was just genuinely interested in folks opinions of the bokeh. I use the 50mm (f1.8G) pretty much strictly as a short telephoto portrait lens and have been happy with it while other seem very unhappy with it because of it's nervous bokeh. The 58mm is out of my price range and there don't seem to be many 50's in the <$1,000 range that are known for portrait/bokeh and I was curious to see how the Sigma would fare in that regard.

Why not look at the outgoing Sigma 50 f/1.4 EX DG HSM? That was one people bought instead of the Nikkors for the bokeh. From what I've seen looks a lot better than their new 'ART'.
