I was trying to save some cash on a 50mm f/1.4 for my Nikon d7000. I see the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 costs almost $400 USD. I thought a 3rd-party lens would be cheaper so I checked out the equivalent Sigma and was shocked to find that it costs almost twice as much!
I've heard with camera lenses the saying goes that "you get what you pay for." So I was surprised by how expensive the Sigma was, because I thought Nikon glass was top-notch and third-party lenses were a way to sacrifice on quality and save some money.
What's going on here?
