These elements, coupled with an advanced optical design, work to minimize sagittal coma flare and chromatic aberrations in order to provide high image sharpness and clarity. The lens' large diameter and floating system also help to correct for vignetting to ensure maintained peripheral brightness. A Super Multi Coating has been applied to lens elements, too, to reduce flare and ghosting for higher contrast and colour fidelity.A Hyper Sonic AF Motor, along with an optimized AF algorithm, produces quiet, smooth, and fast autofocus performance that benefits this lens' use in a wide variety of situations. This AF motor also permits full-time manual focusing control for refined precision by simply turning the focus ring at any time.Sigma Global Vision - ArtAs part of the Art line within Sigma's Global Vision series, this lens' is designed to achieve truly notable optical performance and is ideally suited for creative and artistic applications.Moulded Glass Aspherical ElementThis lens has been designed using an advanced optical structure to achieve both high resolution and sharpness along with an aesthetic out-of-focus quality for greater subject separation. A moulded glass aspherical element corrects for sagittal coma flare and enables full use of the fast f/1.4 maximum aperture with maintained sharpness and clarity. This design also works to minimize vignetting, colour blur, and other distortions help to produce natural and pleasing bokeh for selective focus and shallow depth of field techniques. By reducing these aberrations, this lens is also well-suited to astrophotography or other situations with point-light sources due to its ability to suppress blur near the edges of the frame.Special Low Dispersion Glass ElementsThree SLD (Special Low Dispersion) glass elements have been incorporated within the lens design to correct for axial chromatic aberration throughout the entire focusing range. This helps to ensure maintained image sharpness, clarity, and contrast regardless of focus point or aperture setting.Large Diameter LensIn designing the lens with a large 85.4mm diameter, and placing the widest elements within the front group, greater peripheral brightness is more easily attained when working with larger apertures. This design also lends itself to minimizing vignetting throughout the aperture range for greater clarity and detail across the image frame.Super Multi-Layer CoatingA Super Multi-Layer Coating has been applied to lens elements in order to minimize lens flare and ghosting and contribute to producing contrast-rich and color-neutral imagery, even in backlit conditions.Floating SystemBy employing a floating system, the distance between glass elements is adjusted during focusing in order to limit the amount of lens movement required when shooting. This floating system helps to realize a minimum focusing distance of 1.3' with a maximum magnification of 1:5.6. Additionally, this design also contributes to high detail rendering capabilities throughout the entire focusing range.Hyper Sonic AF MotorThe integrated HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) realizes quick and quiet autofocusing, which is further complemented by an optimized AF algorithm to produce smoother focusing performance. The HSM also permits full-time manual focus control simply by rotating the focus ring at any time.Other Lens Features
·A rounded nine-blade diaphragm helps to produce an attractive out-of-focus quality.
·The lens is constructed using a Thermally Stable Composite (TSC) material, along with traditional metals, for greater precision and use in wide temperature variations. The outside of the lens barrel is also engraved with the year of production.

- LOVE this lens!- January 17, 2019
I debated whether to get this or the high end Canon equivalent. I was able to test the Canon at the same time I purchased this lens and I have to say, for a lens that is significantly cheaper, I feel I am getting better shots with this lens. The bokeh is amazing when shooting wide open. Beyond that, it is quick to focus, virtually silent and creates sharp, crisp images. I could not be happier with my purchase. If you are personally debating whether to get this lens or the Canon, I don't think you would be disappointed with this. Oh, here's another thing, Sigma offers a four year warranty for their lenses AND if you call them, you get to talk to someone quickly. They are a family based business and I find their level of customer service far superior to that of Canon's.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- The sharpest lens I have ever used.- January 26, 2016
Fantastic lens. I recently upgraded from the Canon 50mm 1.4 and I have to say this lens provides an entirely new level of sharpness. The images my 6D can produce with this lens have blown me away. This is well worth the upgrade from the Canon 50mm 1.4 if you are considering it. The build also just screams quality and you really feel like you have spent your money well after using it. Highly recommend.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- AMAZING!- December 15, 2019
We have rented Sigma lenses in the past and ended up loving their performance in comparison to the Canon L series lenses for half the cost! So sharp, vibrant colors, etc. We now own a Sigma 30mm, and now this Sigma 50mm. 100% would recommended to any photographer who wants great quality, without having to spent too much money!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
