The purple fringing and soft colors are holding me back, if I can get say Jose B's copy then I'd feel much better dropping $1k on it.

I bought this lens 17 days ago, on the last day of November, after considering the purchase for about 3 years. It has become my favorite lens. Or at least one of them.

I very much agree with :

Pocket Lint. This lens isn't for everyone, as Pocket Lint says. The Sigma Art is sharper and cheaper.

The photo below is f/2.2 in easy light.

If you want to use it at f/1.2 in a complicated lighting situation, it may not be what you are looking for. But I really like mine.

Maybe it is more expensive than it should be, maybe there are better choices, but I like mine.
