Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens

 

It is hard not to be drawn to a fast prime - the short, fat, solid-feeling lens with very low-light capability is very attractive.So, I don't find it surprising that the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM Lens has received a lot of attention in the early days...

Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM Lens Review

 

The 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM is the latest design from independent lens maker Sigma, announced in March 2008. It's a rare example of what is rapidly becoming an endangered species; an all-new, large maximum aperture, fixed focal length 'prime' lens, and...

Class-leading image quality ; Relatively low vignetting even at wide apertures on full frame ; Reasonably fast and positive autofocus, with full-time manual override ; Very good build quality

Large and heavy for a 50mm F1.4 ; Expensive

When Sigma first announced the 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM in March, our story headline (courtesy of our news editor and punmeister-in-chief) was 'A new standard?', and this has turned out to be remarkably prescient. This new lens essentially redefines its...

Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG HSM Lens

 

Any 10x SLR zoom lens (50mm x10 = 500mm) is going to be attractive, but one that ends with a 500mm focal length is going to get an especially high amount of attention. Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 EX DG HSM Lens, for this reason, but not for this reason...

However, stopping down an already slow lens with no image stabilization means you need a lot of light or high ISO settings to stop subject motion. To handhold this lens at the longer focal lengths, you need a lot of light, high ISO settings or a...

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM AF Review Round-Up

 

The new Sigma AF 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM is a refreshing alternative in the long-ignored standard AF lens market. The lens is fairly big and heavy due to unusually big glass elements but thanks to the design efforts it is already capable of delivering...

Sigma 50mm f/2.8 EX macro DG AF Review Round-Up

 

The Sigma AF 50mm f/2.8 EX macro DG is an excellent lens without any significant optical flaws. Compared to the Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 USM macro it shows less vignetting at wide-open aperture - other than that both lenses perform quite similar....

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM AF: Lens Test

 

Similar in size, features, and price (though not format) to Sigma's 30mm f/1.4 high-speed "normal" prime for DSLRs with APS-C sensors, this 50mm full-framer ($500, street) also belongs to Sigma's EX family of pro-quality glass. Unusually expensive...

Megazoom, The Sigma 50 to 500mm f4 to 6.3 APO Tele Zoom Lens

 

A long 10x zoom range is typically found on better movie cameras and camcorders--but rarely is offered for still photography.

General Electric X500

 

We've reviewed a number of superzoom digital camera in the last few months, all with two things in common: They have long zoom lenses, and they're all at least $300. General Electric takes a different tack with the 16-megapixel General Electric X500,...

Inexpensive. 15x zoom lens. Electronic viewfinder. Pop-up flash. Some manual controls. Simple to use

Mediocre image quality. Dismal low-light performance. Slow

The General Electric X500 doesn't excel in performance, but it aces value, packing a big 15x zoom lens into a $150 camera.

GE Power Pro X500 Digital Camera

 

While the much less expensive GE Power Pro X500 is technically a high zoom camera, its 15x optical zoom doesn't go nearly as high as competing models. It's also large and heavy, and felt poorly built. You won't be able to take lots of pictures in quick...

Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM (Nikon APS-C Fit)

 

Designed specifically for APS-C cameras with smaller than full-frame sensors, as denoted by its 'DC' suffix, the Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM zoom lens is available in Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sigma and Sony mount options. Once you take the crop...

Small but not too lightweight ; HSM autofocus and optical stabiliser ; Includes a focus distance scale, often omitted on budget lenses

Lack of outright sharpness at 200mm focal length ; Stabilisation only consistently gave a 3-stop advantage in our tests ; Not compatible with full-frame cameras

Overall, the Sigma 50-200mm f/4-5.6 DC OS HSM is a decent buy at the price.
