Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM

Large aperture, standard prime lens for the latest digital cameras 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM - SIGMA CORPORATION

Haven't seen much talk about it here. Search function shows me nothing. If any of you good folks have valuable information on it, could you tell me a bit about it? Thanks!

I have it. Its great lens, sharp, fast and bokeh looks great. Itīs also build like a tank, feels solid in hands and its good balance with K20D..
I payed only 350€ of mine, i got it used (only 3 weeks old still)

It focuses fast, as well. Here's a silly video I made:
YouTube - Sigma 50 f/1.4 HSM Hunting on a Pentax K20D

If you don't mind giant primes (I don't mind the size much), then you won't be disappointed. Look out for tungsten light, though: k-7 is the only Pentax DSLR that does NOT mis-focus under tungsten light.

I haven't yet had it in my hands, but the lens' weight and size won't be a problem, asdf, if it's decently big. It gives me more space to grip onto.
