I see there is no official thread yet of this high interest lens. There is a lot of 'BUZZ' about it but hard to find user images that show it's capabilities.

DPR has a gallery here:

Now please show us your images with this lens below.

I love this lens! I have shot 3 weddings and many other sessions with it so far. I wouldn't use it for personal stuff though. Its too big. I don't think Ive shot over 1.4 yet on it lol. Better make sure those blades work

Interested in hearing what your experience with the 50A is.

Consistent focus was the biggest thing. I have the dock and it didn't make that much of a difference.

Another complaint I had was the color rendition the lens produced. The colors seemed very stark. Describing color is like describing sound produced by different speaker manufactures....very difficult to do. The clincher was when the 1Dx II was released and my 50A didn't like the 1Dx II. I sold the lens shortly thereafter.

When the 85A was announced, I didn't even think about getting one until I saw some results. The 85A looks very promising.

Sigma claim that the AF motor is new improved. My practice on 1Dx2 and 5DsR have no MA needed for this lens. Believe the improvement really works in actual

I've read that claim as well. Just need a few more owners to substantiate that the new AF motor is an improvement. More encouraging news.

I think more people is concerning the 500A's AF more serious and so far none of my friends get one. I think everybody still curious about the AF speed/ accuracy on the big gun more than this small gun

Honestly, everybody that's actually curious is likely talking about it in the relevant thread.

I'm certainly curious as to the progress Sigma has made in terms of DSLR PDAF capability. If you consider the 85/1.8 USM the 'standard', where is this 85/1.4 | Art landing? That's the answer I'd like to see .

I don't have the 85/1.8 for long time, but my 85A AF already make me exciting on the speed and accuracy, just want to see if I'm lucky or the improvements really work

Man, I'd have a hard time putting down the 85/1.8 USM, even if I picked up a faster 85. It's imperfect, but it also excels where no other lens does, or is likely to, at it's given size and weight.

However, if this Sigma can compete in AF accuracy, especially during burst tracking, then that's a huge advance!

Out of curiosity I knew my 5dmkiv live view face detection was great but this time I put my 50A on for a studio toddler cake smash session. It nailed the focus id say 95% of the shots. I was amazed. It performed better then me using my normal focusing on that type of session. Yes 100% of the shots were done at f1.4

Here is a thread I started some time ago on FM. Lots of test and info, but bottom line is that focusing it excellent and speed is fast enough for all my subjects (portraits).

Word of caution: I purchased a Sigma 85 Art new, and the focus was awful. It ran the range quite quickly, and locked on speedily, but even a microadjust of +20 couldn't accommodate, though it did help. My Nikon 85 1.4G is spot on at 1.4 (though slower focusing). So buy somewhere there has a legit return policy. I was using mine on a d750. Just a heads up!

Seems like a superb lens. And really sharp wide open. But too big for my taste. And the overall colors as like any typical Sigma, colors are bit too warm. I know, nothing that post processing can't fix

Now Klaus of Photozone.de has put this lens through the paces:

http://www.photozone.de/canon_eos_ff/1000-sigma85f14art

Apart from somewhat visible bokeh fringing at f/1.4 and f/2, it SLAYS both on 21 MP and 50 MP. The latter is a rare thing among the lenses tested so far - most have been done in by the super dense large sensor.
