Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Gets Gold Award at DPReview


DPReview published their full in-depth review for the highly anticipated Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. And this Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art lens got an impressive 93% overall score and Gold Award from the experts at DPReview.

Conclusion from DPReview:

The Sigma 85mm F1.4 Art offers some incredible image quality for the price, with outstanding class leading sharpness, excellent subject isolation and bokeh performance. The F1.4 aperture makes it a fantastic choice for low-light events and portrait shooting. The lens does experience some purple and green fringing when it’s shot wide open at F1.4 in harsh backlit conditions, but stopping it down to F2.5 eliminates it entirely. All in all this lens is one of the best portrait lenses we’ve seen to date and at a bargain price for the performance.

Good for: Portraiture, low light event shooting, street photography and architecture photography

Not so good for: Harsh lighting conditions when shot at F1.4
