    Cons: Can\'t use the outer focus points on Nikon D7100. Heavier than a Nikon 50/1.4. The temptation to use wide apertures close up will test your focus discipline.

    Pros: Unbelievably sharp, even wide open. Great colour. Good (not great) bokeh. Very well made, like all Art series lenses. Balances well on a D7100 with grip.

    Summary: If you shoot a lot at wide apertures (1.4 to 2.8) no 50 can beat it. I\'m still amazed when I chimp my images. As an old Leica-M shooter, I have a style that relies on lenses in the 28mm to 75mm range. My basic lens is the 18-35 Art, and this 50 is my \"long\" lens. On my APS sensor it\'s what I always dreamed an autofocus 75mm Summilux-M would be. Bravo Sigma.
