A fast, reliable portrait lens from Sigma
With this latest addition to their excellent Art range, Sigma goes even further to cementing their position as a premium lens brand as opposed to just another third-party budget brand. This new 85mm f1.4 Art lens is a portrait photographer's dream optic, with a perfect long focal length, fast f1.4 aperture and outstanding optical performance. This lens is suitable for both full-frame and APS-C format Digital SLRs, providing a more magnified 127.5mm equivalent on the latter, making it useful for indoor sports and wedding applications.
Great for shallow depths of fields and beautiful bokeh, as well as sharp handheld shots the Sigma 85mm Art lens offers a large f1.4 maximum aperture. Shoot this lens wide open and only the portions of the image that you focus on will be in focus, ideal for creating dreamy, eye-catching portrait. For stills and for videos this lens is a great performer, owing to the excellent HSM autofocus motor that is driving the focus. As well as providing pinpoint accuracy, it is always fast and quick to achieve focus, which are all desirable features for shooting movies and for maintaining discretion when shooting live subjects.
Overall this lens has been built with care and love, both physically and optically. Sigma incorporated Thermally stable composite materials, which helps the lens retain a lightweight and compact size whilst remaining sturdy and durable. Optically Sigma has employed various lens elements that produce a high level of image quality and the reduction of any aberrations and distortions. Flare and ghosting have likewise been counteracted by the application of super multi-layer coating.
