Don't waste your money

terecia, Amazon

  • Summary: I rented this lens because I was trying to decide on purchasing this or the nikon 85mm 1.4. This lens was used on my nikon d7000. The auto focus was horrible. I will definitely save to purchase the nikon. The color is not very rich,and the focus was blurry at 1.4...

Not a great substitute for the canon

Paul E. Serafini, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this because I couldn't get myself to pay the $2,000 for the canon. The build quality on this was GREAT. It's built like a tank, but it seemed to miss focus very frequently, obviously a depth of field issue, but even at 2.2, 2.5, etc. It always seemed to miss.

Great when it works

  • Summary: This is a wonderful lens when it works. Great bokeh, good solid build, sharp images and a good looking lens. However I've had severe issues with the autofocus. A few months ago the lens jerked back and forth while trying to focus on an object half the time.

Can see that it WOULD be great

  • Excerpt: On my second copy of the lens, same issue with both...with the flash on, set to one-shot focus mode it will not focus accurately to subjects more than 10 feet away. In all other situations (even in ai servo mode) it's beautiful - sharp, fast, great bokeh, but I am a wedding photographer and often...
  • Pros: Nice Bokeh
  • Cons: Blurry Focus, Heavy, Poor in Low Light

Hey Sigma, Fix it before selling it.

  • Summary: This lens has an auto focus glitch. Looks like I got one of the lenses with the "mr sensor" issue that everyone is talking about. Here is the problem in action: [...] You are taking a chance on getting one with this issue when buying it online.

Huge, huge potential...but not without some flaws.

  • Summary: I've been testing out the exciting, new Sigma 85mm 1.4, and as unworthy and unqualified as I am to be a professional lens tester, I feel compelled to informally share my findings... 1.

erratic focusing and front focusing

supreme, B&H Photo
16 November 2010
  • Excerpt: I purchased two of these and the 1st had front focusing issues and the second one has very erratic (jumpy) focusing. I'm going to try for a 3rd one. If 3rd doesn't work I will stay with my 85L. I would have given the lens one star but it gets an extra star for including a bag.

Sigma - Einmal und nie wieder

Heidi Facherson, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: Hab mich als Canon-Liebhaber aufgrund des unschlagbaren Preises zur Abwechslung mal für Sigma entschieden und mir diese 85mm Linse gekauft. Mein Urteil: Die Linse ist an und für sich ganz gut im Porträtbereich und erzielt einen schönen Bokeh-Effekt, solange man mit der chromatischen Aberration leben...

Tolles Objektive scharfe Bilder mit einer super Freistellung des Hintergrundes. ABER nur mit MF für Sony Alpah 77

  • Summary: Das Sigma 85mm ist ein sehr gut verarbeitetes Objektiv. Das Gehäuse so wie die Lackierung machen einen tadellosen Eindruck. Da ich leider den AF nicht testen konnte kann ich hierzu nichts kommentieren.

Exzellentes Objektiv... wenn es trifft!

Käthe Kirsch, Amazon
8 May 2013
  • Summary: Vor kurzem habe ich mir das 85 1.4 von Sigma aufgrund der durchwegs positiven Rezensionen im Internet gekauft. Das Objektiv soll, so liest man, vor allem im Bereich der Portraitfotografie eine Nummer für sich sein. Dementsprechend groß waren meine Erwartungen an das gute Stück.
