Re: Keep my new 50LF1.2 or return it for a 50mmArt ?!?

i loved my 50L and have now had it and the sigma side by side for a week - the 50L will be up for sale soon
The sigma is sharper, i find it's bokeh just as good, contrast is better wide open, f1.2 was really just bragging rights for me, i don't however like the size and weight of the 50art - i think i'll be using my 40mm pancake when i can't be bothered carrying it

remember with portraits you might not want to see every little skin imperfection, and the 50L has just the right amount of softness in that regard
