If you ever hang out with me you'll notice that for the most part, I am a prime lens shooter. Not that I don't like zoom lenses, but they don't have a great place in my bag for what I do. At the moment I have an 85mm prime and the 35mm prime, both from SIGMA. Those two lenses seem to be able to cover everything I need to do from portrait to full body images. Lately, I've been thinking about adding something in the middle, probably a 50mm. Talking with the SIGMA rep, he suggested that I try out the brand new 40mm F1.4 DG HSM. He kindly offered to send it to me to use for a month, well, of course, I'll said yes! When I received the lens in the mail, the first thing that I noticed was this lens was a substantial piece of glass. The build quality on it is impressive, it definitely feels like a solid lens.
Knowing that I had the lens for 30 days, my goal was to put it in as many scenarios as I could to see how the lens performed.
