Style Name: Canon Digital SLR Cameras
I've always been hesitant to try sigma lenses because I hear a lot of problems that people have with the focusing on them. I passed up on the widely regarded 50mm f1.4 and 30mm f1.4 even though they got stellar reviews for the most part. When Sigma came out with the 85mm f1.4 for less than half the price of Canon's 85mm f1.2 L II, I had to see if it would save me a bundle in my search for a great 85mm.

I took some time to compare this one to the 85mm f1.8 and the 85mm f1.2 L II by renting all three before making any decisions, and I have to say that this lens really impresses!

The Sigma lens is much lighter than the Canon f1.2 and therefore, much easier to handle. The first thing that comes to mind when putting the canon f1.2 on my camera is how awkward everything feels - it's weight and "top-heaviness" really throw the balance off (I'm using a 7D) and makes the whole set-up feel wrong. With the sigma, I don't get this feel.... it feels right. It feels like almost a rubbery-plastic, and while the canon f1.2 feels more solid, the Sigma feels more modernized to me. The Canon f1.8 is no slouch, but feels lacking compared to the other two in build quality. The Sigma comes with a unique 2-part lens hood to help avoid hood vignetting on full-frame cameras. There is a middle section that you leave off if you are using a full-frame camera, but then add back on if you have a crop camera.

As for image quality, I'm not going to go too much into detail here because other reviews across the web have conducted much more scientific tests than me and provide images to compare. I will just summarize my experiences though: in my opinion, the Canon f1.2 has the sharpest photos, especially in the center of the image. The Sigma bests the other 2 in corner sharpness though. The f1.

I am a pro wedding photographer who shoots primarily with zooms. I use prime lenses more as specialty lenses when I want to narrow depth of field or in extreme darkness. I own the Canon 85 1.8, itself an excellent lens, and rented a Canon 85 1.2L, a fabled Canon staple. The Sigma is actually better than the 85 1.8 at large apertures and rivals the Canon 85L in almost all respects. Compared to the Canon 85L, the Sigma is slightly more compact and lightweight. It's build is similar to my Canon 35 1.4L. More importantly, the Sigma focuses faster on all of my cameras--5D, 5DII, and the 50D. The Canon L has the advantage of being weather sealed and accepted by Canon Professional Services for pros who are members. The Canon 85L is also unique in that it opens to 1.2 rather than just 1.4.

The Sigma autofocuses faster than the Canon L and almost as fast as the Canon 85 1.8. There have been reports of this lens hunting, having seizures, and making squeaking noises. If your copy of the Sigma does any of these things, return it immediately as you definitely have a dud copy. Mine rarely ever hunts, the autofocus is smooth, quiet, and accurate. The lens is tack sharp even at 1.4--as sharp as the Canon 85L at wide apertures and with similar color and contrast. Like with 85 1.2L, the depth of field wide open is razor thin and requires precise precision in where to put the point of sharpest focus. The faster focus of the Sigma does help in attaining accurate focus quickly.

In summary, I feel Sigma got it right with this lens. It is truly an alternative to the 85L at half the cost with similar image quality and actually faster focus. The Sigma does have a different bokeh than the Canon L. Not necessarily better or worse, just different.

>>>>>>>>>>>> The long >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I'm actually writing this review about 10 months after having sold this lens which I have used at probably a few dozen weddings and portrait sessions. Btw, the price you will potentially get on the used market sucks if you buy this new, so better watch out for a used copy if you don't care about the 30+ days warranty.

The Sigma 85mm f1.4 for Nikon is actually a great lens. You can use it indoor (=usually short-ish focusing distance and no straight sunlight) at low light levels with f1.6 or even f1.4 with great results (amazing results!). For outdoor portraits stay at f1.8 or better f2.0 unless you like chromatic aberration or unsharpness (the same goes for many other lenses including Nikon's products though). However, if your focus point is very close and you're all in the shade then f1.4 will work too, but not if you're focusing on something further away. Again, in this case stay at f1.8 or above and you will get tack sharp results. The bokeh is pretty nice. I really loved this lens and just sold it at that time to justify spending $1,400 on the Sigma 70-200 OS which is my bread & butter lens (and it used to replace the 85mm for many portrait sessions).

Why I'm writing this review NOW is because after a while of exclusively using a 70-200 for portraits (which has some benefits) I have bought a Nikon 85mm f1.8G (not the D which is not as good as the G) and I'm getting the same great results with it at f2 that I used to get with the Sigma at f2. For a lower price. With less weight. And a highly desired more value-keeping original Nikon lens (if you plan to sell your lenses again at some point).
In comparison the Sigma has a beautiful bokeh but the Nikon has a beautiful bokeh too.
