Ultimate Fight - Sigma 50 Art Lens vs. Canon 50mm F1.2L

Before we start we must know that the battle is between Sigma vs Canon prime lenses (where is tamron?), being a budget photographer I always keep eye on price tag + specification / performance of a product…..  starting from the current price

  • Sigma ART Lens – 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens price is approx $949.00 at B&H and Amazon and
  • Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens will cost you $1,619.00 (no need to give buying links.. i know you will not buy this lens after reading the comparison below)

Now its time for image comparison (all image credit belongs to famous Wedding photographer will chao, website here with more image comparison)


My first reaction was WOW, both lens output look soooo amazing.. the bokeh is very creamy.. but the real test start from the image below..


The output from Sigma 50mm art lens look more sharp than Canon L Lens, I am really amazed to see the result. For more confirmation I have added one more shot below


Once again.. the Sigma 50mm ART Lens output is sharper than Canon 50mm L lens, and finally the bokeh at 100%


Oh No… the Bokeh of Sigma is more creamy compared to the bokeh of Canon 50mm L lens…

so if a third party product is giving excellent performance at an affordable price..we must give a chance to Sigma. Sigma ART Lens – 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens is a clear winner of the comparison.  Sigma ART Lens – 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM available at B&H and Amazon

at the end again thanks to will chao,( website here )
