Sigma 85mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

Review Date: Jan 9, 2014 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $900.00 | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Wondeful bokeh, decent sharpness wide open, price, decent focus accuracy/speed, construction.
Cons:
Longitudinal CA (color fringing purple in front and green in back) @ F/1.4 and F/2

Thats is, without duby, one of the best portrait/wedding lenses. The bokeh is simply awesome, and the IQ is very decent @f/1.4, great at f2 and excellent at f2.8. The compromise price/performance is very good.

The only significant problem might be the differences on the AF quality between samples (I feel lucky to get a great sample) and the longitudinal CA, but this can be corrected with lightroom/camera raw in just a few seconds.

Review Date: Jul 24, 2012 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 9 

 
Pros: Superb construction, effective hood in all focal lengts, sharp stoped down, circular bokeh even closing, close focus
Cons:
Heavy for carry and work with it all day, some examples might be bad lenses

This is may be one of the best zoom lenses for FF. The only alternative (at least in the line of Canon's brand) is the 24-105 F4 IS. this one might be a little better with his stabilizer, zoom range, but it doesn't give the same sharpnes of this wonderful lens. 24-105 also have a heavy vignetting, but still being a good one.


24-70 have one of the best build quality I ever seen, a lens for a "war" Smile But it have some flaws, isn't perfect lens (i think that dont exist the perfect one) One of them may be the field curvature at 24mm, even at F8-10 it give some signals. Also its a lens that not all the examples have the same sharp/optical quality.


I think my lens isn't the best example but im really happy with them despite I still using APS-c (sometimes I work with a given 5D) and it gives great results in both formats, beeing best in FF, for angular vision and sharpness, of course Smile
