Can't help you with the Sig's but I've been pretty happy with the 50mm f1.8G. It gets a bit of a bad rap IMO. I rented the 58mm hoping to see a huge improvement (especially bokeh) but didn't. Here are a couple test snapshots for your own perusal/judgment:

I really expected to see more differences between the two lenses, the differences here are not very noticeable or very subtle at best. I noticed they are stopped down just a bit and these were shot on a DX camera.

Does anyone here have any comparison images between the 50 Art, the 50 f1.8 g and the 58 f1.4g shot at the same time , same subject with a full frame camera. I'm personally would like to see what either the 58 or the 50 Art would bring to the table over a 50 mm f1.8g.

These are from the 50mm 1.8g
