Pros: Engraved and pleasing bokeh

Cons: Weight

Opinion: I had occasion to try with a colleague all the Sigma Art series for Sony E-mount, we also did a review with AF test and handling of the whole series: Https://youtu.be/Fs8y9I-ah8Q very precise and engraved with a very fuzzy. For the photograph is a great tool, for the video.. Mmm. Shame about the weight, really much. Let's not talk about the body, basically they stretched the barrel to "incorporate" the MC-11 adapter... they could do better.

Pros: Optically perfect if you are looking for the only sharpness and bokeh, use in the studio for good sized prints is your field

Cons: Huge and delicate, images too flat and not very artistic due to the huge amount of lenses

Opinion: The perfect optics for studio use. Unfortunately it is really huge, with yes a very comfortable and precise ring, but unfortunately the dimensions limit enormously the use. Turn with two bodies on which one is present this will be a feat. On the other hand, it's a perfect lens. The MTF graph speaks clearly, the aberrations are almost not there, the astigmatism either. Canon must necessarily update its 85 1.2 L to upset similar optics (always according to terms of comparison "Nitideschi"). Compared unfortunately emerges a crushing victory of the Sigma Art. But honestly, however, I prefer the 85 1.2 L II, especially because of the micro-contrast and the more "magical" and "unique" of the photos. Unfortunately at the level of bare and raw quality this lens outclasses any 85 on the market, except perhaps the Sony 85 GM, which however apart from being Sony exclusive costs virtually twice as much. Strongly recommended for use on Sony. The set will be enormously unbalanced. Sigma has made it really crazy to produce Sigma Art e-mount attachment by simply sticking a extension cylinder on it, and the handiness suffers enormously.

Pros: Extreme sharpness all over the frame already at 1.4, nice coarse MAF bezel, standard lens hood, cosmetic

Cons: Weight and dimensions, filters 86mm, USB dock

Opinion: I had to calibrate Canon's camera support (Canon 5d II) before I could calibrate the lens with the appropriate USB dock (which would cost €50, but fortunately I borrowed it). Initially the AF went for its own business and it was not only a problem of micro-adjustment in the room. In my case it was also a room problem, which however with other 1.4 and 1.8 lenses were never there. After a long drawing between Canon assistance in Bologna and Sigma in Milan, I finally could use this lens to the full. Now the AF is accurate and fast. For now for me it is the definitive on this focal. Vignetting and chromatic aberration at 1.4 are easily read and solvable in PP. of sharpness is impossible to ask for more. The blur is "modern" and "cold". This is neither pros nor cons, it is just so, may like it or not. Maybe too easy to hate for those 10 years ago have spent €2000 for the Canon 1.2 II, who knows!

Pros: Superb image quality, sharpness even to TA

Cons: Weight and encumbrance exceeding the competition, filters 86mm

Opinion: This is an excellent optics and not just for sharpness but for all aspects of image quality for a bright. Hard to do without it after trying it for a few days. It needs fine calibration with USB dock but then, at 90%, it's fine. The residual problems, at least on 6D2, are exclusively related to AF, generally it is perfect, even to TA but suddenly can be wrong without being able to understand why or at what juns. The optics is so lofty that I don't intend to do without it, if it is in "No day" I go into live view and the shots are even better than the best in AF. I have to say that with the 6D2 and its articulated display is not a big problem use this mode indeed, once used "for necessity" I tend to use it often because an already excellent image quality becomes excellent in 100% of cases. Update: Contrary to what I thought in the end I had to do without it, the weight, size and uncertainties on the AF convinced me to cede it., for the moment rest with the excellent 85/1.8 canon from 300 euros.

Pros: Accurate and sturdy construction, very wide focus ring and excellent excursion, sharpness (if calibrated), colours, Bohek, current price.

Cons: Heavy, 86mm filters (expensive and rare), very selective focal plane, challenging autofocus to calibrate,

Opinion: This is a far from technical review... for this there are the "experts" and the professors of the Forum.. After several trials and tests, characterized by moments of euphoria alternating with others of extreme frustration, I came to some considerations. I state that I currently have the version for Nikon, while until a few months ago I had one for Canon (5DMK4), (lens) ceded for unreliability of autofocus. -The lens is very extraordinary, but only if put in optimal conditions to give the best of itself; -It's like a race horse, bizarre, demanding... it must be tamed with a firm pulse and... a lot of patience...-It is not the "easy" goal.. That as soon as the mountains go to the maximum... You have to study it, understand it... and above all you need to find the optimum calibration for a precise focus. I could use another analogy with race cars. There are relatively "easy" cars to drive, with which every good driver would be able to quickly get good lap times.. But others will prove to be much more demanding.. In addition to a more calibrated guide, they require an adequate and meticulous tuning, optimized for that particular circuit, the weather conditions, specific tires, etc. Once they're set up... the others stay behind.. To eat the dust. The "character" of the Sigma 85 Art seems to me something like that... it could be love at first sight... but it could also be a source of disappointment... If you are not able to calibrate it correctly with your camera. No use repeating it... it's obvious... but with high resolution cameras, watch out for the blur...! The lens is not stabilized.. It's heavy.. Appropriate timings should be set.
