Sigma 50mm F1.4 | First look!

Sigma 50mm f1.4 first shots.
Just received the new Sigma 50mm F1.4 and due to heavy sunshine I couldn’t really in a fair way try it wide open – but even if the above shot is taken at F4 the bokeh is amazingly sweet.

I was thinking it would be bigger. a whopping 500g piece of glass could have been heavier. It’s pretty short and very fat somehow – gives a very cool impression – big opening that tell you I’M BRIGHT.

Alright, another shot at F2.5 and a shutter speed of 1/3200s. A friend holding a reflector to even out the light a bit. The widest I could go was F2 – so here goes another shot at F2.

(This one is not perfectly focused, it’s kind of hard at F2 – hard training lays ahead)

I will try hard the coming days to find other things to photograph and hopefully I’ll be back with some nice pics.

    I knew you’ll hve this lens much before me. Your sister are looking soo nice. I hope I will see more, soon… ;)

    I wish you also could take some pictures with the SD10 50mm. It would be interesting to compare against the SD10 30mm, ’cause your SD10 pics were so nice, so great…

    God I want that lens!!! Been happily snapping away at the 30mm but noticed it’s sometimes a tad too wide for me. Thus had to go with the 2.8 50mm macro.

    Nice Bokeh!! Can’t wait to see you shoot wide open!

    Looks good… where did you buy the lens? I can’t find it anywhere.
