IMG_4574-RT-Edit© Marty Wachi Photography 2014_The first opportunity I had to photograph Stephanie was at a Meetup put on by the SoCal Photo Assoc. We got some really great pictures that you can checkout at my Flickr page and my Facebook Fan Page.  I finally had another opportunity to shoot with her again and some of the photos from that shoot made it into Surreal Beauty Magazine’s  “ One Moment in Time” Jan., 2015  You can purchase a copy here!  As you can see Stephanie is a very lovely lady!

A slides show of the shoot is available here… A gallery of the photos can also be viewed here.

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lens for Canon Cameras

Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art Lens

I wanted to share some of my thoughts on my new Sigma 50mm f1.4 Sigma 50mmArt lens.  I pre-ordered the lens based on some of the feedback that I got from some of my Nikon friends that have purchased the same lens, but in a Nikon mount.  I am not really sure why the Nikon mount versions were available so much sooner than the Canon mounts.  So I placed the order with Amazon.com in May and finally received the lens July 17th.  Folks that know me, know that I am a kind of a photo sharpness snob.

 

Currently my go to lens have been:

  1. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro – This is an amazing lens for sharpness and detail, I love this lens for studio portraits.
  2. Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD – This is my go to medium length zoom, the VC on this is pretty phenomenal see an example of a night hand held shot without a tripod.  This example really shows off the capabilities of the Tamron + Canon 6D combination.
  3. Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM – Is my go to zoom lens
  4. Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM – This is a good general purpose zoom, but is it not as sharp as the other lens

 

For the last 6 months really the only two lens that I have been using have been the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM Macro & Tamron SP 24-70mm Di VC USD.  Now the I think the Sigma 50mm f1.4 Art lens, is going to be my new number 2 lens when I have the space to move around.  I can definitely say that the reviews that say the lens is sharp wide open is true.  I do not own the Canon 50mm f1.2L or the Canon 50mm f1.4 or the Canon 135mm so I cannot comment on how the Sigma compares, but based on the lens I do own, this is a great lens.  It is large for 50mm, the focus speed is decent, and it is heavy.  But on my 6D with the battery grip, the system feels well balanced.
