I just wish Sigma would pay some attention to the size and weight of lenses like these. There is no reason a 50mm f/1.4 lens should have a filter size larger than 58mm, and that's being very generous.

Sigh...

.
They did it to reduce vignetting wide open. It's not like they decided to get huge expensive piece of glass in there for no reason. May not make much of a difference on APS-C, but us FF guys appreciate it....

The big 50 is my default lens just now. Yes, it's not the lightest thing out there but its other properties compensate for that.
Sorry to say this tenpointnine, but that photo would actually chase me away from a lens
That's the worst colour I've ever seen.

I don't think that you've done anything wrong, however I'm kinda thinking that your monitor may really need colour calibration

I hope that you don't mind, I took a moment out to do a little correction. It isn't perfect, however I think that you'll like it better.

Excellent! I wasn't aware this lens was available in Australia right now. Might have to give CR Kennedy a call. Perth CR Kennedy or Melbourne?
Call Melbourne. This lens just arrived recently.

I called Melbourne CR Kennedy to buy this lens a few days ago, they told me that they don't sell to public, and I should buy from a shop.

And both way too soft -- looks like it front focuses a bit.

Its allright - the focus is on the brows, or maybe on hair above forehead. With 1.4 you have really shallow DoF to deal with.
Anyways its a keeper if you ask me.

Still looks too soft to me. Mine's a fair bit sharper at f/1.4, but that may be because I am shooting it on full frame.
