I am very happy to offer an exclusive deal to all Canon Watch readers, kindly sponsored by authorised Canon dealer Adorama.

Get the awesome Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART lens with a $100 discount. The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 is yours at $849 by clicking this link and entering coupon code CWWEEKEND at checkout. Regular price is $949. The offer ends Sunday, 8/2/15, 11.59 PM EST.

The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM lens got only excellent reviews. The Sigma 50mm f/1.4 competes handily with Zeiss’ Otus 55mm f/1.4, a lens that sells for $4000! Among all the masterpieces Sigma’s optical engineers delivered in the last years, the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 might be the best. And, yes, the lens hood is included.
