Re: Oly 45mm 1.8 vs Sigma 56mm 1.4

There isn't much argument about the quality of the Sigma lenses, particularly at their price point. As a 45/1.8 owner, though, I love the lightness, very compact size, and IQ at 1.8. Very pleasing to my eye. And like the Sigma, priced very competitively.

However, in the interest of full disclosure, you're going to get some strong suggestions to consider the Pany 42.5. It's pretty highly regarded and also priced competitively.

There's a lot of options in this range and really no stinkers. Might serve you well to rent them and see how they feel to you.
