Is Sigma 50 1.4 a suitable lens for K5?

I have both the Sigma 50mm 1.4 and the 85mm 1.4, using both on my K5. Both are great lenses and I'd recommend them both. However I love the 85mm to death and it is my favourite lens by far! The 50mm produces some really good quality shots too but seems to be a bit soft in the centre sometimes. I don't do portraits though so can't really comment but I'd guess the 85mm might be a bit too long (my understanding is that 85mm was the choice for 35mm cameras. With the APS-C the 50mm is now equivalent to the 85mm previously).
So short answer: I think the Sigma 50mm, 1.4 would be a good choice!

Thanks Jean!



Haha, yes it was freezing and there's only a relatively short window of time between too little light and the sun coming through.



Thanks and yes, I agree, the shapes are intriguing. I think No 5 and 8 almost look like little soldiers... No 4 like an ice-ringed heart.

Problem is with these shapes, they are so tiny that I can't see them just by eye, so it's a bit of hit and miss with the shots...

That's exactly right, except the beers were the evening before. This was sunrise and a very chilly one at that!

Great shot! They are beutiful animals! The closest I ever got to one was when I nearly stepped on it (ironically looking out for good photo opportunities). Would have much preferred to have it on film than on my leg... but luckily it missed and disappeared. I think it was probably equally as scarred as I was (or more).

Easter trip to country Victoria, Australia. These were taken at sunrise on a vast flood plain near the River Murray where we camped, just us and some natives...

Once when I was in a camera shop to by a lens for my K5 another customer picked up a new camera the wrong way. The strap must got caught somewhere sending a brand new camera flying through the air, dropping on concrete floor and skidding for a couple of meters on the floor. I had a closer look, smiled and said: ah, it's a K5... You'll be fine. And he was. :-) (Shop assistants too were only worried about the lense and not the camera...)
