Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Arriving Friday for Testing

Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art

Get Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art and Sigma DG HSM Art lenses at B&H Photo.

The about $1199 Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art looks to be another fine 'Art' lens from Sigma, which is to say that it outperforms anything Nikon and Canon offer, or at least it looks that way based on the MTF charts (and as per past experience at 24mm and 35mm and 50mm).

As a stroke of luck, the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art shows up on Friday courtesy of B&H Photo, a day after the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4.

While there is no entirely relevant direct comparison to make (DSLR vs mirrorless and 1.5 stop difference in speed), having both at the same time will lend better perspective on image quality (same shots, same scenes) than shooting separately.

For the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art, the most relevant comparison is to the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G and to a lesser extent due to its manual focus, the Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4. The Canon 85mm f/1.2L II is also relevant (and I own it), but at this point I have only the Nikon-mount Sigma 85/1.4.

I’ll be testing the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art on the Nikon D810 (coverage in DAP) and the Zeiss Loxia 85mm f/2.4 on the Sony A7R II (coverage in Guide to Mirrorless).
