Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM: A Fast, Full-Frame Prime

 

The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 EX DG HSM lens (average price: $969 on various Internet sites) is designed for full-frame cameras; with an APS-C multiply by your usual factor. At about 25 oz, I'd describe the lens as substantial, but not hefty. One of the reasons...

As good as the Nikon at half the price!

 

What can I say, the old S(t)igma attached to this manufacturer has been blown away. I\'m a Nikon nut, used both their current f1.4 85mm options, one is blown into the weeds,the other is pushed hard in every respect by the Sigma. I may even venture that...
