Re: Lets see your 58mm samples, was it worth it?

Like all premium lenses, the worth is totally subjective. I was a naysayer of this lens. Coming around to it now after some use.  Bought to compare with the Sigma 50mm which I have not gotten yet.

While the sharpness is definitely lacking compared to the Sigma 35mm I own, it is by no means soft. I have printed a few of my images at F1.4 at 20"x30" and they look great. I have no doubt that one could also print at 24x36" and have it hold to some wall pixel peeping

Still shooting photos of the kids/misc and not using it for paid shoots.  I do that with all of my new purchases to make sure I'm comfortable and know that I can trust the lens.
