If you’re in the market for a new lens, it may be hard to decide whether to go for a third-party option, or stick with the same brand as your camera. The Sigma Art series has received a lot of praise, and photographer Julia Trotti put it to a test. She used the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art and compared it to the Canon 85mm f/1.2L II. In the video below, you can see how the lenses compare on Canon and Sony bodies.
I have been holding off buying a Canon / Nikon 85mm for years waiting for Sigma to release the ART version of their 85mm, so as soon at it was announced, I pre-ordered mine.
I’ve had the Sigma ART 85mm f/1.4 for a few weeks now, and I thought that I’d share my experience with this lens.
