Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art quick review..
1

Just got this lens and I am impressed. I review this lens on Nikon D500.

The reason I bought it is to gain one shutter speed stop over 70-200mm F2.8 so I can shoot concerts.

First I attached to the USB dock to find out distances and then I ran the test at these distances. I did not test infinity because I will never shoot at infinity. After testing the only setting that needed a little adjustment was at 2 meters of -5 on all FLs. All other distances/FLs are spot on.

Lens fit and finish is in line with other latest Art lenses. It focuses extremely fast from either direction.

Sharpness is OMG. Here is a test taken in RAW processed with default no sharpening added. This is at F1.8. The only sharpness like this I have seen from stop down lenses to at least one stop. I really don't care about bokeh much.

The only negatives I see is that focus ring is upfront so I have to support the lens by the hood otherwise my hand wants to change focus. The second negative is the collar. I don't care that is non removable but it should have been longer with more holes. Or it should have been made like on 70-200mm Sport with replaceable foot.

If I don't respond to your post after you responded to my post with NEGATIVE remarks that means you are on my Ignore list.
