Depth of field is relative to max aperture diameter and focus distance, so it's likely that you'll get very similar background blur with more depth of field but more compression from the 135 with the same framing, as you'll be further away.

105mm/1.4 = 75mm
135mm/1.8 = 75mm

The max aperture diameter/entrance pupil diameter is actually the same between the two, so Nikon's 105/1.4E actually makes a bit of sense, as the natural working distance (based on field of view) of the 105 is going to be a little less than a 135, weight is going to be a little lower, size is

An obvious benefit is a lineage of focus accuracy and longer shutter speeds with the 105e.

+1 for the Canon 200mm F2.0! Whatever the Sigma 135 F1.8 is it won't be a 200mm F2.0. Yes it will be lighter and cheaper (and I likely will want one) but it won't have the same magic as the 200mm F2.0. Specs don't always tell the tale.

Sigma says that the 135 is the best Art lens they've ever produced. See video interview here:

It weighs the same as the Sigma Art 85mm - nowhere as heavy as the 200mm f/2.

If the AF and weight are good with the MC11 adapter, I could really be tempted by the 135. The 14mm looks more and more interesting each time I look at it.

Pre Ordering anything with out knowing the price it will cost you sounds like marriage.

The 100-400 at F/5 - 6.3 is as slow as molasses on a cold day.

But a pound lighter then the Canon. Not a bad idea from Sigma. Canon already has the performance market, why not go after a different demographic.

I've never pre-ordered before, but will this time. My fear is the wait time to deliver will be long, and I want the lens. If I don't like it I'll simply quickly return it. No problem. As for the 100-400 I too was skeptical. Why would I buy it rather than keep my Nikon 80-400mm f5.6? The reason is of course size & weight. The Sigma looks like a helluva an option for a small but competent travel lens. I'll likely keep the Nikon, but as a more compact & lighter option the Sigma is enticing. As for marriage, turns out I got very lucky.

True but at 2.5lbs it is still double the weight of the Canon 135 2.0 which is already excellent, I will keep the Canon just for that reason.

Because they say "Sigma" on them, I'll stick with my Canons (or Tokinas for that matter). I'm still not a believer... no matter what anyone says, Sigma=Stigma (as far as I'm concerned)

If Sigma prices the 135A in my price range, I will pick it up and evaluate it. I really enjoy using my 135L. It is a focal length I like. I've been happy with my 50A and 85A, so willing to give the 135A a try. If the 135A is the best of the Art lenses (as mentioned in the interview link above), that should be impressive.

I guess this is one of those things where "clients will never tell a difference" saying comes into play when you try to compare lenses like 105E and 135A.

Kind of a religion at this point. And of course, the price difference. However, I wouldn't be surprised if Sigma prices it's 135A at $1,600.

Looks to me that the 3 art series lenses in the video have weather sealing gaskets.

That happens after being burned time and time again with Sigma problems.

The Nikon 135 DC doesn't have os, why need it here? Do you plan on shooting in low lit areas all the time? 1/20 sec shutter? OS, really?
