  • Sigma has produced an excellent lens here: as sharp as any of its contemporaries, even wide open at ƒ/1.4. As well, the lens offers remarkable tolerance to chromatic aberration, marred only by the presence of longitudinal chromatic aberration that seems t...

  • Abstract:  The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens (average price: $969 on various Internet sites) is designed for full-frame cameras; with an APS-C multiply by your usual factor. At about 25 oz, I’d describe the lens as substantial, but not hefty. One of the reaso...

  • the Sigma 85mm F1.4 is up to the task of filling that space in your bagWe know from experience that many photographers dream of having a fast, high quality 85mm in their camera bag, but that dream frequently goes unrealized by the prohibitively high co...

  • The Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX HSM DG delivers a convincing performance on DX DSLRs. The lens is impressively sharp in the image center - even at f/1.4 - but it's comparatively softer towards the borders/corners here. However, the Sigma is nothing short o...

  • The Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX HSM DG delivers a convincing performance on APS-C DSLRs although it stays somewhat short of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM L II here. The lens is impressively sharp in the image center - even at f/1.4 - but it's comparatively s...

  • It took Sigma quite a while but the Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 HSM EX DG is finally here - their first ultra-large aperture tele prime lens. It shows a performance characteristic that is typical for many lenses in this class, but it does so on a very high le...

  • It took Sigma quite a while but the Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 HSM EX DG is finally here - their first ultra-large aperture tele prime lens. It was about time to get some serious competition (with AF) for the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM L II. The Sigma lens is c...

  • Sigma have created a real gem here. This 85mm f/1.4 is a relatively affordable wide aperture telephoto lens, that is capable of producing superb results. The lens handles well, feels very well put together and costs hundreds of pounds less than manufact...
