Sigma 50mm F1.4 Art Magic – Part II
This lens is so magical that we have to do a part II – Featuring Jino Lee.
01st July 2014, Singapore – Following our first review of the New Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM ART, we are no doubt impressed with “Everything Sigma”. From the lens build to the image quality, there is certainly no reason not to get the New 50mm from Sigma. Although we are sold on buying Sigma’s New 50mm, we just want to be sure and have another professional photographer to confirm our findings before we make the purchase. The editorial team decided that we should pass the lens to Jino Lee whom we recently interviewed for a featured article. Every photo you see on this article were shot by Jino Lee using the New Sigma 50mm F1.4 DG HSM Art lens with a Canon DSLR.
Jino is known for his excellent “street sense” mainly due to his strength in travel photography and street photography. Having a 50mm lens in his hands allows him to look & frame subjects easily as 50mm is the “unofficial street lens” which Jino is very familiar at this focal range.
“The new Sigma 50mm is well-designed and well built. I agreed with the Editor AL that this lens feels much more expensive than it really is. It is good to know that this is not just purely cosmetic as the lens produces excellent photos with lots of colors & details which is very essential for most travel or street photography. The images are sharp and contrasts are well balanced – and there are barely any visible distortion at all – making this lens an excellent standard lens for most prime lens users.” – Jino Lee
You heard the man. Indeed, Sigma’s latest offerings are already on news headlines since the “Global Vision” revamp of the company. A few earlier releases has already bagged awards if you know which other Art, Sports or Contemporary lenses I am talking about.
Hope all of you enjoyed Jino’s review photos featured here using the New Sigma 50mm ART. Since a photo speaks a thousand words, I will leave you to the millions with Jino’s photos.

Special Thanks to Jino Lee for reviewing the lens.
