Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art Lens Review (EphotoZine)

sigma_85mm_f14_art_on_canon_5d_mark_ivJohn Riley has just posted a full review of the new released Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama/ eBay) at the ephotozine.com. He tested this new art lens on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and finds it is one of the best portrait lenses for Full-Frame DSLRs. 

Verdict form the Ephotozine, “The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens is a high class, highly competent design that performs confidently and efficiently. It is of the modern breed of 85mm lenses, sharp from open aperture, as opposed to older designs that were intended to be softer wide open for the purposes of flattering portraits. This new lens is sharp throughout, although not cruelly over-sharp, so subjects should be pleased enough…”
