Overview

Description by Sigma:

  • Designed for use with full frame digital cameras. May also be used with smaller APS-c size sensors with a corresponding effective increase in focal length to about 127.5mm with most cameras
  • HSM (Hyper-Sonic Motor) ensure a quiet, high speed autofocus and full-time manual focusing capability
  • SLD (Special low Dispersion) glass element and glass mold elements for superior optical performance
  • Minimum focusing distance of 85 cm
  • A lens hood, hood adapter, front & rear lens caps and carrying case are included with the lens.

Sigma’s New 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM lens is a large aperture medium telephoto lens optimized for use with digital SLR cameras and is especially ideal for portrait and low light photography. Designed with SLD glass and a glass mold element excellent color correction is achieved for all types of aberrations and superior optical performance is ensured. It is equipped with a rear focus system that minimized fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing and the Super Multi Layer Coating reduces flare and ghosting even in backlight photography. HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) ensures quiet and high speed autofocus capability and the round 9 blade diaphragm creates pleasant out-of-focus highlights. It comes with a Petal-type hood to block out extraneous light. For digital cameras with an APS-C size image sensor, a dedicated hood adapter, which expands the length of the lens hood is supplied and enables the hood to block out extraneous light more effectively.

* Pentax mount lenses cannot be used with SF series AF cameras.
* Nikon and Pentax mount lenses do not have an aperture ring.
* If the camera body does not support HSM, auto focus will not be available.

Reviews

"There's a lot of glass in any 85mm f/1.4 lens, and as a result Sigma's version of this lens feels quite weighty at 725g. This weight isn't necessarily a bad thing though as it feels very solidly put together as a result. Unlike many manufacturer's own flagship lenses, this lens has no weather sealing to speak of, but in my opinion that feature isn't necessarily a deal breaker with a lens like this.

The exterior of this optic is different to older Sigma EX lenses.
