3-Way Shootout: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art vs Zeiss Milvus 85/1.4 vs Nikon 85/1.4G (Snowy Spur of Mt Conness, Nikon D810)

Get Sigma DG HSM Art and Zeiss Milvus at B&H Photo.

Update 21 Nov: I fixed a presentation bug in which only the Sigma 85/1.4 was showing in the crop series.

This 3-way shootout compares the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art to the Nikon 85mm f/1.4G and Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 on a scene with exceptional levels of fine detail all at “infinity”, that is, at least a kilometer away for everything.

This series complements, extends and confirms the Beaver Pond series. By using a scene in which there can be no question of near/far issues from depth of field, lens performance is laid bare without regard to DoF concerns.

Shootout: Zeiss Loxia 85/2.4 vs Batis 85/1.8: Snowy Spur of Mt Conness

Includes images up to 28 megapixels and large crops, from f/1.4 through f/11 for all 3 lenses.
