Fall

James Schmelzer

Canon 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/400 sec. F3.2 200

One of my signature shots with high school seniors to have them walk and then I snap the photograph when the foot is in a forward motion as I am walking in front of them. I make sure I am keeping a constant distance from them.  In this photograph I wanted the fall colors to show around the subject so I chose to use the 50mm.  This was shot at f3.2 1/400 iso200 50mm

Flying High

Judy Host

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/125 sec F16 160

Since I started photographing dancers I find myself reaching for Sigma’s 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A to give me a “real perspective” of my subjects. Whether they are flying through the air, or just dancing in place, this lens captures all that movement with such amazing precision. Sharp from head to toe, no matter the distance from my lens to their body, this lens has become another workhorse for me and a lens I can’t be without. 

Airborne

Judy Host

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/500 sec F5.6 160

Sigma’s 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A  lens is my first choice when shooting full body shots with some background to enhance the overall image.  This image on the beach in the middle of the day with wind and sand in my face made it a challenge to focus on my moving subject.  Trusting this lens to be both sharp and fast, my image couldn’t have been more perfect. I photograph in single shot mode, and manually move my focusing points to how I want to crop my image. I need to anticipate where my moving subject will be at a certain point in order for my subject to be in perfect sharpness.  With this lens, it’s a breeze.  The 50mm has become a lens I can’t work without.

Dreaming

Judy Host

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/125 sec F2.0 400

Sigma’s 50mm 1.4 Art lens has become my new favorite lens this year.  My style of shooting with a wide open aperture suits this lens because it is incredibly sharp at it’s widest opening.  This image of Jennie was created using window light and as you can see it’s beautifully sharp with very little softness around the arms.  The detail in the scarf and the quality of the light makes the viewer feel like they could almost touch the silk and feel the gentleness of it.

Carlotta

Judy Host

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/1000 sec F1.4 320

When photographing for my clients, I don’t always get to choose the time of day to photograph in.  This mid afternoon session was a challenge for me because we had clear skies and a very warm day.  The location provided some shade with the trees and overgrown flowers in the background. I wanted to shoot at f 1.4, so all my other settings had to be bumped up in order not to overexpose my image. I set my shutter speed at 1/1000 to let in less light and make the image extremely sharp. Lastly the ISO was also bumped up to 320 when normally I would be shooting at 100 in this kind of light.

Ben

Judy Host

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/160 sec F11 100

My session with Ben took place in the studio using ProFoto lighting equipment.  Using a single light source, one large soft box, my settings were f 11.0 1/160 ISO 100.  Normally, when photographing in the studio, I will use an aperture setting of f 8 to f 11. Ben was almost one year old when I created this image of him.  At this stage of his young life, he’s unable to walk on his own.  This is the perfect time to bring these little one’s into the studio because they can’t get to far on their own.  For this session I was using Sigma’s SD1 Merrill Digital camera with a Sigma 50mm 1.4 art lens.  I love the clarity this camera and lens produce.  So amazingly sharp you can see the specular highlights in his eyes.

Local political campaign photography. No tricks or gimmicks. Natural light only. Minimal post correction in Lightroom to adjust color temperature and contrast very slightly. No additional sharpening. Shot in RAW on a Canon 6D. Testament to how beautifully this lens renders imagery and detail. Bokeh is very pleasing and beautiful natural vignetting is one of the greatest hallmarks of the new ART line when shot wide open that I NEVER correct for in Lightroom. Proud owner of this 50mm and the sister 35mm. Anxiously awaiting the 85mm ART.

Remember Me

David Delahoussaye

Canon 50mm F1.4 DG HSM | A 1/160 F/6.3 200

The inspiration behind the photo was to create my subject into something beautiful but still have a sense of sophistication. I didn't want to make her seem as if she is just an object on a couch but a beautiful person which is why I chose an all black background, all focus is on her. I chose a corset because I have always been a fan of the 16th century and Victorian era.

This photo was taken at the Iezer Lake, Ialomita, Romania. We arived at the location at about 3 PM. It was Christmas Eve and the location couldn't be better. It usualy snows at this time of the year in Romania, but not this year. It was an incredibly hot weather. I put the camera down, focused manualy and joined the shot while the timer started. We weren't there to shoot this picture, but we did, and i'm glad to share this with you. Thank you Sigma!

Great but needs weather sealing
Great lens, the Auto-focus works so good on a Canon 5Ds no issues. The picture quality is also very impressive and got its own characteristic. But I wish it would have a rubber sealing at the mount as rain is a daily occasion here in Ireland ;) Compared to EF50 1.4f the Sigma is much better even the AF is better on the Sigma than canons own native lens. If you look for the best 50mm on EF take this lens, it is so easy.

what a sharp lens!
I'm one of the fussiest photographers on this planet, very demanding and always expecting the best quality possible. This wonderful lens delivers it like no other. I am using 50 megapixel Canon 5DSR and this lens is the sharpest by far in my collection. Well done Sigma!

excellent image quality overall
Influenced by the rumours about this lens I bought it the day it was available in my country. I had another 50mm f1.4 at that time and could do a perfect comparison. Next to the build quality which is obvious from the moment you feel the lens, this lens has excellent image quality. Less of CA, less vignetting, no purple fringing even wide open, sharp corners wide open, I am overall very pleased with this lens. The only comment I could possibly make is the rather disappointing smallest possible aperture. And of course the price, but don't we all want to buy gold for carrots?

Wow!
OK.... I'm going to be painfully honest here! I'm am not a fan of after market equipment... especially lenses. I bought this lens because my dealer (who I have known and trusted for many years) recommended it. He knows my aversion to after market lenses and equipment. I shoot with Nikons and have always enjoyed Nikon lenses and the quality of the image produced by the higher end Nikon lenses. I have not shot a lot with this 50 so far but what I have shot I am very impressed with the image quality! Wow! This lens is sizable chunk of glass but the image quality, so far, has been superb! Nicely done Sigma... Nicely done!
