I have the Sigma 20mm f1.4 ART. Beautiful results, only downsides are 1) it is not weatherproof 2) it is a big beast 3) it cannot readily take a filter - not that you'd often need one in the age of digital other than maybe a circular polarizer.

Did you satisfied with the sharpness and colour and contrast of Sigma 20mm f1,4 ?

However I much prefer my Tamron 15-30mm f2.8 G2. It is much more versatile than the Sigma 20mm prime - its surprising how often you'd want either something wider or tighter than 20mm without having to carry and swap out lenses. And at the wider end the difference in usage between f1.4 and f2.8 is usually more theoretical than actual.

The Tamron is weatherproof. It can take a gel filter of sorts next to the rear element.

I know but didn't want to spend money on expensive holder & filters for Tamron 15-30mm
