Shootout: Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art vs Zeiss Milvus 85/1.4 (Siemens Chart, Nikon D810)

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

The Lundy Beaver Ponds and Snowy Spur of Mt Conness series both showed disappointing performance with the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art.

One can make the “bad sample” argument. Accordingly, I obtained another copy of the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM (brand new also), and pitted both against the Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 on a Zeiss Siemens chart at close range, to see if the results would echo the field shootout findings.

...

This shootout compares two samples of the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art to the Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 on a Siemens star chart.

  • Sample #1 of the Sigma 85/1.4 is the lens used for the November 2016 three-way shootouts and examples; it was brand-new out of the box for that work.
  • Sample #2 of the Sigma 85/1.4 was brand new out of the box and never shot prior to this test.
  • The Zeiss Milvus 85mm f/1.4 was about a year old, and has seen field use over that time.

Shootout: Sigma 85/1.4A (Two Samples) vs Zeiss Milvus 85/1.4 (Seimens Chart, Nikon D810)

One center crop from f/1.4 through f/4 for all three lenses makes a compelling confirmation.
