The Sigma 28m F1.4 DG HSM Art (1250 euros) is a excellent lens 

Pros

  • Excellent sharpness ,
  • Fast, silent reliable AF
  • Superb background blur and very beautiful 3D effect at F1.4
  • Very good bokeh balls
  • Low distorsion ,
  • Low CA,
  • Lightroom Lens profile available to correct vignetting and distorsion

Average

  • Price (1250 euros)

Cons

  • Size 123mm

Optically it is much better than the Sony 28mm F2 , and if you like the 28mm focal length and are ready to support its weight and size it is a highly recommended lens
