Re: Sigma 50mm F1.4 ART Bokeh. Is it just me?

Preordered the new Sigma 50 Art...

I think this lens will be more than good enough for me, but I do have to admit that it doesn't look like bokeh will be one of it's strength. However, it's also not a deal breaker as the OP make it out to be. I'm very excited to see how it performs in terms of sharpness and contrast. If it's as good as the 35, then I will be very happy.

As to the OP, if bokeh is the "only criteria in picking a lens," then this lens and maybe even this focal length is probably not for you. As others have mentioned, you should probably look at the 85LII.
