Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Lens Coming Soon?

The above video was shot at the recent CP+ Show in Yokohama, Japan. Sigma has been on a roll lately. They even boast their upcoming 50mm f/1.4 DS HSM Art lens may equal the performance of the Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4

Third party lens makers are getting to be quite good and Sigma’s recent releases have garnered very good reviews. The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 Art and 35mm f/1.4 DG HSM are prime examples of their recent success. Little is known about the upcoming 50mm lens except it will be lighter than the Zeiss 50mm, perhaps in the neighborhood of about 800g  / 28 oz. The suggested retail price for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens may be well over $1,000.
