Opinion:Best lens I've ever had. Paired with the Canon 5Ds R is just wonderful. It is higher than all expectations, perfect without any calibration. Once it's mounted, you wouldn't want to take it off anymore. Don't miss a shot, the photo comes out practically already post-produced, absurd sharpness already at full opening and blurred by scream
Pros:Sharpness, precision and AF speed, colors, blurred
Cons:I have not found
Opinion:It is one of the rare times where I remain positively impressed by the object I buy even more than my own expectations. Weight and important dimensions, solid working and "nice presence", but the qualities of this optics are especially those that are discovered during the use. An impressive 1.8 sharpness with an incredible fire precision even in situations of contrasts and light very pushed to the limit. The fuzzy and the isolation of the subject are beautiful. I bought it, I did not do any kind of calibration for my 5d Mark IV, no fine adjustments in machines even the one on USB dock I own but that doesn't seem to be necessary. I am delighted. I just hope I have opportunities to use it. I do few portraits and I would not like to keep him sleeping at home.
Pros:Frightening sharpness, medium format bokeh (Leggesi after), contained dimensions relative to the focal, price
Cons:Flatness of the image if not conveyed with flash, ring as usual extremely fragile
Opinion:Optics with frightening sharpness, and incredible bokeh. This is due to the fact that all Sigma ART lenses are designed for medium format (online test video). This allows you to reproduce an almost perfect bokeh across the frame, obviating the problem of light points to "cat's eye" intrinsic in the nature of the lenses (basically being thought for larger formats than the FF, crop the image eliminating the area Device that is the most affected, and therefore seems exempt from this problem). Unfortunately the Microcontrast has not reached, and to use it as it should, you need the help of Flash. Without the images will be flat, with nuances of faces almost non-existent. It can be an excellent tool in the hands of a professional who needs extreme nitidezze for important prints and knows how to exploit similar lenses. In the hands of an "amateur", can only pull out horrendous images, completely flat, with subjects glued on a blurry background. The PDC is very reduced to TA, and the out of focus is around the corner. This complicmakes its use even more, especially on DSLRs where the AF system punches with all the various sigmas. In essence it is a lens that I recommend exclusivations to professionals who use it in a controlled environment, on well-rigged models and being aware of what a similar lens can give. If you want to buy it just because you want the "sharpness", buy a Macro lens: You'll spend less and you'll be happier. In the hands of an "amateur" this Sigma can only make monsters, and the gallery here on Juza should better express the concept.
Cons:Really excessive weight, very long, not very versatile
Opinion:I got to test it thoroughly thanks to a friend who lends it to me frequently, that say, I have tried so far many lenses from portrait, this really surrenders them all and by far, no mistake a shot, the picture comes out pretty much already post-produced , absurd sharpness already an all-opening and blurred by scream, only problem if you want to make whole figures you have to move away over the 12-15 meters from the subject.. It is really long and therefore not suitable for small spaces, the weight is felt, even if it was known from the purchase, certainly less practical than an 85mm in a professional key/wedding, but once taken with this optics will ruin your life... You no longer want to shoot with other lenses, the 50 mm art remains in the bag..
Opinion:Maybe it's the sharpest lens I've ever had absent distortion seems like a macro optics. Construction that has nothing to do with the recent Nikon production is a bit heavy but mounted on d810 is well balanced, the autofocus is accurate and fast tested with d500 with battery grip on the sidelines in the basketball is perfect as focal length. I don't think it gets any better in this price range. Rated 10
