Overview

The Sigma 85mm 1.4 is the standard for portraiture lenses. Its distinctive focal length and large aperture give it great movement between uses, from portraits to everyday images. Designed for full frame sensors, the 85mm 1.4 will work with APS-C DSLRs with an effective increase in focal length. Featuring a multitude of Sigma technology to further ensure unmatched image quality, the 85mm 1.4 is equipped with a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM) for quiet, accurate, high speed autofocusing, Super Multi-Layer Coating to reduce flare and ghosting, and a rear focusing system to minimize fluctuation of aberration caused by focusing. Truly designed to optimize available light, it has dedicated lens hoods to block out extraneous light, glass coating for better results from backlighting scenarios, and a 9 blade diaphragm for great background effects.

This was one of the first shots I took after unwrapping my new Sigma 85. Since my dog is always handy and usually willing, he was chosen as my first model. I chose the f/2.0 aperture to see what the bokeh looked like and because it was taken in my office at night - no flash - tough lighting conditions. Obviously, I am pleased with the results, especially the bokeh.

At a park near Washington, D.C., the sun briefly flashed through cloud cover that had made the day dark and dull overall, the beam reflecting toward me from the waves around this pair of geese. I quickly zoomed in the Sigma ultra-wide-angle lens I had been using for landscapes and captured this fast-disappearing picture, which turned out to be the best of the day. The photo is exactly as it came out of the camera on "program" mode: the stars on the water and on the turtle in the background are simply from the aperture blades.

The Maasai of Tanzania are a tribe almost 2 million strong. Their traditional way of life is being threatened by western culture and consumerism. although most Maasai are happy to take a dollar and have their photo taken, many still feel that a camera steals a portion of their soul, or life force. This beautiful Maasai mother, who had brought her child to a school for developmentally disabled children just outside of Arusha, felt a tinge of embarrassment at first sign of my camera. This is the first of several portraits I shot of her, with permission of course, as we built an ongoing relationship between shooter and subject. Her tenacious being shines through in this photo, even though we cannot see her face.

Take a beautiful bride, place her in front of a sparkling background then make photographs with Sigmaes brand new 85mm f/1.4 lens at f/2.8 and you have the recipe for ultra sharp portraits featuring buttery smooth almost perfectly round bokeh thanks to its nine bladed aperture. As much as I love zoom lenses, this fixed focal length maintains perspective as I move away or closer to frame the image perfectly. I lit this photograph with a Dynalite ring flash, a beauty dish and strip bank. A single head puts the highlights on the background.

On a walk to City Place in Las Vegas, I spotted the edge of a hotel against the deep blue desert sky. The vertical red sail offset by the horizontal lines at the top called to me. The wisps of clouds at the bottom of the frame suggest this building is as tall as the sky. The Sigma 85mm f/1.4 made the shot. I only take one lens on a walk. I love the way prime focal lengths make me work just a bit harder to make the composition. The results are way worth it.

Chinese newly wed at Öxará waterfall at Thingvellir National park, Iceland. My first wedding shooting with this lens, what a masterpiece, the clarity, the colors, the bokeh and the feel of working with it is mind blowing, a masterpiece of ART, obvious reason it bears the name A, I really wanna sell all of my Canon lenses and get the other ART lenses from SIGMA.

HOMELAND \ The Importance of Place

Dave Laslett

Nikon 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM 1/250 f8 160

The plight of Anangu includes an incredibly high cost of living, disruption of services and power as well as extremely low employment opportunities often resulting in the need for individuals and families to relocate away from community and country in order to survive. This severance of connection creates a multitude of social and emotional wellbeing issues. The Homeland is a deeply spiritual place that connects families and allows time and space to get out of town and reflect on ancestors passed on, customs and culture as well as educate the next generation. Amongst all of this resides a natural beauty emanating hope.

I choose the 85mm Sigma Fine Art lens as I needed a low light lense to do a Test Shoot with a model on location in an Old Growth Forest on the west coast of British Columbia. So pleased with the results.

Great lens, no regrets.
Beautiful lens, very smooth and quiet operation. Excellent detail, colour and tone reproduction.
I also bought the 50mm 1.4, another great piece of glass. Thinking about the 24-35mm F2.
Had anyone told me thirty plus years ago when I started shooting that I would be purchasing Sigma lenses I would have asked them what they are smoking!
Keep up the good work.

Mike.

Great Lens
Sharp lens (very sharp from f 2), excellent bokeh, good construction but fairly amount of chromatic aberrations.
