Re: Some of the old Minolta lenses are spectacular.

I'll second that vote for the Sigma 24-105 ART lens!!! For low light I bypass f2.8 completely. I use a Tamron 45mm f1.8, another great lens even sharper than the Sigma.

Probably about the same as the Sigma 50 1.4, but lighter and less expensive.  Both are very fine choices.  I just wish we could get the Sigma Art 12-24 or the 20mm prime.  24mm just isn't wide enough for a lot of shots of scenery and architecture.
