Lens Breakdown for Photographers: Canon 50mm 1.2 vs. Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART // Happy Hour with Hope Episode #18

The last week of May is here!!! The ending of a month means the ending of a Happy Hour with Hope topic and it’s always bittersweet. But, this is definitely the May video that I have been MOST excited to share! Last year, I started to have focusing issues with my Canon 50mm 1.2 lens. So, I decided to purchase the Sigma equivalent to see if it corrected some of the issues that I was having. While I still absolutely LOVE both lenses, one definitely beat out the other and has become a staple in my bag. So, in today’s video, I am comparing and breaking down the two 50mm lenses to share which one wins out as the MOST USED lens in my bag!!!

Here are some recent images taken with my Sigma 50mm lens:

    I’m shoot nikon, and I LOVEEE my Sigma 50! It’s so reliable and sharp. The only downside is the weight, but totally worth it.
