This is a question I see coming up almost daily on various photography groups on Facebook. “I shoot Sony, should I get the Sony FE 85mm f/1.4 GM or the Sigma 85mm f/1.4 Art?”. Well, photographer Usman Dawood decided to answer this question by getting both of them. He wanted to see first hand which would better suit his needs.
In this video, we see his side-by-side comparisons of the two lenses and how they perform in the real world. Attached to his Sony A7RII, Usman talks about the good, bad and almost-non-existent differences between the two. Some of Usman’s findings surprised me, and from how he explains it, they baffled him, too.
