Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM ART Lens Hands-On At CP+ (and some new tidbits)

The video by YouTube user PhotoNewsReviews shows a brief hands-on with the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens at CP+.

You probably know that Sigma aims at the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 with the with the 50mm f/1.4 Art lens, no less. Certainly a bold claim, but given Sigma’s recently released, awesome lenses, this is a claim we should take seriously. The Sigma 18-35m f/1.8 Art (see coverage here) and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM (see coverage here) are good examples of recent, excellent lenses made by Sigma.

The new tidbit we have is the weight of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4: 815 g/28.7 oz. That’s a bit less than the Zeiss 55mm (Canon mount: 1,030 g/36.3 oz) and way heavier than other 50mm f/1.4 lenses. Not a light-weighted lens, but also a sophisticated lens form an optical point of view.

A few weeks ago there was a leak on an Australian retailer, showing the (suggested) price for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens: AU$ 1,499, about US$ 1,345.
