Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens (Canon) Review (By TDP)
Bryan Carnathan at The Digital Picture published the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens (Canon) review saying ” Exceptional image quality, including impressive sharpness and negligible distortion, is right at the top of this lens’ advantages.”
From The Digital Picture:
While zoom lenses typically win the popularity contests, fixed focal length models generally have some strong advantages and the Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens is a “prime” example. Exceptional image quality, including impressive sharpness and negligible distortion, is right at the top of this lens’ advantages. Having the f/1.8 aperture at a telephoto focal length can be a game-changer and there is a special wow factor in the background blur this combination creates.
The 135 Art lens brings more than just great image quality – it is the full package. Great looks, quality design … perhaps the only missing feature is optical stabilization.
The Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens is an exceptional portrait photography lens. Even if portraits are not necessarily your thing, this lens may send you seeking portrait opportunities. And, the image quality the 135 Art delivers will cause you to pull it out for any other use you can make 135mm work for. I’m nearly certain that you are going to like this one!
The new Sigma 135mm f/1.8 DG HSM Art Lens is now in stock and shipping in the US for $1,399.
