Amazing lens! Having previously used the Canon 85mm f/1
3 weeks ago
Summary: Amazing lens! Having previously used the Canon 85mm f/1.8 for years, the Sigma really took the image quality to the next level. The sharpness of the in focus area is phenomonal, and the blur of the out of focus area is super smooth with great bokeh. It's a lens that meets high expectations for sure.
Excerpt: I recently purchased this Sigma lens because a friend of mine asked me to take her daughters senior pictures. I have NEVER been asked to do such an important job before because I'm basically a soccer mom photographer, taking photos to use for our end of year banquet slide show and so other kids...
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: - This lens is tack sharp, quick focus. I compared it with Nikon 85mm f1.4 side by side, as sharp, as good for 2/3 of the money, I would say it is slightly sharper in the center. This lens just basically add magic to your photos. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT. Thanks B&H for great customer service
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: My primary reason for buying this lens is the f/1.4 aperture. That means that it has to deliver the goods WIDE OPEN. And it absolutely does. Contrast is striking and bokeh is buttery. It may not make ugly people beautiful. But it'll definitely help.
Excerpt: Bought this lens for use in portrait photography. For the cost - excellent. I have used it on 3 sessions and a bunch of my own "for fun" work. Satisfied with image quality and lens performance. No need for me to spend twice the amount I paid for this for the top Canon 85mm. This does the job.
Excerpt: This lens is GREAT! I am so happy with it. It is spot on, so sharp. Yes, taking pictures with f/1.4, you have to be precise but that is with any fast lens. But this lens exceeded my expectations. I took pictures of my Grandson playing tennis, and I couldn't be happier. So happy I purchased this.
Excerpt: I'm only sorry I didn't invest a lot sooner in better glass!! This lens is beautiful and the sharpness is amazing! I don't have the Nikon version so I cannot compare but I'm loving this lens and the price was excellent!!!
Excerpt: I use this either on a full frame camera (usually studio) or on an APS-C camera (usually weddings/events) for an equivalent focal length of approximately 135mm. Typically stop it down between f2.2 and f5.6. I like the focus speed, colour, sharpness and constrast. Great value for money.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
