Thanks for that illuminating post. I have the Sigma 50mm ART and was considering the Nikon. I've seen countless picture samples of both and I was beginning to understand how each one worked and the expected end result. Your findings about both have put words into what I perceived each lens to be.

As much as I like seamless transitions and bokeh smoothness, I feel I would be sacrificing too much of what I love with the Sigma and these have all been named in your post. Like you, for a grand I'd get it or at least try it out and sell it if it wouldn't suit me. Alas it's impossible to find even a used copy at that price especially here in Canada. Whenever there is a used one up for sale, it gets snatched at a price that is very close to brand new.
