Wonderful lens!

  • Summary: This is the first lens I have spent a decent amount of money on and it was totally worth the purchase! This is such a great portrait lens. It produces such sharp and beautiful pictures! The bokeh is amazing with this lens too. Can't wait to use it on my upcoming weddings!

Sharp, fast, and quick to focus

Nathan David Chilton, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: This lens is quite sharp wide-open and quickly became my favorite lens to photograph indoor volleyball. I had been using the Pentax 50-135mm f/2.8 lens, but this 85mm focuses much more quickly and gives me an additional two stops of light. I've wanted an 85mm for a long time and I'm really loving it!

Great lens

  • Summary: Wonderful lens, sharp, a grand less than the Canon 85mm 1.2 II L series. Heavy and durable (try not to use with extended battery, would be too heavy).

Is the worthy competitor of firm analogs.

  • Summary: High-quality optimized for work with digital cameras a lens, ideal for portrait shooting and any genres. The lens of a professional series, very successful, at the expense of the price and given-out quality is the worthy competitor of firm analogs. Top-level color rendition, colors bright and juicy, even in the dark room.

super nice lens

  • Summary: I couldn't quite bring myself to buy the Canon L 1.2 because of the price. This is an awesome lens that fills the gap between the super expensive L (and super nice I might add) and the low end 85mm lenses. I highly recommend it!

Best combo of value and quality in an 85mm

JasonF1, Bestbuy
16 February 2014
  • Summary: I have used both the Nikon 85mm 1.4 and this Sigma lens, with equally impressive results.
  • Pros: Affordable, durable, sharp
  • Cons: slower autofocus, not Nikon (if you are dedicated to a brand)

A fantastic lens for the money

Chris Aram, Amazon
29 January 2014
  • Summary: Great optics (sharp, nice bokeh) and sufficient autofocus speed (more than the Nikkor 85 f/1.4 which costs $800 more!) I've used this lens for 80% of my portraits over the last few years, paired with my D3. It's truly a great value.

Easily compared with Canon L f 1/2

Farid, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: I have both Canon and sigma 85mm lens. absolutely Canon 85mm f/1.2 is better for larger aperture and glass quality but not more than $400 or $500 .if you are not a wedding photographer with a lot of income , Sigma 85 f\1.4 is a high quality portrait lens for you.

Great lens!

Al, Crutchfield

  • Summary: Good portrait lens. Sharp wide open, stopped down to f4, it is sharper than my 24-105L, which is a very good lens.
  • Pros: Image quality. Expensive, but a steal compared to Canon 85 f1.2L
  • Cons: A bit heavy, but not that big of an issue.
