    Sigma 50mm f1.4

    OK, OK, OK, so the review spends all it's time talking about d1g1, but if we really have an advance in design for a 50mm (EOS users at least!), shouldn't we just be happy?

    Dear Peter,

    You did not read it propperly: IT IS A NEW PRIME LENS FOR THE CANON EOS !

    It looks good, but if it is a replacement for the existing EOS lenses ? I have no Canon, so somebody else might want to comment on that.

    Greetings, Peter

    Hi Peter

    The chart at the link below suggests reasonable usability with many AF Nikons, but not with the manual focus models.

    Why didn't you say that in the first place ???
    d1g1........ that's a "f"-word out here........

    Looks a great lens, they have a 1.4/30mm allso and I have seen some great results from it on 1/2 35 (18x24mm like the old Olympus Pen F)

    Just trying to be carefull and Analogue !

    Unfortunately the 30mm/1.4 doesn't cover 35mm film, just APS-C sensors.....

    Hmm, I think that I'm becaming a bit too much "old school". Now I don't trust lenses that lack diaphragm ring...

    Oh they work fine on the propper camera, but I like the sliding of the aperture ring on my Copals and Compurs too.

    The reviewer has tested them on the Nikon D3x and Sony A900, both of which I understand to be full frame, plus he also talks about compatability with "all EOS cameras back to 1988", which definitely would include film.

    The 50/1.4 Sigma is a fullframe lens that will work on film or digital but I thought the 35/1.4 was small sensor digital only and wouldn't cover film or fullframe digital.
