Re:Peepers are coming out of the woodwork

Well spoken.

My own interest in the Sigma 50 Art is if it is sharp, to the corner, at distance as well as being very good in the test chart range. I don't shoot 50mm enough to justify an Otus, and at 50mm I require AF for some of the tasks, so it doesn't matter how good the Otus is anyway. For the tasks I need I don't care about bokeh - at all - if I cared about bokeh at this focal length I'd get the Nikon 58/1.4 in a heartbeat. My guess is the Sigma 50 will be an excellent studio and landscape lens where detail is the primary components of it's image quality, more than bokeh, flare resistance or anything else. And if it is, it's likely going to be something I'm very interested in. But it's far too early to tell for sure based upon a couple of test chart tests (slrgear and popphoto) and a couple of pics.
