After hearing all the praise for Sigma's Art line of lenses I decided to purchase the 35mm and I could not be more happy with my purchase. It is sharp wide open and the bokeh is beautiful. I'll be adding other prime lenses from their art line to my camera bag.
This is a beautiful lens at a really great price point that takes some really really nice pictures. I use this lens on my Rebel T5 and I have had some excellent results. I typically only use 3 main lenses on my camera - I keep the 24 mm mounted most of the time, use this 50 mm for mid-range photography and portraits, and a telephoto when necessary. This lens takes some really crystal clear pictures. I have attached some pictures of a london broil on my grill (because now that I have this lens I just want to take pictures of everything with it). With some good natural sunlight, you can get incredible pictures out of this lens. I have also added some bird photography pictures from my recent trip to Costa Rica. I know it is tempting to use a zoom lens for all animal photography because of how difficult it can be to get up close,, however unless you are spending > $1000 on a telephoto lens, the quality of a zoomed in lens will not come close to the clarity of this 50 mm prime lens. It is worth it to spend the time and effort getting close to your subjects with this lens and getting some awesome pictures. I can barely even consider myself an amateur photographer, so my opinions aren't necessarily the most valid, however I love this lens and have not found anything better for the money yet. Definitely recommend!
i like how quickly you can change lenses with their magnetized rims and with a minor alteration to my pelican case i no longer have too remove my cell phone protector case in order to use these camera lenses!
Back in the 1960s, I was impressed to see Canon lenses on TV cameras in a TV studio I was doing an appearance in; a subsequent trip to Tokyo's Ginza led to some serious camera shopping- a Canon 35mm SLR and lenses (50mm+ 200mmtelephoto) which served beautifully for the balance of my 'round-the-work-journey following a year of travels through India.Years later, I upgraded the body to an A1 and ultimately transitioned into a 5D/ii, which evolved into an SL-1 with impressive zoom lenses. the comfort, ease of use,reliability and impressive images have always been present in all Canon photo products, and have consistently justified my continued investment in these quality products.
