Reviews around bokeh (5.00 of 5)

  • When I tested the pictures that this sigma took and compared it to the Nikon OLD 85mm 1.4d, Agreed that the pictures from this sigma (once you set the sharpness right :)), the Bokeh and the color contrast are just amazing....however comparing it to the OLD Nikon 85mm 1.4D, I did not see a huge difference in the pictures
  • It did not bother me because I was getting sharp images with amazing bokeh but can be a concern for some people
  • This lens to super fast, very sharp at f/1.4, and creates a beautiful bokeh background
  • I'm a long time 85L user, and was hesitant to lose the quarter stop of light and incredible bokeh
  • The tradeoff of it being a heavy monster it makes up for in sharp photos and creamy bokeh

Reviews around image (5.00 of 5)

  • It did not bother me because I was getting sharp images with amazing bokeh but can be a concern for some people
  • The images from the new lens look great, the auto-focus snaps in quickly
  • The images are crystal clear, and the background is a creamy blur
  • , it's amazing, it's like the canon 85L just more refined and faster, images are so so so so sharp, the weight of it is very nice too and it feels very well made, just amazing over all, not complaining.
  • The 85mm is much larger but leaves you with the most amazing images you will ever shoot

Reviews around tune (5.00 of 5)

  • you have a problem with this lens and you're not fine tuning the
  • Sigma makes it extremely easy for you to fine tune the focus on your lens
  • Then ran the AF Fine Tune on my camera which further "strengthened the marriage" between the lens and the Nikon D7200 body
  • mm filter is not a common size but you can still find some with B+WThis lens is heavy tooI don't recommend using this lens on a crop body or a smaller body without battery gripFocus is right on with some AF fine tune in cameraThe focus speed and accuracy is way better than the Sigma 35 1.4 AOptical quality is amazingI use this lens on D810 bodyYou can see every single pore on people facesNot a complaint, but expect some skin smoothing on a imperfect face

Reviews around mm (5.00 of 5)

  • 12mm but for portraits at a desired focal of 85mm only the art can master that.
  • If you're considering a fast 85mm, you can't go wrong with either one - but I'm quite happy with my choice.
  • I rented the Canon 85mm and loved it, but all of my peers pressured me to get the Sigma
  • Currently have the Sigma 20, 35 & 50 mm Art Series lenses as well as the original, and much beloved 85mm.

Reviews around use (5.00 of 5)

  • An absolutely amazing lens, quite possibly the best lens I've ever used
  • You haven't seen sharp unless you've used Sigma's Art series lenses
  • At the price point it sells, it is the best lens that I have used so far

Reviews around sharpness (5.00 of 5)

  • First, the sharpness wide open is outstanding, the only thing that changes going from center to the corners is vignetting, sharpness visually stays the same
  • When this lens hits the mark, the sharpness is simply amazing

Reviews around art (5.00 of 5)

  • I am a portrait photographer, and with young kids (who can't sit still) the 85L sat in my bag while I used the trusty 70-200 f2.8L. Having own and love the 35 ART, I was very exited to try the new 85 ART
  • 12mm but for portraits at a desired focal of 85mm only the art can master that.

Reviews around quality (3.61 of 5)

  • After around 5 hours of work, the quality/ sharpness/ color contrast is far better on this Sigma than the Nikon 85 mm.in my opinion, this lens is better because it delivers a better or comparable quality at a lower price point
  • The build quality is fantastic, and the giant focusing ring is a pleasure to use for photos and videos
  • The quality of the material and the lens are ASTONISHING
  • I'm using the 6d and the quality is unbelievable.
  • I highly recommend to calibrate the lenses for the best quality possible

Reviews around lense (3.61 of 5)

  • awesome lense
  • Or maybe the new Canon f/1.4 L lens rumored to come out this year?
  • but I also want to let people know that these lenses are not perfect out of the box
  • This is probably one of the best lenses I have owned
