Field testing the Sigma 56 f/1.4
17

I just received this lens, and wanted to post a few random images from the weekend. My first impressions are that this is a pretty stellar lens in all respects. It renders detail beautifully, focus is quick and accurate, and build quality feels fine. The fact that it is priced way less than the Fuji alternative is yet another plus for this lens. To me, the 1/3 stop speed "advantage" that the Fuji offers is not relevant for anything I will ever encounter. As much as I like the aperture rings on my other Fuji lenses, the lack of one in this case is not a deal breaker at all.  I adore the Fuji 50 mm f/2, but this raises the bar for short tele image-making in my opinion.
