Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM Review

  • 4.5 / 5
    • The good:
      Good AF speed; Smart hood design; Incredible bokeh
    • The bad:
      Exposure and AF issues with some camera bodies

    Having a quality camera is essential for any occasion and there are lots of digital point-and-shoot cameras available in the market to enhance the photography skills of an amateur. If you don’t want to spend big chunks of money on a DSLR, and if you are looking for a good quality HSM lens for regular uses then Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM might be just the thing for you.

     

    This Sigma series lens has a couple interesting things going on for it. For starters, it counts with a hypersonic focus motor that allows for full-time manual focus control. Its nine-bladed diaphragm dishes out a nice background blur, and it comes with a hood adapter for APS-C DSLR users, extending the hood’s length and providing it with better shading for outside shooting. There are 11 optical elements divided in 8 groups, including a Super-Low Dispersion element (SLD) and one glass-molded aspherical element. It mounts on Canon EF, Nikon F / FX, Pentax KAF3, Sony Alpha and Sigma SA. Its aperture ranges from F16.0 to F1.4, its maximum zoom is 0.12x, and its minimum focus distance is 0.85m. However, it doesn’t count with sealing or an aperture ring, both features which some photographers might seriously miss.

     

    It is comparatively lighter than the Canon F1.2, which makes for easier handling of the equipment. Its lens hood is a 2-parter, which reduces vignetting on full-frame cameras by using a single piece which can be easily separated. Its sharpness is really memorable, especially around the center of images. That’s not to say that the corner sharpness disappoints, and it really is one of the best in its category in that regard. The Sigma F.14 EX DG HSM does suffer with AF reliability, however, as is the case with most Sigma lenses – still, it is only slightly slower than the F1.8 Canon model. It is not the best camera for fast-paced indoor action, but it does the job just fine. Its color and contrast aspect is also adequate for its price, comparing well against much more expensive products such as the F1.2. To provide a bottom-line, to this review, a couple contrasting characteristics with this Sigma lens: its communication with some cameras, such as Canon bodies, is not reliable and causes both AF issues and exposure oscillation. On the other hand, its bokeh function is nothing short of amazing.
