excellent lens

By

from Yachats OR  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Used this lens for the first time at Thanksgiving, in very low light, wide open. Even though I was still getting used to the lens, the images turned out stunning. Extremely clear and crisp where in focus, and nice bokeh. Focus acquisition is a little slower than for my 70-200/2.8, but I'd expect that for a f/1.4 lens

Nice portrait lens

By

from CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I have just purchased this but I had demoed it before deciding to buy it. It is a very nice portrait lens and very fast at f1.4. I took some shots at f1.4, f2, etc. and was amazed at how sharp they were. It was also much less costly than Canon's 85mm lens.

Can't compete with Nikon

By

from Illinois  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I bought this lens to replace a very old Nikon 85mm f/1.4D, which I was planning to keep as a backup. The Sigma is just ok. There is nothing awful about it, but the focus seems a little slower and slightly less accurate than the Nikon. I had hoped for faster focus than my old lens. The bokeh is also not nearly as pleasing as the Nikon (in my opinion).

Good lens?

By

from Spring Hill, KS  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I am not a fan of third party, off brand lens' but over the last 40 years I have bought some and tried some more. After reading mostly good views of this lens. I decided to give one a try. After all it is the best side of a grand cheaper. It is not an "L" lens but it is close. Don't think you are getting one because you are not. You will be getting outstanding optics and rugged build. Not weather resistant. The imagines are spectacular and my copy has worked perfectly right from the box. I use a 1D Mk III and a 5D Mk II. You get a hood with a sorta silly extender for use on a APS-C sensor camera. No extender for the APS-H sensor, however. Nice padded case that serves as the shipping protection. I can recommend the Sigma 85mm f1.4 EX without hesitation.
