The German Blog Docma is the very first site testing the new Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens. Tested on the 42MP Sony a7RII with MC-11 Lens Adapter, this new Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art lens is sharp from edge to edge even at f/1.8 aperture and “Its background softening qualities are (almost) unrivaled, which should be appreciated by fashion photographers“.
Conclusions from Docma: (Translated by Google)
If you prefer people and objects from a distance than to be in the midst of the turmoil, the Sigma 1.8 135mm style will love. Its background softening qualities are (almost) unrivaled, which should be appreciated by fashion photographers, especially if they want to stand out their whole-body models from the background. Technically, the Sigma 1.8 135mm style seems to get along without compromise. Apart from the dimensions, which are not unusual for these focal lengths, for size and weight.
