Marc Alhadeff has just tested the new Sigma 135mm F1.8 DG Art FE lens (AmazonB&HAdorama) on Sony A7R III and posted a full review at the sonyalpha.blog.

This is a superb optics for outdoor portraits“, conclusion by Marc Alhadeff,” Considering the focal length and aperture, the size and weight is reasonable and much more manageable than the Sigma 85mm F/1.4 DG HSM Art

  • Sharpness is exceptional including in the corners even wide open at F1.8
  • Bokeh, background blur , color rendition are very good
  • AF its fast and silent and its efficiency is  good in general but with still some issues vs a Sony lens : expect to get 15% misses focus (tested on Sony A7RIII)
  • Ergnomics are ok but not perfect
    • no focus hold button that could have been assigned to eye Af 
    • No aperture ring which makes it less practical and more noisy for video

Below are several sample images. Just enjoy!
