Stacey is absolutely, 100% spot on correct here.

I've typed this before, but will again: The more I shoot with the D800E, within the context of a set of lenses that would be considered/graded "very good" to "world class", the more I'm struck by how the "winner" between two candidates might be completely different and dependent upon different use cases. If I mostly shot close/mid distance environmental portraiture, particularly in natural light, and was shooting often between F/2 and F/4, yea, I'd have a 58/1.4 even while screaming about it's (to me) overpriced price tag, because that is what Sato designed the thing for, and that is what it excels at. For sure.

Since I don't shoot that sort of thing at all with a 50 (I'd use my 200 for that), and my needs are for another use case, I shoot the lens best matched to that use case, which is clearly the Sigma 50 art.
