I own the Nikon, and a Sigma 50 f/1.4. I think at this price vs $200 for the Nikon, I'd get the Sigma.
Reviews saying the Nikon is better were factoring the Sigma at $450, not $269.

Or maybe they just realize that at f/1.4, when you're obviously going for as little depth of field as possible anyway, who cares what the borders look like when they aren't even supposed to be in focus for your shot? Plus, the bokeh beats the pants off of any of Nikon's comparable offerings.

Sorry if it seemed like i was attacking you but im actually trying to find an alternative to this lens. I don't want to purchase a crop sensor only lens.

This lens is pretty darn good at F1.4 in the center of the frame. Yes, there are focus accuracy problems but the image quality of this lens is nothing short of amazing @ $269.
The Nikon 35/1.8 will focus better & perhaps even have better build quality but the bokeh of the Sigma is MUCH nicer.

I'm not trying to argue, it's just the decision I made for myself. I will save the money. If people think they want this lens, go for it!

|biggiep||Considering how the demand among Nikon owners is so low for this lens (to the point where it has been discounted $50 more than the Canon version), I don't know if I should be jealous as a Canon owner of better crop-sensor prime lenses for the Nikon mount.|

|89titanium||I am just better off getting the 35mm 1.8 by Nikon? How often will I need the extra aperture, or the extra 5mm? It's cheaper, and it seems Nikon lenses will give slightly better image quality.|

|michi098||The new lens is a lot better but also a lot more expensive. On the other hand, looking at some online reviews, this lens isn't very sharp wide open which is the only reason I would get it for. Was kind of tempted, but I think I'll skip. Thanks for the heads up though OP.|

This deal is good but be aware of new pricing due to updated version coming out.

And they are on sale because new version is coming out.
If you want it get it. If you can buy better more expensive version then wait.
