Dpreview tested out the Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM lens which was announced this March. The lens performed exceptionally well as vignetting was hardly noticeable even in wide apertures. The solid build quality was another area where the lens managed to impress the reviewer. However the Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM lens isn’t perfect since  it won’t be available in a Four-Thirds mount and according Dpreview it’s quite heavy for a 50mm F1.4.

"It’s important to understand that this lens is currently very much at the start of its product lifecycle, and if the price drops to a level much closer to the other 50mm F1.4s, then it will be quite simply a steal."
