The Nikon 50mm's get criticized for bokeh. Here are some new images from the new Sig 50mm f1.4 ART. Thoughts?

Seems very disappointing.

My Nikon 85mm f1.4 has much, much better bokeh - but of course it was also a good deal more expensive.  Mind you, the Sigma f1.4 also has very inferior bokeh, compared to that Nikon lens.

At the end of the day, if one is going to splash on a luxury item, might as well go the whole way.  This Sigma "art" is just about the most expensive there is (barring the Zeiss) but I personally would hate to have spent that kind of money, and end up with such average to poor bokeh.  Ouch!

I think even the humble Nikon 50mm f1.4G, has better bokeh.
