Good Like: This is an ideal portrait lens on either camera type. It is also a remarkable optic when used in low light. With the two Canon bodies, both of which have excellent low light performance, we were able to take photographs when almost in darkness.
Bad Dislike: We could do without the slapping noise when focussing. What causes this in Sigma lenses?...

Bottom line The Sigma AF 85mm f/1.4 EX HSM DG delivers a convincing performance on DX DSLRs. The lens is impressively sharp in the image center - even at f/1.4 - but it's comparatively softer towards the borders/corners here. However, the Sigma is nothing short o...
