Since I’ve been working with the Sigma Art 35mm f/1.4 I was waiting for the 85mm to arrive, but it took around 3 years so I’ve been waiting and waiting. In the meantime I was thinking about to buy the Canon 85mm f/1.2 but the price is crazy (€2099) and I’ve heard the Auto Focus is quite slow.
In September’16 I went to Photokina in Cologne were the Sigma ART 85mm f/1.4 was announced and I compared both lenses here. Click at the link and you will be surprised! The photo you see is made with the Canon lens and if you go with your mouse to the image, you will see the results with the Sigma lens. The lens was sold out every time, but finally it is mine now! I’m very excited to use it during my shoots, and of course this lens is going with me to Barcelona!
Ok I must admit, the only disadvantage is that this lens is heavy (1,2 kg) and big (12,6 cm long and a filter size of 86mm), as you can see on the photo above, where I compared the Sigma ART 85mm with the ART 35mm lens.
