50MP full-frame sensor

Canon’s EOS 5DS/5DS R DSLRs are coming, and one area of interest is the level of detail achievable by the 50-megapixel sensor in combination with the best lenses.

Reviewed.com got their hands on a pre-production unit and took out the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art for a test drive. Judging from the full-res JPEGs (converted from RAWs), the 50mm Art fares very well, even wide open. The limiting factor here seems to be the noise from the beta 5Ds unit, which impairs resolution.

Check out the sample gallery over at Reviewed.

The Nikon-mount Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art is finally back in stock at Adorama and B&H. Not sure how long this will be true (the stock of the Canon version lasted a couple of hours).

Changing a bit from product images, the video above was shot on a Blackmagic 4K camera using the Sigma 50mm Art lens in Canon EF mount.
