Sigma has announced that the price of the 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens announced in January will be £849.99 including VAT.
Canon and Sigma fit will be available in May, with Nikon fit following in June. When Sony and Pentax fits will be available is still to be determined.
Sigma say this lens delivers both high resolution, and beautiful bokeh. While pursuing a high level of resolution on the focused point, bokeh in front and behind the point of focus is carefully maintained to have soft rendering. Aberrations including sagittal coma flare and color distortion that affect the image quality are thoroughly corrected. From open aperture, high-definition rendering without blur is achieved.
