Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX HSM DG (EOS) - APS-C format Review / Lab Test

photozone.de
8 February 2011
  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX HSM DG delivers a convincing performance on APS-C DSLRs although it stays somewhat short of the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM L II here. The lens is impressively sharp in the image center - even at f/1.4 - but it's comparatively softer towards the borders/corners here. However, the Sigma is nothing short of excellent in the range between f/2.8 and f/8. Lateral CAs are minimal and not field-relevant. Same goes for image distortions.

Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM (EOS) - Review / Lab Test

photozone.de
7 February 2011
  • Conclusion: It took Sigma quite a while but the Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM is finally here - their first ultra-large aperture tele prime lens. It was about time to get some serious competition (with AF) for the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 USM L II. The Sigma lens is capable of matching the performance of its Canon counterpart although it doesn't beat it. Unsurprisingly it follows the same optical characteristics.

Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM (FX) - Review / Test Report

photozone.de
3 February 2011
  • Conclusion: It took Sigma quite a while but the Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 HSM EX DG is finally here - their first ultra-large aperture tele prime lens. It shows a performance characteristic that is typical for many lenses in this class, but it does so on a very high level. The image center shows excellent resolution and high contrast at any tested aperture, whereas the borders/corners are fairly soft at large apertures due to coma effects.

  • Conclusion: The Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX HSM DG delivers a convincing performance on DX DSLRs. The lens is impressively sharp in the image center - even at f/1.4 - but it's comparatively softer towards the borders/corners here. However, the Sigma is nothing short of excellent in the range between f/2.8 and f/8.
