dpreview conclusion

The Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | Art is distinctly large, heavy and expensive for its type. However this is more than made up for by its fast silent autofocus, solid build quality, and absolutely outstanding optics. Overall it stakes a very serious claim to be the best autofocus 50mm prime on the market right now.

Good for

Full frame users looking for the sharpest possible images, even when shooting at large apertures

Not so good for

Anyone who shoots a lot in damp or dusty conditions
